    I’m starting to get excited about the N1. Unlike many here, I am not opposed to the 5.9″ screen. I just hope Oppo can button down the software, so that it launches with a more stable ROM than that of the Find 5.

      If the bezels are as narrow as they are on the render, I don’t think the size is going to bother me much either

      For that size you’ve got the zopo zp990…for 299$

      And for that price the best buy is:

      NEXUS 5!!!

    Pricing may be high.. lets see what innovations oppo is having.
    I may wait for find 7.
    I think I should get a MX2 or MI2S now..

    • September 13, 2013

      If it came with the external lens at this price then it would be a bargain!

        I agree,with the N-lens included the price fair.

        • September 13, 2013

          If included by default. Ext card is a must if 16 gb model is thr. A snap will cost more than 5 mb

    If it $ 650 in China, what will be the price for us international buyers? May be $ 800? Who will buy with this price a Chinese phone?

      Oppo is actually on the way to become an international phone company.
      They are much better at providing their phones for the international market as well.
      And $800 for this awesome phone, that’s nothing! iPhone5C is going to cost $650 in the USA, and that phone is just sh*t compared to this beauty 😉

      Their prices reflect internationally.If it’s $650 in China it’s the same on their international online store.

  4. September 13, 2013

    I can only assume they have lost their minds … at that price I suggest they take a very long, hard, look at the ASUS 7 inch tablet announcements, this week !!!!!

    OPPO will NOT BE IN BUSINESS in a year from now.

      they make more money than Xiaomi in profit.This is not a 7inch tablet that’s wifi onlyand has shoddy cameras,its a 6 inch phablet with narrow bezels, high end specs and awesome cameras.I’m more concerned with how it compares to note 2/3 and xperia z1

      While I hate the 6″ form factor I think it’s a fair price for the phone itself.

      Gee you talk some shit Millgate

  5. September 13, 2013

    AMAZON KINDLE! that’s all i have to say…

      Does a kindle make calls?

        September 13, 2013

        no idea… I just want a cheap SD800 and then ROOT it :D.

        I would actually really like to get my hands on a Xiaomi MI3, but it’s way too expensive for europeans 🙁 and the screen is on the small side…

        • Allanitomwesh
          September 13, 2013

          it is quite large at 9 inch and no rear camera so it is of different use.

  8. September 13, 2013

    They must have something big up their sleeve then if the pricing really is $650. This is gonna face them off head to head with the LG G2, which is $699 off contract at Best Buy.

    The camera features in this must be revolutionary for this to be more than a G2 look alike. This phone may make a big splash if it comes out and stomps the G2 into the ground, exited to see what happens.

    oppo is too overconfident! how bout $400 for the N1? i’ll buy 2! 🙂

    if xiaomi go international and they can maintain their friendly magical price, oppo will be a goner!

    • September 14, 2013

      I don’t think it’ll be easy for Xiaomi to maintain their pricing if and when they go international.

        Xiaomi now has all the power and they have many fans all the software support plus the new phone is the best at all except the camera I think is not that good like the new iphone.
        If they keep their price they will win for sure.

        I heard Xiaomi makes most of its money off selling downloads from their app store. When the phone leaves China the first thing they do is delete xiaomis app store off and put on google play.

        Supposedly they make almost nothing off the hardware. They are gonna have to figure something out if they wanna go worldwide.

    I hope they at least include MHL this time around if they’re going to charge so much.
