OPPO's smartphones have proved to be quite popular among consumers. The company may not be as well-known as Apple, Samsung, or other big players, but that is starting to change. Due to its commitment to quality, OPPO has seen a steady growth in its fan base and its latest additions are making waves on the smartphone market.

The OPPO R1 has now made its official debut in China as a mid-range handset. The smartphone sports a 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and a pixel density of 294 pixels per inch (ppi). Under the hood the R1 packs a quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 16GB of internal storage capacity, with no microSD card slot for additional memory.

Other specs include a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear shooter. If the front shooter wasn't impressive enough with its 5-megapixel sensors, the rear camera definitely stands out with its F/2.0 aperture for capturing high-quality photos and videos.

The smartphone measures 142.7 x 80.4 x 7.1 mm and weighs in at 140 grams. The OPPO R1 runs the company's Color OS, which blends in nicely with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and TD-SCDMA/GSM. The handset comes with a 2,498 Yuan (about $410) price tag.

OPPO has not mentioned yet whether the R1 would see a release outside of China, which means that for now it remains uncertain whether the handset will eventually make it to the U.S. Until then, many consider the new Motorola Moto G as the champion in the mid-range category for the U.S. market. If we hear anything about a global release for the OPPO R1, we'll make sure to keep you up to date.
