The OPPO Find X will be available in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands from August. It's similar to what Vivo has done with its Nex phone but in Oppo's case, it's not just a tiny pop-up module for housing just the front camera. It comes with up to 256Gb of storage, 8Gb of RAM, a 3730mAh battery, and it goes on sale in China today, with a global launch in the offing... and with that, do we finally say goodbye to the notch?
Without question, the OPPO Find X is the company's most attractive effort to date, an indication that OPPO has caught up with Apple and Samsung in the smartphone-design stakes. Viewers can watch the live stream event below.
Unlike, say, a Sidekick's flip-twist mechanism, though, or the slide of the venerable Nokia N95, Oppo opted to make the Find X's pop-out camera array motorized. As the name suggests, this variant has been made in collaboration with Lamborghini and also sports its logo on the rear panel.
The phone features a 6.4-inch display that's about as large as the Galaxy Note 9's rumored screen, and just slightly smaller than the upcoming iPhone X Plus's display. It is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC with Adreno 30 GPU. The 25MP selfie camera can capture 3D AI selfie using the data from O-Face and also includes 3D portrait lighting.
The Find X Lamborghini Edition comes with a 3,400mAh battery and it will take 220 minutes to charge on a standard 5V 1A brick, while a common 5V 2A charger takes 135 minutes. Now new information about the Oppo Find X points out that the phone will have a screen-to-body ratio above 90 percent.
We don't yet have U.S. specific pricing or availability, but that info should be coming soon. The front-facing camera also houses a 3D facial scanner for authentication. When you turn the Find X on and open the camera app, the entire top section of the phone motorizes up and reveals a 25-megapixel front-facing camera, 3D facial scanning system, and 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual rear camera. Also, the official Oppo IndiaTwitter account has been teasing the launch in the country as well from past few days. 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. But there is a lot more to the Find X than meets the eye.
The device comes in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue color options with gradient finish on the edges. The result is the Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini phone, a fancier version of the Android handset. The catch is that while modern phones are sparing more real-estate for the screen than ever before, they come with various compromises such as the ugly and perpetually distracting notch.
