OPPO Find X Ditches the Notch, Joins Vivo NEX with Pop-Up Cameras
The highly-anticipated flagship iteration of Chinese smartphone-maker OPPO has finally arrived. And with its official launching came some of the most controversial features that could either direct the industry to another route or confirm that a notch isn't so trendy after all.
If the official release of the OPPO Find X is to be taken as a parameter of all things trendy, then it might be clear now that the smartphone industry isn't that highly ecstatic with notches on their phones in spite of strong showings as of late. Yes, the OPPO Find X is now official and alongside the unveiling, the most awaited iteration totes around features that mirror the future of premium device offerings.
OPPO's 2018 "Find" revival, the OPPO Find X gets a full makeover. It comes with Snapdragon 845 chipset, a flagship-competitive 8GB RAM, a wealthy 256GB of internal storage, and global LTE bands. The OPPO Find X also comes bearing a reliable 3,730mAh battery with the company's proprietary VOOC fast charging technology. For its software front, the device runs the latest ColorOS offering and a fresh Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.
Perhaps the most revealing feature of the OPPO Find X is ironically not in it, a glaring notch at the top. Instead, the latest Find iteration is equipped with a maximized, bezel-less display, offering a glorious 6.4-inch 1080p OLED screen with a whopping 92.26% screen-to-body ratio.
Equally a shocker is the OPPO Find X's inclusion of a cutting edge pop-up slider which houses all three cameras, the 25MP front-facing camera and the 16MP + 20MP dual rear camera. In fact, this offering, while similar to that of the Vivo NEX S, has clearly outpaced the latter as it also boasts of a retractable front shooter. Meanwhile, the device didn't come with the rumored in-display fingerprint scanner, but compensates it with an improved 3D facial recognition technology.
The notch-less OPPO Find X's pricing and availability are yet to be announced by the company. Stick around on this site for more details.
