Will we see Oppo in court, suing over the rotating camera on the Polaroid Selfie?
Polaroid introduced a new smartphone at CES and the device might end up being displayed in a courtroom before it gets to retail channels. Here's why. The Polaroid Selfie uses a rotating 13MP camera that looks remarkably similar to the rotating 13MP camera on the Oppo N1. The problem for Polaroid lies in the fact that Oppo has a patent on the design and has not licensed it to Polaroid or any manufacturer. We don't have a law degree, and we don't portray an attorney on television, but it would seem that Polaroid has stepped on some legal toes here.

The Polaroid Selfie features a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. An octa-core CPU (most like from MediaTek) powers the device. 2GB of RAM is on board with 16GB of native storage included. Unfortunately, if you need more storage, you're out of luck since there is no micro SD slot on board.

Besides the Selfie, Polaroid also revealed some other smartphone models ranging from 3.5-inch to 5.5-inch models. Unlike the Selfie, these are all powered by quad-core processors and feature Android 4.4 on board. Polaroid did not release much information about these phones

The Polaroid Selfie is expected to launch in the U.S. and Canada this Spring. That is, unless a court order prevents this from happening. Oppo's statement on the matter says that it "reserves the right to take further legal action." Check out the entire statement from Oppo, printed below.
