Oppo N1 – World’s First Rotating Camera Smartphone [VIDEO]

5.9-inch Oppo N1 has swivel camera, rear touch sensor. Oppo’s latest smartphone brings hardware innovations to a new Android 4.2 phablet.

Chinese hardware maker Oppo on Monday introduced the Oppo N1, a new Android 4.2 phablet with notable innovations.

The N1 features a 5.9-inch 1080p HD display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, and a 13-megapixel camera. The phone, which comes in 16GB or 32GB storage capacities, also has a 3610 mAh battery, and support for quad-band GSM and pentaband HSPA+ support.

Oppo’s also bringing CyanogenMod on board, making the N1 the first collaboration product since the formation of Cyanogen Inc. (its founder and CTO Steve Kondik was at the event). This ROM will be available later for the N1, but there’ll also be a limited edition of the device that will come with CyanogenMod pre-installed — the first such product in the world.

Cool Features :

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).

Rotatable Camera: 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.

Pricing and exact market availability are not yet clear, but Oppo has circled “early December” on the calendar for the flagship device.
