As expected the Cyanogenmod-powered Oppo N1 has arrived, available for the same $599 price tag as the standard N1, but featuring custom packaging, a CyanogenMod phone case, the O-Click remote shutter, some Cyanogenmod stickers and – of course – CyanogenMod 10.2! If that’s not enough for you, the shipping is also included for free.
Aside from the unique packaging and default installation of CM10.2, there’s not much difference between the standard N1 and the CM Edition. Spec-wise we are still looking at a 5.9-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 600 CPU and 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB storage, rear touch panel, a rotating 13MP camera and a 3600mAh battery.
As an extra bonus for those that like to tinker, CyanogenMod Inc has also released the source code and factory images for the Oppo N1 CM Edition.
So should you pick up the CM Edition or the regular version of the handset? Honestly, it really depends on what type of experience you’re looking for out of the box.
If you’re a fan of Cyanogenmod and looking for a pre-installed experience with a few extras, you can’t go wrong here. Then again, if you’re more of the DIY-type, you could always snag the standard Oppo N1 and flash the upcoming official Oppo N1 CyanogenMod ROM.
What do you think of the first official CM-preloaded handset, interested in picking up the N1 or not?
