Oppo N1 international rollout starts in Indonesia
Chinese smartphone maker Oppo announced the N1 phablet about a month ago. That event, though, was focused solely on the Chinese market. At the time, we were told that the handset would get out of China around December. That may happen sooner, though, because the Oppo N1 has now been announced officially in the first country outside of China.
Indonesia is where Oppo introduced the N1, at a dedicated event. It’s unclear when exactly the Oppo N1 will be available to buy in Indonesia, but the price has been unveiled: it will cost 6,999,000 Indonesian rupiah, which amounts to approximately $615 or €454 at the current exchange rates. It’s also around 3,765 Chinese yuan, making the N1 a tad more expensive in Indonesia than in China, where it’s priced at 3,498 yuan.
The model that is going to be sold in Indonesia is identical in terms of specs to the one from China. It has a a 5.9-inch 1080p Full HD IPS touchscreen, a 13 MP swiveling camera with software-adjustable LED flash, a rear touch panel, a 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of built-in storage space, HSPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3,610 mAh battery. It runs Color, an Oppo-developed OS based on Android 4.2. A CyanogenMod ROM for the N1 will be available sometime after launch.
Now that it’s finally made its debut outside of China, we’re expecting the Oppo N1 to reach more developed shores shortly.
