oppo n1 mini r3 announcement

Oppo has confirmed two new devices today, one of which was the N1 Mini that we’d previously heard about. The specs are pretty much in line with what we anticipated, including a quad-core Snapdragon CPU and a 5-inch, 720p display. It still has the same 13 megapixel camera on a swivel that the bigger N1 had, too. The Mini will be about 63 grams thinner than the bigger N1, and you’ll be able to pick it up in white as well as blue and yellow. » Read the rest

Oppo officially announces N1 Mini

oppo-n1-mini-2True to its word, Oppo has finally officially announced the N1 Mini. The N1 Mini, not surprisingly, borrows its design from its larger cousin. However, unlike the N1 with a 6-inch screen, this one is packing a much more reasonable 5-inch screen. On top of a smaller screen, the device is lighter, has LTE, and runs Color OS 1.4. It will have the same camera as the N1 with that being the 13MP Sony 6 lens camera with a f/2.0 aperture and 1/3.2″ sensor size. The camera will also have the same rotary set up allowing you to take your selfies in all their 13MP glory.

As far as the innards are concerned, Oppo is keeping a lid on that for now. The company has set a release date for Wednesday, June 11 — in some areas — with an announcement event being held the day before. So if you’re waiting for the “mini” device from Oppo, you’re less than two weeks away from seeing it. As soon as we get a hold of some specs we’ll let you know. Stay tuned!

Oppo is certainly more of an “underground” OEM when it comes to the major brands like Samsung, LG, Apple, Motorola, HTC, etc., but that doesn’t mean the company can’t roll with the big boys.

Last September, Oppo unveiled the N1, a device that was both beautiful, inside and out. The specs were top-notch, and the phone featured a 13MP camera that can be rotated 206 degrees — a truly revolutionary design. However, the device’s time has come and gone, as Oppo has moved on with another flagship, the Find 7 — another stunning device.

But the company isn’t going to forget about the N1 just yet. The N1 Mini, a little brother to the company’s September flagship, is coming soon, and we now have some specs to share…

When Peter Lau left Oppo last year to start the new company OnePlus, there were a number of questions about the ownership of the new OnePlus. Lau has denied multiple times that OnePlus was owned by Oppo, and when asked why the OnePlus One looked so similar to the Oppo Find 7, he said that it was “perhaps because our aesthetics standard trends are similar”.

Today a document was leaked from the Shenzhen Municipal Market Supervisory Authority (SIPO) showing that OnePlus has one institutional stockholder, and that stockholder is Oppo.

Oppo smart lens

Sony created a one-of-a-kind device with their QX10 and QX100. The attachable camera lenses could be stuck on a smartphone to offer picture quality better than what a built-in smartphone camera could offer. The devices were cool, but they obviously haven’t caught on to the mainstream just yet. However, that’s not going to stop Oppo from jumping head first into that market to give Sony a bit of competition. » Read the rest
