Google has launched its latest smartphone, the ‘Oppo’ — and it has a high-resolution camera, too.
The new phone features a 3.7-inch display, a 16MP camera, 2,300mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner and an optical image stabilization system, according to Google.
Google also claims that the phone’s built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities mean that the smartphone will work with the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, which is already available on many smartphones and tablets, but it is unclear whether the new phone can also be used with older Android versions.
Google hasn’t revealed when the phone will go on sale, but we know that it is scheduled to be available in the first half of the year.
Google’s new phone comes as Android faces a new round of criticism over the security vulnerabilities in its operating system.
A spate of vulnerabilities were discovered in the last month that could have been used to compromise an entire smartphone’s security.
While the latest Android vulnerabilities were not directly related to Google, Google has since been forced to shut down its Android software development lab after a series of security vulnerabilities were found in its open source software.
The company has also been forced by regulators to temporarily disable access to a portion of its Chrome browser that could be used by criminals and hackers to compromise the security of people’s computers.

The phone will come with a two-year contract and a free Wi-fi adapter.
