Oppo expanded its flagship smartphone lineup on Friday with a downsized version of the Oppo N1, in an effort to increase its market share in the lucrative Chinese smartphone market. After Samsung, HTC and Sony, Oppo is apparently carrying on the trend with a smaller version of its N1 smartphone.
Earlier this week, Oppo had confirmed that the company would announce the mini version of N1 on Friday. Now, Oppo has officially announced the mini version of N1, dubbed the N1 Mini, in China. The 5-inch device indeed looks like a smaller N1; though, the company hasn't shared much else about the phone. Interestingly, the N1 Mini is now listed on Oppo's official China website.
The phone, Oppo N1 Mini, features a similar design to the original N1. As PhoneArena reports, the smaller version also sports the same 13-megapixel swivel camera like its predecessor, which can be repositioned for both front and rear-facing shots.
So far, the spec sheet remains a mystery. However, the official website does confirm the device to come with LTE connectivity and weighs in at 150grams. The phone will certainly run on ColorOS 1.4 running on top of Android.
Other details on the N1 Mini are still not confirmed, but it is rumored come with a 5-inch HD display. The mini variant of the handset will reportedly come packing either a MediaTek MT6592 processor or a Samsung Exynos 5422 chip.
In the meanwhile, Gforgames is reporting that Oppo will hold a press event on June 10, where the handset manufacturer will, most probably, disclose the rest of Oppo Mini N1′s spec sheet. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
