Oppo Find X, the Chinese company’s flagship smartphone with almost 94 percent screen-to-body ratio, was launched last month in Paris, France. After the phone’s launch in China and India, the company is now gearing up to launch the Oppo Find X in the UK market.
According to the report, the smartphone will soon be available for purchase in Italy, Spain, France, and the Netherlands. While Oppo spokesperon has confirmed that the phone will land in the UK, no specific date for this has been revealed.
In the Europe, the phone’s pricing starts at €999 and goes all the way up to €1699 for the Find X Lamborghini Edition. While the standard model will be available in two colors — Blue and Red, the Lamborghini Edition comes in Black color.
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.
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 its camera as “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.
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 fuelled by a 3730mAh battery, which supports Oppo’s custom VOOC/SuperVOOC fast charging.
