So Oppo has recently announced that their Oppo N1 handset with CyanogenMod will be seeing a global launch on the 10th of December, but it looks like the Chinese company still has some handsets up its sleeves as they have announced by way of their official Sina Weibo account (China’s version of Twitter) that the Oppo R1 will be arriving in the second half of December, although it does not mention as to whether this will be limited to China or will it see a global release like the Oppo N1. Unlike the N1 which is larger at 5.9” with a Full HD display, the R1 appears to be slightly lower-specced.
According to the rumored specifications, the Oppo R1 is said to sport a 5” display with a resolution of 960×540. It will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, although it is unknown who is the manufacturer. The R1 will also come with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, with the main camera expected to offer “stunning” images even when taken in low-light conditions. Given that there are phones out there that are able to do that, such as the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the LG G2, we’re curious to see if Oppo will be able to deliver on that promise.
