Next Smartphone Trend: Waterdrop Notch, Starting With Oppo R17 And F9

The dust for Oppo R15 has barely settle, but already, Oppo is pushing out the next R phone, the R17. Not only that, the China handset maker has also sort of announced a new device called F9. Both devices, while differing in design and specifications, have one thing in common: water drop notch. Oppo is coining the display with this notch as “waterdrop screen.” It could be the next trend in smartphone design. As you can see, it is still a notch, but now, it is a lot less Apple iPhone X-like and resemble more of that Essential Phone’s.

Oppo Find X Is All Screen, No Notch And Pop-up Selfie Camera

It seems like Oppo is emphasizing on EU and North America more today when it announced the new flagship called Find X before its official revealing in China on June 29. But that’s not the reason why our attention is Oppo Find X. It is the all screen and no notch design that drew us to it. Sadly, there’s nothing revolutionary in achieving this true edge-to-edge display. There’s no camera hidden behind the display. Well, technically, it has, but not in the way you thought it is.

Oppo Introduces R7 Plus, a Slim Huge Phone with a Huge Battery Pack

Don’t ask how we managed to miss this beautiful handset coming from Chinese handset maker Oppo. We don’t have the answer, but I guess it is better late than never, right? Dubbed R7 Plus, this latest Android device from Oppo is HUGE, packing a glorious 6-inch Super AMOLED display with 2.5D arc surface (basically, a fancy name for curve edge glass) and despite its super slim 7.75 mm thinness, the Chinese handset maker managed to squeeze a 4,100 mAh lithium-polymer battery in it. Power comes from a Qualcomm MSM8939 chip with octa-core processor (four cores clocking at 1.5GHz and another four at 1GHz), backed by 3GB of RAM. Storage comes in at 32GB, but can be further expanded with the use of microSD card. Speaking of microSD card, this same slot is also a SIM card tray if you’re going for its dual SIM functionality.

Oppo N1 Successor, N3, Has a Motorized Swiveling 16MP Camera

Slightly over a year ago, Chinese handset maker Oppo wowed us with the world’s first swiveling camera smartphone and to be honest, we kind of swept it to the “novelty” category. Meaning we never thought it will go further than on the N1. I guess we were wrong, because the successor to last year’s flagship, dubbed N3, retains the same swiveling camera offering 206o of rotation, but this time it tops the megapixel race with a 16MP shooter paired to f2.2 lens and it is motorized. The latter is kind of a big deal. Why? Because it is a high-tech geeky feature, allowing to quickly flip the camera with a flick on the screen, or with the Touch Access (aka fingerprint scanner), or with the O-Click 2.0. Like its predecessor, the keychain-friendly O-Click 2.0 connects to your N3 via Bluetooth and also serves as a remote shutter, music controller, phone finder, and it can be used to take calls too. This part of the camera also gets a cosmetic tweak; it appears to dressed in fancy stitched leather, likely to be faux leather, though we can’t be sure if it so.

Oppo Joins The Mini Bandwagon With N1 mini and a Find 7 Lookalike mini

Oppo BDP-103D Blu-ray Player Darbee Edition

thirteen is the number of articles here tagged with Blu-ray Player, which kind of explains the rarity of this medium in today’s context. Blu-ray player is hardly the first choice device for home entertainment needs, now that streaming has taken the crown as the preferred medium, but the Oppo BDP-103D Blu-ray Player begs to differ and you will want this in your living if you are dead serious about having a beefy A/V system. it is loaded with features that both audiophiles and videophiles could only dream of, including 4K upscaling, 2D to 3D conversion, DVD audio and Super Audio CD playback (yes, those still exists), in addition to access to popular entertainment network such as Netflix, VUDU, CinemaNow, Pandora and Rhapsody, just to name a few.

Oppo N1 Smartphone

not that we want to sneer at iPhone 5s’ fingerprint scanning feature, but we seriously think Apple needs more than a 64-bit architecture and fancy fingerprint scanner to be worthy of being called innovative or breakthrough. if the company’s shares performance is any indication, the new iPhones are anything but groundbreaking and we are now seeing China mobile makers being the groundbreaker instead. case in point: the Oppo N1 Smartphone. obviously, by the name itself, it is just another Android-powered smartphone, but we reassure that it has more to offer than the ‘regular’ mega-size smartphones. kicking of innovation list is a 206 degrees rotating 13MP shooter with an f/2.0 6-element lens and dual LED flash that lets you capture 13MP stills at variety of angles, which means your self portraits (aka selfie) will be just as awesome as any of the back facing shots.
