Limited Edition OPPO N1 With CyanogenMod Shipping in December

OPPO N1

Back in September, OPPO announced an interesting partnership with CyanogenMod, one that would allow the custom ROM to be baked right onto the device from the manufacturer, making it the first real device of its kind. The N1 features very unique hardware, such as the back/front-facing camera that is completely flippable. OPPO finally announced availability for the N1 this morning, stating that the device will be available starting in December to anyone looking to order. 

In terms of specs, the N1 is no slouch. It features¬†a large 5.9″ 1080p display, 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13MP shooter and dual-LED flash.

Cost of the device is said to be around $570. Who here is thinking about picking one of these extremely unique devices up?

    Having played with it in hand a few things:

    Great build quality. First impressions just kept making me think that there’s no reason devices like the Note 3 and GS series shouldn’t be better built, especially being $699 retail.

    As to the camera, I figured that would be the first thing to fall apart after seeing the concept, but it feels very solid.

    It’s huge; there will be a mini version released at some point most likely and many people will find it to be a welcome addition.

    Little features like backswipe and the factory music widget are great. Even better that CM versions are available and that Roms will be easily flashable on these devices.

    Awesome device, but I will agree that with it launching so late with that S600 processor it may be a harder sell for some people. It is definitely worth checking out if you’re on a carrier that it’s compatible with though.

    And no LTE. Nope.

    People who are complaining about the price. Its a Lower Volume Company so things cost more. Hopefully the Quality is very good.

    I just got my oppo N1 today. I was chosen to be one of their 10 pioneers. :)

  • Boblank84

    interested in oppo as i like the look of the find 5. this, not so much, too big imo. would have checked out the find5 if it wasn’t for the nexus 5.

    “In terms of specs, the N1 is no slouch..” until you mention LTE.

  • marko358

    I’m starting to get the feeling from reading various android blogs that there is no device that would ever make anyone happy. :D

    • Bootleg Zani

      Sure there is. It is called Nexus 5.

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        Not to us who want it on VZW :P

        • Pedro

          Oh, but it WOULD make you happy.
          You just choose to not own it :)

            for some, but for others the network coverage you have to assume is sub-par…..

          • Pedro

            I gotcha. Everyone’s coverage is different.

            I stuck with VZW for an extra 6 months because I believed the coverage advantage. Once the N4 came out, it gave me the opportunity to check where I live and where I traveled. Best case, the N4 proved I could leave. Worst case, I was still with VZW, but I had a better phone than the crappy flip thing work gives me for international stuff. And only out $390, delivered to my house.

            The N4 proved it would work for me and mine, wherever we traveled. The up front costs and ETFs were all recovered in 8 months. Now, I’m ahead every month. And, I can buy any unlocked phone I want. And, if I see some prepaid deal, I can jump on it. Google Voice number will follow me forever (I hope).

        Lol

        Camera is sub-par….

    I don’t think I could justify price vs specs.

  • jlsushman

    But why?

  • Adrynalyne

    Bevy of users with broken camera hinges in 3…2…1…

      “tested to last through 100,000 rotations.”

      That’s over 27 rotations a day for 10 years, they should be ok.

        Famous last words.

        • jr Fortenberry

          (azturbomini here) What up man? Been awhile!

          • Adrynalyne

            Hey! Hows it goin?

            Just drowning in code.

            You?

          • jr Fortenberry

            Same old stuff here. Jumped from Verizon to T-Mobile about a month ago. Sporting a G2 for the moment. Hope all is well with the family.

          • Adrynalyne

            Trying to get off Verizon myself. It doesn’t help when the wife makes you buy her a new car.

            Where are you hanging out these days?

          • jr Fortenberry

            If you mean forums I’m in xda daily but I pretty much read and keep to myself. Lol Still in N Phoenix living life.

          • Adrynalyne

            Still in Tucson. Wouldn’t mind moving to Colorado though.

          • jr Fortenberry

            Funny you mention Colorado as my son was just stationed at Ft. Carson (Army) just outside of Colorado Springs a month ago. He will spend the next 3 years there. Actually 2.3 years in Colorado and a 9 month deployment to Afghanistan sometime between Jan-March. The great thing is Colorado is part of my sales territory so I will get to visit him more often.

          • Adrynalyne

            Awesome. I have some family down there too. Trying to use it as an excuse (well that and the tech jobs).

    For that price, it needs an S800 processor…

    Also, the phone is damn huge.

  • brkshr

    I’ll wait for a smaller device. This thing is huge.

  • IDLE0095

    I have ordered 125 of them already for my store. I already got paid but customer for over half of what I ordered.

  • Jonathan Bunch

    499 would be a better price point for those specs and launch date

    • Hezakia Mcmurphy

      Agreed.
