As promised, Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has launched its N1 Mini smartphone in India today. The company has priced the phone at INR 26,990 and it will go on sale immediately in the country.
Originally introduced in June this year, the Oppo N1 Mini is a smaller cousin of the company’s previously launched N1 smartphone. Like N1, the N1 Mini also comes with a rotating camera, which acts as both rear and front cameras.
According to Oppo, the 13MP camera on-board N1 Mini is capable of shooting 24MP images, thanks to the company’s Super Zoom technology, which combines multiple images to create a more detailed and better photograph.
Among other specifications, the smartphone comes with 5-inch 720p HD display, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.3-based Color OS, 2140 mAh battery, and 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. The phone also packs 16GB of internal storage, 4G LTE support, and the usual set of connectivity options.
Oppo N1 Mini will be sold in White, Mint and Yellow colour option, however the Yellow colour option will be released next month.
“Customer orientation is deeply rooted in the culture at OPPO. We strive to give users what they really look for. OPPO N1 Mini stems from this philosophy of ours. It brings to users the unique design and technology for which the OPPO N1 won a lot of accolades, but in a sleeker and more compact body. For OPPO, a fusion of technology and affection has always been the essence of our product design and development. We believe that today’s youth will find OPPO N1 Mini as a device that is mini in size and max in fun,” said Tom Lu, CEO, OPPO India.
The phone is clearly over-priced and we hope that Oppo realises this soon and starts pricing its devices decently. Apart from an interesting camera and 4G LTE support, there is hardly anything on phone, which is not offered by the competition at far lower pricing. What are your thoughts?
