After first breaking the news of the Oppo N1 and its new camera technology that is expected to compete against the likes of the Galaxy Camera and the upcoming Sony Honami, the company itself posted a teaser of the imminent arrival of the device and its highly-anticipated feature, a rear touch panel. Today, a couple of images of the smartphone have surfaced online on Weibo, along with a leaked image courtesy of EvLeaks, giving us a look at what to expect.

As you can see, the images show the white version of the device, with a large display and a slim form factor. It looks like all the navigation buttons are going to be on-screen, and we can also see that there are no buttons on the right side of the device, with the bottom housing the microphone, speaker, microUSB port, and headphone jack.

Of course, it’s a little disappointing that an image of the rear of the device, which is expected to feature the new N-lens 13MP camera and touch panel, aren’t available. But, the company has posted a chart on its Weibo page showcasing some of the capabilities of the touch panel, which include swiping through pages, scrolling, change songs, full camera control, along with other user-defined functions as well.

We now know what the Oppo N1 looks like, and at least some of the functionality of the rear touch panel, but we’ll still have to wait to find out exactly what the specifications of the device are. With the Oppo N1 being launched in September, stay tuned as we find out more!

What are your thoughts? What do you think of the design of the Oppo N1? Is the rear touch panel going to be a useful feature? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Looks good and also looks BIG, that picture makes it look like the size of Z Ultra! I can’t find the usefulness of rear touch panel, but at first I didn’t like the G2’s rear buttons either, so we’ll see…

    BTW a new writer? :)

        Ok sorry, I forget names easily (and yours is hard!)

    Display must be more then 5 inch ( on this pictures). Camera is OK,13MP.About rear touch panel,I don’t see inconvenience.

    I like it, I think it’s a good feature for large devices. I belive that’s what was shown on the back of the HTC One max pictures that are floating around. The weak point of large devices is one handed operation is awkward to impossible. That would eliminate that weak point which is why I belive HTC was at least testing the feature on the Max. Oppo has been getting a lot of press as of late in what regions are they sold? I’ve never seen one in the US.

    This may be my next device, it looks sooo sexy and if it follows the top specs/price that the Oppo Find 5 had when it was released, I will definitely grab one as soon as it hits Europe…

    By the way, has anyone else noticed that it has NO BUTTONS AT ALL, on the pictures we can see both sides, and there are no buttons, either it’s going to have a knoc knoc feature (Like LG G2’s, and the Find 5 also has it in the lastest official ROM) or maybe it has something to do with the touch panel on the back… I doubt they would put a power button on top, it would be so hard to press on a 5″+ device…

    Also waiting for the Nexus 5, but if this has an option to come with stock android like the last Oppo’s phone does, it will be a hard call…

        Wow it took you an hour to answer yourself. Good to know you were able to help yourself when no one else cared.

        • Edward Smith

          lol, I figured it out in like 10 mins, I just posted it so no one would bother to respond.

    This is one sexy mf’ing phone.
    If only the Honami had this shape, I’d be all over it like a fat kid to candy.
