Back in December last year, Oppo announced the launch of a dual SIM smartphone – Oppo R1. Now, this handset has been officially launched in India for a price of Rs 26,990. The handset boasts a unique design featuring a gold rim at the sides and a ceramic back panel similar to the Oppo N1.
Elaborating on the specifications, Oppo R1 provides room to a 5 inch HD IPS capacitive touch screen display with a screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels and a pixel density of 294 ppi. This screen features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection to prevent scratches and damage.
A 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor powers the smartphone along with 1 GB of RAM that can deliver acceptable levels of multi-tasking. The imaging department is taken care of by the 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and BSI sensor along with a 5 MP front-facer for video calling that has a 80 degree wide-angle lens.

It was also claimed that the Find 7a smartphone will be launched sometime in mid-2014. Following this announcement, Oppo has released the R1 and also slashed the price of N1 in the country from Rs 39,990 to Rs 37,990.
