Chinese technology major, Oppo Electronics Corp on Wednesday (29 October) officially unveiled two flagship smartphones - N3 and R5.

"At OPPO, we firmly believe that our customers deserve a product that is specially designed for them. Design matters because it transforms technology from a tool into an essential part of our day to day life. OPPO's N3 was built and designed with our users in mind. We took what our users loved about the N1 and made it even better. The N3 is a perfect demonstration of our commitment to design and innovation," said Sky Li, General Manager of OPPO's overseas mobile phone business.

"This phone (Oppo R5) has been developed with the end user in mind. We used cutting edge manufacturing techniques to create a phone that fits perfectly into the users' hands, and that feels incredible. The frame has been forged nine times and then finished by hand to give a perfect sheen and feel. It has a quality that is not available anywhere else in the industry," he added.

Oppo R5 is touted as the world's slimmest smartphone having just 4.8 mm thickness. It beats the Gionee Elife S5.1, which was holding the Guinness world record of being the thinnest handset in the market.

Oppo R5 flaunts a 5.2-inch full HD (1920x1080p) AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 3 shield and houses 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 series Octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, 13.0-megapixel main camera, 5.0-megapixel snapper on the front and a 2,000 mAh battery.

On the other hand, Oppo N3 sports the same design language seen in its predecessor, but comes incorporated with a major upgrade in terms of internal hardware, which include motorised swiveling 206-degree 16-megapixel camera, which can act as both main and front snapper, according to the convenience of the user. It can also be operated by a finger-print sensor on the rear-side as well as from a Bluetooth based O-Click camera accessory.
