After a long wait that at a point was looking to be an endless one, OPPO finally announced the launch of the Find X smartphone. The device turned out to be worth the wait except that it comes with a steep price that might make it unaffordable for many. That notwithstanding, the design and innovation coupled with the powerful specs hardware make the device worth having. We bring you the unboxing/hands-on pictures of the OPPO Find X.
The Find X features an unprecedented 93.8% screen ratio and equally features a standout innovative dual-rail periscope structure with a full hidden 3D camera. The dual-rail periscope hides many components such as 3D-structured optical components, front-facing cameras, receivers, and rear dual cameras. This design also ensures the integrity of the overall screen by avoiding having to create a notch at the top to house the components. The design also ensures the top bezel is as thin as those on the sides. With this, we are gradually edging towards a full bezel-less smartphone and it won’t be surprising if OPPO or Vivo is among the first OEM to unveil that.
OPPO Find X comes with a Type C port that is used for charging as well as data transfer and for connecting a headset. There is no 3.5mm audio port on the device but there is a Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter in the box. The device is also bundled with a USB Type-C earphone.
As far as the specs go, the flagship model packs a 6.42-inch fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) AMOLED display as well as 19.5:9 aspect ratio. There is a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection atop the display while the phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 845 processor. The processor is paired with 8GB of RAM and it ships with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with OPPO’s ColorOS 5.1 skin. There is a 125GB storage variant as well as a 256GB variant. The Find X is quite pricey, starting at 4,999 Yuan (approx. $756). Find more unboxing pictures of the device from down below.
