The much-touted Oppo N1 is finally ready to make its debut, launching on Dec. 10 in the U.S. and Europe.

While not everyone has heard of Oppo, the company has some impressive smartphones in its portfolio. It was the first one to launch a smartphone with a 1080p display and now it introduces another novel feature with the Oppo N1, which sports a unique camera ability.

Oppo has officially announced that its latest Android smartphone, the high-end Oppo N1, will hit the U.S. and Europe in a little over a week. The handset will be available with CyanogenMod and Oppo's Color OS as well, which is a customized version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

In terms of specifications, the new Oppo N1 comes with a large 5.9-inch display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU) and 2GB of RAM.

The Oppo N1 also features a high-end 13-megapixel camera with a unique feature: it rotates 180 degrees, allowing users to use it both as a rear camera and a front shooter. This means that Oppo N1 owners will be able to take high-quality photos, while also enjoying high-quality video when using video chat applications such as Skype, Google Hangouts or others.

Oppo handsets are among the most underrated devices out there, but this is starting to change. The company has always looked for ways to differentiate its smartphones and set them apart from the crowd, and its efforts have not gone unnoticed.

The Oppo Find 5 received high praise, and the Oppo N1 is expected to become a popular smartphone in both Europe and the U.S. In addition to its unique camera rotation feature, the Oppo N1 is also the first smartphone to launch with CyanogenMod.

When it comes to pricing, the Oppo N1 will cost $599 in the U.S. and €449 in Europe when it becomes available on Dec. 10. For interested buyers in the U.S., however, it's worth pointing out that the smartphone will not work on CDMA networks such as Verizon's.
