I would LOVE to see the Chinese try to sue someone for patent infringement. Their whole economy is based on wholesale, gleeful patent stealing.

I first experienced that rotating camera on a phone with my sony ericsson z800 way back year 2005....

This is just the Oppo N1 with Polariod software and Android whatever it is. It DOES NOT look but IT IS. And then they call it the Polaroid something
its a copycat phone and nobody should buy a third rated phone like that plus its specs are below decent and only has 16 gb memory with no expandable
Hopefully Polaroid isn't just rebranding iNew devices.. The cameras modules would be pathetic..
Pedram.rayan, 10 Jan 2015I don't agree that oppo is the "inventor" of rotating camera phone. Do a little sear... moreIf you actually looked at the picture it's not about who invented a rotating camera but that Polaroid copied the Oppo N1 phone exactly.
Well im not fan of "legal issues" about design, because design is to complicated to understand for lawyers, and if we try enough we could sue Every phone from 90' for having external antenna... or sue cows because they are black & white like zebras...
But you need to admit that its way similar design than first galaxy s vs iPhone xD

This white Polaroid phone with a swiveled camera does look strikingly similar to the Oppo N1, but then again so do all other shiny black rectangular phones when put against each other.
Similar doesn't mean the same, thus it remains to be seen if there is an infringement at all.
I don't agree that oppo is the "inventor" of rotating camera phone. Do a little search for Samsung D820 .this slide basic phone featured such camera years ago

and really a phone designed for taking photos that doesnt have expandable memory thats just stoooopid
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2015First and ever, Western company copies Chinese design.
Win!I have tried Oppo N1 and this doesnt seem to use the same mechanism, this one reminds me much more of a swiveling camera i have encountered on Acer laptop, looong ago.
The Oppo N1 cam feels like it is swiveled in a wrong axis, not well made.
Oppo isn't the 1st.
And I thought rotating cameras were implemented on a phone first by Nokia way back in 2007.
oh come on am i the only one that knows that they even copied the software (color os) too? look at the call and the message icons
