Earlier today we heard that CyanogenMod has received another $23 million in funding, and now the company has announced, along with Oppo, that their first smartphone will launch on the 24th of December the Oppo N1 CyanogenMod smartphone.
The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod edition has now passed Google’s compatibility test suite, which means that the device will officially get the Google Play store and the handset has now been certified by Google.
Steve has already “spilled the beans”, but I wanted to follow up with a better post than his in-passing comments (which some of you may have missed).
The Oppo N1 device running CyanogenMod 10.2 has officially passed Google’s CTS and CDD certification programs, which marks a major milestone for everyone in this project, not just those working on the N1 project itself. This has been something a long time in the making, ever since CM 4.0.4.
The Oppo N1 comes with a 5.9 inch full high definition display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the device is powered by a quad core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and comes with 2GB of RAM.
Other specifications on the Oppo N1 include a 13 megapixel camera that is used for both the front and rear facing cameras as it can be rotated 180 degrees.
As yet there are no details on how much the CyanogenMod version of the Oppo N1 will retail for, the standard handset retails for $599.
