The image focuses on the precision optics used by Oppo in its new flagship but also gives a peek into what appears to be a silver ring that surrounds a square slot for fingerprint recognition. The placement of the sensor would facilitate use as it would fall under the user’s index finger while holding the phone. It’s not clear how Oppo will integrate the sensor with the phone’s software.
It’s not the first time than an Android smartphone will feature a fingerprint sensor. Samsung‘s Galaxy S5, Alpha and Note 4 sport fingerprint sensors embedded in the Home button. The HTC One Max also features a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Earlier, Oppo CEO Tony Chen had posted a Weibo message which suggested that the Oppo N3 will sport a 16MP camera sensor with 1/2.3″ size. Just like the N1, the N3’s camera lens will also be placed on a rotating swivel mount acting as both front and rear camera.
Op N3 is expected to sport a 5.9-inc 1080p display and Snapdragon 805 chipset with 3GB of RAM.
The phone is likely to be available in stainless steel or aluminum-lithium alloy body options. The phone will be unveiled on October 29.
