How many of you do take advantage of your smartphone’s camera as the primary digital camera instead of using the DSLR or Micro Four Thirds shooter that you purchased a while back? I suppose important functions would still see you whip out that full sized camera, but most of the time, the smartphone’s camera has advanced to a point where it is capable of taking “good enough” photos for everyday use. Oppo intends to change the way we snap photos using our smartphones, with the launch of their latest flagship device, the Oppo N1.
The Oppo N1 holds the distinction of being the first smartphone from the spanking new N-Lens flagship series that will feature a rotating camera, now how about that? Not only that, there is also a rear touch panel that will work in tandem with the generous touchscreen display, where every single bit of the design has been thought up of in advance to deliver a totally new smartphone experience to the masses.
Arriving in only one color – white, the Oppo N1 will tip the scales at 213 grams with its body that measures 170.7mm x 82.6mm x 9mm, and it will run on Oppo’s special Color OS that is based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Underneath the hood you will also be able to find a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with an Adreno 320 GPU, sporting 2GB RAM alongside an internal memory capacity of either 16GB or 32GB, depending on your budget. Powering the Oppo N1 would be a rather beefy 3,610 mAh battery, which would come in handy throughout the whole day since it sports a 5.9″ Full HD IPS display at a whopping 377ppi pixel density.
Not only that, it has a 13-megapixel shooter with dual mode LED and f/2.0 aperture, which can rotate at a cool 206-degrees so that you can capture images from angles that you never imagined possible with a regular smartphone camera. Not only that, the camera will securely lock at any angle, and hopefully the mechanism will be able to stand the test of time! Pricing details for the Oppo N1 remain to be confirmed, but we do know that it is slated for a December release.
