A few months ago, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo unveiled its flagship phone — Oppo Find X at a launch event in Paris. The phone then went on sale in various countries around the world, including India, the UK, Taiwan, and China. Now, the Oppo Find X is finally going on sale in France from today, for a price of 999 Euros (approximately $1,163).
In France, the phone is available through telecom operator Orange as well as through the Fnac Darty outlets. For those who purchase the device between 7th September and 4th October, Oppo Mobile France is bundling O-Free Wireless Headphones for free.
To remind you of the specifications, the Oppo Find X comes with a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and is touted as the world’s first smartphone to come with a screen-to-body-ratio of 93.8 percent. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 GPU along with 8GB RAM and 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 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.
The Oppo Find X comes with a motorized 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”.
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.
The phone 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.
Connectivity options on the device include Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 A2D LE, GPS with A-GPS/GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C 2.0 port. The device is fuelled by a 3730mAh battery, which supports Oppo’s custom VOOC/SuperVOOC fast charging, depending on the region.
