Oppo N1 Mini Leaks in Live Pictures, Include 5-Inch HD Display, 13MP Camera

One of the most popular Android smartphones in China, the Oppo N1, made the jump to other Asian countries a few months ago. Given the phone’s popularity among Android users, the Chinese company seems determined to launch a mini version of the N1, which will be available for a lower price.

For those unfamiliar with the standard Oppo N1, the smartphone is a beast when it comes to specs. It boasts a huge 5.9-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution and either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. The phablet is powered by a decent 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit and 2GB of RAM. The bad news is that the Oppo N1 does not come with microSD card slot for storage expansion, so those who rely on internal memory should pick the 32GB model. The device packs a 13-megapixel swivel camera which can be rotated at 180 degrees to take pictures, which is why it doesn’t need a secondary camera in the front.Oppo N1 drains energy from a 3610 mAh battery and offers multiple connectivity options, including HSDPA, HSUPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB with USB on-the-go support.

The mini version of the Oppo N1 will still pack higher than average specs, but it will be cheaper than the original model. According to Phonearena, the smartphone has recently been spotted at the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which means that we should see this one being announced very soon. Dubbed R9C-N5116, the smartphone is shown in multiple pictures and some of its specs are also confirmed. For example, the Oppo N1 mini should pack a 5-inch HD (720p) capacitive touchscreen display, instead of the huge 5.9-inch one included in the standard model. The mini variant will also maintain the same 13-megapixel swivel camera, allowing users to rotate it at 180 degrees. Oppo N1 mini will be powered by a smaller 2140 mAh battery, but given the smaller display, it should be enough.

Although there’s no word on when exactly the smartphone will go on sale, we expect Oppo to make the N1 mini official in the next couple of weeks. The smartphone will certainly be available in several Asian countries, but it’s unclear whether or not Oppo will bring the N1 mini to North America. Europeans may have more luck, as Oppo has already launched its online store in this region. Stay tuned for more on this one.
