Even though the Oppo N1 is only scheduled for a Chinese release, the Find 5 has made the company almost global. Oppo may still be an unknown brand to the average consumer, but to Android fans, Oppo is one of the many up-and-coming Chinese manufacturers making incredible products.
The Oppo N1 is set to be their next big thing and the phone is going to be packed with all the latest specs. This starts with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 CPU, a surprising choice considering Chinese companies normally go with MediaTek.
With a new leaked image of the motherboard we got to see the Snapdragon 800 CPU for the first time and microSD slot expansion, allowing users to add 64GB of external storage onto the device. The CPU is not an LTE variant, meaning this probably will not make it to the US, unless Oppo changes the phone a bit.
On the software side, Oppo has teased a new Android skin UI, called Color. The Oppo Find 5 biggest weakness was its skin UI, it looked childish and did not work well, with occasional lag and slow loading speeds. Hopefully Color UI will bring this up to date, showing Oppo’s software touch.
Oppo is set to launch the Oppo N1 on September 23 in China, followed by launches in Asia and Europe. We may even see it in the US someday, but we doubt it will be on any carrier.
