Oppo N1 Mini officially announced but not all details are known yet

Oppo N1 Mini

Just as expected, Oppo announced a smaller version of the N1 phablet. Unfortunately though, the Chinese company failed to mention all the details about the Oppo N1 Mini.

We do know it comes with a 5-inch screen but we don’t know which resolution that display can handle. We’re guessing/hoping it’s 1080p full HD but we can’t be sure; as far as we (don’t) know it could be 720p HD just as well. Similarly, we’re not aware what kind of chip the N1 Mini sports. Earlier rumors suggested it relies on an octa-core SoC that could be made by either MediaTek (MT6592) or Samsung (Exynos 5422 Octa).

What we do know is that he Mini has the same-as-the-regular-N1 Sony-made 13-megapixel swivel camera with a 6-lens setup, f/2.0 aperture and a 1/3.2″ sensor size.

LTE connectivity will also be on board on some models, but we’re guessing there will be 3G-only variants made for markets where 4G networks aren’t widely present.

Finally, users will be able to choose between multiple color variants. Unlike its bigger brother which was available in black and white only, the N1 Mini will also be selling in other colors.

Missing details should be known shortly. Oppo scheduled an event for June 10th, when we’ll hopefully get the missing pieces of this puzzle. At that time, we’re also hoping to learn a thing or two about the N1 Mini’s international availability. Stay tuned in the meantime.

    Oppo announced so little. No CPU information – no interest from me. ;)
