A few years back, little did we know that OPPO would turn out to be such a big smartphone company. Very few knew of its existence and the company’s phones were popular mainly in China. Fast forward to 2018 and OPPO is one of the biggest smartphone companies in the industry! The company has been very smart in its strategies and its rise to glory is nothing short of impressive.
All this while, OPPO has focused on mid-rangers. This focus has helped it grow pretty quickly but everyone knows that the real money and respect is in the flagship market. For this purpose, OPPO is bringing back the Find series from the ashes. What was once thought to be dead is alive again and the OPPO Find X is here to lead the company’s flagship series. The timing of its launch couldn’t be more perfect — Vivo Nex just made its debut earlier this month and the Find series could directly compete with this new flagship from its rival brand.
OPPO Find X Specs
Here are the likely specs of the OPPO Find X according to its TENAA listing.
- 6.4-inch dual curved AMOLED 2360 x 1080p display
- 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a notch on top
- 156 x 74.2 x 9.6mm
- 186 grams
- SD845 AIE chipset
- 6GB/8GB RAM
- Android 8.1 + ColorOS 5.1
- 20MP+16MP f/2.0 Rear Dual Cameras
- 25MP f/2.0 Front Camera
- 3730mAh battery
Some of these specs are already confirmed via an earlier teaser. So we know for sure that there’s Snapdragon 845 inside with a variant featuring 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. Other specs mentioned above have been compiled from its TENAA listing and might change at launch.
Some of the specs are a bit confusing. For example, the thickness is mentioned as 9.6mm on TENAA. OPPO is not known to release such thick phones, so it remains to be seen if the OPPO Find X will really be a thick flagship. Another issue is about its display. The phone is said to feature a dual curved display according to a recent teaser, but there’s a leak that shows a notch up front as well. So, it may be possible that the OPPO Find X is the first smartphone with a dual curved display and a notch.
If this is really the case, the notch could be present for a very good reason — one possible explanation being 3D face recognition like Apple. Also, the screen to body ratio could go as high as 93.8% but we still haven’t got a confirmation about this specific ratio.
Expect a lot of high-end tech on the device, including the company’s Super VOOC fast charging that can charge a 2500mAh battery to 100% in 15 minutes, 5X lossless zoom (with a periscope like arrangement revealed last year), and in screen fingerprint sensor.
OPPO Find X Design
Like I mentioned above, we are not quite sure about the phone’s design. A full screen front (like the Vivo Nex) could be possible but we can’t be sure until we see the phone officially.
What could be really interesting on the Find X is its back design. There are two designs we have seen of the Find X’s back — one has a vertically arranged dual cameras and fancy looking back design with breathing light down below and there’s the other one which has a much more unique design featuring the cameras in an M shaped band at the back. The latter was actually seen in a leaked TV Ad on China’s CCTV.
OPPO Find X Launch Event
Pricing and availability details of the Find X is still unknown but we’ll get all these details tomorrow (June 19) at the official launch event at 8:45PM in Paris, France at The Louvre. Watch the live stream from here!
