Oppo’s N1 is an interesting phone for a lot of reasons: a rear touch panel, that cool rotating camera… but one that’s really grabbing a big chunk of the attention is the phone’s special status as officially supporting CyanogenMod as an alternate platform. Earlier this month, we saw the regular N1 go up for sale, which fully supports users re-flashing their handsets with a CM ROM. In addition to that model, we’ve also known about a special CyanogenMod Edition of the phone, which would arrive from the factory with CM already installed and ready to go; this week, that CM N1 becomes available for purchase, as well.
Besides arriving with CM pre-flashed, this version of the N1 also has unique packaging, a CyanogenMod cover, and comes with CM stickers – but more importantly, it doesn’t cost any more than the standard N1. That means you’ll be able to pick one up starting at just about $600.
That will buy you a phone with a 5.9-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 SoC. In addition to those features we already mentioned above, the N1 comes with a remote “O-Click” Bluetooth fob for camera control and proximity-based security. Now we’re just curious to see how shoppers respond to this package.
