Chinese manufacturer Oppo has announced that it'll ship a limited edition version of its new N1 handset with aftermarket firmware CyanogenMod as the default operating system. Regular Oppo N1 devices, which run the company's Android 4.2-based ColorOS as standard, will already support the ability to install CM through the stock recovery, but the difference with the CM edition is it'll arrive running CyanogenMod software out of the box. In addition to all of CM's features and a visual style closer to stock Android, the device will also include "extra CyanogenMod accessories" — stickers, packaging and cases featuring the CM and Oppo mascots.
As you'd expect from the close partnership between Oppo and CM, CyanogenMod on the N1 will fully support the device's array of wacky features.
"The CyanogenMod team has tailored their software to specifically support all of the unique features of the OPPO N1 including the O-Touch back touch panel, O-Click Bluetooth remote control, the revolutionary rotating camera, and also unique features from ColorOS such as double tap to wake and screen-off gestures."
The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition will debut internationally in December, priced the same as the regular N1 — that's 3498 yuan in China, which translates into around $570 or £360.
