Oppo Find X price and release date revealed

Oppo Find X price and release date revealed
You might have never heard about Oppo, a Chinese phone maker that does not sell its devices much outside of Asia, but the new truly bezel-less phone with a slider mechanism will surely have you remember this name. The futuristic device that you see above is the Oppo Find X, a phone with practically no bezel and no notch either (to be perfectly precise, it features a record 93% screen-to-body ratio). And it's a true flagship rocking the Snapdragon 845 chip under the hood with a whopping 256GB of storage, a clever camera and an advanced face recognition feature that Oppo is so confident in that it has not included a fingerprint scanner.

But what is the price and release date of the futuristic Oppo Find X?

The company has concluded its launch event in Paris and unveiled that the Find X price is set at 999 euro and the phone will be available in August 2018.

Oppo also revealed that the Find X will make its way to Europe with sales starting soon in France, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. Some slight variations in price are also possible.


What about the United States? Oppo has previously said that it will bring the Find X to North America, but so far we have no further details on pricing and availability.

Finally, we ought to mention that there will also be a stylish, luxurious Lamborghini edition of the Find X going for a price of 1699 euro for those who are interested.

Do mention that Lamborghini version has Super VOOC charging that does 0-100% charging in 35 minutes with a 50 Watt charger, as well as has a 512 GB storage.

This phone looks dope as hell.

If the camera is as good as the X, Pixel 2, P20 Pro, or S9, I would gladly pay a $1000 for it.

I don't care as much about the camera, but I would just want to get a feel for the software before I committed. If I liked it, I would pay $1000 for it as well.

I loved the swipe animations for a pre-production unit, and I am using a P20 Pro, so I'm used to heavily skinned software. It's really tempting, hans down the best looking smartphone ever built(imo).

You should never underestimate Oppo and Vivo in cameras. They are crazy good. Infact i saw unbox therapy's video of Find X. He captured and showed some samples. They were stunning.

Don't mind him, he's a fanboy who believes only his favorite OEM make great smartphones.

At least they are not in love with Apple. My 2015 phone is thinner than i8+, bigger battery, brighter screen with wider gamut. Also better video stabilization, stereo recording and IP 68. Not that bad...

Photos always look great on cellphones. OP6 has very impressive front camera. Rear is not same level but it is much better than 5t. Oppo and Vivo are not same level. The Nex S samples on gsmarena are awful. The older X20 Plus UD does better.

I actually own a vivo phone and I think camera is just as good as the S8 I used to own before it went to crap on me.

The camera on the vivo nex beats out the pixel 2 in many instances including low light so anything is possible with vivo sister company

Low light pictures were comparable to the S9, but daylight pictures were trash, overexposed and flat. Hopefully that will be addressed with a software update.

Samples on gsmarena say otherwise. Overexposed, wrong white balance and bokeh that has no blur

I'll tell you all about it once I receive my unit

I'm not sure about this one, but Nex's camera is goodhttps://www.androidauthority.com/vivo-nex-vs-google-pixel-2-camera-876693/ This phone is close sibling to Nex, so it won't be that far from Nex.

€1699? Cant believe Oppo is going to charge almost as much as Apple.

1699 is the price for Lamborghini edition. And even for normal edition charging as much as Apple, it has way better features, design and specs.

I get that they want to have near bezeless displays but this mechanized retractable cork factor seems so impractical for many reasons: - Dirt and dust are going to collect and get lodged in there easily - Facial and selfie functions aren’t going to be instantaneous - How is this going to be compatible with cases in a way that doesn’t feel off putting or in efficient - This has the potential to break and malfunction easily I can foresee Until technology becomes advanced enough where the glass could offer translucency with the sensors being placed under the display, we should just be content with a set amount of bezel. It’s best that we do it right rather than experiment with far fetched and gimmick design features

- Facial and selfie functions are almost instantaneous. You should watch the launch event video or hands on video. - Oppo claimed in launch event that they tested the mechanism for 300,000 times of use. An user will at max use mechanism for 150 times a day. So that will provide for 5+ years of use without any issues. All this has been said by Oppo. You should probably watch the launch event. I got the link from their Twitter handle. These tech sites haven't told like 30-40% of the things Oppo mentioned.

Still, this phone has tradeoffs, and a chin. I mean, did they spend all those efforts to eliminate the notch, and then left a chin in place ? Even if it's a step forward, it is not worth this kind of money.

Is there a smaller chin currently than 3.4mm? That's smaller than the iPhone eks bottom bezel. It's the best in the industry currently. No chin would be great but hasn't been done yet.

Are you blind ? That 3.4mm is typical Chinese misleading information. Just look at it in The Verge video, it's obviously 5-6mm tall. And a chin is a chin, no matter how you put it.

Lol ok. All phones have chins. That's what I said. I'll take a hands on review over your racist perspective.https://www.techradar.com/reviews/oppo-find-x-hands-on

Well, iPhone has a chin too and bezel! Open your eyes don't be blind. Just because that iPX is just symmetrical, doesn't mean iPX has no chin and bezel.

This is so going to be a flop.

Your comment is a flop.

This is how a bezel-less phone should look like. No notch, no chin and very minimalist design. But this is NOT how a phone should be priced like.
