Oppo Announces The Octa-Core and 64 Bit U3 Phablet

Oppo recently announced a new upper-range phone in its Android line-up, the U3. Rumors suggested that it would have 4X Optical Zoom but now that we’ve seen the official specs, that is not the case.

It has a 5.9″ display with 1080p Full HD resolution. The phone has quite a low carbon footprint and has an 8mm waistline. The company is also offering a Rabbit Tail case with fur at the bottom to improve grip.

Underneath, you get a 64-bit 1.7Ghz octa-core MediaTek 6752 processor with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, which is also expandable. At the back is a 13 megapixel camera with Sony IMX214 sensor and LED Flash. It also houses a few software tricks including a 50 mp panorama. The 5 megapixel front-camera comes with a wide-angle lens.

The software running is Android 4.4.4 KitKat, customized by Oppo. The battery capacity is 3,000 mAh, and supports fast-charging, meaning it can reach 75% of its capacity in 30 minutes.
