A few weeks preceding the launch of Oppo's swivel-camera based flagship phablet, rumors had broken out that the Chinese phone maker had bagged a deal with the developers of CyanogenMod, who would develop a custom ROM for the 6-inch class camera phone. As it turns out, that rumor is true. It's not a report or leaked info that we're dealing with, but an actual press release detailing the Oppo N1 CyanogenMod edition, to be the first of its kind.
This limited edition handset will begin shipping internationally in December, keeping the price tag at the same level as the regular Oppo N1.
Special OPPO N1 With CyanogenMod Available in December
OPPO will be selling a limited edition of their latest flagship device, the OPPO N1, which will ship with CyanogenMod. This special edition of the OPPO N1 will come running CyanogenMod out of the box, which has been customized to support all the unique features of the OPPO N1, and include extra CyanogenMod accessories.
OPPO N1 CyanogenMod Edition
OPPO recently unveiled the OPPO N1, an innovative device outfitted with a large 5.9" HD screen, rotating camera and a rear touch panel. To perfect the OPPO N1 further, OPPO partnered with CyanogenMod, the world's most popular aftermarket Android operating system, to give users a choice in the software they run on their OPPO N1. A limited supply of OPPO N1 devices will ship running CyanogenMod.
The limited OPPO N1 CyanogenMod edition also comes with extras like CyanogenMod stickers, unique CyanogenMod packaging, and a specially designed case for the N1 featuring CyanogenMod and OPPO mascots, Cid and Ollie.
Non-limited international OPPO N1 devices ship with OPPO's ColorOS system, and will support the installation of CyanogenMod directly from the OPPO N1 stock recovery without the user needing to root and install a custom recovery. In addition, it will come pre-loaded with CyanogenMod making it easy to flash CyanogenMod directly without downloading or transferring any files.
OPPO's partnership with CyanogenMod marks the creation of the world's first CyanogenMod hardware product. It is also the first time CyanogenMod has made software customizations for a smartphone manufacturer. The CyanogenMod team has tailored their software to specifically support all of the unique features of the OPPO N1 including the O-Touch back touch panel, O-Click Bluetooth remote control, the revolutionary rotating camera, and also unique features from ColorOS such as double tap to wake and screen-off gestures.
The limited edition OPPO N1 with CyanogenMod will ship internationally in December at the same price as regular OPPO N1 devices.
