As we reported earlier, after launching its flagship smartphone in Europe and China, Oppo has now launched the Oppo Find X in India. The smartphone, which packs 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, is priced at Rs. 59,990, which roughly converts to $875.
The smartphone will be available in two color options — Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue and will go on sale in India from 3rd August through online retailer Flipkart with pre-order starting from July 25. It will also be available for purchase from offline stores across the nation.
While only the 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage variant is launched in India, Oppo has announced that the Lamborghini Edition will soon make its way to India.
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 Oppo Find X comes with a motorised sliding mechanism, which equips both — front as well as rear cameras. 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”.
The 3D face unlock feature, which Oppo calls O-Face Recognition, uses 3D Structured Light Technology which scans 15,000 facial points. The company claims that it is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone.
According to the company, the slide-out mechanism pops out in just 0.5 seconds. The company says that the sliding mechanism has been tested over 300,000 times for durability. Oppo is promoting the motorised camera as a major breakthrough for the smartphone industry.
For the photography, the smartphone comes equipped with a dual camera setup that consists of a 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel sensors on the back with OIS and AI features. The front-facing camera sensor is of 25-megapixel 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.
The Oppo Find X 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 fast charging technology.
