Oppo announces N1 smartphone with swivelling camera, CyanogenMod
Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Oppo has launched its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294560==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/22/rear.mounted.buttons.possible.addition.to.chinese. smartphone/" rel='nofollow'>teased smartphone</a>, complete with unique camera module. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294561==http://en.oppo.com/products/n1/" rel='nofollow'>Oppo N1</a> allows its top-mounted 13-megapixel camera unit to rotate around 206 degrees, allowing the same camera to be used for front-facing, rear-facing and alternative angled photographs. <br />
<br />
Aside from being able to be rotated, the N1's camera includes Oppo's Pure Image system of hardware and software, combining six physical lenses, a 1/3.06 imaging module, and a wide f/2.0 aperture, as well as an updated image processing system, a light-diffusing LED flash, and support for long exposures of up to eight seconds. <br />
<br />
Sporting a 5.9-inch 1080p display, the N1 uses a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 running at 1.7GHz with an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and a choice of 16GB or 32GB of storage. On the back of the 3,610mAh battery is a rear touch panel, called O-Touch, which can interpret swipes and gestures to control the screen, while the O-Click keychain remote control can operate the camera or trigger an alarm on the phone from 50 meters away. <br />
<br />
While it will be shipping with Oppo's own take on Android, ColorOS, international versions of the device will be able to flash <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294562==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/25/steve.kondik.passes.comment.on.galaxy.s4.admonishe s.touchwiz/" rel='nofollow'>CyanogenMod</a> directly from stock recovery, with a limited CyanogenMod edition with it pre-installed also being touted for future release. This marks the first time that Cyanogen Inc. has worked with a device producer since its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294563==http://www.cyanogenmod.org/blog/a_new_chapter" rel='nofollow'>formation</a> earlier this month. <br />
<br />
Oppo plans to ship the N1 in early December for 3,498 CNY ($570). <br />
