Oppo N1 Mini Phone Specs, Features, and Review in Malaysia

Oppo N1 Mini Malaysia: Futuristic Designs with Today’s Functionality

Chinese brand Oppo is gaining traction in Malaysia as a reliable smartphone provider, offering affordable phones with a variety of top-notch features. Hence, Oppo phones are getting a huge following for the value they provide. Take the Oppo N1 Mini for example; do not get fooled by the "mini" term in its name because this compact device sports a powerful punch when it comes to features. Its key feature is a swivelling rear camera that provides more shooting angles compared to the conventional smartphone camera. Apart from this revolutionary feature, below are some other specs to look out for on the N1 Mini:

Design and Build Quality

In terms of design, the Oppo N1 Mini is identical to its larger sibling, the Oppo N1 except that it has a smaller build which makes it easier to hold in the hand. Despite sporting a "mini" tag, the phone is still considered relatively large as it is still bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. The phone's body is made entirely out of plastic but Oppo has managed to craft it to look and feel expensive. Measuring 9mm thick and weighing 150 grams, it is certainly not thinnest or the lightest device out there. However, its heft and curved back make the phone more comfortable to hold. Overall, Oppo has also done a good job to ensure that the phone retains a manageable size despite sporting a 5-inch display.


Speaking of its display, the Oppo Mini 1's 5-inch LCD display comes with a 1,280x720p resolution which translates to sharp visual quality and vibrant colour reproduction that is not oversaturated. Hence, you should have no problems using it for everyday tasks such as browsing the Internet, replying to emails, and watching videos. The viewing angles are good, which means that you can view the screen from multiple angles without any reduction in the visual quality. Brightness levels are also sufficient for the phone to be used outdoors without any visibility issues, making the phone suitable for individuals who are always out and about.

Hardware and Performance

In charge of the N1 Mini's performance is a 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor that is supported by an Adreno 305 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Thanks to the reliable Snapdragon 400 chipset, the device's performance is quite smooth-sailing which makes the phone capable of handling most of the tasks assigned to it with ease. Apps open and close quickly, switching between apps was a breeze, and the phone can take on multiple apps simultaneously without any signs of lag. The only downside is that the phone only has 16GB of internal storage with no options to expand it further, hence the phone will not be that suitable for users who like to load their phones with apps and games.


Understandably, one of the Oppo N1 Mini's most unique feature is its swivel camera. This means that you are getting a 13MP primary shooter that doubles as the front-facing camera as well. Due to the camera's ability to function as both the front and rear shooter, the phone will not come with a dedicated front-facing unit. However, this is nothing to be concerned about since you can use the camera to take high-quality selfies as well.

Battery Life

Under its hood, the Oppo N1 Mini packs a 2,140mAh battery, which might be a little small by current standards. However, you will still be able to get through a full day with moderate use while performing regular tasks like sending texts, checking your social media accounts, and playing some games.
