Oppo N1 now available in Europe and the U.S. for €449 or $599

It’s your lucky day if you hopped to get the hot-new Oppo N1. The device is now available from Oppo Style website, selling for €449 or $599, whatever works for you best.

As you probably already know, what makes this device unique is its fancy 13-megapixel rotating camera that is not found on any other smartphone/phablet. Rest of the specs are rock-solid as well, and include a 5.9-inch full HD screen, 2GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, as well as 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. Unfortunately though, you can’t get the CyanogenMod ROM pre-installed on the N1; rather you’ll have to manually cram it on the phablet. Oppo promises an easy procedure to add these customizations to the mix, and since they are a CyanogenMod partner – we tend to believe them this is the case.

There’s one other caveat – the Oppo N1 in its current iteration lacks 4G LTE connectivity support, which could be a deal-breaker for many. Moreover, some of us would like to see it rocking Qualcomm’s faster Snapdragon 800 chip, but I’m sure even the 600 will do the job.

So the question now is – do you mind pouring out that much money on a 4G-less device? Or you prefer waiting for its LTE-enabled counterpart that will hopefully (though we don’t know) be unveiled next year. What do you say?
