Oppo N1 to be globally available for $599 starting December 10th


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.
