Oppo Announces New N1 Android-Powered Smartphone

Oppo New N1

Yesterday, at an event in Beijing, OPPO announced its third Android-powered smartphone of 2013, the N1, which comes packed with some pretty impressive specifications, and a mass of unique new features that no other devices on the market currently offer, one of which being the official support of CyanogenMod.

The N1 sports a hefty 5.9-inch 1080p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a colossal 3,610 mAh battery.

One of the most appealing features on this phone is its 13-megapixel rotating camera, which can be flipped to the front of the device in order to take incredibly high quality selfies, or left at the back to take some impressive HD pictures.

The shooter boasts 1/3.96-sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. In addition, the N1 also comes with six built-in lenses, which automatically detect your environment and switches to the most suitable lens – which Oppo claims is a “first” for any Android device.

The N1 will ship with Oppo’s “O Click” a new portable accessory, that can be attached to a keyring and used to control the device through Bluetooth 4.0. “O Click” can be used to remotely take pictures using the phones on-board camera and sound an alarm if the handset is lost or stolen.

In addition, Oppo’s flagship smartphone also features a touchpad on its backplate – similar to the LG G2’s – which enables users to scroll and navigate around the phone by moving their finger along the back of the N1.

Oppo’s N1 is expected to launch in China next month, and the company has given no indication of any plans to release the device outside of its home country.
