Oppo today announced that it will offer its N1 Android-based smartphone to U.S. consumers beginning December 10. Oppo, which is a Chinese hardware maker, is selling the N1 with a choice of operating systems. Consumers can pick Oppo's ColorOS Android skin, CyanogenMod, or both. The phone will allow users to switch from ColorOS to CyanogenMod if they wish with no hacking required. The other stand-out feature of the N1 is a swiveling 13-megapixel camera that can be aimed either at the user or away from the user. Other features include a 5.9-inch 1080p HD display, a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM, and either 16GB or 32GB of storage. The N1 also includes a touch panel on the back for one-handed use. The phone will cost $599, and will be sold unlocked and without a contract.

What an innovative phone

I just looked through the company's website, and I'm impressed. They really put a lot of thought into this device, especially with the touch panel on the back. My only concerns would be that this is from an unknown Chinese manufacturer and the slower processor. I really wish a more established vendor would make a deice like this. It looks amazing.
Oppo has been making some of the best Blu-ray players for some time. They are not unknown.
1700Mhz x 4 Cores isn't enough for you, eh?
Seems like the same / similar processor to the HTC One, which is a blazing fast smartphone. Blazing. You must be running some high polygon count apps on your phone for calling a 1.7Ghz Quad-Core processor "...

What an innovative camera design

I would've never thought to do it like that. More moving parts mean more things to go wrong, though!
bummer. 🤨

It's an innovating idea.
First give 'em the chance, then judge.
