The Oppo Find X comes in two colour variants, that includes Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. This flagship smartphone will be made available from August this year.
Let us look at the design and features of this new smartphone by Oppo in detail:
This new Oppo Find X comes in a nice shiny metal back with curved edges, and no camera sensors will be visible normally. Instead, whenever you open or close the camera app in the phone, there is a motorised slider with camera’s that opens and closes automatically. This phone has a bezel-less display with a small chin.
Speaking about the slider, it consists of a dual camera setup at the rear side, and a single front camera. The company claims that, the camera slider has been tested over 300,000 times for durability. This slider is also important to unlock the device because this phone does not have a fingerprint scanner. Instead, Oppo has introduced a unique facial scanning technology on this Find X, which they call it as the O-Face Recognition. This tech is enabled by a 3D Structured Light Technology that the company claims has never been used on any Android smartphone. This technology uses 15,000 facial dot recognition and intelligent analysis to read a face. It also comes with an IR sensor that lets O-Face work in the dark as well. So, to unlock the device you need to turn the phone on and swipe on the lock screen, after that the camera slider comes up to scan your face. The company claims that this O-Face Recognition is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition in order to unlock the phone.
Additionally, the Find X comes with Oppo’s AI-assisted sensor that brings animated 3D emojis, similar to that you see on the iPhone X. The company is calling it as 3D Omoji, and it will let you choose a funny image or create a personal cartoon image to mimic your facial expression in real time.
