Limited Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition ships next month


Back in September, Oppo launched an extremely unusual flagship, its N1. What’s so weird about this phone? Well, aside from the rear touch panel and the rotating camera, the handset has official CyanogenMod support. At the time of Oppo’s launch announcement, we learned that users would have a choice between running CyanogenMod or the company’s own ColorOS. While that’s very true, today we hear about a special CyanogenMod Edition of the N1, for users really excited about Oppo and Cyanogen pairing up.

Functionally, the differences between this and the stock N1 are minor – while the regular one makes it super-easy to flash from ColorOS to CM, it does come with ColorOS as the default, while this new version is CyanogenMod straight out of the box.

Beyond that, you also get some custom packaging, stickers (woo!), and a case featuring both Oppo’s and Cyanogen’s mascots. It might not sound like all that much, but at least Oppo’s not charging any extra for the special edition – that means a price that works out to about $570, last we checked.

The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition ships to international markets next month.
