Oppo plans to release a midnight black model of its flagship Oppo N1 smartphone, if a leak from GizChina is to be believed.

There hasn't been an official announcement from Oppo discussing the colour option, but according to the China-based publication it will be released sometime in the near future. It looks like the same Oppo N1 we've come to know, including the spinning camera, but it simply packs a sleek new coat of black paint with a white accent running on the border.

The Oppo N1 was released in Europe and the US in December for £443. It features a 5.9-inch Full HD screen, 13-megapixel camera, and a touch sensitive rear. There's also a version that comes pre-loaded with custom CyanogenMod software.
