In an event that took place just minutes ago in Beijing Oppo have announced the release of the Oppo N1. The handset features rear touch panel called “O-Touch” and a multi-touch OS which adds a splash of colour and time-saving tricks.

The makers of the much lauded Find 5 have unveiled their latest and greatest handset, with a 1080p display in a screen size of 5.9″ .

Also included is the worlds first rotating camera, a 13MP unit which turns 206 degrees thus enabling you to take pictures from all sorts of interesting angles and also comes with O-Click, a small remote to enable you to take photos wirelessly.  The processor is a 1.7GHz quad-core APQ8064 model and also featured is a rear touch panel.

It’s just been confirmed that, as expected, the N1 will ship with CyanogenMod. Cyanogen – aka Steve Kondik – is at the event.
