Oppo announces 5-inch Oppo N1 Mini smartphone with 13MP rotary camera
So, how does the Oppo N1 Mini measure up to its big, bulky brother? While the latter measures 6.72 x 3.25 x 0.35 inches (170.7 x 82.6 x 9 mm), the former is a more sane 5.84 x 2.84 x 0.35 inches (148.4 x 72.2 x 9.2 mm) at a weight of 150 grams. Still, the phone is even taller and slightly wider than the HTC One M8, for example, but this is due to the rotating camera - a highlight of Oppo's N-series.
Specs-wise, the Oppo N1 Mini goes for a 720p display (down from 1080p), a battery capacity of 2140mAh (down from 3610mAh), and what is probably an eight-core MediaTek CPU with 1GB of RAM. The exact specs are a mistery for now, but Oppo will probably speak more about it on the N1 Mini's official announcement event. What's for certain is that the phone retains the 13-megapixel rotating camera, which makes it the best selfie-capable camera that's currently available.
The phone's launch event is scheduled for June 10, while shipments should start the following day in limited regions.

5 inch "Mini".
I still remember when 3.5 inches was huge. (That's what she said)

I don't belive she ever said that (and if she did, she was just humoring you).

This is insane. It's too big to be a mini.

It's because the original N1 was 5,9 inch, so this thing can be called as a mini (sorry if my english bad)

I Know 5" is MINI... But I don't know its true for phones too...

It's called a 'Mini' because it's still relatively smaller than its bigger brother. People always get confused about 'Mini' phones.

In before everyone complains about big "Minis", go spam the internet with complaints about Mini Vans are still huge and bigger than compact class.
The only "true mini" so far is the Z1 Compact, oh wait...

The next one will be little mini with 4.7".

Why are people complaining about the size? Just because it's a cheaper phone doesn't been they have to sacrifice the screen dimensions. I think the 5" screen is great idea, other mini variants have tiny screens so the oppo n1 mini really shines from the rest.

I'm a bit confused about your comment. Did you mean the screen's resolution? Because they need to sacrifice the dimensions if they are to make a smaller version of the N1.
28. pavsidhu (Posts: 31; Member since: 20 May 2014)
I ment the screen size, not the dimentions. I just think because its a cheaper phone they don't need to sacrifice the size of the display
30. BaffledTruffle (Posts: 109; Member since: 07 Dec 2013)
Well, the whole purpose of the phone is to be a smaller variant of the original phone. It will certainly come cheaper as it has a smaller screen/body to manufacture. The only bad thing about minis is that they always compromise on specs e.g. the 720p display.
