Oppo N1 will be released internationally on December 10, priced at $599
After much teasing, the Oppo N1 is set to finally become available internationally next week. The Chinese smartphone maker thus continues its tradition of making its newest wares available to markets outside of its homeland, which is still quite a rare thing to see as most of its competitors are focused solely on China.
The N1 was announced at the end of September as the company’s first high-end phablet. It comes with 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 easily installable, and we are expecting a special edition CM Oppo N1 to ship with the aftermarket firmware preinstalled.
The Oppo N1 will be out on December 10, priced at $599 or €449 respectively. The company announced this via its Google+ page. That means the device is cheaper than its phablet competitors from more well-known brands, which isn’t really a surprise since it was the case for the Find 5 too (Oppo’s previous flagship).
