Do you know what the world’s lightest metal element is?”. The company has revealed in a post on Weibo that the handset will feature a metal casing made from lithium alloy body. Oppo has also teased another image that shows the Oppo N3 being carried away by a bunch of balloons thereby again indicating the light weight of the phone due to the use of lithium aluminium case.
