Oppo’s Find X Adopts Pop-Up Camera For All-Screen Design
In the past year or so, there’s been an arms race between smartphone manufacturers to develop truly all-screen handsets. Oppo has upped the ante on this battle by introducing its Find X flagship model which features a motorized pop-up camera, allowing the screen to take up 93.8 percent of the phone’s front side.
The Find X’s design sports a 6.4-inch, 1080p screen and gets rid of the notch that Apple popularized with its iPhoneX. Instead, a 25-megapixel front shooter springs into action when camera or facial recognition apps are activated. When the apps are closed, the camera retreats back into the phone’s body.
Marketing itself closely with the concept of selfies, Oppo’s cameras are AI-assisted for optimal shot quality. Other familiar features such as Omojis (Oppo’s spin on Animojis), portrait lighting effects, and Beautify will all be present.
Like many flagship smartphones in 2018, the Oppo Find X will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Supporting the chipset is 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. This phone will run Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo's Color OS interface.
Oppo has emerged as a major smartphone player in Asia and has marketed its offerings heavily in the Philippines. The Find X marks the first time that Oppo will officially release phones in Europe and North America.
