Redmi 1S+808 Samarth, 10 Jan 2015The pasted text from OPPO shows three things:-
1. Oppo is probably waiting for the product ... moreIt's NOT like you have to ACTUALLY visit China*** to check out the phone (***Oppo are USAn)
SURPRISE you're actually posting in GSMarena so can check
Sometimes I see great posts or replies to great posts which are really banal, or just PLANE stupid posts....
Here'a clue if you don't know what you are talking about or too lazy to do research.. just read the article and let the grown ups speak http://www.gsmarena.com/oppo_n1-pictures-5724.php
This exact rotating camera design was on many laptops in the mid 2000s. Maybe Oppo should read up on prior art.
Local Brand MITO already got away with it since Oppo's launch of N1.
Here is a peak at the device:
people are defending Polaroid because they think it is a American brand. The phone has a MediaTek chip set. Most likely it is a Chinese made phone.
It's funny how a lot of commentors here jumps on and bashes any Chinese phone that looks somewhat similar to any well known smartphone. But when it is the other way around, and it is so obvious in this case, people are defending the copycat and bashing OPPO.
well, if it's really polaroid phone in the image then they should be ashamed for 100% design rip-off from a chinese brand.
My old Nokia N90 had also a rotating camera. I loved that phone really much!

opps....I thought this was Oppo! This will be the first in history that a western company copying eastern design!??? Nah..it just looked similar...
It's funny that someone in China, where patent lawlessness is huge, wants to fight for it's own :)
Never thoughtethe days American company copying China company products would come so soon...lol
Come on Polaroid at least made some differences, this is total ripped off.
I had Motorola phone with rotating camera once, it's been a while ago but that's true. You cant do anything about design. Maybe size of rotating part cant be any smaller because of sensor or something. T
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2015first rotating camera was on a 3 network phone (in the uk)
and really a phone designed for t... moreiPhones have been getting away with no expandable memory on their phones for years. And they market the hell out of their raggedy 8 megapixel cameras.
I would LOVE to see the Chinese try to sue someone for patent infringement. Their whole economy is based on wholesale, gleeful patent stealing.
