Oppo is one of the few Chinese companies whose phones have made it to the shops outside of China. A device responsible for the company’s successful debut on international market was the Oppo Find 5. Some folks probably thought that Oppo’s success would be short-lived and would end when sales of the Find 5 drop, however, everything suggests otherwise. The company’s upcoming handset, the Oppo N1 will introduce a few innovative features and might be a big hit. The Oppo N1 is expected to be announced in September, possibly the 23rd.
Oppo N1 to have all buttons on-screen only and full-fledged touchpad on the back
You do not have to wait that long to take a glimpse at the phone, though. New photos of a device, we believe is the Oppo N1 have appeared simultaneously on Weibo website and on @evleaks Twitter account. The images look legit enough and seem to be in accordance with what we previously heard about the phone, as well as with official teasers released by Oppo itself. The photos confirm that the speaker, USB port, and headphone jack will be located at the bottom of the device. Also, it appears that Oppo ditched capacitive buttons and all buttons will be on-screen only.
The back panel of the N1 will house a full-fledged touchpad that will allow users to scroll, double click and long press. We have already seen similar solutions in other devices, but Oppo might take navigating a smartphone to a whole new level. The touchpad will be located below camera. And speaking of the camera, it will feature new N-Lens and a Xenon flash. According to the rumors, the shooter will come with either 12 megapixels or 13 megapixels, however, this part has not been confirmed yet.
