Oppo officially announced the R1 back in early December, though the company didn’t reveal much about the device’s hardware. Now we have a bit more information as the device makes its debut in China today.
According to UnwiredView, the Oppo R1 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Oppo’s Color OS user interface. It also sports a 5-inch screen with a 720p resolution, a quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 16GB of onboard storage, a 2,410mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Judging from the photos, it also has a more premium look, with chamfered edges that remind us a bit of the sides of Apple’s iPhones.
If you want a high-end device from Oppo, you might want to consider the N1. It’ll set you back about $200 more, but comes with CyanogenMod pre-installed and has a more powerful Snapdragon 600 processor, a 13-megapixel camera, a larger battery and more. There’s no word yet on a U.S. release for the Oppo R1, but we’ll let you know if that changes.
