This iPhone X Killer Sports a Wild Motorized Camera


The Oppo Find X is official, and it's every bit as futuristic as it was touted to be prior to launch. But that wasn't the only surprise the company had at its launch event in Paris. Let's take a look at what the pop-up camera is all about along with other specs.

Oppo Find X measures 156.7 x 74.3 x 9.4mm and weighs around 186 grams. Switch on the camera app and the top of the phone slides open (you don't need to do anything manually) to reveal a dual camera on the back, and a pretty fancy 25 megapixel camera on the front that not only clicks wonderful selfies, it also works as facial recognition device... because in the quest for purity, the Find X has no fingerprint scanner either. The device has a dual 16 and 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1080P screen. The entire working of this element was shown at the launch event, and it looked smooth. When the phone is off or the camera app isn't engaged, the cameras are completely hidden. On the front, there's a 25-megapixel camera for selfies, which Oppo says has been combined with a 3D camera array that can better figure out lighting to more accurately illuminate your face. It allows users to securely sign-in under any light conditions.

- The 3D facial recognition technology on-board the Oppo Find X uses a system that's pretty similar to the one found on the iPhone X. It consists of a dot projector, an infrared camera and a flood illuminator that apparently makes O-Face (that's what Oppo calls its system) a whole lot secure and faster than conventional mechanisms. The 6.4-inch OLED display is curved just like Samsung's smartphones and the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. As the name suggests, this variant has been made in collaboration with Lamborghini and also sports its logo on the rear panel. Oppo claims that an average user unlocks the phone 150 times a day at most and guarantees Find X can handle that. It is bundled with 3D sensors that support FaceUnlock just like the iPhone X. Both cameras are also supported with AI features. The rear camera setup supports portrait mode along with automatic screen recognition that applies effects according to the scene detection and depth-of-field effects. As such, you will not find a traditional fingerprint reader on this device.

On the software, the new Oppo smartphone runs proprietary ColorOS 5.1 based Android 8.1 Oreo. The base variant will cost you Euro 999 (roughly Rs. 79,000) and will be made available in August. The phone is available in two colour options, Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue.

Fittingly, this is the first-ever phone with Super VOOC, tech that was announced a couple of years ago.

RAM: The Oppo Find X comes with up to 8GB RAM. The Chinese OEM has also launched a special Lamborgini edition of the phone, which will come at an expensive price tag of Euro 1699 (roughly Rs 1,33,880).
