Oppo's stylish R1C smartphone will be released globally as the R1x
Back in January, Oppo announced a new mid-range smartphone called R1C, and released it in China for around $400. Now, the company is getting ready to launch the handset worldwide, renaming it to Oppo R1x.

New name aside, the Oppo R1x won't be different from the device that's already available in China. It's got the same stylish sapphire glass back plate (reminiscent of HTC's Windows Mobile-based Touch Diamond from 2008), and the same 6.85mm-thin body.

Powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, the R1x sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and runs Oppo's Color OS 2.0.1 (based on Android KitKat). Other features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2420 mAh battery.

The R1x will be sold globally starting mid to late April, most probably via Oppo's own online store, OppoStyle.com. The handset's price hasn't been announced, but it should match the price of the R1C (~$400). Interested?
