OPPO Find X first look: A Samsung Galaxy S9 on steroids

Share

The first thing that jumps out when you look at the OPPO Find X is that most of the real estate on the front is occupied by that extra-tall, curved OLED screen that would fit in well in a Samsung catalog. As for the performance, the flagship comes powered by the top tier Snapdragon 845 chipset backed by an Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM.

After vivo introduced their NEX flagship smartphone, OPPO is stepping up with their own notchless all-screen smartphone that's named the Find X. After a few companies like Vivo and a lesser known Doogee started experimenting with sliding formats, it became evident that the fastest way to a bezel-free phone would be to go for the hide+slide technique... and that's what Oppo (the parent company of Oneplus) is doing with its Find X.

The invite has a tagline that reads, "Find what you have been looking for until now", and while that doesn't give out any clues, we do expect the Find X to launch on July 12 in India. Some slight variations in price are also possible.

The latter's election to the council was approved "even as mass graves were being discovered" on its territory, she said. The US UN envoy Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are set make the announcement later on Tuesday.

Even though the Oppo Find X seems innovative, getting used to a motorised panel in a phone will take a lot of time. On the camera app is opened, both the single front camera and dual rear cameras will be sliding out. After all, the phone hasn't launched yet, and we're supposed to still be in the dark with regard to its design and specs. O-Face builds a face map projecting 15,000 light points on the face with the map stored in their Trusted Execution Environment for security and uses a "3D Structured Light module" which includes flood illuminator and IR Camera to let you unlock your phone even in low-light. Instead, the Find X uses 3D facial scanning (similar in concept to the iPhone X's Face ID system) that is mounted next to the selfie camera. It will also automatically retract when you exit the app.

Oppo Find X will make its global debut on June 19. Users have to visit Oppo's official website to catch the live launch event.

The device could come in two storage options - a 256GB base version and a more premium 512GB version.

The Oppo Find X price is €999 (around £870, $1,100, AU$1,500) for the 256GB model.

One thing that makes this phone especially interesting is the fact that it's coming to North America, though date of availability and pricing has not been announced. But at least Oppo did not promise us a bezelless smartphone.

"The Find X will be available to order in China starting today, and it should cost less than other comparably equipped Android smartphones", says The Verge report.
