Yes, CyanogenMod fans, there is a Santa Claus. Cyanogen Inc. announced early on Christmas Eve morning that the long-awaited Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is now available on Oppo's web store. It costs the same $599 as the standard N1, but comes pre-loaded with CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3). You'll also get spiffy custom packaging, a CyanogenMod phone case (plus a standard case), the O-click remote shutter, and a few stickers to show your devotion. Shipping is free, but will take a while in the middle of the holidays.

As we reported earlier, CyanogenMod on the Oppo N1 has passed the Google compatibility test suite and other milestones, giving it official access to Google's closed-source applications and the Google Play Store. That makes the N1 CyanogenMod Edition the first retail phone released with a community-driven ROM that's truly consumer-ready. Just in case you're unfamiliar with the Oppo N1, the CM Edition shares identical specs with the wider version: 5.9-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a rear touch panel, a distinct lack of LTE, and the unique 13-megapixel camera mounted on a rotating housing.

But wait, there's more! Since Cyanogen is maintaining the software for this version of the N1, they're starting as they mean to go on. So from day one you can download a factory image of the release software, allowing ROM fanatics and tinkerers a safe place to return to if they mess up. They've also posted kernel source code and the code for the 10.2 ROM itself, along with the basic files for advanced users to build an early version of CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4) for the device.

There's just one piece of the puzzle left: a flashable ROM for the standard model Oppo N1. Oppo said in earlier press presentations that the general consumer version of the N1 would be capable of flashing CyanogenMod from the stock recovery. We'll let you know when those files show up.

      To each his own. I thought she was cute.

  • Stanley Chan

    Everybody will beat me, but is too big , white (makes even bigger), didnt like the camera idea.

    Lets wait for another model with 5inch screen (we dont need more than this), black and a little more discreet.

    • Guest

      The screen size is fine. . . maybe too big for you, but fine for many others. I prefer a device that has a 6" screen with minimal bezel. However, the top and bottom bezel on this thing make the phone feel much bigger than it actually needs to be — compare it to a Note 3.

      • Kid.Drunkadelic

        no his opinion is right, I just sold my note 2 after reading his comment, I await what phone I should get vai a DM from him

  • anon

    Why would anyone buy this instead of a (Nexus 5 + CM) ?

    • Napster87

      Specs. The better battery, bigger screen and rotating camera i'm sure are valid reasons for picking this over the nexus.

      • anon

        Specs NO, bigger screen TOO BIG, rotating camera WILL WEAR SOON, better battery YES.

        • Napster87

          Please link me to where you found the wear tests on the camera.

  • http://www.emuparadise.me/roms-isos-games.php rarely online

    Nexus 5 is better.

  • Craig M

    I wouldn't choose this over the Nexus 5, especially considering the price difference. $600 bucks?

  • seggmeng
