Ahead of its scheduled launch event in Paris, the Oppo Find X is now official courtesy of The Verge. According to the site, Oppo’s latest flagship smartphone features some interesting technology; one of which is a motorised, slide-out camera system.
That’s right, the Find X’s whole camera system is hidden until you need it. Once you’ve activated the camera, the top portion of the phone motorises up to reveal the 25MP front-facing shooter and 16MP + 20MP dual-camera system. In a way, it’s a more sophisticated – and sleeker – slide-out mechanism than the vivo Nex’s pop-up selfie camera.
Aside from the motorised camera system, the Find X doesn’t have any fingerprint sensor. Instead, it relies on 3D facial recognition for biometric security, much like the iPhone X. Whether or not Oppo’s implementation is as good as Apple’s Face ID system still remains to be seen.
Other specifications of the Find X include a 6.4-inch Full HD+ dual-curved OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, a 3,730mAh battery – it supports Oppo’s proprietary VOOC fast charging technology, of course – as well as ColorOS based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Oppo Find X is set to be available globally, although its retail price has not been revealed yet. Hopefully, the flagship phone will be launched here in Malaysia in the near future.
