To make up for the lack of fingerprint recognition, Oppo has introduced a unique facial scanning technology called the O-Face Recognition on the Find X. This is enabled by a 3D Structured Light Technology that the company claims has never been used on any Android smartphone. The phone features a bezel-less, notch-less all-display screen and comes at a price of 999 euros.
The Oppo Find X comes with a 6.4-inch OLED Panoramic Arc Screen with full HD+ resolution at 2340×1080 pixels and 93.5% screen to body ratio that is more than that of Vivo NEX S. It says that the face unlock tech uses 15,000 facial dot recognition and intelligent analysis.
The OPPO Find X is a device that sports a sliding mechanism which pops the entire top of the smartphone, uncovering the dual-rear-camera system and the selfie camera.
On the inside, the Find X is packing a flagship Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. On the software front, it runs Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS layered on top. Oppo Find X does not come with a fingerprint scanner and the phone instead relies on 3D facial unlock authentication.
On the outside, there's a carbon fiber effect finish, along with the Lamborghini raging bull logo.
Oppo's Find X will hit the shelves in August in select markets. There's also better protection for the cameras themselves what with having them covered by the body of the phone when not in use, the company argues.
The pop-up module houses a 25-megapixel selfie camera, and dual 16-megapixel rear cameras.
Is Find X the phone you've been waiting for? The company is expected to reveal the price later today at an event in Paris. As for the back cameras, the two sensors are accompanied by Optical Image Stabilization, Phase Detection Autofocus, Dual-Tone LED flash and f/2.0 apertures for both sensors. That, though, does have to be balanced against the fact that it's probably going to be tricky to find a case that fits the Find X but also allows the cameras to pop up when required.
OPPO has finally launched a new Find-series flagship smartphone that is long due.
But as The Verge notes, mechanical components like a sliding camera module could pose issues with water resistance, durability, and longevity of the device.
