Sweet Moses, these guys are worse than bloomin’ LG. Oppo teased the N1 mini earlier in the week, and – as promised – the not-so-mini smartphone was announced more formally yesterday.
But wait; the official Oppo N1 mini launch event is still a full 10 days away. What in the name of fug?
Ok, so June 10 is when we meet the Oppo N1 mini properly. What we have to chew on in the meantime is a half-complete spec sheet. Mmm, tasty.
For starters, the Oppo N1 mini has a 5in display, though the Chinese manufacturer doesn’t care to specify a resolution just yet. It’ll likely be 720p or 1080p.
Like the larger Oppo N1 before it, the Oppo N1 mini features a swivelling 13MP rear - and technically front - camera, so you’re ultimately getting the same quality for your “selfies” as you’re getting from your bog standard rear-facing pics.
Furthermore, borrowing Oppo’s Super Zoom Mode technology from the more recent Find 7, the Oppo N1 mini ups its camera claim to 24MP. Sort of.
The Oppo N1 mini’s processor is unspecified too, but front-runners are the MediaTek MT6592 and Exynos 5422 Octa system upon a chip.
The only other things confirmed for now are Android KitKat with a dash of Color OS, and compatibility with China Mobile’s TD-LTE.
Full story (sorry, guys) on June 10.
