Oppo Find X emerges in new press renders, spec sheet also revealed

Oppo Find X emerges in new press renders, spec sheet also revealed
Oppo has largely retreated from the flagship smartphone segment in recent years. In fact, the company’s last flagship was the Find 7 which became official back in March 2014. However, according to a newly leaked spec sheet and render, the Chinese brand may finally be making a comeback in the segment with the Find X, ahead of its push into European markets.

Taking a look at Oppo’s design approach, the render in question clearly shows off the presence of a display notch – albeit a pretty small one – which appears to include a front-facing camera and an in-ear speaker. However, unlike most Android smartphones, the Find X appears to sport a very minimal chin. Nevertheless, considering press renders can sometimes be misleading, it’ll remain to be seen what the bezel situation looks like in person. Moving over to the rear, the device looks suspiciously like a premium version of 2015’s OnePlus 2. After all, the plastic rear seen on the OnePlus model has been swapped out for a much more premium glass panel complete with a unique design pattern. Additionally, a vertical metallic camera module makes a return but now includes two camera sensors instead of just one, as well as a dual-tone LED flash.

Now, despite its visual similarities, the spec sheet of the Oppo Find X certainly confirms its 2018 flagship nature. After all, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will be making an appearance alongside 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Additionally, keeping the lights on will be a large 4,000mAh battery, while Android 8.1 Oreo will ship straight out of the box. Other specifications reportedly include support for 3D facial recognition technology, much like Xiaomi’s Mi 8. However, considering the size of the notch in the leaked renders, this appears highly unlikely.

It’s currently unclear when Oppo will officially announce its new flagship, but the smartphone can be expected to go on sale in various Asian markets upon launch. Additionally, considering the nearing arrival of the brand in France, Italy, and Spain, it seems likely that the Oppo Find X may also see a limited European release.
