Oppo's N1 smartphone with CyanogenMod to launch next month Chinese OEM Oppo has announced that their N1 smartphone, running CyanogenMod as its operating system, will see a global launch next month.
Oppo is known for its quality receivers and Blu-ray/DVD players, but more recently they have introduced cheap yet powerful Android devices.

Cyanogen, which recently became it a real company and raised money as it tries to take on Android, Windows Phone and iOS, announced Oppo as its first partner back in September.

The device has a 6-inch 1080 display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600, 2GB RAM and a very intriguing rotating camera that allows you to use the better rear camera for video chat and portrait shots, as well. A limited quantity will be built with CyanogenMod already pre-installed, while the rest of the production will start with Android but have the application and instructions ready for Cyanogen.

I was never really a user of CM but they are doing well for themselves so can't fault it.

Rotatable camera will probably break easily/become annoying.

If it's sturdy though, it'll be awesome.
