During the already completed Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, one of the most interesting stands was the OPPO Chinese company. The device that attracted the most attention was a 5.9-inch phablet equipped with a rotating camera.
The rotating mechanism of the camera may not be extremely innovative, but it proves that Chinese companies have ended up with a policy of copying everything that falls into the spotlight, and has focused on creating trends. Especially since this solution works very well and the device has nothing to do with “cheap chinese”.
On the video below you can see what exactly is the idea of a rotary camera.
The quality of the device makes the impression that plastic used much closer to the ones known from Nokia than Samsung. The matt surface is even “nice to the touch”, and thanks to rounding the back panel, the N1 is perfectly in the palm despite its right size.
The OPPO N1 does not differ from its competitors, the 5.9-inch Full HD display, 2GB RAM, and the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 make Android running smoothly and smoothly.
I would be tempted to say that the performance, appearance and rotating 13 megapixel camera equates the slight advantage of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hardware. If I were to choose one of these two phablets, I would have no hesitation in choosing the one from China.
