Oppo N1 Mini Launch Set for May 30

Last week the Oppo N1 Mini leaked out on its way through the FCC, and today the Chinese company has confirmed the device with a press invitation posted on Weibo for an event on May 30. The new handset is expected to be a scaled-back version of the N1, which launched late last year.

Based on recent leaks, we’re expecting the Oppo N1 Mini to offer a 5-inch 720p display, a rotating 13-megapixel camera, a 2140mAh battery and LTE capability. It’s unclear if the device will come in a CyanogenMod variant like the flagship model. Otherwise, the design looks extremely similar to the full-sized Oppo N1, though it should be significantly easier to fit into your pocket compared to the original 5.9-inch model.

Oppo is also expected to announce a follow-up N2 phone in the near future, but we’re not expecting to see this device unveiled on May 30. We haven’t heard anything about the new smartphone beyond its alleged name, and it’s probably still too early to release a new flagship model just six months after the Oppo N1 hit the market.
