The Oppo N1 which will arrive with CyanogenMod 10.2 out of the box has recently passed Google’s compatibility test suite, meaning that it will officially be able to support Google’s Play Store and that Oppo N1 owners will be able to install apps of their choice.
This is the moment which marks the very first time that CyanogenMod has been certified by Google for a smartphone device. Oppo also shared that the smartphone which will run on CyanogenMod 10.2 will be made available starting December 24th, but it remains to be seen whether the price will still be $599 or more expensive now. But at least there is another addition to be considered other than the upcoming smartphones like the Nexus and Google Play Edition handsets, if you are in the market for a close stock Android experience.
Still, it is nice to see that enthusiasts will be able to finally enjoy Google Play the legit way instead of performing a sideloading process. Fans of CyanogenMod will be eagerly awaiting the release of these Google certified CyanogenMod Phones.
