OPPO Find X hands on
The OPPO Find X is here, and its powerful performance, futuristic pop-up camera and no bezel design has got us feeling very excited.

Meet OPPO

If you haven’t heard of OPPO before, you’re in for a right treat. It’s China’s leading 4G smartphone manufacturer – and actually one of the biggest phone brands in the world. Three new OPPO phones are coming to Carphone Warehouse but it’s the new flagship, the Find X, which has sent us into a flurry of excitement.

The Find X’s design and display

The Find X’s screen is the closest any manufacturer has ever come to designing an all-screen smartphone. There’s no notch on the phone’s high-quality metal and glass body, allowing more room for a gorgeous 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display made from strong Gorilla glass 6. The screen ratio covers 93.8% of the front so you can enjoy all of your favourite movies on the big, bright display.

Screen aside, the Find X is a real thing of beauty. It’s curved and thin, with a shimmery two-tone blue/black gradient design on the back. The device shines elegantly at different angles. Honestly, we think it’s one of the best looking phones to surface in 2018.

Camera

Wondering where the camera is? The Find X has a fantastic sliding “3D Stealth Camera” that extends and retracts at the click of a button to reveal the front and back camera. Futuristic, right? And the cameras are not just hidden – they also contain a number of innovative technologies.

If you like cameras that know what they’re doing, you’re in luck. Because both the 16MP and 20MP dual lens rear camera - and 25MP front-facing camera - come with AI-enhanced shooting options that do all of the work for you. So, whether you’re taking pictures in a low-light setting or of an action-packed scenario, the Find X’s AI Scene Recognition technology will figure out the best way to capture your photo.

OPPO has also added a 3D Omoji feature, which uses 3D light technology to create animated emojis that imitate your real-life expressions.

Under the hood

There’s so much impressive tech going on under the hood of the Find X that it’s hard to know where to start.

There’s a built-in fingerprint sensor in the screen and face unlock, featuring 3D Face Recognition, which uses 15,000-dot projection and 3D light structuring to scan your face. Talk about added security.

And if you like your phones powerful with an ultra-fast response rate, the Find X’s Snapdragon 845 processor is sure to meet your expectations. Gaming is speedy and smooth, and switching between applications is more efficient than ever. There’s also 8GB running memory and a huge storage memory of up to 256GB.

OPPO has even introduced SuperVOOC Flash Charge, which fully charges the Find X in just 35 minutes. Ideal for when you’re short of time and battery.

Our verdict

The Find X has put OPPO well and truly on the map. This phone is innovative, brimming with top-end specs to rival any of the leading flagships, and it’s drop dead gorgeous. If you’re looking for something unique with a one-of-a-kind design, the search ends here. You’ll be able to purchase the new OPPO Find X at Carphone Warehouse very soon. Watch this space.
