Oppo N1

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.

OPPO N1 CyanogenMod Edition
OPPO recently unveiled the OPPO N1, an innovative device outfitted with a large 5.9” HD screen, rotating camera and a rear touch panel.

A limited supply of OPPO N1 devices will ship running CyanogenMod.

The limited OPPO N1 CyanogenMod edition also comes with extras like CyanogenMod stickers, unique CyanogenMod packaging, and a specially designed case for the N1 featuring CyanogenMod and OPPO mascots, Cid and Ollie.

Non-limited international OPPO N1 devices ship with OPPO’s ColorOS system, and will support the installation of CyanogenMod directly from the OPPO N1 stock recovery without the user needing to root and install a custom recovery. In addition, it will come pre-loaded with CyanogenMod making it easy to flash CyanogenMod directly without downloading or transferring any files.

Unprecedented Partnership
OPPO’s partnership with CyanogenMod marks the creation of the world’s first CyanogenMod hardware product. It is also the first time CyanogenMod has made software customizations for a smartphone manufacturer.
