Oppo Find X goes official with a pop-up slider with three cameras


Ahead of its scheduled launch event in Paris, the Oppo Find X is now official courtesy of The Verge.

The Oppo Find X is a striking handset. The Find X is the first premium phone from the company after the Find 7 device, which was released in 2014. However, some companies, like Vivo, are trying to whittle down those bezels and not compromise with a notch. The device sports a curved body with glass on both sides, which are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Oh display notch, how we barely knew thee. 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. Oppo claims the camera launches in 0.5 seconds, something that TheVerge agrees is "fairly accurate". There is still a small slit for the earpiece above the display but OPPO has come up with a trick, albeit a familiar one, to hide the sensors and front camera.

Aside from the motorised camera system, the Find X doesn't have any fingerprint sensor.

With that being said, one big plus with the Find X is that Oppo has finally deemed the United States worthy to receive its phones.

The screen does not have any notches or buttons and the space on the front will nearly entirely be occupied by the 6.42 inch AMOLED display. It is powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage.

The Playfuldroid report recently leaked that the Find X will feature a dual-camera setup, comprising a 16MP primary and a 20MP secondary camera.

There's also AI scene recognition which can identify 21 different scenarios, automatically adjusting the camera settings, giving you better photos. It also has two rear-facing cameras that aren't immediately obvious, either. Up front is AI-assisted 25-megapixel selfie camera. But, honestly, the most unique thing about Oppo's latest phone is that hideaway camera.

There's a sizable 3,730mAh battery sealed inside the Find X, and it features Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology allowing you to give it a quick blast before heading out the door, via the USB-C port. Oppo also says that the battery can be charged from zero-100 percent in just 35 minutes. The connectivity features of the smartphone will include dual-SIM support, NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11ad and Global Positioning System. There is no audio jack which shouldn't be a surprise anymore.
