Chinese mobile company Oppo will initially only sell its mobiles through its own website, which presumably won’t be called the Oppo shop.
Oppo has announced four models that they’ll be selling locally; at first they’ll all only be for outright purchase and through Oppo’s website at www.oppomobile.com.au, which at the time of writing wasn’t live.
The four models comprise the Find 7 at the top of the range, the slightly lower spec Find 7a, the N1 mini and the budget line Neo 5. They’re all Android devices, although Oppo makes its own modifications to Android with what it dubs “Color OS”.

The N1 Mini's claim to fame is only having one camera, but putting it on a rotating hinge for the higher-quality selfie crowd.

According to Oppo’s Australian head of marketing Michael Tran, they anticipate rolling out firmware updates (they’re currently Android 4.3) “rapidly”, and that the forking of Color OS “shouldn’t introduce any app problems”.
