One of the smartphone makers from China, which entered the Indian market this year is Oppo. The company started operating in India from June 2014 by announcing the high-end Oppo N1 smartphone in the market.
The company has now fully started running its business in India and it is yet to start selling its first QHD device- the Find 7 in India. However, today, Oppo Mobile India started teasing the India launch of the Oppo N1 mini smartphone via its official Facebook account. It says "Revolutionary 24 Mega Pixels Ultra HD Camera, Coming Soon!" with caption "Mini in size Max on fun."
The Oppo N1 mini is obviously the stripped down variant of the regular N1 which is already selling in India. Very much like the regular one, the mini variant of the N1 also comes with a swivel camera which means that you can use a single camera module as both the front facing shooter and rear camera by just rotating it back and fourth.
However, the company has not hinted any price structure of the Oppo N1 mini smartphone but if a rough calculation is to be made, since it is priced at 2699 yuan in China, a direct conversion tells us that it could be priced somewhere around Rs 26,600 in India.
