Oppo N1 mini smartphone breaks cover with a 13-megapixel swiveling camera

Following its rather monstrous N1 smartphone, Oppo is readying a smaller version called the N1 mini. The petite handset has broken cover on the Chinese manufacturer’s website, revealing its design and a few tantalising details about the hardware.

As with the N1 (our review), the N1 mini is a predominantly white, plastic handset with a silver trim running around its edges. As PhoneArena reports, the smaller version also sports the same 13-megapixel camera as its goliath predecessor, which can be repositioned for both front and rear-facing shots.

Otherwise, most of the N1 mini specs remain a mystery. The webpage confirms it’ll support 4G networks and weighs in at around 150 grams; Oppo will also be shipping the device with Color OS, its exclusive take on Android.

There could be some other tidbits on the site, but my Chinese translation skills are rather lacking. The top of the page is emblazoned with the date 6/11, which could point to its general release – other publications have suggested an Oppo launch event on June 10, which would align rather nicely.
