Oppo has started sending out media invites for an event in India on July 12. While the invite doesn’t say which smartphone the company intends to launch, the invite reads “find what you have have been looking for until now,” hinting that the phone in question could be the Oppo Find X.
The global launch of the Oppo Find X took place in Paris, France yesterday, i.e. 19th June. The OPPO Find X comes in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue colors, which offer gradient effect. It is priced at 999 Euros (approximately $1,155) and will be available for purchase starting from August.
The Oppo Find X features a 6.42-inch Full HD+ AMOLED Panoramic Arc Screen with 19:5:9 aspect ratio and a 93.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship chipset — Snapdragon 845 along with 8GB of RAM.
It has a motorized sliding dual rear cameras with a 16-megapixel primary and a 20-megapixel secondary camera set up with LED flash, OIS, AI portraits and AI Scene Recognition technology that can identify 800 scenes. The company says that the sliding mechanism has been tested over 300,000 times for durability.
The phone has 3D face unlock, which the company calls O-Face Recognition. It uses 3D Structured Light Technology which scans 15,000 facial points and is claimed to be 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone.
On the front side, there’s a 25-megapixel camera with AI that intelligently analyzes features such as face, nose, and eyes, etc. to naturally personalize selfies. The 3D lighting technique offers artistic portraits. There is also 3D Omoji, which is similar to Apple’s Animoji that captures facial expressions in real time to be presented in a fun way.
The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with the company’s own ColorOS 5.1 custom interface on top. The company has also said that support for Android P beta is also coming soon for the smartphone. The device drives power from a 3,730mAh battery which supports VOOC flash charge fast charging technology that promises 2 hours of talk time with 5 minutes of charge.
While Oppo has scheduled a launch event in India on July 12 for launching Oppo Find X, the company has scheduled an event in China to launch the smartphone on 29th June.
Along with the Oppo Find X, the company also launched the Limited Lamborghini Edition that comes with carbon fiber back, 512GB storage and VOOC Super Flash charge with 35-minute 0 to 100% charging. However, it’s not known if the phone will make its way to other regions.
