The hotly anticipated Oppo N1 will be released in a matter of days. The high-powered handset comes not only with a very distinctive 13 MP swivel camera, meaning you can capture high-res photos and videos on the front and back, but also with the option to have Android replaced with CyanogenMod as the preinstalled operating system. The Oppo N1 will begin at $599 in the US and 449 Euro in European markets when it goes on sale on December 10th.

The N1 marks a first for the manufacturer as well as for CyanogenMod because the phone offers a choice between operating systems out of the box. While the CyanogenMod version is strictly limited, we expect them to sell relatively quickly. The Oppo N1 also features a rear trackpad that allows the user to scroll without using the touchscreen. Besides these innovative features, the N1 will boast a beastly 5.9-inch Full HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 running at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and will be available in either a 16 GB or 32 GB version.

Even if you're not quick enough to the CyanogenMod version, you'll be able to make the switch quickly and easily thanks to Oppo's software flexibility, something more and more smartphone users are wanting. It's a nifty looking device with solid specs and lots of innovative ideas on board ad it's bound to make a splash next week.

  • This could change the very design of future smart phones (unfortunately, if the patent isn't made available "to purchase the right to use"? It will be another patent court battle over a camera design)

  • Looks great! I like everything about it. Especially the option to replace android with cyanogenmod. And the camera, a very nice thing they did with it. Lovely phone. I'm already thinking about my next one, but I'll give myself another 6-10 months for that decision. And right now, Samsung is really low on my list.

    • The swivel camera is such an obvious idea I'm surprised it hasn't become standard ages ago. Why would you want TWO cameras, one of them crappy, when you can have just ONE good one! The swivel mechanism is a little clunky but I expect that can be improved upon in time. Definitely a device to keep an eye on.
