After weeks of teasers and rumors, the OPPO Find X has been finally revealed. Without a doubt, it looks like it’s as good as how we imagined it to be.
In its teasers, OPPO wanted everyone to focus their excitement on the device’s display. And now that we are seeing it officially, the company most certainly delivered. This handset has an impressive 93.8% screen-to-body ratio with its almost non-existent bezels. The OPPO Find X has curved edges just like the Galaxy S9 and S9+ — giving that extra sleek look.
To accomplish this feat, OPPO resorted to pop-up cameras just like what Vivo did on the NEX-series. However, instead of just the selfie camera, the Find X’s front and dual rear cameras are placed in a single chariot, which pops up only when needed.
This implementation actually looks more elegant than the NEX. The entire mechanism compliments the entire look of the device. But since it is a moving part, we’re quite concerned about its reliability over time.
But going back, the dual cameras on the back are 16-megapixel and 20-megapixels. In front, there’s a 25-megapixel shooter for selfies. It also has 3D facial scanning system, which is really crucial since, unlike the NEX, OPPO wasn’t able to include an in-display, or any fingerprint scanner technology on this device.
OPPO also introduced its own version of the Animojis — the Omojis. It works the same way as Apple’s implementation, with the cute animations mimicking the person using it. There are also multiple lighting modes such as Bi-color light and Face light. It is also capable of detecting the scenery of the shot with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Speaking of the screen, what we are looking at is a 6.4-inch OLED curved screen with a 1080p resolution. It also sports other high-end specs like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a massive 256GB of internal storage.
The OPPO Find X also has a generous battery rated at 3,730mAh with VOOC fast charging technology. On the downside, it still doesn’t have wireless charging. OPPO has also omitted the headphone jack on this device, to keep pushing the USB Type-C standard forward.
OPPO Find X runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with a layer of ColorOS 5.1 on top — which also comes with iPhone X-like gesture controls. The company is working closely with Google and it will be receiving an Android P Beta software soon.
The OPPO Find X will be available in a shiny Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue variants. It has an official price of EUR999 (~USD1,158 / Php61,700). The phone will start shipping starting August, although it’s currently unclear which regions will get the smartphone first. It will be available in Europe, North America, and several countries in Asia like the Philippines.

I am sure, it is durable according to them, it has been tested to pop up for 300,000 times. it may last 5 or more years. On an average we may use it around 100 times a day.I trust this since I have oppo n3 motorized rotating camera for almost 5yrs now and encounter no problem at all. the camera can be manually pulled up and down though
The big question there is how many times can you pop up the camera before it breaks? its a moving part for pete’s sake! its going to break eventually. Less moving parts the better
