I had gotten this phone, it came "unlocked" no correctly, a lot of malware and annoying popups even after factory reset... and it's incorrectly listed specs...
I had the Samsung V200 (http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_v200-417.php) 13 years ago and it had a rotating camera. I think Oppo would have a hard time enforcing patents due to prior art.
I loved that phone - was my first one with a colour screen.
Those apparently look same, but rotating camera feature can't be Oppo's only. There's has been lot of those kinds in phone market already.
A Chinese company is considering suing another Chinese company over copying?... SERIOUSLY?!?!?
Trying to patent a rotating camera would be like trying to patent rectangles.
However if the entire phone is basically a rip off that's different.
'Polaroid' are a joke. The once innovative brand has been exploited and tarnished.
In China, these companies don't value patents and because of that, these companies keep on copying the big players. Oppo, a chinese company, shouldn't have the right to sue any company.
It's not about the rotating camera as idea, but the whole design of the phone is the same...
This whole sue this , sue that is just bad. So because they had a rotating camera phone? No other phone should have one? The first phone manufacturer who put on primary and secundary camera should also sue all other phone manufacturers for copying that.

AnonD-285034, 10 Jan 2015samsung x600 released rotating camera in 2003!!!Samsung also has right to ......... Lol, hard to argue against that. I really can't see any patent of OPPO holding with such a phone predating it.
One of my LG phones from years ago, used by three when they first came out had a rotating camera, this isn't anything new.

Just look at the images in this article:
You can easily see that these two phones are more similar to each other than they are to most other phone. However, the Oppo N1 was released in 2013, while this phone is being showcased at CES 2015.

AnonD-80331, 10 Jan 2015I first experienced that rotating camera on a phone with my sony ericsson z800 way back year 2... moreThere was also the LG CU500V with a rotating camera as well as the Sony Ericsson V800.
Oppo don't have any claims on this design. The rest of the phone looks like any samsung / lg / nexus device as much as the N1...
