China's Oppo enters Europe and United States phone market with £999 flagship


During that demo, they have claimed that Super VOOC's low 5V voltage is a key differentiator as other charging technologies from Qualcomm and MediaTek were pushing for higher voltage to reduce charging time. Oppo Find X does not come with a fingerprint scanner and the phone instead relies on 3D facial unlock authentication.

After a slew of speculations, the Oppo Find X smartphone finally had its official moment of unveiling in Paris.

Oppo's AI-assisted sensor also brings animated 3D emojis - just like the ones seen on the iPhone X. The Find X achieves this by taking forward things that Vivo started with its recently launched X21, and adding all sorts of insane to it, down to the T. The Find X, to begin with, has a whopping 93.8 per cent screen-to-body ratio. To talk about some of the highlight specs, the Oppo Find X is powered Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and packs 256GB of storage. It will also support expandable storage via microSD card. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Some might associate Chinese phones with devices more at the affordable end of the scale, but the Find X is Oppo's opportunity to demonstrate it can make a premium-feeling device too.

The Chinese company is marketing the new Find X as the "world's first panoramic designed phone". It still is unsure whether this variant will be launched in India or not, but an event is scheduled for July 12 where we expect to get more details.

It said that the 3D structured light module in Find X can project 15,000 dots, building a precise and complete 3D module of a user's face, and then compares with the registered face of the owner to unlock. The design-focused choices don't stop there. Its rear-facing cameras are in the traditional position on the back of the phone. It does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.

According to The Verge, the camera module can move into the "ready" position within 0.5 seconds. As for the selfies and video calling, the Find X has been equipped with a 25-megapixel camera on the front panel. The front camera AI also supports 3D emojis.

It has a motorized sliding dual rear cameras with a 16-megapixel primary and a 20-megapixel secondary camera set up with LED flash, OIS, AI portraits and AI Scene Recognition technology that can identify 800 scenes.

You won't find a notch on this phone. The special edition smartphone will have a textured carbon fiber back with a Lamborghini logo etched in, and also Super VOOC charging support out-of-the-box. Now most people would find that inconvenient, but OPPO is hoping that its face recognition system - which is housed in the same motorized slide up portion - will be enough.

Oppo has announced its latest flagship smartphone at a price of Euro 999 (around Rs 78,730) for the 256GB version.
