Oppo N1 price cut on Oppo Style


The Oppo N1 has had it’s price slashed by as much as $100 USD on the Oppo Style website.

With the Oppo Find 7a in the picture and acting as interim flagship until the Find 7 arrives, Oppo Style have slashed the price of new Oppo N1 phones in their store. Originally the 16GB Oppo N1 cost $599 while the 32GB model $549, now the prices are $499 and $549.

Price cuts on a phone the age of the Oppo N1 are common, Meizu, Xiaomi and others often reduce pricing 5-6 months after a product launch. This does bring another thought to mind, with the Oppo N1 being such a niche device has it been popular enough for Oppo to create a successor with similar rotating camera features?

Thanks to Peter for the tip.

    It was a good phone..but at least in Indian market it was’nt selling like hot cakes..too odd and big perhaps. A price point of ₹ 7000 less might bring some action to its Sales chart in India atleast.

      Those two are too different to be compared. One’s a huge phablet with a plethora of unique and innovative features while the other is a normal smartphone for the masses. The Xperia Z1is more comparable to the Find 7A imo.

        “plethora of unique and innovative features”
        Like the swiveling camera and back touch (on a 6″ phone)?

          Yes, like the swiveling camera and O-touch panel. And the gestures. And the official CM support. And the design. And the constant updates.

          You see, Sony won’t change their formula because they follow a “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” philosophy that’s worked really well for Samsung. It may be good, but there’s no true innovation. The N1 is unique in that it’s not just a normal phone, it’s a phone that’s trying to be innovative and on most fronts it works. It’s special, which is why you can’t compare if to many phones on the market.

            Good for you, seems like you’re in minority though.

            6″ with no SD card? L O L

              No, you’re in the minority at the moment. You just don’t understand what I’m trying to say here. For starters, a phablet is supposed to be big.

              People like you dislike the N1 BECAUSE it’s innovative. You just dislike stuff because it’s weird to you. For me, I value innovation. You just want a fast and small phone. I can’t expect you to understand, you’re naturally narrow minded.

              That’s why it sold gangbuster and discounted everywhere here right?

              LOL

              And again “innovative” phone with no SD card? L.O.L

              One again, you’re mixing innovative with your wants. You don’t know how many units of the N1 Oppo sold since Oppo hasn’t exactly disclosed that. And it’s being discounted because the Find 7 is coming soon. Is that hard to grasp?

              Things like microSD card slots or large batteries are not innovation. Innovation in smartphones is, in simple terms, when a brand makes something new or unique and it works. If it doesn’t work, then it’s a gimmick.

              All you want is an SD card slot. And a small display. A Galaxy S3 would be more than enough for you. There’s nothing wrong with not looking something, but claiming nobody should like it is NOT right.

    I think it would be better served with a processor update and a memory bump rather than a price reduction.
