Few months ago, we got to learn about how CyanogenMod is no more a team; rather it had become a company. Though, the scenario had already took place early in 2013 , the report was kept secret for while. For which, no one has a certain answer. Everyone(including me) got curious to know how will CyanogenMod will work as a company. But days after, the first milestone was set ; a CyanogenMod variant of Oppo N1. And, today CyanogenMod almost ‘Dashed’ the questions and revealed some of the major specifications.
To start off, Oppo has revealed that December is the month when we will get our hands on CM-Oppo N1. The company noted in a press release that this limited edition phone will be available internationally at the same price as regular OPPO N1 devices.
Also, Oppo noted that the CM variant of the device will get extra goodies such as CyanogenMod stickers, unique CyanogenMod packaging, and a specially designed case for the N1 featuring CyanogenMod and OPPO mascots, Cid and Ollie.
To remind you, Oppo N1 was launched back in last month. With awesome specifications which includes 5.9-inch Full HD display, 13MP rotating camera, a rear touch panel, Android 4.2 based Color OS and 3610mAh battery.
If you remember, the CyanogenMod saga is no different than Xiaomi. Both started off as a community of Devs building ROMS which finally they were successful at converting into business. So it would be quite interesting to see if CyanogenMod can be able to follow the same trend or not?
What’s you though on it? Do let us know.
