Sure, the new Color OS from Oppo looks great, but CyanogenMod fans out there looking to get their hands on the wonderful N1 will have their wishes granted next month as the company will launch the device with the aftermarket firmware preloaded. There is however, a slight problem – The phone will be offered in limited quantities.
To sweeten the deal, the company is bundling this variant of the Oppo N1 with exclusive extra CyanogenMod accessories, but it hasn’t provided any specific information as yet. The smartphone is Oppo’s latest flagship which comes with a rather unique design. One of the main highlights here is the 13MP camera which is rotatable, making is accessible as a webcam as well. There is dual LED flash as well.
Then there’s the O-Touch feature which is a touch panel on the rear that allows you to scroll pages, make selections and even capture images without touching the display. The Oppo N1 is designed with a metal aluminum alloy frame and it’s loaded with high end specifications such as a quad core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 3610mAh battery. A large 5.9-inch 1080p IPS display sits pretty on the front with a coating of Gorilla Glass 3.
The panel proffers a pixel density of 377ppi. You get storage options of 16GB and 32GB, while there’s no expansion slot available. Accompanying the smartphone is an O-Click Bluetooth remote control which acts as a remote shutter button and allows you to locate the phone if misplaced.
