The OPPO Find series is back. At their event in Paris, France this morning Oppo has unveiled the first OPPO Find phone in four years. To herald the return of their flagship line, OPPO has pulled out all the stops holding the event at the Louvre to bring an innovative, and quite beautiful looking phone to market.
OPPO Find X
The obvious headline feature for the Find X is the lack of a notch in the 6.4″ 1080p resolution OLED display. OPPO is calling this display their Panoramic Arc Screen. The screen has a 1.65mm bezel either side, and a 3.4mm chin at the bottom making for what OPPO says is a 93.8% coverage on the front of the phone.
The cameras – both front and rear – are hidden beneath the curved 3D glass that adorns the front and back, in a motorised assembly which slides up in under half a second when the camera app is opened or when the lock screen is accessed. In terms of durability, OPPO says they’ve tested it to over 300,000 times.
The cameras are nothing to be sneezed at either with a 25MP sensor in the front and dual camera setup incorporating a 16MP and 20MP sensors on the rear. 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 front camera module also includes a host of sensors for a 3D facial scanning system called ‘O-Face’ for security on the Find X. 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.
OPPO is so confident of their 3D Facial scanning system that they’ve dropped the fingerprint sensor entirely. Once the phone is powered up, the motorised cameras pop up, scan your face and you’re away. It’s looks fast, but we’ll have to wait for a review unit to really check this out.
Internally the phone is, like the leaks suggested, using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and has 256GB of on-board storage. The phone is powered by a 3,730mAh battery which of course supports their VOOC fast charging.
The phone is of course running Color OS, based on Android 8.1 and OPPO says that the Find X will support the Android P Beta. OPPO has included Google Lens and Google Assistant in the Color OS build as well. We’ve had problems with OPPO’s implementation of Android previously and we’ll see how this latest version goes when the phone arrives.
Oppo is also launching their version of Apple’s Animoji, with the OPPO Omoji. Using the O-Face 3D Structure Light tech, OPPO’s Find X will build Omoji that capture your facial expressions in real time and then let you export the results to an album or use them in chat apps.
Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini edition
OPPO has also announced a special edition Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X. The Lamborghini edition will include tweaked design with a carbon fibre layer peering through the glass on the rear with a 3D engraved Lamborghini logo on the rear. The phone will also be delivered in a special edition packaging, with special edition yellow coloured braided USB cable.
The phone will also have Super VOOC Flash Charge, a new version of their proprietary charging system. Super VOOC Charging will charge the 3,400mAh battery in the Lamborghnini edition in 35 minutes using a 10V5A charger.
The Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X will also have an updated storage with a massive 512GB of on-board storage.
The phone will be available in two colours – Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue – for €999 with the phone going on-sale in Europe in August. OPPO says the Find X Automobili Lamorghini Edition will cost €1,699, though no dates have been given for launch.
OPPO hasn’t shared any details on international availability beyond advising it will be going on-sale in the US. We’ve asked OPPO Australia for more details on a launch here and we’ll let you know if there’s any updates.
