Oppo may hit the ground running when it comes to the US

Oppo may hit the ground running when it comes to the US
So, yesterday, the Oppo Find X sort of just appeared in a surprise announcement. And it was a pretty impressive pop-up, with its camera popup mechanism wowing YouTubers and smartphone users alike.

Going beyond the flashy exterior, the Oppo Find X also packs some jaw-dropping hardware, with a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 20 MP main camera and a highly-detailed 25 MP selfie camera. And the company announced that it'll actually be coming to Western markets with even a possible carrier distribution deal in the US.

Whoa. So, we wondered — are you interested? Here are the results:

Oppo Find X: yay or nay?

Yep! I am throwing money at the screen right now!
43.19%
Maybe... I'd like to know how robust that mechanism is first
36.88%
Meh. It's eye candy, but I'm not interested
19.92%


Looks like a lot of people will be keeping an eye on the Oppo Find X! Unfortunately, we did learn that it'll be priced at $999 after we ran the poll. Now, that price-tag might take the wind out of some potential buyers' sails... But we'll see how it goes whenever the Find X launches!

I'm curious how the mechanism will work if sand, dirt, debris, or whatever gets in there.... also some creative cases will be needed... i guess this is the next step before someone can figure out how to get the camera under the screen without issues. i still think essential did it best, but if you have sensors for 3D scanning i'm not sure how you get that all under the screen.

If you look closely, you can see it's already loaded with a bunch of lint. That thing better be sturdy else you ain't gonna unlock your phone anymore...

i see... that would be messed up... i think they should have at least had a FPS on the back

Will lease it first to test it out if it comes to carriers... That way I'm not on the hook for a rack if it's not up to snuff...

Definitely not on Sprint! Wouldn't even be able to get on this site with their trash service.

$999 is the price for 256 gb variant. I hope 128gb with 6gb ram is also made available outside china. That could easily be priced at $899

Great for Tin Hatters! Undiserable to put a piece of tape on the screen if they get/put the camera under the screen.

No water proof, no interest what so ever No stereo speakers No selfie flash No infrared sensor

Selfie flash is fairly rare to be a deal breaker. I know motorola has them, who else?

It's an awesome design and idea. But why exclude the FPS completely. Facial recognition should never be the primary means of authentication.
