Oppo recently lanunched its flagship smartphone Oppo Find X at a launch event in Paris, which was followed by a launch of the smartphone in the company’s home market. Now, Oppo has revealed that the Oppo Find X will be launched in India on 12th July.
Announcing the same, Oppo tweeted “Excitement is now tantamount to perfection for the upcoming India Launch of #OPPOFindX! Catch the live streaming on July 12, 2018. Till then, wait & explore to #FindMore.”
While the company said that the launch event will be live streamed on 12th July, it has not revealed at what time the event will start. Earlier, the company had sent out media invites for the July 12 launch event in India, but had not revealed the device to be launched.
The Oppo Find X comes with a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ OLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display dominates the front side of the phone and it is touted as the world’s first smartphone to come with a screen-to-body-ratio of 93.8 percent.
The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. The smartphone doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, instead, it comes with O-Face (3D face unlock) which OPPO says has a failure rate of 1/1,000,000 compared to that of a fingerprint scanner which is 1/50,000.
Unlike the Vivo NEX that features a pop-out front-facing camera, the Find X comes with a large automatic sliding mechanism the width of the phone. When this part of the phone slides out, it not only reveals the front camera and 3D face scanning sensors for unlocking the phone, it also reveals the dual rear cameras and LED flash. OPPO has termed it “Stealth 3D cameras”. According to the company, the slide-out mechanism pops out in just 0.5 seconds.
The front-facing camera sensor is of 25MP for taking selfies. It comes with multiple 3D portrait lighting features and Omoji, which is OPPO’s own take on the iPhone X’s emojis. For the photography, the smartphone comes equipped with a dual camera setup that consists of a 16MP + 20MP sensors on the back with OIS and AI features.
The device runs on ColorOS 5.1 AI Smart custom UI based on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. The company says that the OS will learn usage habits, preload common applications, and make the app start faster. It also features a smartphone voice assistant. The device is backed by a 3730mAh battery, which supports Oppo’s custom VOOC charging technology which some variants come with SuperVOOC technology.
It is not yet clear if the company will launch the Lamborghini Edition of the Oppo Find X in India or not. To know which variants makes it to India and the pricing as well as availability details, we’ll have to wait for the official announcement on 12th July.
