Oppo has introduced their latest device, the R3, and is touting it as the world's thinnest 4G LTE smartphone. Measuring just 6.3mm (0.25 inches), the R3 is thinner than other LTE devices on the market, though it's not the overall thinnest. That title currently goes to the 5.5mm Gionee Elife S5.5.

The Oppo R3 sports some mid-range specs that include a 5 inch, 1280x720 display, a 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, a 2420mAh battery, 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and the like are all thrown in for good measure. On the exterior is an 8MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facer and microSD slot. The R3 runs on Android 4.3 with Oppo's ColorOS.

The Oppo R3 will be available in China this week for 2,299CNY (around $370USD). We're not sure if it will be available in any other regions in the near future.
