Oppo R1C is unveiled; phone will be released on January 20th priced at $403
As expected, on Wednesday morning in China Oppo introduced the Oppo R1C, basically a refresh of the Oppo R1S. The device will start shipping at 10:00 am on January 20th, and is priced at the equivalent of $403 USD. There is a version of the device with a sapphire glass and the model features 4G connectivity as well as support for dual SIM cards.

The Oppo R1C offers a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 resolution display. A 64-bit octa-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon 615 CPU drives the handset, which includes 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. Those requiring more memory can employ the 128GB capacity microSD slot. The 13MP snapper on back uses the Sony IMX214 sensor, with an f/2.0 aperture for great low-light pictures. A 5MP "selfie" snapper adorns the front of the device. The 2420mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Color OS 2.0.1 runs over Android 4.4.

Stay with us as the flood of new handsets from China continues. Tomorrow, the eagerly awaited Xiaomi product announcement event should bring not one, but two new Android smartphones to the landscape. In the meantime, check out the new Oppo R1C by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!

I would have expected at least 1080p from a Chinese smartphone at that price...

For $400 I can buy still good last year models, like Z1 compact. Why would I buy this?

IDK but why Oppo is keeping high prices for their products. 1080p should have been included atleast for this price.

Stop whining and bend over it already! You're not buying it anyways.

So? Copy is copy. You probably can bend your phone, but you can't bend the fact. Now you stop crying and just admit it...
