Purported Oppo N1 Mini Leaks Out in FCC Filing

by Jacob Kleinman | May 20, 2014

Last week specs for a smaller spinoff of the Oppo N1 leaked online, and now it looks like the device has been cleared for landing by the FCC. PhoneArena spotted the new filing on Tuesday, revealing a fresh batch of photos that give us a first look at the upcoming smartphone.

The leaked handset looks pretty similar to the Oppo N1, right down to its unique rotating 13-megapixel camera. The smaller handset apparently sports a 5-inch 720p display compared to the original phone’s 5.9-inch 1080p screen, while the battery has also been downgraded from 3610 mAh to 2140 mAh to fit its new frame. The device also supports LTE, GSM and EDGE networks, meaning it will work on at least some carriers here in the U.S.

It’s unclear when the N1 Mini will actually hit the market, though an FCC filing is generally a good sign that things are moving along nicely. Oppo is also expected to announce a follow-up N2 handset at some point, but for now we know even less about this upcoming flagship phone.
