Oppo's Find X ditches the notch in favour of sliding camera array

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

OPPO’s Find X brings an all-screen front and pop-up cameras, coming to India on July 12th

Because of the way the color runs through the body of the phones, the finish is slightly different depending on the angle at which you look at them.

Oppo has revived its Find series after four years and Find X is all about innovation in smartphone technology. 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. It comes with a 6.42-inch (1080x2340 pixels) full-HD+ AMOLED display with 18:5:9 aspect ratio, 93.8 percent screen to body ratio, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Open up the camera app, and switch to the front facing camera though, and an 8MP (f/2.0) will gracefully rise from the top of the handset.

Other manufacturers now opting for a notchless edge-to-edge display have relocated the speakers below the screen thanks to new sound-emitting display technology, however it is uncertain how Oppo has handled the change-up itself. It is powered by 2.5GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. We went from candybar phones to clamshells, to sliders, back to the candybar (with every smartphone following that framework), and then in the pursuit to have bezel-less displays, phones are revising the slider format to hide elements like the front-facing camera.

The OPPO Find X Lamborghini Edition comes with 512GB of storage and it will be priced at 1,699 Euro which is about RM7,881.

Surprise announcement from early this morning, the Find X from Oppo is coming to the US.

The Find X will be available from August. There's Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo's ColorOS custom skin on top which still functions and looks a lot like Apple's iOS. The Find X is a dual-SIM phone that's also globally compatible - I was able to use a T-Mobile SIM in the demo unit to grab an LTE signal in New York City.

Oppo is also launching their version of Apple's Animoji, with the OPPO Omoji.

It is the same with the standard Find X, but decked out in Lamborghini styling. During the launch event, the company says that the pop-up tests have been done to guarantee durability. Fast charging tech like VOOC might do the trick while we wait for the holy grail of battery charging: Fast, long-distance, wireless charging.

The Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X will also have an updated storage with a massive 512GB of on-board storage. It also carries Huawei-inspired AI-enhanced object and scene detection feature that tweaks camera settings automatically. Oppo claims that it can charge the 3,400mAh battery on the phone in just about 35 minutes.
