First Google-certified CyanogenMod phone, the Oppo N1, on sale 12/24 [VIDEO]



News of the Oppo N1 shipping with CyanogenMod pre-installed dropped in September, with the involved parties revealing last month that the device would launch in December. As the end of the month draws near, the partners have cut it close with the announcement that the limited edition version of the N1 will go on sale December 24th.

While this means you likely won’t be able to grab one in time for a late Christmas present, the world’s first phone to ship with CyanogenMod out of the box and Google CTS certification will soon be in the hands of Android enthusiasts with a liking for CM’s take on the mobile platform. In the US, the Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod will be available through Amazon and Oppo’s web store. An exact pricing has not been announced.

The Oppo N1 features a 5.9-inch 1080p display, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, and 2GB of RAM along with a 13MP (rotating) camera. The special edition CyanogenMod version will ship with a themed case and other extras.

  1. Can’t wait till I get this phone, even if it’s not in the CM box. Glad to finally see Oppo getting more and more recognition. But I bet people will still hate and try to put them down because it’s a “Chinese” company that they haven’t heard about.. To me that make makes it better because they’re a smaller company making major moves. After owning the Oppo Find 5, I’m a huge fan of Oppo.

    1. Lalo,
      I don’t think its the Chinese question, I think its lack of certain things people want, 800 snapdragon cpu, lte and a few others. Not a fan of the swivel camera, but admitted it could be a “me” thing. I want to see what comes next from Oppo.

  2. Too bad im on a CDMA carrier.

    1. CDMA carriers suck.

  3. S600? when the move is to go 64bit or at least an S800. Hope they appropriately offset that with the cost of the phone. But I hope it is successful because we need more players in the game with a enhanced stock UI experience on a solid and unique phone. Plus I am a fan of Oppo.

  4. I considered waiting on this device but chose the G2 instead. Primarily for the chip set. They get outdated FAST so having the newest means the device lasts longer.

    1. Plus the fact that the G2 has LTE, which should be a deal breaker on buying any new phone!

      1. Maybe in the USA, but not in most of the world.

        1. Not really, LTE is in Europe, many parts of Asia and Australia. Nice phone, not anti-Oppo but if I’m gong to drop $600 plus, it has to have LTE. Now I may think different when the Find 7 (or whatever they decide to call it) and rumors it will support LTE.

          1. Lalo is right, I’m in the UK and I have to say, 4G is the biggest let down we’ve had, it’s really not that much faster than 3G, it’s much more expensive, the vast majority couldn’t care about 4G

    2. I agree. Everyone’s going to be screaming for the Snapdragon 805 in February/March.

      In a bit skeptical how that flip camera is going to play out. I see this as becoming a serious week spot.

      1. Reviewers have actually said the phone is built very well and the swivel camera is very sturdy and durable feeling.

  5. No word on price?

  6. while the SN600 may turn down some heads..please keep in mind two things:

    1) CM is a light OS..it is super close to stock Android and should run pretty good even with multiple apps running.

    2)With the 5.9 inch Full HD screen, they probably needed to chose this chip set for attractive pricing ( I know pricing has not been announced..but I am guessing $550 USD)

    1. You mean Oppo needed to do that? No they didn’t the official pricing of the phone itself is $599 but thats the non CM edition I expect it to be the same price wise.

  7. Makes the wait for the Oppo Find 7 just a bit harder. (but just a wee bit)

  8. Still no LTE, don’t want it, will wait for the Find 7.

    1. Hear that. Find 7 is gonna be wayyyyy better anyway!!

  9. Anyone else find that woman in the video not very attractive?

    Ha….Who am I kidding…..She’s only 110% luscious!

    1. I was thinkin’ she’s Lexa Doig’s 7.5/10 sister

  10. Still <3 CM, but that phone's just a tad too bricky for me (even compared to my Note3). Will wait to see what's next.

  11. I’ll pass…
