‘The guy who fired Steve Jobs’ is back with an Oppo N1 clone

Obi Mobile. Does the name ring a bell in your ear? If it doesn’t, that should be normal as it hardly does so on our part. But wait, while the name might not be so popular, it’s the founder that’s responsible for all the spotlight the company is getting, after all, they are just like any other Chinese OEM selling phones in Asia.

John Sculley fired Jobs from the company he founded in 1985 after series of disagreements.

Well, Obi Mobile is owned by the guy who is famously known for firing Steve Jobs from Apple back in the 90’s, but then, the website is not Wikipedia, lets keep to the phones and leave the personalities out of this.

So, back to business. Obi Falcon S451 is just a shameless clone of Oppo’s N1 smartphone. The former goes with the same rotary camera the N1 is known for, and the design is awfully similar and etcetera.

The Falcon S451 comes with a 4.5″ qHD display, a rather dull, outdated 1.3GHz dual core MT6572 CPU from MediaTek, 1GB of RAM, 4GB storage and 2200mAh battery.

For the turnable camera, the clone uses an 8MP camera — the N1 had a 13MP. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (oh, Android) is what powers the clone device as we’ll look on to see how much Obi will ask for this piece of ‘wonderful’ technology.
