Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod Arriving December 24

By - Source: Oppo (Twitter) | B 12 comments

Are you ready for CyanogenMod out of the box?

The Oppo N1 was officially launched 10 days ago, on December 10, 2013. However, that version of the phone was running Android 4.2 with Oppo's own ColorOS on top. A couple of months back, we were promised an Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod. What gives? Well, according to the official Oppo Twitter, the Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod will ship out before Santa does.

 

"The OPPON1 is the world's first Google CTS-Certified CyanogenMod phone!," the company tweeted today, adding that the device would be available for purchase on December 24. Those who wish to buy themselves an Oppo N1 can pick one up on Amazon.com or through Oppo's OppoStyle store. 

The phone features a 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display with a swiveling 13-megapixel camera up and is powered by a Snapdragon 600 clocked at 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The device is the first phone to ship with official CyanogenMod support. Aside from support for CM, the Oppo N1's other unique feature is a touch-sensitive panel on the back called the O-Touch. This feature is for scrolling and tapping your way through articles and websites. There's also a Bluetooth remote for taking photos, sounding a distress alarm (for when your phone is lost), and other basic functions.

    The international OPPO Find 5 supports 3G cellular frequencies 850, 1700, 1900 and 2100MHz, as well as GSM/EDGE frequencies 850, 900, 1800 and 1900MHz. Find 5 does not currently support CDMA networks or 4G/LTE. We recommend that you contact your carrier, and confirm with them that the Find 5 will be compatible with their service.

    "O-Touch" haha reminds me of the movie Office... "If things go well I might be showing her my O-face. Oh... Oh... Oh! You know what I'm talkin' about."
