Oppo has officially announced its upcoming device called the Oppo N1 Mini last May 30. The device is the smaller version of the company’s Oppo N1 and despite having the “mini” branding; it’s actually a pretty large device with a 5-inch display. The company came up with this model as the original N1 with its 6-inch display is reportedly unwieldy for most customers.
The Oppo N1 Mini shares several same features as the bigger version. The most notable feature is the same rotating camera that can be used for front or back shots. There’s also the touch pad feature on its back panel. This smaller version weighs in at 150 grams and supports LTE networks. It runs on Color OS 1.4 and comes with several interesting features such as a 13 MP Sony 6 lens camera with a 1/3.2″ sensor size (the same used in the N1). There’s also a Super Zoom mode that allows photos to be taken in 24MP quality.
Oppo has yet to announce the full features of this device. The company will be hosting an event this June 10 where it’s very likely that more details surrounding the N1 Mini will be revealed.
Right now we can only speculate as to what this model will be using. We already know that it will have a 5-inch display but we still don’t know what its resolution is going to be. Then there’s also the question as to what processor it will be using. Earlier reports suggest that the device will use a MediaTek MT6592 SoC while other reports suggest that it’s going to use an Exynos 5422 octa-core chipset. There’s also the possibility that the company may follow the standard set by the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact which is a smaller Z1 model that uses the same hardware specs.
The Oppo N1 Mini is expected to hit the market this coming June 11 with a still to be announced price.
