CyanogenMod’s first flagship device, the Oppo N1 is now available for purchase, having released on Tuesday. The Oppo N1 is the first device to run a CyanogenMod system as its pre-installed operating system, a recent development since the custom ROM team commercialized in September and partnered with Chinese manufacturer Oppo.

The Oppo N1 is a high-end device that originally released with the manufacturer’s ColorOS software on top of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean; however, the Oppo N1: CyanogenMod Edition runs CM10.2, a customer iteration of Android 4.3. In addition, the CM 10.2 running on the Oppo N1 has received Google’s CTS and CDD approval, which will allow the device to run Google apps and access the Google Play Store natively.

To complete the CyanogenMod treatment for the Oppo N1, the ROM team has released the source code and factory images for device, meaning if users wanted, they could purchase the original Oppo N1 and turn it into a CyanogenMod Edition with the official software. This could be an option for many interested in this model of the Oppo N1, considering its release is limited.

Otherwise, both versions of the Oppo N1 are identical specs wise, featuring a 5.9-inch 1080p IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset, 16GB storage and 2GB of RAM, a rear touch panel, a rotating 13-megapixel camera and a 3600mAh battery. Connectivity for the Oppo N1 includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS; however, the device does not power LTE data.

The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is available online for $599.
