After laying low for a while, Oppo has launched a new smartphone in India – The Oppo Mirror 3 priced at 16,990 INR. Competitive pricing hasn’t been the forte for Oppo, a Chinese manufacturer trying to establish a firm presence on the ground, rather than opting for the online exclusive route.

The Oppo Mirror 3 is also selling as Oppo 3000 in china, But in China it comes with 4G LTE support. The 64 bit handset is powered by 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 quad core processor running Android 4.4 KitKat based Color OS 2.01. The handset is fitted with a 4.7 Inch IPS LCD display with 720p HD resolution.

The chipset is supported by 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, which can be further expanded by another 128 GB using MicroSD card. There is an 8 MP rear camera (SONY IMX179 BSI sensor)with LED flash and a 5 MP front facing unit which has been designed for good quality selfies.

The imaging hardware is the main highlight of this device. The camera incorporates a PI 2.0+ technology that includes snap shot offering depth of field, Double Exposure, selfie mode, Beautify Mode 3.0 and more. Coming from a company that gave us VOOC fast charging, we are inclined to think this might add value to the device.

Oppo Mirror 3 is 8.95 mm thick and quiet light in weight at 126 grams. Other features include a moderate 2000 mAh battery, 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.

The smartphone technology is constantly evolving. We are excited to introduce Mirror 3 to our picture-loving Indian customers. It comes with phenomenal camera quality. No matter day or night, the image quality taken from a Mirror 3 smartphone is greatly enhanced as a result of increased CMOS sensitivity, higher resolution, and effective filtering for infrared light. This packed with a host of other features gives the consumer a power packed selfie experience.”, said Tom Lu, CEO, OPPO Mobiles India.
