The developments in the smartphone industry succeed each other in a heap of pace. Where the innovations used to be mainly from South Korea, nowadays the Chinese manufacturers are leading when it comes to bringing innovative new functions. That proves, among other things, Oppo with its new Find X rimless smartphone.
Last week, Vivo announced the groundbreaking Vivo NEX smartphone with a 6.59-inch display and a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. Last night, the Chinese competitor Oppo announced a similar smartphone with a borderless screen, the Oppo Find X.
Also, competitor Huawei seems to work on a full-screen smartphone in the background. Of course, Xiaomi does not lag behind, although this company has shown fewer innovations in the last two years than other Chinese smartphone manufacturers. In 2018 Xiaomi also belongs to the Top 5 best-selling smartphone brands in the world.
Oppo Find X smartphone with a borderless screen
Within the Find series, the top appliances of Oppo were available for years. Yet it remained remarkably quiet after the introduction of the Find 7a in early 2014. Until last night, the Chinese manufacturer had sent press invitations for the launch of the Oppo Find X. The global launch event took place in Paris, France.
The new Oppo Find X flagship device features a 6.42-inch screen, also called Panoramic Arc display. It is a 19.5: 9 OLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The stylish smartphone gets an even bigger screen-to-body ratio than the NEX, namely 93.8%. Only at the bottom is a small bezel, furthermore, it is a completely borderless smartphone.
The mobile phone runs on the Android Oreo OS and features the ColorOS 5.1 user interface, which has been redesigned to provide optimal performance for the new Panoramic Arc display.
The premium smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor with up to 8GB of RAM memory and 256GB of storage space. There is also a special game acceleration mode built in, making it one of the best smartphones for gaming.
As soon as the game interface is opened, the CPU of the phone will use an extra high frame rate. In addition, incoming calls and notifications are discreetly displayed during gaming, so that they will not disturb the user while playing games on your cell phone.
The Oppo Find X is equipped with a 3.750 mAh battery, which provides sufficient capacity to play for hours on end. Wireless charging is unfortunately not supported by this model.
Borderless smartphone with three extendable cameras
All sensors have been processed in the display of the phone; a different solution has been devised for the cameras. The Oppo Find X has no less than 3 extendable cameras; a front camera and a double camera that is facing towards the rear.
On the front is a 25-megapixel selfie-camera built in with AI-functionality. Thanks to artificial intelligence, the 3D camera can intelligently analyze your face, nose, eyes, etc. to further personalize your selfies. This peripheral smartphone from Oppo is also equipped with 3D lighting technology, for beautifully exposed portrait shots.
The double camera on the back is also equipped with artificial intelligence. The camera is capable of recognizing 800 different recording scenes and automatically selecting the right camera settings. It is a 16 and 20-megapixel camera, also the dual camera is equipped with optical image stabilization. The two cameras are so coordinated that you can easily take photos with a blurred background.
The so-called stealth 3D cameras also have face recognition. It is the first Android smartphone with 3D Structured Light technology. 15,000 face detection points are compared, making this form of biometric authentication 20 times safer than the fingerprint sensor of the Oppo R15 Pro. This is the other top model from Oppo, this advanced smartphone was introduced in March 2018.
The Oppo Find X does not have a fingerprint scanner. Two months ago we published a patent from Oppo for a smartphone with fingerprint sensor under the display. Apparently, this technology is not yet satisfied by developing to apply in this new fullscreen smartphone. On this part, the Find X is in comparison with the Vivo NEX, which does have an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Adding AR emoji has become very popular since the introduction of the iPhone X. The new Galaxy smartphones also feature similar interactive emoticons. Oppo has developed their own 3Emojiji, in real-time the facial expressions are recorded and translated into fun illustrations in the form of different animals, such as a duck, horse, penguin or hippopotamus. The created Emoji can easily be shared with friends.
