Oppo promised the N1 would be available for purchase unlocked in the US today, and that promise was fulfilled. The Oppo N1 is now available for sale for $599. You can get the device in white in the 16GB configuration for that price, or opt for the 32GB model for $50 more.
The N1 is a rather interesting phone, with the Chinese OEM electing to go with one 13 megapixel camera that can be rotated 206 degrees. This gives you a great camera both for front and rear shots, and any other angle you might need (get your mind out of the gutter, folks).
Of course, the camera is only one part of this story. Here’s how the rest of the device reads on paper:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core 1.7GHz
- 2GB of RAM
- 5.9-inch 1080p HD display
- 16GB / 32GB of internal storage
- WiFi N
- 3610 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
This thing doesn’t have LTE radios, but you can use it with various HSPA+ radios available from the likes of T-Mobile and AT&T. Here’s the full list of supported radios:
UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+/HSPA+42 (WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz
Not lost on us is the fact that Oppo will officially support the ability to flash CyanogenMod, which makes this one very interesting phone for those who like to tinker.
