OPPO N1 Redefines Smartphone Photography with 5.9” Screen, Rotating Camera, and Rear Touch Panel

Gizchina News of the week

BEIJING – September 23, 2013 – OPPO today announced the launch of the OPPO N1, the first smartphone from their new N-Lens flagship series. The OPPO N1 was revealed to a crowd of over 600 international press, fans and developers in a stunning visual presentation at the AOYA Exhibition Center in Beijing. With the groundbreaking OPPO N1, the large screen, rotating camera, rear touch panel, and incredible design come together to create a whole new smartphone experience.

World’s First Rotating Smartphone Camera

The OPPO N1 realizes new possibilities in smartphone photography as the world’s first smartphone with a rotating camera. Its revolutionary camera rotates 206-degrees, and will securely lock at any angle.

To help you capture breathtaking and vividly realistic images, OPPO N1 comes with Pure Image, a hardware and software photography solution. Pure Image on OPPO N1 features six physical lenses, an upgraded type 1/3.06 imaging module and f/2.0 wide aperture. Furthermore, OPPO partnered with leading optics companies to tailor make an image-processing solution for improved white balance, exposure and focus.

OPPO N1 has a special light-diffusing LED flash design consisting of a normal flash for back facing shots, and a softer, diffused light for front facing shots, with brightness tunable from the OPPO N1 camera software. Your front facing shots will not only be just as good as back facing shots, they will also be perfectly lit. Easily accessible, the OPPO N1 camera will boot from a sleeping screen in just 0.6 seconds via a simple 120° rotation. The OPPO N1 camera also supports long exposure photography of up to 8 seconds.

Beautiful Technology

The OPPO N1 is wound by two finely cut chamfers running along the sides of the device which guard the immersive 5.9-inch display. More than a year of work and over 20 different designs ultimately led to the simple brilliance of the OPPO N1 and the small but intricate camera, tested to last through 100,000 rotations. Its full metal aluminum alloy frame is produced over a 20-day period, during which it undergoes a 14 step polishing process involving more than a dozen suppliers. Strengthening the core of the phone, the frame adds an air of solidity and style to the OPPO N1. The OPPO N1 phone body is made with a smooth, ceramic-like material designed to keep your device free of fingerprints and smooth to the touch.

O-Touch Panel

O-Touch is an entirely new way of using your smartphone. A 12 cm2 rear touch panel makes one handed use for the large N1 screen comfortable and easy. With O-Touch you can scroll, tap, or snap photos – all without your fingers blocking the display.

O-Click Control

O-Click lets you remotely operate the N1 camera even when you’re away from the device. Simply position the N1 and step back. If you misplace your device, find it by setting off an alarm on the phone. O-Click fits on your keychain and supports a range of up to 50 meters, staying connected to your OPPO N1 via Bluetooth (BLE).

Innovation in Choice

OPPO is committed to serve the smartphone market with an open attitude. OPPO N1 ships with Color (based on Android 4.2), a unique Android operating system with over 400 unique features and improvements over stock Android. CyanogenMod is the world’s most popular aftermarket Android operating system. International versions of the N1 come with Color, and also the ability to flash CyanogenMod directly from stock recovery. A limited OPPO N1 CyanogenMod Edition will ship with CyanogenMod preinstalled, the first CyanogenMod hardware product in the world.

Available in 16GB or 32GB internal storage, the OPPO N1 is set to launch in early December.

    Got Dirac HD like the Find 5?
    SD expansion?
    Otherwise it looks nice.

      No SD Card, however it does support OTG. Not the same but it helps for a bit of added storage when needed. I would also assume that it has Dirac like the Find 5.

        Oh wow I just LOVE dangling usb drive around with my phone for a bit of extra storage.

        What’s the point of a super phone if you can’t put or do anything worth shit in it because of storage limitation?

    I thought it was gonna come with an attachable lens or something. Good design but too expensive for the specs.

    I was hoping for a better processor and 4G/LTE. Any word on SD-card expansion and is it a fixed battery?

    September 23, 2013

    I’m comparing this phone to the leaks and they dont quite mach up. The positioning of the lense attachement in the official oppo leaks doesn’t match where the lense is on this.Are they gonna release another phone? find 7?
    The large green 7 in the image in the “Exclusive: This is the first real photo of the Oppo N1!” would suggest so

    No SD slot? So it looks like it’s their policy

    Way to go Oppo, it’s getting easier to cross out manufacturer from your buy list nowadays.

      September 23, 2013

      I agree with that. I’d like to buy xiaomi mi devices, nexus and even more oppo since their dev support. But no microsd support is a no go. Because the extra price for just 16gb more is ridiculous.
      xiaomi red rice is a exception, it’s like every other mt6589t phone but with 720p display and weak camera.

  10. alex
    September 23, 2013

    is really nice, with great features but, at this price i buy a new Galaxy S4…

  11. September 23, 2013

    I woulda gave up the rotating camera to have the bottom and top balanced or at least a little more even on top and bottom.. It looks like the phone is upside down.

    • September 24, 2013

      EXACTLY what I feel too.

  12. julien
    September 23, 2013

    I was wainting for this… and a bit disapointed by the design and the spec. Will go for the note 3 with sd card slot and removable battery.

  13. September 23, 2013

    Different from the leaks.
    Those leaks could be the Find7.

  14. September 23, 2013

    The price for the 32gb version will be $620 plus. In the American market, this is only 30 bucks less than an unlocked G2.
    Looks like a good deal tho if you are pretty much anywere but the US. Here in the states, $300-400 is where the Chinese phones really make sense and are a good value. There is lots of flagship competition, but low end and mid range is wide open.

    • September 23, 2013

      You’re gonna have a hard time in the US getting ppl to fork out $650 cash in hand for a phone. All the post paid carriers have subsidies or payment plans where you pay off the phone in 2 years.

      If youre on a prepaid plan, most likely you are the least likely to have a 600+ phone budget. Even $499 is doable, but $600+ feels like a lot for a Chinese phone.

    “O-Touch Panel

    One hand operation is risky enough with big phone like this and now they expect you to sacrifice your grip. Good idea, what could possibly be wrong?

  16. September 23, 2013

    A bit hidden in the specs, NFC.

  17. September 23, 2013

    Did they put that nano waterproof material on the N1? Is that what the drops of water in that photo are indicating? I know a few Chinese companies are picking up on that tech. Its only a few bucks per phone to fog coat the internals and make it 100% waterproof.

    • September 24, 2013

      Don’t know if that features on the N1, but yeah companies like Wickedleak (India) are offering devices with the waterproof coating for a very reasonable amount. Wickedleak are about to come up with their ‘Passion Z’ which essentially is a rebranded iOcean X7 but with the waterproof coating.

    September 23, 2013

    If I were to sum up my my views on this phone in a word it would be “disappointing”. After their last Find 5 which was such a gem of a phone, I expected better of Oppo instead we got a phone with a swivel camera as its only differentiating feature, sure 6 element lens with max aperture of F2.0 sounds good but the sample pics on the other post looked crap to me. Exposure was way off and also the white balance. I hope I am proved wrong when the phone goes out for reviews but I cant help but feel let down by the price as well.

  19. njren

    Take a piece of paper, cut it to the dimensions, and marvel at the sheer majesty of this device. Then figure out how your going to hold it, bearing in mind it’s 70 grams heavier than the Meizu MX3 and Xiaomi Mi3. Or 45 grams heavier than the Note 3, if you like.

  20. Dacs47
    September 23, 2013

    At that price will be a failure.
    NO microSD card – again. Why the hell not ? !!!

    • September 23, 2013

      I don’t get that. Even if the battery is sealed, then how do you get the sim card in? Why is it so hard to put a little micro sd tray on the phone?

      Or if they don’t wanna do that, then they can just charge a fair price for the additional memory. I guess they figure they’re giving you a bargain because they’re only charging $50 for an extra 16gb instead of $100 like Apple does. At least Apple offers a 64gb version and they only charge $100 for that jump from 32gb to 64gb.

    Absolute brillence … one fine day.. oppo bacame the finest than considered best Apple. Simply they became THE OPPO.
    Andi, any news of price down to A beauriful mind, the find 5.

    • September 23, 2013

      Nothing as of yet, but Oppo will let us know 🙂

  22. September 23, 2013

    This is the 2nd rotating camera in the phone. The first was the Samsung SGH-V200. OK, it’s not a smart phone… 🙂 I owned one 8-9 yrs ago.

    • September 23, 2013

      I’m hoping this swivel is electrically controlled, not just moved with your finger. Otherwise, it seems like its gonna get floppy over time and accidentally moved. If that’s the case, seems like it would be really annoying digging into your skull when you’re on phone calls.

      • anony
        September 23, 2013

        Worst is it can and will break, most probably faster than anything else on the phone.

      • September 23, 2013

        Apparently it is fine for over 100,000 full rotations. Only time will tell if this is true or not though.

      • September 24, 2013

        They say that it locks at any angle, so I would like to believe it is electronically controlled?

    • September 23, 2013

      I think it is much further down the line, NEC also had a range of swivel camera phones.

  23. September 23, 2013

    I wonder why they didn’t go with the S800 chip? It couldn’t have been more than $10-15 more on the hardware cost could it?

    Either you’re a flagship, or you’re not. And if you’re not a flagship, you shouldn’t charge flagship price for it. This is dangerously bordering on a mid grade phone, but you would never know by the price.

    • September 23, 2013

      I agree its overpriced. Had it been 2499 Yuan for the 16 gb edition it would be a real good proposition.. For 3499 it had to use the 800 series or T4 else its looks overpriced especially its lack for LTE support in the more mature 4G markets. And if it is 3499 in China it will be at least 3999 for anyone outside and thats a joke.

      The rotating lense is a good idea and the Cyanogen Mod partnership is a great move but the price is just un-competitive except may be just for consumers in China who won’t pay the extra 1500 yuan? for the G2 or Sony Z1

  24. September 23, 2013

    I’m starting to see the value in the swivel camera idea tho. This is similar to an idea I had a while back for a new iphone feature.

    The big plus to this is that it eliminates the need for a tripod. It wont make a huge difference for ppl making youtube videos at a fixed location, because you can just have a tripod there. But when you’re out and about, and don’t have a tripod on you, that’s when this shines.

    It’s the perfect phone for girls to take photos for their facebook when they are out at bars/clubs. You can tell by the size and features who they are targeting with this, its more purse friendly than pocket.

    • September 23, 2013

      It’s hardly a new idea though is it! there are hundred of phones that have had this feature and all from about a decade ago

      • September 24, 2013

        Yeah, I used to own a swivel camera JXD ‘MP5’ player about 5-6 years back…

          Well it’s probably the combination of :
          – Price
          – Size (looking at the poll back then)
          – and multiple N1 article that could be combined

    Hi Andy do you have info on what. Protection the n1has I/e gorilla glass thinking of buying one but with a screen as big as this one and price should have good protection.

  35. December 19, 2013

    My biggest question on the N1 is the video orientation. If I have this phone sitting on a table with the camera facing me, will the videos come out with the two black blocks on the side of it like when you hold a phone vertically and take a video? If that’s the case, this whole rotating camera feature is a total useless gimmick.
