Oppo N1 Mini, which made its debut in June sports a 5.0-inch HD (1280x720p) IPS LCD screen and runs on Android OS (with Oppo's custom ColorOS UI), 1.6GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 305 graphics engine, 16GB inbuilt memory and a 2,140 mAh battery.

Like its bigger sibling Oppo N1, it too boasts the rotating 13.0-megapixel camera on top, thus eliminating the need for a second camera on the front and also enabling users to have full HD-quality video chat. The camera features HDR, F2.0 aperture and can snap 24.0-megapixel quality picture via company's 'Super Zoom' technology.

Last month, the company slashed the price of 5.9-inch Oppo N1 to ₹32,990 from ₹37,990 (MRP) in India (view report, here), so considering the specifications of the new compact variant – N1 Mini is expected to be priced around ₹25,000-₹28,000.

Once released, the new Oppo N1 Mini will be competing with Motorola's Moto X, Gionee Elife 7 Mini, Xiaomi Mi3 and domestic branded Octa-core based devices such Canvas Knight, Intex Aqua Octa and others.
