Once in a while, the focus of attention isn’t on widely recognized Android brands but on products from smaller players. The Oppo N1 is one such smartphone that touts a powerful set of features, as well as innovative photo-taking functionalities.
As a flagship device, the Oppo N1 sports a 5.9-inch IPS display with full HD resolution. It’s powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, with an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB RAM. Internal storage options are 16GB and 32GB, with no microSD expansion. The back of the handset is notable for its O-Touch feature, an integrated touchpad that receives user gestures to, say, play the next song or surf the Internet. When ordering online, Oppo also lets users choose which OS (either the company’s own ColorOS or CyanogenMod) they want in the N1.
Pictures taken of oneself, aka the selfies, will certainly be more fabulous thanks to the 13MP camera. It comes with six physical lenses, dual LED flash, and a Fujitsu IPS imaging chip. More importantly, the camera can be easily rotated, allowing it to be either a rear- or front-facing shooter as needed.
Available in either black or white, the Oppo N1 will cost users $571. No official worldwide availability has been announced.
