OPPO brings out ColorOS 2.0.7i update, still KitKat flavors

If there’s any consolation for not having Lollipop on a flagship level phone these days, Chinese manufacturer OPPO seems to be saying that at the very least, they’ll give you lots of new features. Is that a consolation at all? At this point, users of the OPPO Find 7 will not have any choice but to accept the ColorOS 2.0.7i update – with lots of fixes, new features, but still distinctly and a bit disappointingly, Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

New phones get CM12 nightlies: the 2014 Moto X, Moto E, Oppo N3

Even as the corporate side of Cyanogen pushes to be profit-making and be picked up by some OEMs as the Android OS of choice for their devices, the ROM-making “CM Team” continues to put out CM12 – their Android Lollipop-flavored AOSP-based version of the CyanogenMod after-market Android software – for more and more devices out there. Today, we announce 3 more to get nightly builds – the new Moto X (2014), the Moto E, and the Oppo N3.

OPPO rumored to be working on a fast charging smartwatch

Smartwatches are relatively new. No matter how cool, sleek, classic, or luxurious a particular model looks, geeks will judge its performance and battery life. Right now, Android wear gadgets don't offer impressive battery life, at least, not yet. OPPO's smartwatch is still a rumor but the model is believed to have longer battery life thanks to the very small internal cells the manufacturer used.

OPPO’s ultra-slim R5 arrives for pre-order at Amazon UK

Those of you in the UK who are intrigued by the new OPPO R5 smartphone can now get a little hyped-up, like, right now.

Qualcomm enlists OEM support for Snapdragon 810

The growth of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip has not at all been smooth sailing – the run up of the new SoC has been plagued with performance and overheating issues. But Qualcomm has now enlisted the help of a number of major OEMs to give their stamp of approval for the new processor. In light of this, we expect consumers to still be wary, as Qualcomm has really not approached the issues head on.

OPPO U3 ready to hit the market with ‘rabbit’s tail’ technology

Yes, you read that one right — the most distinguishable part of the new OPPO U3 phablet is not its huge screen size or even its crisp sound, but a special casing with a ball of white fur on the rear cover that looks, well, like a rabbit’s tail (which is what OPPO calls it, actually). This unintentionally cute innovative tech is apparently meant to help users grip the U3 better, due to the phablet's size.

OPPO reportedly to launch OPPO R1C on January 14

The Chinese manufacturers have been busy enough this January, with Xiaomi launching its budget phone the RedMi 2 last week and reportedly lining up a January 15 launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. OPPO – legal disputes aside – looks set to be busy on January 14 as well, if the teasers be true, as they launch their new OPPO R1C 4G smart phone.

Polaroid Selfie smartphone could be in legal trouble with Oppo

When the Polaroid Selfie smartphone was launched at CES 2015, there was this sneaking feeling at the back of this tech hack’s mind that the cute rotating camera – the highlight of Polaroid’s new smartphone – looked strangely and dangerously like China-based outfit Oppo’s N1 and N3. It wasn’t long until the news finally reached Oppo, and here we are, with Polaroid in possible legal trouble for this very reason.

OPPO R5 goes Hulk, smashes everything

The Oppo R5 used to be the thinnest Android smartphone in the world but sadly, the super thin phone has been replaced by the new Vivo X5Max recently. The crown may have been snatched from Oppo R5 by a mere 0.1 mm difference but the super thin smartphone still continues to impress us with its specs and a newly posted video on YouTube will tell you why: it can smash fruits, nuts, and be run over by a vehicle.
