Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is all set to launch its flagship smartphone Oppo Find X today at an event in Paris. The Find X has a 6.4-inch screen which is a big jump when compared to the 5.5-inch screen of the Find 7 and Find 7a, but with practically no bezels, there isn't a huge difference in the size of both phones. The Oppo Find X has an OLED display that looks quite neat, and ther eport also states that the Oppo Find X has a screen-to-body ratio of 92.25 percent. The Find X will arrive in North American "soon", so we'll be keeping you updated with pricing and carrier availability. Now a leak has revealed just where the front and rear cameras are located, after all if the display covers the entire front of the device where then does the selfie camera go?
Disclosure - The writer is in Paris attending the Find X launch on Oppo's invite. When you close the camera app, this piece of the phone will move back into the phone's chassis and disappear. It may be available in two colour options, Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue.
See the Verge's hands-on review below. The phone packs a 3,730mAh battery and supports quick charging as well.
You don't get wireless charging here though, which is a flagship feature Oppo has left out, we expect, to keep the cost down. But beware, it's likely to have a variety of bugs. It may include up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. However, the report doesn't mention whether the price is for the 512GB variant or the 256GB variant.
That's rather expensive, especially when you consider the lower resolution display (only full HD vs QHD). The handset will be going on sale in China starting today, and will be launched in India on July 12th. We do know it's in line for a global release with Oppo entering four European countries (Spain, France, Italy and the Netherlands) from June 19 with plans to expand to more in the future.
We don't yet have USA specific pricing or availability, but that info should be coming soon. There's already a lot of buzz around the phone, as it succeeds Oppo's popular Find 7 smartphone. There's also no word on any type of waterproofing. While the pop-up mechanism is no doubt intriguing, it would be prone to breaking after a few [inevitable] drops - especially if you drop the device with the camera module in the open position.
Oppo Find X will reportedly measure 156.7x74.2x9.6mm and weigh around 186 grams.
