Oppo might not be a giant in the Android world, but they did make a fair amount of waves with its previous flagship, the Oppo Find 5. Hoping to take things to the next level, Oppo hasn’t been shy about teasing, leaking and advertising the heck out of the Oppo N1. Today the teasing ends, as the company has now officially taken the veil of its latest flagship!, the Oppo N1 puts a great deal of focus into its photo-taking capabilities, with the handset featuring a unique 13MP shooter with an aperture of f/2.0, 6-element lens, dual-LED and the ability to rotate 206 degrees. Thanks to its rotatable design, the back shooter can easily become the front camera as well.
I actually thought about the rotating camera thing (well it was shaped differently but it did the same thing). I was thinking that companies should do it because I’m tired of shitty front-facing camera… and then I discover the Oppo N1. For me the innovation of the camara is the best, they are pionners, i was thinking yesterday about the low performace of front cameras, now this is a good option. It’s also great looking phone and love the touch sensitive area on the back.

OPPO N1 is designed with a beautiful dual line philosophy. The entire device is wound by two finely cut chamfers. Visible from every angle, the dual chamfers run through the sides of the device’s pure and minimalist design. The subtle curves and contours lend to its sophisticated yet simple design.
World’s First Rotating Camera Smartphone
OPPO was the first in the world to release a 13-megapixel camera smartphone. With the N1, we are once again realizing new possibilities in smartphone photography. Introducing the world’s first smartphone with a rotating camera. The revolutionary rotating camera features a 206° rotation, and will securely lock at any angle. No matter what angle you choose, having just one amazing camera means that front facing shots are finally just as good as back facing shots.
Good photos are the result of excellent hardware and software working in harmony, which is why we created Pure Image. Applied to the photo at the time of capture, it helps you capture breathtaking and vividly realistic images.
O-Touch is an entirely new way of using your smartphone. A 12 cm2 rear touch panel makes one handed use for the large OPPO N1 screen comfortable and easy. With O-Touch you can scroll, tap, or snap photos – all without your fingers blocking the display.
O-Click lets you remotely operate the N1 camera even when you’re away from the device. Simply position the N1 and step back to include everything you want to capture. If you misplace your device, find it by setting off an alarm on the phone. O-Click fits on your keychain and supports a range of up to 50 meters, staying connected to your OPPO N1 via Bluetooth (BLE).
The full metal aluminum alloy frame is produced over a 20-day period. During this time it undergoes a 14 step polishing process involving more than a dozen suppliers. Strengthening the core of the phone, the frame adds an air of toughness, firmness and style to the OPPO N1. The phone body is made with a smooth, delicate material for a ceramic-like elegance, designed to keep your device free of fingerprints and eternally soft to the touch.
