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!
