This is what you have been waiting for. The OPPO N1 will be available for purchase starting from December 10, 2013.

The N1 is available with Oppo's own skinned Android, with CyanogenMod, or with both. Interesting approach that I hope more manufacturers adopt. Too bad the N1 is such an ugly monstrosity - 5.9" (!) with rotatable camera (!) - compared to its beautiful, elegant, understated, and timeless predecessor.

The phone is far from being an "ugly monstrosity"! Maybe it's not quite as sleek and stylish as it's predecessor (which won't be a universally held opinion) but what an OTT comment by Thom.

I think you're proving my point by quoting yourself.

"It's an ugly monstrosity compared to it's predecessor."

Vs e.g. it doesn't look quite so elegant compared to it's predecessor.

There's a world of difference.

By no stretch of the imagination is it an "ugly monstrosity" in comparison.
