Meet the new Oppo N3 -- it has a 16-megapixel swivel camera that now swivels back and forth thanks to a tiny motor.

The phone is otherwise rather plain, it has to be said.

You can flip the camera around to take great 16-megapixel selfies.

The phone is pretty thick too, at 9.9mm.

What's annoying is the N1 was only 9mm thick.

The new four button O-Click accessory lets you control the camera and can also be used to locate your phone should you misplace it.
