Last week Oppo officially announced the N1 Mini without actually telling us a lot about its specs. Just a few details were made public, and we’ve been left guessing what exactly the handset is packing.
While Oppo still hasn’t done anything to change that situation, at least we now know how much the N1 Mini will cost. And it’s anything but cheap. The price in China is 2,699 yuan. That currently amounts to approximately $431 or €317. Sure, it’s 1,300 yuan less than the ‘full size’ Oppo N1, but it’s only 100 yuan (about $15) cheaper than the upcoming HTC One E8, which sports flagship specs. All in all, it doesn’t look like the N1 Mini will be a best seller with that price.
According to MTKsj, the Oppo N1 Mini will have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (MSM8928), probably clocked at 1.6 GHz. Its 5-inch screen will have 720p HD resolution (which we knew already), though it will only sport 2 GB of internal storage. Hopefully this is a mistake and we’re talking about RAM. If not, then expect to see 1 GB of RAM in there, and very little space for installing apps and such. The camera is a 13 MP rotating unit, and the battery has 2,140 mAh capacity. The Oppo N1 Mini runs Color OS 1.4, which is based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It will be released in China on June 11.
