The Chinese market now sees yet another device that is capable of 4G LTE connectivity – the Oppo 3000, with some mid-range specs and a price of CNY 1,599, which is about US $250. A rather simple device with no humongous numbers, the Oppo 3000 comes with a 4.7-inch HD display, and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Oppo’s Color OS 2.01.
The device is internally powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor (64-bit SoC) clocking at 1.2 GHz, along with Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB RAM. It has 8GB internal storage and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion up to 128GB. Although 4G capable, the Oppo 3000 isn’t limiting itself to a single SIM capability, as there is Dual SIM with Dual standby.
There is a Sony IMX179 8-megapixel sensor on the back, with f/2.0 aperture and 5-element lens, while on the front, there’s a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera. Apart from 4G LTE (with China Unicom), there is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC as well, for the connectivity. The device has a 2000 mAh battery packed in, with the proprietary Quick Charging 2.0 technology charger shipping in the package.
The design looks as good as it has been with several recent smartphones from Oppo, and there is a pattern on the back that should add to the looks as well as comfort. Right now, only the white one is available in China, and the Black unit is unavailable. The device is 8.95mm thick, and the two SIM card slots in it, are capable of taking MicroSIM cards.
There is no word about the availability of the Oppo 3000 outside of China, though we expect it to be hitting Indian market as well as other countries where Oppo is operating, anytime soon.
