Details of the OPPO Find X revealed

Share

According to OPPO, the Find X is the "world's first panoramic designed phone", combining "two seamless pieces of glass with the front screen featuring a gorgeous panoramic view". The front is all display, with a slight Galaxy S9-like curve around the side edges. OPPO is instead betting big on facial-recognition; there's a small 3D scanner baked into the front-facing camera that starts working as soon as the tray begins to rise, authenticating you before it's even finished emerging.The camera setup itself is made up of three sensors: one on the front (25-megapixel) and two on the rear (20-megapixel + 16-megapixel).

The OPPO Find X will retail for €999 when it hits the shelves in Europe.

As we have been expecting for sometime now, Oppo has today launched its latest flagship smartphone. The smartphone is expected to be backed by a 3645mAh battery with support for VOOC fast charging.

Flagship smartphones are incredibly thin these days and to have a sliding component that houses both front and rear cameras is rather impressive. To mimic what Apple offers with the iPhone X, the Find X (apart from the name) also ditches the traditional fingerprint sensor. The Find X achieves this by taking forward things that Vivo started with its recently launched X21, and adding all sorts of insane to it, down to the T. The Find X, to begin with, has a whopping 92.25 per cent screen-to-body ratio. Users have to visit Oppo's official website to catch the live launch event.

The phone's claim to fame is a 6.4-inch 1080p OLED display with a 92.26% screen-to-body ratio, making this the nearly bezel-free phone we have all been looking forward to.

Internally the phone is, like the leaks suggested, using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and has 256GB of on-board storage. But beware, it's likely to have a variety of bugs. The Find X is going on sale in China from today, and should make its way to other Asian markets shortly. If you're in the latter group, you'll be glad to know this fad was skipped.

However, its lofty price tag is a little harder to justify when you consider the screen is "only" full HD and there's no wireless charging, stereo speakers or even a headphone jack. Frankly, we're not surprised, given that OPPO is no stranger to taking an unorthodox approach to smartphone camera systems.

The cameras are kept covered and are revealed only when needed.

Spec-wise, OPPO has equipped the Find X with a 6.4-inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution.
