Oppo’s Find X takes a radical approach to killing the notch

Oppo’s Find X takes a radical approach to killing the notch”

Thankfully that mechanism is a quick one, with Oppo saying that the cameras will pop up in just 0.5 seconds. Instead, users have to use the face unlock feature or enter into the camera app, when an entire offset section of the device is servo-fed up to visibility, showing off the two 16- and 20-megapixel cameras at the back and a 25-megapixel camera with a three-dimensional spatial sensor in front. That bit of technology is hosted in a motorized portion on the phone that pops up when the camera is activated. Oppo's iconography and UI is astonishingly similar to what you'd get on an iPhone X in many places. Unfortunately, pricing is unavailable at this point but OPPO did state that it will be priced less than some of the other top-end devices now out on the market. Not to be outdone on the processor side of things the Find X comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, complete with 8GB of RAM for the memory and multiple variations for the storage options all the way up to 256GB. It has a dual SIM system, and is compatible with most 4G networks all over the world. Think of it as a mix between an iPhone and a Samsung flagship phone. It certainly doesn't look like stock Android, but you can run a launcher if that bothers you. No headphone jack on this one, I'm afraid, and wireless charging is also absent. Frankly, we're not surprised, given that OPPO is no stranger to taking an unorthodox approach to smartphone camera systems. Some of you might already be raising an eyebrow, but OPPO states that the mechanism is quite durable, tested in its labs and rated for at least 300,000 actuations. Close the camera app and the whole assembly motors back into the phone's chassis. Innovative it surely is, but we hope it is built to last. That's around 30 percent of the handset's 3730mAh battery capacity - so, using that as a basis for our calculations, a full charge should take just over an hour.

"OPPO's relentless efforts in creating smartphones that push the boundaries led to the creation of the Find Series". OPPO has included AI in their cameras with the ability to recognise 21 independent scenes, 800 scene combinations, and implement special optimisations for all of them. The special edition comes with engraved logo and offers 512GB of RAM and Super VOOC fast charging. That is really fast charging.

The Find X will cost £999 (roughly $1,150) in Europe and will ship in August across the continent; it isn't clear when it'll arrive in North America, and if it'll come to other regions.

All this is nice, if only it wasn't heck expensive.

The Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition is a much premium offering, launched with a much higher price tag of 1,699 Euros (approximately Rs 1,33,000). The company will also be launching the flagship phone with a mobile carrier, giving the possibility that the OPPO Find X will be much cheaper to get in the U.S. market.
