Choice of ColorOS or CyanogenMod with no hacking required
OPPO's latest big flagship phone, the N1, will go on sale direct to consumers starting December 10th for $599 in the U.S. and €449 in Europe. Built to have some of the latest in hardware innovation, the N1 is sporting a 5.9-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of storage, along with an interesting 13MP camera that swivels to face either direction on the device. It also has a touch panel on the back for navigating through the interface while using the N1 in one hand.
Beyond just its hardware, the N1 has the interesting feature of being able to run CyanogenMod out of the box through the stock recovery without any rooting or advanced tinkering required. Although there will be a limited run of special devices with CM pre-installed, all N1's will be able to make the quick conversion from OPPO's default ColorOS to CyanogenMod.
A full list of countries that will have the N1 available at launch isn't readily available, but OPPO has put up a page with a country locator that can give you a pretty good idea. You'll see the third-party OPPO Style store selling to most of North and South America, Europe and Asia, with Amazon also selling to the U.S. and some other retailers such as Mobicity in Australia getting in on the action.
