The Find series in OPPO is back with a new design, after a break in 2014. With a Screen size of 6.4-inch it is a big jump when compared to the 5.5-inch screen of the Find 7 and Find 7A, but practically, there isn’t a huge difference in the size of these phones.
The very first impression on the smart phone makes it look similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9. This comes from the fact that it features a rather Samsung-like Infinity Display with a flexible OLED display that bends into the sides, disappearing into the bezels.
OPPO has come up with what it calls, “Stealth 3D cameras” which has a large automatic sliding mechanism the width of the phone. This part of the phone slides out, revealing the front camera and 3D face scanning sensors for unlocking the phone, it also reveals the dual rear cameras and LED flash. It is different from the Vivo NEX that has a pop-out front-facing camera.
OPPO says the slide-out mechanism pops out in just 0.5 seconds. It is pretty fast according to The Verge. The Find X doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. So it is either 3D Face Unlock or O-Face as OPPO calls it or pin/pattern/password. The O-Face feature (3D face unlock) , OPPO says has a failure rate of 1/1,000,000 compared to that of a fingerprint scanner which is 1/50,000 and is secure enough for online payments.
The OPPO Find X features a 6.4-inch curved 1080p OLED display with a 93.8% screen to body ratio. It is powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of built-in storage. It has got a 25MP camera for selfies with multiple 3D portrait lighting features. There is a 16MP + 20MP dual camera combo on the rear with OIS and AI features such as scene recognition.
The phone has a dual SIM slot which is at the bottom beside the USB-C port. It has global LTE support which means it will work in any country. There is no audio jack which shouldn’t be a surprise anymore. Battery capacity is 3,730mAh with OPPO’s VOOC fast charging. The Find X runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Color OS 5.1 on top. OPPO says the phone will get support for Android P beta.
OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition
Just as Huawei announced the Mate RS Porsche Design, OPPO has decided to partner with Italian car manufacturer Lamborghini, for a special edition Oppo Find X.
The OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition has a textured design under the rear glass that makes it appear like carbon fiber. It also has an engraved Lamborghini logo at the bottom.
OPPO hasn’t stopped at just upping the physical appearance. The Find X Lamborghini Edition is the first OPPO phone to come with SuperVOOC fast charge. SuperVOOC fast charge has a 50W power rating (10V/5A), allowing you to charge the phone’s 3400mAh battery from zero to 100% in just 35 minutes!
The phone also comes in a special packaging with custom accessories with design inspiration from some of Lamborghini’s cars. OPPO says this is the beginning of their partnership with Lamborghini, so expect future OPPO-Lamborghini phone
The OPPO Find X comes in blue and red. It will sell for €999 and will be available in August. The Find X Lamborghini Edition is black and will sell for €1699. OPPO says configuration and availability may vary from country to country.
