The Find X is launched four year later since the last phone in the Find series. The smartphone ditches the top notch trend and instead brings one of the most innovative design which may make it the best looking smartphone of this year beating the likes of Vivo NEX and Lenovo Z5.
At the first look, the one thing to notice is that there are no cut-outs for the front as well as the back camera. The display stretches up to the top with no bezel. Similar to the Vivo NEX it has a pop up segment but it takes a level up. When you switch on the camera app or smartphone, a cleverly hidden middle section of the device motorizes up and reveals the front as well as the back camera.
This new design makes the screen-to-body ratio to 92.95%, which is greater than any notched or non-notched smartphone available currently. It will be available in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue color options and comes with a price tag of around 700 EUR (Rs 55,000 approx). It will be available for pre-order in China from today.
However, the smartphone doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor whether it is an under display or a standard one, and sorely relies on the Face recognition which means the top part will slide up everytime you unlock the phone. The Face recognition is based on a 3D facial recognition hardware like the Mi 8 and iPhone X and not software based. While Oppo claims it takes just 0.5 seconds to pop up we are not sure how it affects the battery performance.
As for the specs, the Oppo Find X features a 6.4 inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080p. Under the hood, it is powered by the top-of-the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. In the optics department, the device sports a dual camera setup at the back of 16MP + 20MP configuration while offering a 25MP front camera for selfies and video calling.
The Find X runs on company’s own Color OS built on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. It is backed by a 3,730 mAh battery which supports Oppo’s VOOC fast charging (and not Super VOOC as reported earlier, which is reserved to Lamborghini variant). It has dual SIM feature and is globally compatible.
The company claims this is because this is its first smartphone to launch in North America and Europe and is not limited to countries like China, India, Philippines, and other South Asian countries like before. And the phone is coming soon to India in July 12th!
There will also be a special edition Lamborghini variant, which will be coming with Oppo’s much hyped SuperVOOC fast charging, which can charge the phone from 0-100 in just 35 minutes!
