After teasing the public for a good while, the Chinese smartphone maker, Oppo, has unveiled their latest flagship smartphone in their long-lost Find-series, the Oppo Find X, today, at an event at The Louvre Museum, Paris. With the launch of Find X, Oppo has revived the dead Find series, that was once known as for its innovative design and flagship performance. All the notch haters can rejoice, as the phone doesn’t come with a notch and instead comes with a motorized tray in which all the cameras and sensors are packed.
Oppo Find X
The Oppo Find X comes with a 6.4-inch FullHD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. The screen has 93.8% screen-to-body ratio and a maximum brightness of 430 nits. It has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, which Oppo likes to call the Panoramic Arc View.
Processor, RAM & Storage
Powering the flagship is the Snapdragon 845 chipset, while the Adreno 630 handles the graphics. It comes with up to 8 GB RAM and up to 256 GB internal storage. The phone runs on Color OS 5.1 AI intuitive system based on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
Unlike the recently launched Vivo NEX S that uses a motorized pop-up mechanism only for the selfie camera, the Oppo Find X, takes it to another level with motorized slide out tray. The tray moves the entire top frame up revealing the cameras on both the rear and the front. As for the cameras themselves, the dual rear cameras use a 16 MP and a 20 MP setup. To the front, the phone greets you with a whopping 25 MP selfie snapper that has a f/2.0 aperture.
Battery and Connectivity
The Find X packs in a massive 3730 mAh battery that can be topped up quickly with the supplied VOOC charger. The phone has support for 4G VoLTE, GPS, aGPS, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, NFC Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2×2 MIMO. The phone comes with a USB Type C port but does skip the beloved 3.5 mm audio jack.
The phone lacks a fingerprint scanner but does come with face unlock, which has 3D face scanning for secure locking. As it has a moving camera, users need to turn on the phone and swipe up on the screen, which in-turn triggers the camera mechanism to slide out, scan your face and slide back in, once unlocked. Oppo claims the motorized tray can slide out within 0.5 secs.
Omojis is Oppo’s take on Animated emojis, which uses the 3D face scanning that has up to 15,000 facial dot recognition. Those 15,000 points are used to create Omojis, that imitates and recreates the animated character’s expression by analyzing the user’s expressions.
Pricing and Availability of Oppo Find X
The Oppo Find X comes in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue colors. The pricing of the Find X is set at EUR 999 (INR 78,774) for the 256 GB variant. The phone will launch first in France, Italy, Netherlands and Spain, in August and will launch in the US, later this year.
Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition
Additionally, Oppo has partnered with Lamborghini to create a special Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition. The phone’s back has a carbon fibre like coating underneath glass, similar to the Kevlar coating found on the OnePlus 6 Avenger’s Edition. It comes with SuperVOOC flash charge technology that charges the phone at a whopping 50W (10V 5A) rate, allowing the 3400 mAh battery underneath to top-up from 0-100%, in just 35 mins. The back has a Lamborghini logo engraved onto it, which is said to be developed using a special processing technique to create a 3D effect, making the logo appear raised from the body.
Pricing and Availability of Find X Lamborghini Edition
The Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition is priced at EUR 1699 (INR 1,33,850).
