I was in Auckland last night attending the local launch of the new OPPO Find X... A very impressive phone (Snapdragon 845, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, 3400 mAh and SuperVOOC charging) with a screen that covers more than 93% of the front area (OLED 6.42 inch 19.5:9) - no camera or notch in the front.

 

The camera is built-into a "slot" that retracts inside the body of the phone and comes out when the camera app (or any app that uses the camera) starts. It also comes out automatically for facial recognition unlock, which is pretty fast. The camera mechanism fully slides out in 0.6 seconds. OPPO says because of this speed they don't have the fingerprint scanner. 

 

WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac means a nice and fast connection to wireless networks. There's no NFC.

 

They also have a Lamborghini Edition (the launch was the Lamborghini showroom in Auckland). This one will set you back $ 2499 and will be available in New Zealand through 2degrees. 

 

Press release below:

 

 

Leading camera phone brand, OPPO, has launched its latest smartphone, the highly anticipated Find X. The new flagship device has some of the most futuristic technology and groundbreaking design known to phones.

 

The new innovations include an advanced smartphone design, Artificial Intelligence (AI) performance enhancements, improved 3D camera, and ‘SuperVOOC’ turbo charge technology.

 

Globally unveiling the flagship device at the Louvre museum in Paris, France in June, the Find X phone is the first smartphone to contain OPPO’s patented SuperVOOC technology. This enables the phone to go from zero battery to full charge in just 35 minutes – that’s the fastest absolute safety charging time of a phone on the planet right now.

 

OPPO New Zealand General Manager Kevin Cho, expects the Find X to challenge New Zealand perceptions of smartphones. “OPPO’s relentless research and investment into new technologies has enabled us to push the boundaries in delivering a completely new design to the New Zealand smartphone market,” says Kevin.

 

It will come in two gradient colour combinations — Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue and introduces a beautiful Panoramic Arc Screen, bringing the visual screen ratio to 93.8 per cent. With the front almost all-screen, the Find X provides an immersive and unprecedented visual experience, whilst offering an elegant look and feel.

 

To achieve the all-screen display, the Find X uses an innovative sliding structure that completely conceals the camera within the body of the phone. The Find X sports a 25-megapixel front camera and 16MP+20MP dual rear cameras. There’s also a 3D structured light module included, which projects 15,000 invisible dots to build a precise and complete 3D model of a user’s face, with millimeter-level accuracy.

 

With the assistance of AI Scene Recognition, OPPO Find X makes it easier to take high quality photos. It intelligently identifies scenes and objects while optimising the image. It also supports more than 20 photography scenarios and, with more than 800 scenario combinations including sunsets, snow, food and pets. National Geographic magazine could be calling for your photos.

 

Not only does the 3D cameras enhance users’ photos, but its built-in facial recognition technology has an even higher level of security than fingerprint. The false acceptance rate of fingerprint recognition is 1/50,000, while the false acceptance rate of 3D Face Recognition is 1/1,000,000.

 

Based on Android 8.1, OPPO ColorOS 5.1 is deeply integrated with the AI Engine of the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. ColorOS is stronger, faster and smarter than ever before with the Snapdragon 845.
OPPO Find X features the built-in Google Assistant and the smart low-power-consumption MIC with DSP module. This means OPPO Find X can not only make use of Google Assistant at all times but the Find X can also adjust the performance automatically to ensure high activation success rate.

It was good see you briefly last night @freitasm. Having the Oppo Find X launch at the Lamborghini show was pretty cool. We discussed the Find X on NZ Tech Podcast this week. It’s certainly a unique phone - backed up by some impressive specifications.

It does look amazing though I am wondering what impact the pop-up slider has in terms of reliability/point of failure and to battery life?

I'd agree with that - would exercise extreme caution in incorporating a mechanical moving part into a phone, especially where there is a chance of dust/grit/sand ingress into the external sliding bit

It does seem to compromise the structure of the phone:

Having something like this would surely make using a case difficult, at least any sort of case that offers decent drop protection. And there is no way I'm using any phone more expensive than a throw-away $50 cheapy without a case.

That was painful to watch. It did good. Oppo say the slider is good for 300,000+ operations.

As I wrote on my review - I saw these claims and noticed that AnTuTu gave me a score that was higher than my OnePlus 5T. But reality is that when you have the OPPO Find X in your hands it does feel fast and fluid.
