Find X: Oppo’s new full-screen phone has motorised pop-up camera

At their event in Paris, France this morning Oppo has unveiled the first OPPO Find phone in four years. But on the Oppo Find X, the phone's entire top side basically slides out, which appears to me to be the more elegant and aesthetically pleasing solution. The company has now revealed that the Find X will be launched in India on July 12. The OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition Smartphone with 512GB storage and Super VOOC flash charge technology costs Euro 1699 (approx $1999 / Rs 1,34,000).

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. Oppo also calls the display a Panoramic Arc Screen, which combines two pieces of glass with the front display to create a panoramic view effect. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC with Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM. The rear cameras are 16MP and 20MP units while the front camera is a 25MP shooter. This is an interesting choice - you don't get a lot of front facing cameras that are better than the rear. The company will also be launching the flagship phone with a mobile carrier, giving the possibility that the OPPO Find X will be much cheaper to get in the USA market. However, for people willing to take that chance, the Oppo Find X does look like quite a spectacular phone.

Aside from the motorised camera system, the Find X doesn't have any fingerprint sensor.

And on Friday, Holmes was charged by the United States government with wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. He added that Balwani had not committed any crimes and is looking forward to clearing his name during the trial.

The company has also tied up with Lamborghini to launch a special edition smartphone at 1699 euros for the 512 GB variant with Super Vooc charging technology. The SuperVOOC flash charging hardware in the Find X Lamborghini Edition has a maximum charge of 50W and can fully charge the phone's battery from 0 to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.

All that drama would be for naught if the Find X was packing sub-par cameras; happily, on paper at least, that's not the case. The phone doesn't feature a headphone jack and will instead use the USB Type-C port for audio when plugging in headphones.

The Oppo Find X is a striking handset. The slider consists of a dual camera setup at the rear end, and a single front camera. The smartphone will come in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue colour options. OPPO claims it has a screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 percent, and this effectively allows the phone to carry a 6.4-inch panel while remaining compact enough to operate one-handed. Some say this phone looks like a Galaxy S9, but with less bezel, and we know that to be accurate because Galaxy S9 has a screen-to-body ratio of 83.6%. The Find X Lamborghini Edition will be priced at an eye-watering EUR1699, or around USD$1965.
