Oppo debuts in Malaysia with the N1 – priced RM1,798

Amid glitzy video presentations and stylish dance acts, Oppo Electronics CEO William Fang revealed a line up that included the mid range R1 and the budget Find 5 Mini, but the star was definitely the N1 which features a 5.9-inch Full HD 1080p IPS display, Snapdragon 600 CPU from Qualcomm, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.

The Oppo N1 is the first device to be released with ColorOS, a customised Android interface that makes heavy use of gesture drawing controls with one or multiple fingers, even when the screen is off. For example, the user can turn on the smartphone, the camera, switch back and forth between currently playing music, and more. There is a gesture control panel in the dropdown bar where you can customise gestures to suit your needs and launch particular apps.

With such a large display profile, users might find it cumbersome to reach around and click the camera button while taking photos or ‘selfies’. To that end, the Chinese brand has included the innovative O-touch panel on the rear of the mobile phone: tapping the rear panel activates the camera without any button press, and it can also be used to take the image and to scroll through the gallery.

O-touch is not the only highlight of the N1- instead of of two cameras on the front and rear as is prevalent with smartphones, the star of Oppo’s N series features a single camera on a swivel that can rotate 206 degrees and can auto adjust to come on when facing the front, rear and detect when to activate the flash.

The camera has 13-megapipxels, on the level with some of the top devices on the market for a phablet, and has a Beauty photo editing function which automatically colors images and look better than it already does- which is pretty good!

Oppo boss William Fang says a team of 1500 engineers worked on developing the N1 over a period of 18 months, with one of the most notable innovations being the O-click remote which connects wireless-ly by Bluetooth to the device. The O-click functions both as a remote control, including to remote;y control the camera, and as a security feature which enables the N1 to emit a high-pitched alarm.

The Oppo N1 was announced to retail here for RM1,798, and will be available nationwide by the end of this month. The O-Click will be sold separately for around RM160. Sources say limited edition CyanogenMod versions of the flagship will also be made locally.

Along with the N1, Oppo unveiled the R1 with a 1280×720 resolution screen and an excellent 8-megapixel rear shooter; the Oppo Find 5 Mini and the Neo which is the most affordable device in the bunch.¬†Fang says service centers are being prepped in 9 major cities around the country including KL, Penang, Ipoh, Kuantan, and Kota Kinabalu with a simultaneous release expected nationwide.
