OPPO N1 official with rotating 13 megapixel camera

As we had been expecting, the OPPO N1 has been officially announced. There is some time before the handset will be available for purchase, however OPPO has offered a full set of specs -- including details on how the handset will be the first to ship with CyanogenMod preinstalled. First things first though, the specs and the breakdown of the different models and availability.

Focal camera app removed from CyanogenMod

CyanogenMod detailed phase 1 of Nemesis back in late-July and as a result we saw a new camera app called Focal. The app isn't widely available in CyanogenMod ROMs at this point, however it was available for download for those who were willing to sideload the apk file. But with that in mind, it looks like the Focal camera app has been removed and it is looking like it will remain separate from CyanogenMod moving forward.

OPPO N1 teaser brings hints of exterior lines

As we had been expecting, OPPO has shared another teaser video for the N1 smartphone. This latest teaser mirrors what we have been seeing with the earlier videos. Basically, that is to say the video is short and offers little in terms of solid details. Then again, it does appear as if OPPO has shown the overall shape of the handset.

OPPO N1 teasing continues ahead of upcoming announcement

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. This video fits firmly into the teaser category and while it does leave us wanting to see a bit more -- we do have to remember the official announcement will be coming fairly soon. In fact, OPPO has already said they will be unveiling the N1 smartphone on September 23rd.

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. There isn't any question that is on the large size in terms of smartphones, however sometimes a hands-on image can really drive that point home.

Snapchat Micro app arriving for Samsung Galaxy Gear users

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Gear smartwatch in Berlin last week. At the time we learned the specs of the watch and a bit about the availability. In fact, we have already begun to see the watch show up for pre-order in the US market. Since that point we have also seen details about how the watch had 12 apps ready for launch with more than 70 others in the works. Well, it looks like Snapchat will be one of those apps.
