The official launch event for the Oppo N3 may only be a few weeks away, but that doesn’t mean that the company is going to stop teasing us about its upcoming smartphone. The official Oppo N3 render, pictured above, was recently posted on the company’s Weibo account.

We don’t have a look at the front of the handset, but the back shown a faux leather patch around the rear camera, along with a metallic looking edge around the case. It is a little tough to tell, but the border around the camera module hints that the N3 will feature a similar front-to-back swivelling camera design to the Oppo N1. The rotating 13MP Sony Exmor RS camera sensor was one of the N1’s more exciting features, and the N3 appears to have a similar dual-flash setup.

The Oppo N3 render appears quite similar to the back of the N1.

Oppo is still remaining tight-lipped about the N3’s hardware specs, but it has previously given a few details about the handset’s build quality. The Oppo N3 is said to have a version with an “aerospace grade” Aluminium-Lithium alloy case and will also feature a new customized cooling system to help keep the processor’s temperature low.

The Oppo N3 will officially launch on the 29th of October at a press event in Singapore. Is the N3 on your watch list?
