Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

Oppo Find X is all set for a global launch on tonight at The Louvre in Paris, France.

Apart from being a top-end phone, Oppo Find X's highlight is a camera system that gets completely tucked into the top edge when the phone is switched off. The Indian-specific launch has been scheduled for July 12.

The Oppo Find X's biggest selling point is surely its tall 6.4 inch 1080p OLED display which due to its full-screen nature fits in a body that can easily be held in one hand. Viewers can watch the live stream event below. Oppo on the other hand has chosen to forego this particular trait, citing that it believes in handsome design, but to combat the loss of an area on screen where the front-facing camera would have been, Oppo has instead chosen to implement a hidden camera design which it calls the Stealth 3D camera, complete with mechanical components that will slide the camera module up int view when the user is ready to take photos.

South Korea hoped Sweden couldn't tell Asians apart
It defies rationality to think that having the LA Galaxy striker on the bench wouldn't have strengthened Sweden's chances. It may well be a little unfair to heap all the weight of expectation and responsibility onto the shoulders of one player.

The display has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC with Adreno 30 GPU. On the rear, there is a dual-camera setup with 16MP f/2.0 primary sensor, and 20MP f/2.2 secondary sensor.

The smartphone packs a 3730mAh battery with VOOC fast charging. Keep an eye out for our in-depth Oppo Find X review soon to see if it can live up to its price tag. Another important thing to note is that the company has omitted the fingerprint sensor and instead have included array of sensors located on the slider which enables the users to unlock the smartphone using facial recognition. The special edition comes with engraved logo and offers 512GB of RAM and Super VOOC fast charging. The Find X is backed by a 3,730mAh non-removable battery and supports standard VOOC flash charge technology that gives 2 hours of usage time with just 5 minutes of charging. Oppo says all of this happens in less than 0.5 seconds so that you won't ever have to wait. Other than its powerful array of specs, it is the placement of cameras on the Find X that took the limelight.

OPPO Find X Initial Impressions: What's it like? OPPO has included AI in their cameras with the ability to recognise 21 independent scenes, 800 scene combinations, and implement special optimisations for all of them.

Paul Manafort Ordered to Jail After Witness Tampering Claims
The judge said Manafort abused the trust placed in him, adding: " This isn't middle school .I can't take your phone". Paul Manafort , President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, was booked into a Virginia jail on Friday night.

We know for sure that the phone has an all-display front.

But in actual fact, the Find X has a 25-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3D facial scanning system.

I've been looking forward to Android phones trying new things in design for a while now, so I'm glad to see Oppo making a bold move in that direction - and away from aping whatever compromises Apple makes with its products. The Find X Lamborghini Edition will be priced at an eye-watering EUR1699, or around USD$1965.

Risky heat & humidity building into Mid-Missouri
A risky combination of heat and humidity will be in the region Fridayafternoon and continue at least through early Sundayevening. Do not forget to stay hydrated, keep pets inside, and check in on the elderly to make sure they have proper working A/C.
