It was several months ago that we heard rumors of the Oppo N1 which was then confirmed. What made the device special was not because of its hardware, but rather the fact that it will be the first Android phone to come with CyanogenMod preinstalled as an option. Given that there are many Android users out there who aren’t too pleased with how manufacturers are creating their UI, CyanogenMod has been a favorite amongst the Android community as providing a more lightweight alternative. In any case the good news is that if you were thinking about getting your hands on the device, you might be interested to learn that Oppo has announced that the phone will be headed stateside come 10th of December and will retail for $599.
The handset was originally announced for the Chinese market but it was speculated that a global launch would follow soon. It was speculated that it could take place in November, but we guess those rumors did not pan out, but either way better late than never. The Oppo N1 will sport a 5.9” Full HD 1080p display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz. It will feature 2GB of RAM and will come with 16GB or 32GB storage options. The phone will also come with a 13MP camera that has the unique ability to swivel to the front or back. So, any takers?
