We were one of the first websites to report about the upcoming OPPO U3 smartphone. Now, we have received a set of tech specs and pricing of the OPPO U3. If these specs and pricing does turn out to be true, then we’ll soon see a mid-range large screen phablet in the market.
As per the leak as well as the TENAA listing, the OPPO U3 comes with a 5.9-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Inside, there will be a 64-bit 1.7GHz MT6752 octa-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. On the front, there will be a 5MP camera while at the back there will be a 13MP shooter. There is no word on the 4X Optical Zoom that we heard earlier. The phone will measure 8mm in thickness, which isn’t thin as per today’s standards, but is quite average for a 5.9-inch device. It will weigh 180 grams which is also quite decent for a device of this size. There will be a 3000 mAh battery onboard which will reportedly support VOOC fast charging technology.
Finally, the device will be priced at 2798 Yuan, which comes to around $451. This makes it a bit costlier than other offerings in the market like the Honor 6 Plus, OnePlus One, Xiaomi Mi4 and even the Meizu MX4. But OPPO is known for its exaggerated price tag, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.
Overall, the phones comes loaded with good specs, but if this price tag turns out to be real, then OPPO U3 may find it hard to compete with other smartphones in the market.
We have already seen a bunch of photos of the upcoming device in our previous article. We have added a few here, but check out the rest from the above given link.
So, what do you think about the leaked pricing of the OPPO U3? Will you buy one for $450?
