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.
