Oppo is one of those companies that we wish had more presence outside of Asia. The company has brought us some of the hottest flagships of the year, starting with devices like the Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a, and the same can be said about the innovative swivel camera design of the Oppo N1. That particular Oppo N1 is already getting old by technology’s standards, and it seems the company is ready to give it a refresh.
Oppo has just sent out a teaser that features a rotary phone from the 1980s, and text that claims that “This was the phone.” Sadly this teaser doesn’t give out much information, but if you think about the fact that you rotate the camera of the Oppo N1 in order to use it as a selfie camera or a primary one, it could be that the hint points to this device in particular. Oppo’s Malaysia division actually spilled some beans about the topic almost claiming that we could expect to see the successor of the N1, though the interesting part about this report is that the device might be dubbed the Oppo N3 and not N2.
It could be that the jump in number is due to the existence of the Oppo N1 mini, but since we do expect this unveiling to happen in October, we’re only a couple of weeks away from knowing.
