Oppo has already declared that it will be the first smartphone manufacturer to officially support CyanogenMod when it releases CM-flavored versions of the Oppo N1 next month. Cyanogen Mod will also find its way into a new powerful phone being developed by a former Oppo executive.
Pete Lau today announced that he has resigned as Oppo's Vice President, and Engadget has learned that it's because Lau is starting a new venture to build "a perfect Android flagship device." Nothing is known about the device except for two things: it will have a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and it will run CyanogenMod.
Cyanogen founder Steve Kondik revealed last week that CyanogenMod was partnering with Lau to build a smartphone that possesses top of the line software and "highest quality hardware available." The Oppo N1 will be the first phone to official support Kondik's new CyanogenMod venture, but other devices will follow based on recent developments.source: Google+ (Pete Lau), via: Engadget
