A few weeks ago we picked up on rumors that Oppo, a mobile phone manufacturer based in China, was launching a new “N-lens” smartphone that would give the likes of HTC One and Lumia 1020 a run for their money. It was rumored that this Oppo smartphone would challenge the camera quality of both of these devices. We’ve come to know since then that this smartphone is going to be called Oppo N1 and that it will be released next month. Today Oppo has confirmed that the N1 launch takes place on September 23rd.
The leaked specs of Oppo N1 suggest that it will have a 5.5 inch full 1080p HD display. Under the hood it is expected to have a NVIDIA Tegra 4 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The Oppo N1 is also said to have buttons on the back, much like the LG G2. For pricing and availability information we’ll have to wait until next month. It remains to be seen if this smartphone will be offered outside of China. Usually Chinese manufacturers don’t release their smartphones outside of some major Asian markets. Will the Oppo N1 meet the same fate? We’ll find that out for sure at the event on September 23rd. [Image via GSMInsider]
