Oppo Mobiles has made its Indian market bow in grand fashion and thereby launching its flagship N1 phablet in the country priced at a staggering Rs 39,999. For a brand which is making its foray into the highly competitive Indian smartphone space it is highly ambitious on their part to expect the ‘price-conscious’ Indian consumers to splurge on the N1 which in terms of pricing is in parity with major names like Samsung, HTC, Sony and Nokia among others.

So what’s so special about the Oppo N1 that a price of around Rs 40K was assumed to be logical by the company? The smartphone is more like a phablet in size with a 5.9 inch full HD display and running on their own version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS called Color OS. Powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset and 2 GB RAM the big display device offers smooth performance and reliable display crispness. Available in 16/32 GB options the N1 does not come with expansion slot with its non-removable back panel that is loaded with a 3610 mAh battery to supplement the phablet’s power and size.

But other than all the usual commonalities, the N1 sports a 13 MP rotating camera that is capable of working in dual-mode both front and back and tilt up to 206 degrees. N1 is probably the first such device to offer a 13 MP capability for front and back ably supported by dual-model LED flash. The phablet is well built and does not feel bulky even at 217 grams but the device is definitely a handful. Other than that you have some nifty gesture-based features that lets you operate on the N1 without unlocking the phone by swiping down multiple fingers to make a call, play music and open the camera among others. Also included on the N1 are some touch buttons on the back panel. 

The phone comes in White color variant and will be available in the country for Rs 39,999 bundled with set of accessories.
