A couple days ago an image of the forthcoming Oppo N3 smartphone surfaced that showed a very unique design for the top edge of the device housing the camera and possibly some speakers. Today a new image has surfaced that shows a much more conservative design that is quite different when compared to the previously leaked image. This image shows the back of the device with the top edge taking a more traditional form for smartphones.
Oppo took to its Facebook page this morning to share an image with fans teasing the N3. The image suggests that the announcement will be made in Singapore in October. The folks at GSM Arena also received a possible image of the device showing off the unique design the N series is famous for (below). Just like the N1, the camera on the smartphone will rotate meaning those who into taking selfies will be able to use the full-quality rear shooter for that.
Aside from a teaser being posted yesterday, not much was known about Oppo’s N1 Mini aside from it being announced months ago. But apparently Oppo has made the handset available in Malaysia for a few days now. The product page for Oppo’s Malaysian site provides full details as to what the N1 Mini has to offer.
The Oppo N1 Mini was announced way back in May, but it has yet to be released. Consumers have been waiting around for months not only to get the device, but to here when they will be able to get the N1 Mini. A new teaser image (above) that was posted by the company’s Indian Facebook page could be an indication that Oppo will be making it available soon. The teaser claims that although the N1 Mini will be smaller in size, it still packs the same punch as a larger device. The caption attached to the image within the Facebook post says the device will have a “Revolutionary 24 Mega Pixels Ultra HD Camera.”

The Oppo Find 7a was up for pre-order a few weeks ago however the QHD variant of Find 7 is also now available for pre-order with a shipping date of “early July”.
Interested customers have the option to pre-order either the US version (enhanced TMO support) or the International version, however both the devices are priced at $599. The device is also available Astro Black or White color.
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.
True 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!
The FCC has inspected and approved a device going by the Oppo N5116, and judging from the released pictures and specs, it looks like it’s going to be a mini version of the Oppo N1. We knew this device was coming, but thanks to this filing we’re getting a much better look at how the device is going to look. The Mini keeps the design of its bigger brother and looks nearly identical, except for the slimmed down screen.
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…
