Oppo will be pushing out 2 new models this early in the year.
First up to be launched is their MediaTek-based U3 model. The U3 will feature the powerful MT6752 64-bit octa-core chipset that is based on the ARM Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.7GHz. The GPU stashed along with it is a dual core Mali T760.

The U3 will be packed with 2GB of RAM storage and 16GB ROM storage that is further expandable. It will feature a huge 5.9 inch screen with 1080p resolution display. Additional information includes an embedded AK4961 audio chip, and a 13MP rear camera.
Making statements with their phone cameras seems to be Oppo’s style. They look to be intent on stepping over the ZenFone Zoom (and its 3x optical zoom) as the U3’s primary rear camera is supposedly equipped with 4x optical zoom. The pricing and international availability is yet to be seen.
Another Oppo phone arriving is the R1C. This model has a Qualcomm-based SoC. It will be equipped with a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM storage.
The phone will be encased in two layers glass, with the rear panel rumored to be Sapphire glass
The R1C will feature a 5.0 inch screen with 720p resolution display. The camera set is a 13MP rear shooter with a 5MP front-facing camera. A 2420mAH battery will be responsible for powering up the device.
The phone will be encased in two layers glass, with the rear panel rumored to be Sapphire glass. The price tag is reported to fall around the $400 range, while international availability is still waiting to be confirmed.
It seems Oppo really knows how to stun their audience with monster specs. Too over-the-top or righteously-designated feature phones? Let us know what you think.
