Oppo has finally launched its new bezel-less smartphone – Oppo Find X, at an event in Paris yesterday. The smartphone is priced at 999 Euros which is approx. Rs 79,000. The Oppo Find X comes in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue colours and will be available starting from August.
Oppo Find X comes with a whopping 93.8 percent screen-to-body ratio which is slightly higher than the one on the recently announced Vivo NEX which comes with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24-percent.
Oppo has opted for the pop-up camera mechanism which we first saw with the Vivo Apex concept at MWC 2018 in Barcelona and followed by the Vivo NEX. The mechanism is motorized and can pop up in half a second to open the camera. As per Oppo, the sliding mechanism was tested to 300,000 slides the average person unlocks their phone 100-150 times a day.
Oppo Find X does not come with a fingerprint scanner. Rather it features facial recognition for unlocking the phone. For face unlock, the pop-up camera comes out, recognise the user, unlock the phone, then slide back in. Oppo says this is 20 times more secure than using a fingerprint sensor for a device unlock.
Oppo Find X comes with a 6.42-inches AMOLED Full HD+ display with 2340 x 1080 resolution and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It is powered by 2.5GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The Oppo Find X runs Color OS 5.1 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, however, the company has announced that support for Android P beta will be coming soon.
The smartphone features a 3,730 mAh battery with VOOC flash charge fast charging promising 2 hours of talk time with 5 minutes of charge. For the camera department, the device sports a dual rear camera setup with 16-megapixel primary sensor with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization, Phase Detection Autofocus, Dual-Tone LED flash and 20-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. For the front, it features a 25-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling. The front camera comes with A.I. capabilities to automatically add beautification effects to your selfies. There is also support for 3D emojis similar to iPhone X ones.
