Oppo N1 is a photography-centric phone with cutting edge optics. It has 13 Megapixel camera with CMOS sensor and f/2.0 aperture which enhances low light performance. N1 is first Android phone to use six physical lenses and specially designed IPS imaging chip in partnership with Fujitsu which is recognized as leading Optics Company. And you will be surprised to see that whole camera unit can rotate through 206 degrees so it can also be used as front camera.
And there should not be any doubt in your mind about this swivel mechanism of N1’s camera as it has passed a 100,000 time rotation test. Which means that it should work fine for 7 years even if you rotate it 40 times a day. It is quite reassuring, given that you can fire the camera and take a picture just within 0.6 seconds with a rotation of over 120 degrees. Oppo also boasted that its camera’s been tested in over 100 scenarios, which is apparently the highest in the industry.
Moreover N1 consists of a unique feature called O-Touch Panel. It is an entirely new way of using your smartphone. A 12cm2 area below the camera is touch sensitive which makes it easy to use this 5.9 inch device with one hand. With various gestures on this touch panel you can scroll, play next song, browse the web etc. Also when you long touch the back touch panel within camera app, it takes picture with front facing camera.
Oppo has presented a special Bluetooth accessory called as O-Click. It lets you operate the N1 camera even when you are away from the device. O-Click is just like a remote which stays connected to your Oppo N1 via Bluetooth and supports operating range of 50 meters.
There is a dual LED flash which sits there along with camera. And the flash works differently for front facing and back facing shots. And below the back cover a 3610 mAh battery powers the phone which is pretty good for a phone of this size. Oppo N1 also features dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
