The Oppo Find X features pop-up front and rear cameras

Adjust Comment Print

With the new Find X, Oppo is the second device maker to avoid the notch with a pop-up camera. It's similar to what Vivo has done with its Nex phone but in Oppo's case, it's not just a tiny pop-up module for housing just the front camera. The handset will be going on sale in China starting today, and will be launched in India on July 12th.

One of the most anticipated smartphones in the recent times has been the Find X, which has been part of numerous leaks and reports. Viewers can watch the live stream event below. The front of the device houses a 25MP selfie camera and comes with beautification mode and 3D emoji support.

The front of the phone will be fully dominated by the display, while the rear side of the phone will also be covered by glass, which could pave the way for wireless charging. The smartphone features a 6.4-inch OLED HD+ display with 1080x2340 pixel resolution.

The handset offers 8GB of RAM and comes in two storage variants - 256GB and 512GB. Other features include a 3730mAh battery which can be charged via VOOC quick charging - basically the same fast charging feature called DASH charge in OnePlus phones. If it makes you feel any better, the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design with 512 GB storage had a €2,100 launch price so that makes this Find X sound affordable. But how does Oppo manage to account for the front-facing selfie camera?

Winning start for Hendo and Trent as England defeat Tunisia
England begins their 2018 FIFA World Cup run today against Tunisia as the third and final soccer game on today's schedule. I think England rolls to an easy tournament opening win on Monday, so I'll back the Three Lions with a -1.5 handicap.

Since Lamborghini is often associated with speed, OPPO is finally introducing its Super VOOC charging technology on this special edition premium device. Under the hood, you'll find flagship-level components for 2018, like a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of onboard storage, and a large 3,730mAh fast-charging battery. It's hidden when the phone is off or the camera app is closed, and when you turn on the Find X, the top section of the phone pops up to reveal a 25-megapixel front-facing camera, complete with a 3D facial scanning system. But there is a lot more to the Find X than meets the eye.

Is Find X the phone you've been waiting for? The Find X is also eligible for Android P Beta. The phone doesn't feature a headphone jack and will instead use the USB Type-C port for audio when plugging in headphones. Or cameras. That's right, the Find X does not ship with conventional cameras.

I've been looking forward to Android phones trying new things in design for a while now, so I'm glad to see Oppo making a bold move in that direction - and away from aping whatever compromises Apple makes with its products. 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. Oppo is calling them "Bordeaux Red" and "Glacier Blue", and saying they shimmer like a "precious gemstone".
