Oppo N1, the Chinese company’s top end flagship that we unboxed earlier, will be available for purchase globally for $599, starting December 10th of this year. The N1 is a 5.9 inch device that aims to be address the current trend of gargantuan phones that bridge the gap between phones and tablets. But Oppo adds its own twists in the form of a rotating camera that lets you take full 13 MP resolution selfies, a rear touch sensor called O-Touch that lets you navigate the screen easily and the choice of your operating system in the form of feature rich Color OS or AOSP based Cyanogen Mod. These features and choices make the N1 a little bit more interesting than the other 6 inch devices, let alone the magnificent build quality. Anyways, if you are looking to get this phone, you will be able to purchase it at OppoStyle.com which ships globally and even some other retailers depending on your country, for 599 USD or 449 EURO.
Here is a quick look at the specifications of the Oppo N1 –
- 5.9 inch full HD 1920×1080 IPS LCD display
- Dimensions – 170.7 x 82.6 x 9 mm Weight – 213g
- 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 with Adreno 320
- 16/32 GB ROM, 2 GB RAM
- 13 Megapixel Stacked CMOS Sony sensor with dedicated ISP
- F2.0 Aperture, Dual LED flash and 1080p Video recording
- 3G, USB OTG, WiFi ac 5GHz, WiFi Direct, WiFi Display support
- 3610 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 – Color ROM pre-installed, unlocked bootloader
As you can see, the device is pretty stocked with most specifications that one would want in a high end device, but admittedly it’s a bit late. Most of the market is now moving to 20MP cameras and Snapdragon 800 Processors, but then again, the build quality and the camera performance is likely to be unique in comparison to other smartphones, and the unlocked price is not bad either. We have the device with us, so we will be letting you know our opinions on this product in a full fledged review, so till then, stay tuned to the blog, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
