Oppo’s N1 that will arrive with CyanogenMod 10.2 right out of the box has recently passed Google’s compatibility test suite (CTS), which would more or less mean it will officially be able to support Google’s Play Store – and that translates to Oppo N1 owners being able to install apps of their choice. It is a historical moment actually, as it signifies the very first time that CyanogenMod has been certified by Google for a smartphone device. Having said that, Oppo did share that the smartphone which will run on CyanogenMod 10.2 will be made available this coming December 24th, but it remains to be seen whether it will still arrive with the $599 price tag just like the standard model.
Well, at least you now have something else to look forward to other than the Nexus and Google Play Edition handsets, if you are in the market for a close stock Android experience. It is nice to see that enthusiasts will be able to finally enjoy Google Play the legit way instead of performing a sideloading process. Would you pick up the Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod right out of the box, or would you still prefer an official stock Android experience with your smartphone purchase?
