Ex-Apple CEO backed company launches OPPO N1 clone


The OPPO N1 design seems to have gotten so popular that it’s managed to leave even people of the stature of John Sculley smitten!

Sculley is known for one of his latest ventures, Obi Mobiles, besides being an ex-Apple CEO in the 90’s famous for ‘firing Steve Jobs’. His brainchild in Obi today announced the Obi Falcon S451, alongside a couple other phones, in India. While we have no exceptional interest in the other devices (they’re the usual 1GB/8GB, MT6582, 8MP/5MP sets…), the Falcon S451 does catch our attention… for being an OPPO N1/N1 mini impostor.

Specifications

  • 4.5-inch 960 x 540 pixels
  • 1.3GHz dual-core MT6572 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB on-board ROM
  • 8 mega-pixel swivel camera
  • 2200mAh battery
  • Android v4.2 Jelly Bean

If you’ve been following GizChina of late, you’d probably instantly relate to the top 10 rebranded phones list we published recently. Not surprisingly, a device with very much the specifications of the device we’re talking about here finds place in that list!

So, Obi have not only not had to design the phone, but they’re also not manufacturing it by outsourcing it to a third party.

Obi haven’t had a great start in India, and they hope to make it big in the Middle East. Take a look at the Obi website for more info.
