One of the biggest problems with photography on our smartphones is low light situations and using the flash. Mainly because it sits right next to the shutter and usually washes out colors and ruins any decent shot.

OPPO has recently shared the latest teaser for the N1 smartphone. This arrives as trailer #3 and measures in at just 28 seconds in length.

OPPO N1 image leak further details the size

OPPO has already confirmed the display size for the N1 smartphone. That confirmation came back in early September and has the display sitting at 5.9-inches.
