OPPO is set to unveil its latest flagship Find X in Paris on 19 June, and the device’s most touted feature is undoubtedly its amazing display. As teased in various images, the Find X will boast a screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 percent – the highest ever on a smartphone.
This beats even the vivo NEX, which is the current champion at 91.24 percent.
The design of the Find X’s display resembles the Samsung Galaxy S flagship series, where the glass curves on the sides, meeting the body.
What’s interesting is that it doesn’t feature a notch (let’s celebrate), which then begs the question, “where’s the camera?”
We’ll just have to wait for the launch to find out, won’t we?
OPPO’s Find series is the smartphone maker’s flagship series. If you can remember (I know, it’s been a while), the Find 7 was a cutting-edge device that showed the world what the company was capable of. It boasted an ultra-high definition QHD display as well as the amazing VOOC rapid-charging technology.
Why did OPPO abandon its technological showcase? Who knows? Perhaps the premium mid-range segment was and is more lucrative. It’s been four years since the Find 7 by the way.
OPPO since then has been hell bent on more lifestylish, selfie-centric, celebrity-endorsed products like the OPPO F series and R series.
As you may know, OPPO and OnePlus (not forgetting vivo) share a lineage by virtue of the group that owns them – BBK Electronics. Hence, it’s hardly a surprised that the Find X will feature internals that are similar to the flagship OnePlus 6.
As shown in teaser imagery, the Find X will sport the top rung Snapdragon 845 chip with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
I’d expect the device to feature VOOC Charge, something that’s been missing from OPPO devices for a while now. Let’s see if they’re finally commercialising the ground-breaking Super VOOC they showcased at MWC 2016. A full charge in 15 minutes? Oh yes.
So far, there has been no clues about the Find X’s cameras, but we will find out soon enough.
The OPPO Find X launch happens in Paris, France at 8.45PM Paris time (2.45AM MYT, 20 June 2018). You can watch the live stream here.
