The hype surrounding the Oppo N1 continues to grow, with the device expected to offer some amazing features, including a great camera, plug-in camera lenses, and an unique rear touch panel. While we’ve heard a lot about these features, there was no information on the hardware of the device, until today.

Courtesy of a “leaked” image of the motherboard of the smartphone by an Oppo executive on Sina Weibo, we now know that the Oppo N1 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, laying to rest any doubts that the device might not be a high-end one. The image shows the Qualcomm MSM8274 chip, which is the non-LTE version of the Snapdragon 800. The image also confirms that the Oppo N1 will feature expandable storage via microSD, which is a must have for a lot of users.

The highly-anticipated smartphone will be announced on September 23, with the company posting teaser videos on its website every three or four days, until the launch. You can check out the first teaser trailer below, which unfortunately, tells us absolutely nothing about the Oppo N1. Hopefully, the next trailer, available in 2 days, will give us something more.

Oppo also took to Twitter to tease a poster that stated “Color and N1 to be revealed on September 23,” which means that the Oppo N1 could feature the company’s all new Color ROM pre-loaded.

As great as the Find 5 was, the Oppo N1 is well on its way to becoming the breakout smartphone for the company, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this device.

    Only problem i had with the Find 5 was the stupid looking ROM, so a new ROM is great news. That aside OPPO looks to be the only manufacturer who full supports custom ROM-s. You can even find supported ROM-s on the Find 5 product page. Big respect for that! And not only that, they look to be releasing new phones with an option of stock Android.

    The only problem about Find 5 is that it is more expansive than S4, HTC One and any other flagship in my country. Even iphone 5 is cheaper than this.

    • Luka Mlinar

      Dude the Find 5 is cheaper then any of them. For 399 you buy the phone and get free DHL shipping withing a 2-3 days. Check you stuff before you post it.

        He said in his country. It could be that it costs a lot to import/the other flagships are somewhat cheaper there

        • Luka Mlinar

          Doubt it. I Live in Croatia and the iPhone had a price as high as 2000$ at one point.

        Don’t be so aggressive man. They clearly said in their country. Learn to treat fellow humans with respect before you post. Did they downvote you? No, so what’s your problem?

        • Luka Mlinar

          That’s aggressive? Well then my bad. Still call his comment bullshit. :)

  • Hmm seen this somewhere

    This won’t be available in the US, correct?

    • David

      Perhaps unlocked, I doubt any carrier will pick it up.

      Hard to say. The Find 5 did make it to Europe and there’s a chance you’ll be able to find the N1 at some US retail store (possibly with overseas warranty). Oppo is expanding so sooner or later they’ll enter the major markets.

      I think, because of Apple, Oppo would not sell their products directly in US. Apple might say that ‘Oppo’ pronounces similar as ‘Apple’,…’multi-touch’, ’rounded rectangular icons’, ‘simplistic design’…

    My $200 Nexus 4 hasn’t arrived yet and might have the shortest life over here.

    Let’s see: at least 3500 mAh battery, micro sd, high ppi of at least 450, 5.2 HD IPS screen with 450 brightness nits, 13 megapixel camera with OIS and xenon flash, minimal bloatware with cool UI, 3GB RAM, thin almost edge-to-edge screen, great speaker and water proof. Where do I line up?

      No LTE. That one thing kills this…
