Oppo is launching its first ever smartphone in Europe and North America – The Oppo Find X, it is said to be priced £999 (about $1,155 at current USD conversation rates).
The announced regarding the pricing was made during their reveal event at Louvre, Paris. Prior to the Find X, Oppo phones were restricted to China, India, Philippines, and a few other Asian countries. This new model, which features an edge-to-edge display, is Oppo’s attempt to compete with top-tier smartphone companies like Apple and Samsung.
Now their striking unique feature is their camera. It has a motorized pop-up mechanism that reveals both the front and rear-facing cameras when open. Of course, this means you won’t be able to take any selfies or regular pictures should the device be closed. To open up the phone to snap shots, you’ll simply open the camera app or any app that has been granted access to the camera and the phone will automatically motor itself open, then close itself when you’re done.
Also for this phone, Oppo does not have a fingerprint sensor rather they have 3D facial recognition technology that uses the phones front-facing camera.For example, to unlock the device, you’ll turn the screen on, swipe up on the lockscreen, which will then force the phone to open up to reveal the front camera. The camera will then take a look at you, recognize you (if you’re the owner), then unlock for using. Oppo is also launching a Lamborghini edition of the Find X phone for €1,699 (about $1,961) with an engraved logo and superior fast charging capability.
