OPPO N3 & R5 In UAE
N3 & R5, 2 of OPPO’s Premium-Tier Smartphones
Since its first smartphone launching in 2008, this Guangdong, China headquartered company has solidified its status in the mobile market.
Just recently, OPPO launches two of their premium-tier smartphones in the United Arab Emirates. The OPPO N3 and OPPO R5.
Performance wise, this phone is undeniably at par with current leading smartphones available in the market. It has the processor 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad-Core (MSM8974AA), same technology used in BlackBerry Passport.
It has full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), 403 PPI which is a bit lower compared to other brands, but the phone still promises great user experience with the Multi-touch, Capacitive screen, Gorilla Glass 3.
If you have noticed some similarities of features and specs from other smartphones, the N3 still has a number of add ons. The rotating camera is just one. The feature gives convenience to users who love selfies and this can be very much useful as well for all YouTubers when making videos.
Aside from the rotating camera, its built-in photo caption feature is considered a good second add on. Many image-post loving teens would love this, as captioning no longer requires downloading of an app which is normally done with other phones. Not to mention its German precision optics Schneider Kreuznach for its lens.
The phone also has this promise: “a five minute charge gives you a two hour phone call. 30 minutes will restore 75% of the N3’s battery.” The only concern here is the overall battery performance when the motorized rotating camera is in use and/or with the O-click remote control.
This second OPPO phone has its minimalist design. A look that can be likened to iPhones. Compared to its sibling N3, R5’s specs are minimal as well. Take the processor which is only 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa Core CPU. A bit lighter too with 155 g compared to N3’s 195 g.
Now, talking about its display, R5 is one level up than to N3. It has full HD too (1920 x 1080 pixels) but with 423 PPI which is the differing factor. That simply indicates more clarity and crystal clear display. Another difference is that it has only 13-Megapixel rear Sony camera and it’s fixed. Although both have same battery charging performance but is believed to be more beneficial to R5 since it doesn’t have the (battery-draining) rotating camera.
When it comes to camera, N3 has its wonder as well. Especially the intelligently-added feature “Snap first, focus later.”
We are very pleased to introduce the OPPO N3 and R5 to the UAE as these two flagships models demonstrate our commitment to design, innovation and dedication to the region,” said Henry Tang, GCC Regional Sales Manager. “The N3 and R5 were created with users in mind, addressing consumer needs by creating and materializing the best technology.
Depending on your requirements, both are definitely good options for your next smartphone purchase. Both Runs with ColorOS 2.0, based on Android 4.4 Kitkat Operating System. Though both were launched at the same time here, only the R5 yet is available at Sharaf DG and Jumbo Electronics stores across the UAE and retails for AED 1899. N3 to follow very soon.
