Oppo’s N1 Android smartphone goes on sale December 10 in US and Europe for $599/€449


Handset maker Oppo unveiled the N1 in September, a 5.9-inch Android smartphone with a full HD display and a 13-megapixel camera fitted to an adjustable hinge.

After going on sale in China last month, the smartphone will land in the US and Europe on December 10 — for $599 and €449 respectively, as announced in a Google+ update by Oppo and spotted first by Android Central.


Oppo claims that the N1 camera, constructed from 67 different components, is the first to feature a six-piece lens design in an Android smartphone. It remains to be seen when the phone will roll out to other international markets — but all eyes are probably on how well this Chinese company will be received in the US and Europe.
