Oppo N3 with a side rotating camera [RUMOR]

Oppo N3 with a side rotating camera [RUMOR]

Oppo set a really high standard last year with its Oppo N1 flagship device. Though a lot of people would not have expected, that a phone from a rather unfamiliar company would be see good, right down to the minutes detail of the packaging of the device. Rumors have it that Oppo are coming up with a successor to their last years flagship smartphone. The Oppo N1 was the first Android powered smartphone to have a rotating shooter, that served as a 13 megapixel front and back camera. The new device according to sources will be called the Oppo N3. Kind of weird, considering they jumped straight to the number 3. Where did number 2 go? A few renders of the device have popped up, the recent one really caught our attention. Like you can see the device looks very premium and the body is rumored to be made of some aluminum and lithium mixture. The main talking point about this device though is the camera. As we can see the device has a rotating camera on the side of the device, which slides out when required. As you can see in the device next to it, the camera has been nicely tucked in. Pretty impressive, don’t you think so? Another specification rumors include a 5.9 inch Full HD 1080p display, 3GB RAM and could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor. The device is also likely to come with VOOC rapid charging found in the Oppo Find 7. All these are just rumors at this point, but it would be really cool, if they pan out. Don’t you think? What are your reactions on Oppo’s next innovative smartphone? Yay or...

Could this be the Nexus 6? [Leaked Picture and Specs]

Could this be the Nexus 6?  [Leaked Picture and Specs]

If stock OS’s are your thing, then you are most probably waiting for the next generation Nexus device. According to sources, Google will launch the Nexus 6 by the end of this year. We might even get to see it as early as October 15-16th when Google is expected to be holding an event. A Leaked image of the back of the device  codenamed “Shamu” had been found hovering the web last week, but it resembles the back of the Moto X 2014 Edition, so we are not too sure. Though, we know that the next Nexus device is being made by Motorola and Google has confirmed that their next flagship device will be called “Nexus 6”. The device is said to have a 5.9 inch QHD display (2560 x 1440), a 13MP camera at the back with dual ring flash, two front facing speakers (similar to the Moto X), a 3200+mAh battery and the device is covered with an aluminum frame. The device is also rumored to have Motorola’s Turbo charge feature, which enables the device to last for around 8 hours on a 15 minute charge. The device will be running on Google’s upcoming Android L operating system, which is also expected to launch later this month. Android Police had made a render of the device which you can see above. The battery and the signal icons are now solid and do not have a break in them like the one found in the current KitKat (Android 4.4) version. This may not bode well for those who prefer devices with smaller screen sizes, as 5.9 inch is quite big. This is all the news we have so far about the device, What do you think about Google’s next...

Leaked Images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung’s Unpacked Event is still a few weeks away and leaks for the their next flagship device are already all over the web. Now the leaks could be very well made renders or you could be looking at the actual Galaxy Note 4. The device looks pretty similar to the current Galaxy Note 3 but only from the front, the back and sides are a whole different matter though. The back of the device seems to have a plastic faux leather-like texture, but the sides seems to be metal (similar to the upcoming Galaxy Alpha). So we might see Samsung, going for a mix metal and plastic body this time around. The device seems to be 5.7 inches and will most probably come with a QHD (2560×1440) display. Next to the camera is the heart rate scanner, so where is the UV scanner everybody is talking about? The lower end of the device seems to be housing the S-Pen and a 3.0 USB port with a speaker grill.  To add to these pictures credibility there is even a picture of the retail box.   Well Samsung are unveiling their next flagship device on September 3rd, six days before Apple takes out the iPhone 6. So, we’ll just have to wait and see if these pictures are actually real or not! Till then we welcome all speculation, so guys keep them coming! Source: GSM...

Turn your Smartphone into a DSLR with the Oppo Smart Lens [Images Leaked]

Turn your Smartphone into a DSLR with the Oppo Smart Lens [Images Leaked]

A while back Sony came up with the first ever NFC attached extended lens for a smartphone or a tablet. Now its Oppo’s turn to make your smartphone into an all out DSLR. Leaked images of the Oppo Smart Lens have surfaced on the site GizChina which look exactly like a DSLR’s detachable lens.  The Oppo Smart Lens works on NFC as well as WiFi, and has nothing to do with the smartphone’s built in camera as the pictures suggest. The lens unlike Sony’s QX10 and QX100 has its own physical power button and it connects via NFC when attached to the device and I guess the WiFi feature maybe when using the lens for remote shooting. The Oppo Smart Lens has 10x zoom, while rumors for a 15x zoom model are very strong as well. The device in the picture which the lens in attached to is the Oppo 7 , and if it connects via NFC then using on Non- Oppo devices wouldn’t be a problem. Lets hope that is the case as the lens won’t come...
