After first being announced earlier this year with the landmark CyanogenMod partnership, Chinese manufacturer Oppo has officially confirmed plans to offer its flagship N1 to US customers for $599 unlocked. As previously reported, the N1 features the following specifications:
- 5.9 inch 1080p HD display
- 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
- 13MP Rotating 6-element camera
- WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS
- 3,610 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 via Color ROM or choice of CyanogenMod after purchase
One of the other key features of the N1 mentioned in the specifications harks back to the middle part of the 2000?s with a 13 megapixel camera that is mounted on a 206° swiveling assembly on the top of the device while also including the main speaker and the front facing camera assembly. The phone will be sold via online third-party dealers as well as Amazon.
The US release of the N1 will also mark Oppo’s official entry into the US market after years of focusing on mainland China and Southeast Asia, where it has experienced success as a smartphone manufacturer. While its previous phone lines were also available to purchase through Amazon and other third-party sites that specialized in selling Chinese phones over the years, this will be the first Oppo device specifically targeted towards the US and other Western countries.
