Oppo found a really creative way to kill the smartphone 'notch'

Oppo found a really creative way to kill the smartphone 'notch'

Since Lamborghini is often associated with speed, OPPO is finally introducing its Super VOOC charging technology on this special edition premium device. It comes with an 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage which is further expandable via microSD card of up to 400GB. For that, the phone comes with carbon texture finish at the back and features styling very similar to the supercar company.

"OPPO's relentless efforts in creating smartphones that push the boundaries led to the creation of the Find Series". The base variant will cost you Euro 999 (roughly Rs. 79,000) and will be made available in August. 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. A China event is scheduled for June 29. The Chinese OEM has also launched a special Lamborgini edition of the phone, which will come at an expensive price tag of Euro 1699 (roughly Rs 1,33,880). It does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. It has camera sensors up front or at the back. Closing the camera app sends the mechanism into the closing mode, and the section smoothly goes back to being hidden in the top section of the phone.

OPPO already has experience in the field of rotating cameras so there should be no issues with the durability of the sliding system though it should be noted that since this is a moving part, it will wear down eventually. The front has curved glass, too, and the display panel is a 1080p OLED.

The first thing you'll notice about Find X is that it sports a unique motorized pop-up mechanism that reveals both the front and rear-facing cameras when open. On the front, there's a 25-megapixel camera for selfies, which Oppo says has been combined with a 3D camera array that can better figure out lighting to more accurately illuminate your face.

Oppo has also followed in the footsteps of Huawei and LG's flagships by offering AI Scene recognition for photographs which supports over 20 different scenarios, including food and pets. According to the company, O-Face Recognition is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone. On its front, there's also a 25MP selfie camera that has been enhanced with AI-fueled algorithm and a set of additional sensors to help it deliver not only good selfie but also fast and secure face unlocking capability. Oppo uses the 3D Structured Light Technology to map out the nose, eyes, and other facial features, and "personalize your selfie" as a result. The phone features a bezel-less, notch-less all-display screen and comes at a price of 999 euros.

At its heart, the phone houses the latest and the fastest Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 845.

The OPPO Find X isn't set to debut for at least several more hours, and yet nearly all the details about the Chinese OEM's latest flagship smartphone have been laid out courtesy of a post from The Verge.
