Oppo has unveiled two smartphones joining its R-series of mobile devices. The R7 and the R7 Plus are similar-specification smartphones equipped with five-inch and six-inch 1080p AMOLED displays respectively, with each offering narrow bezels to the sides of the screen and Oppo's continued efforts to design a thin smartphone, with the R7 measuring 6.3mm while the Plus is 7.75mm thick.
Chinese smartphone producer Oppo may be joining the smartwatch market with its own device, with an interesting power system. The manufacturer is apparently going to counter the woeful day-long battery life that currently plagues smartwatches by making the recharging process as quick as possible, with claims that Oppo has managed to get this down to as short as five minutes.
Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Oppo has revealed two new smartphones it is planning to ship in the near future. Teased earlier this month, the Oppo N3 has a revolving camera module at the top capable of rotating on it's own, while the Oppo R5 aims to take the slimmest-smartphone crown, with its metal body measuring just 4.85mm thick.
Chinese phone manufacturer Oppo has started to tease the follow-up to the N1 smartphone. The Oppo N3 will allegedly have a large rotating camera module, a unique feature similar to its predecessor, though this time it is tipped to use an electric motor to swivel the camera around from the front to the back, rather than relying on the user to move it themselves.
Oppo has unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Find 7, as well as a more restrained version in the form of the Find 7a. Offering a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1440x2560 and a pixel density of 538ppi, the Find 7 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5GHz, supported by an Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
Chinese phone manufacturer Oppo has launched a new smartphone in Indonesia. The Oppo Neo is a mid-range device sporting an 854x480-resolution 4.5-inch display, and though it does not have the resolution and specifications of the recent Oppo N1, the Neo does offer an extra-sensitive screen that is claimed to be responsive even if the user wears gloves.
Owners of the standard version of the Oppo N1 are able to download and install the CyanogenMod ROM for the device. The ROM, replacing the ColorOS version of Android offered with the device by default, has been customized to take advantage of some of the built-in hardware, reports Android Central. Support for the rotating camera and the O-Click Bluetooth remote control are included in the ROM, which can be downloaded from the Oppo Forums.
Oppo has launched another mid-range smartphone in China, while another recent release has been spotted flying another company's colors. The Oppo N1 has been photographed with Pepsi branding as a promotional limited-edition device, and the Oppo R1 offers a 5-inch IPS display, a resolution of 720x1280, and a thickness of just 7.1mm.
Oppo may have its eye on becoming the first smartphone manufacturer to take advantage of the latest and greatest chip technology from Qualcomm, packing a Snapdragon 805 into the forthcoming Find 7. Additionally, GizChina reports, the new device could pack a 2K display, delivering one of the highest-resolution screens on any handheld device. The handset will also apparently have 4G connectivity, which will greatly help it compete in the Chinese market.
Chinese phone manufacturer Oppo has revealed it will be shipping the N1 to the United States and Europe, starting from December 10th. The smartphone, originally launched in September, offers a unique 13-megapixel camera in a rotatable housing, allowing it to be used on both the front and back of the smartphone, as well as for alternative camera angles.

Apple rolls out Arabic version of Apple.com
Apple has rolled out a new version of its Apple.com website for Arabic language users in the United Arab Emirates. The site utilizes a right-to-left reading format where it has been updated, although the upgrade is still in progress with a number of page links still in the original English language left-to-right format. Of particular note is that the site debuts an all-new custom Arabic font created by the Tarek Atrissi Design agency, giving it a highly contemporary look and feel. The new support for Arabic on its host website follows the introduction of full support for right-to-left languages in iOS 9, and the addition of Arabic support to Siri late last year. http://apple.co/20JHGIM
Adobe previews Photoshop content-aware crop
Adobe has previewed a new 'content-aware crop' feature from the next version of its Photoshop CC. The new feature is similar to its 'content-aware fill' from the current version of Photoshop CC, and potentially saves users time when cropping photos in a way that might otherwise leave blank white space in the frame. Adobe's 'content-aware' tech automatically assesses the blank space and seamlessly fills the blank space with the nearest related content in the space when a photo is expanded or rotated without the need to manually clone that part of the image. The feature allows users to move a horizon by adding more sky or ground, change the aspect ratio by adding content around the edges of the image and fill in the corners of an image when rotated during a crop. Adobe says the feature is coming soon and will be automatically available to Creative Cloud subscribers. http://adobe.ly/20JDFEu
