5.9-inch Oppo N1 may hit the West by the end of November

The giant 5.9-inch Oppo N1 beast of a smartphone has managed to draw attention left and right since its introduction a month ago, in spite of its humble beginnings. Featuring a seemingly awesome swiveling 13-megapixel snapper that rotates 206 degrees, along with a back touch panel and some sexy looks, it isn't exactly hard to see why that is.

What's even more, unlike most any other Chinese brand, Oppo has been dedicated to the Western markets from its conception, and if this latest snippet of information is to be trusted, the N1 will be starting its trek sometime in the latter part of November. This particular piece of information comes from a presentation slide courtesy of the CyanogenMod team, which recently went commercial. The real interesting part comes from the fact that the Oppo N1 will be the first smartphone with the option of shipping with CyanogenMod's custom Android ROM, not to mention that a special, limited CM version of the phablet is also expected at some point. And while this may surprise you, Chinese manufacturers are actually very well known for providing a range of options to their customers as far as software is concerned – there's often an option to go stock or pick a modified Android ROM.

If you're feeling truly excited about the Oppo N1, perhaps you should consider applying for the company's pioneer program. If you make it into the winning quota of ten people, you'll be able to purchase the premium phablet for just $99.

Just signed up for the pioneer program. Hopefully my luck continues, as I got a CR-48 from Google for free. *crosses fingers
