Oppo, the brand known for bringing selfie-focused smartphones, has launched its flagship model for the year, Oppo Find X, in Paris. That's why so many phones are shipping with screen notches lately. Other key highlights of the Oppo Find X include a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB of RAM, and 3D facial scanning. Further, the company is hosting a separate launch event in India on July 12 where Oppo is expected to announce the Find X for the Indian market.
What do you guys make of the OPPO Find X?
It said that the 3D structured light module in Find X can project 15,000 dots, building a precise and complete 3D module of a user's face, and then compares with the registered face of the owner to unlock. The 3D curved glass on the front and rear also makes the device look premium.
In fact, you're getting a full 6.42-inch panel running at 2,340 x 1,080 resolution. On the front the Oppo features a single camera sensor - a 25-megapixel camera with A.I. capabilities.
The back, meanwhile, gets dual cameras: one 16-megapixel f/2.0 sensor, the other a 20-megapixel f/2.2 sensor.
There's a sizable 3,730mAh battery sealed inside the Find X, and it features Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology allowing you to give it a quick blast before heading out the door, via the USB-C port. First Vivo and now OPPO have introduced a phone with the pop-up future.
From a distance, it's easy to mistake the OPPO Find X for the Samsung Galaxy S9, with its near-edge-to-edge screen and curvy body. To mimic what Apple offers with the iPhone X, the Find X (apart from the name) also ditches the traditional fingerprint sensor.
The latest Oppo offering runs on ColorOS 5.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo and supports dual-SIM slots (Nano+Nano).
Everyone is trying to do away with bezels on smartphones, but necessities like front-facing cameras get in the way.
OPPO also showcased another variant of the Find X at its gathering at the Louvre.
All that drama would be for naught if the Find X was packing sub-par cameras; happily, on paper at least, that's not the case. The rear-facing camera is also completely hidden when the handset is switched off or the camera application is closed.
It is interesting to point out that OPPO's decision to use 10V contradicts with its Super VOOC showcase in 2016. Or cameras. That's right, the Find X does not ship with conventional cameras. Unfortunately, pricing is unavailable at this point but OPPO did state that it will be priced less than some of the other top-end devices now out on the market. The Lamborghini edition of the Oppo Find X will cost buyers 1,699 Euros which roughly translates to Rs 1,33,913.
The good news for the U.S. market is that the OPPO Find X will be the first phones from the manufacturer to be released in the U.S. market.
