Oppo has just launched the unique looking Oppo N1 in the U.S. today as originally scheduled. The smartphone is sold unlocked and will cost $599 for the 16GB model and $649 for the 32GB variant, which isn’t a lot considering the features it packs. The smartphone is popularly known for its ability to flash CyanogenMod out of the box as part of a deal with the developer group. This will prove to be a useful feature for customers who like to play around with custom ROMs. However, the CyanogenMod variant of the smartphone will launch slightly later.
Another highlight of the smartphone is that it packs a 13MP rotating camera, which can be rotated 206 degrees to act as a front facing camera. So Oppo didn’t have to use a separate front facing camera for the smartphone as your self portraits are taken care of with the high quality 13MP sensor. The smartphone is only sold in White for the time being in the U.S.
The N1 also sports a 5.9 inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 chipset, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a large 3,610 mAh battery. Sadly for American residents, the handset doesn’t support LTE so users will have to make their peace with HSPA+ networks available through the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile.
