Looks like China's Oppo will follow the current trend by unveiling a "mini" version of its popular smartphone, the N1.
Oppo, known for making some of the most stylish handsets, could be planning to reveal the N1 Mini in May or June, according to sources close to Hardware Zone.
Unlike the original Oppo N1, which sports a huge 5.9-inch Full HD display, the mini version is said to feature a 5-inch display. And while there's no update on the screen resolution, but chances are high that the device will offer 720p HD support.
Moreover, the N1 Mini is likely to incorporate a MediaTek octa-core chipset, instead of a quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm. The original N1 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which wasn't even a top end processor when it was announced.
At the same time, rumor has it that the purported mini version of N1 will be made available in LTE and non-LTE versions. The company hasn't announced the so-called "mini" version of N1 just yet, so we advise you to take these current rumors as a pinch of salt.
Earlier this year, Oppo launched the N1 in Indian market for a whooping Rs. 39,999. The N1 comes with a large 5.9-inch FHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal memory, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a touch sensitive area on the back, and a 3610mAh battery fitted inside.
Earlier in the day, Oppo announced its flagship smartphone, the Find 7, in China. The device, as speculated, to be made available in two versions: one with a Quad HD display (538ppi) and the other with Full HD screen (Full HD). The Oppo Find 7a will be released on March 20 for 2998 Yuan (Rs. 29,572) while the Oppo Find 7 will be priced at 3998 Yuan (Rs. 39,376).
