OPPO Find X: An all-screen phone with motorized pop-up cameras


OPPO has formally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone in Paris, France, and its off to level up the playing field in the smartphone industry. Meet the OPPO Find X.

Flaunting future-forward design, the Find X comes with a brand new panoramic body with holeless front and rear panels as well as smoothly inlaid glass on the edge. In front, the Panoramic Arc Screen screams class with its all-screen display format. This display uses COP flexible screen packing technology, bringing a visual screen ratio of 93.8 percent.

The Find X is a beautiful piece to hold with its two gradient color combinations—Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. OPPO used the Multifaceted Color Process to perfectly blend the gradient with the Find X’s 3D arc on the rear.

One big thing that OPPO is bringing to smartphone technology and design is the Find X’s motorized pop-up cameras. The Find X features a sliding structure that disguises the cameras within the body of the phone. When not in use, the cameras are hidden. When activated, the camera opens and slides up for unlocking and photographing.

These stealth 3D cameras includes the 25-megapixel front camera and the 16MP + 20MP dual rear cameras. The pop-up cameras also include a 3D Structured light module with many high-tech components, including flood illuminator, Infrared camera, proximity sensor, Dot projector, Receiver, and RGB camera.

Furthermore, the 3D structured light module in the Find X can project 15,000 dots. It can build a precise and complete 3D module of a user’s face and then compare it with the registered face of the owner to unlock.

Aside from 3D Smart Selfie Capture, O-Face also has another interesting function: the 3D Omoji. You can choose any interesting images to make Omojis or generate your cartoon avatar, and then create video or GIF Emojis.

OPPO also explores the use of AI to improve user experience in the Find X. Based on Android 8.1, OPPO ColorOS 5.1 is deeply integrated with the AIE engine of the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. The AI capability of this arrangement helps ColorOS 5.1 understand user needs better than ever before.

The OPPO Find X also features the built-in Google Assistant and the smart low-power-consumption MIC with DSP module. This means OPPO Find X can not only identify the magnitude of ambient noise intelligently but can also adjust the performance automatically to ensure high activation success rate.
