OPPO Find X introduces a gorgeous brand-new body, a panoramic design with holeless front and rear panels, and O-Face 3D Structured Light, to name a few. Although there are a lot of new features, here are our top five picks:
#1: Panoramic Arc Screen and Design
Find X achieves a refined silhouette, thanks to the holeless front and rear design as well as smoothly inlaid 3D glass on the edge. It’s graceful to look and can sit comfortably on your hand.
Find X introduces the unique and beautiful Panoramic Arc Screen, an all-screen display with no compromises. OPPO used COP flexible screen packing technology, bringing the visual screen ratio to 93.8%. With the front almost all-screen, Find X and its panoramic screen brings the user an unprecedented visual experience.
This will be available in two gradient color combinations—Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. The name itself sounds classy enough for the millennial bunch! The Multifaceted Color Process used by OPPO realizes a perfect blend of gradient design with a 3D arc on the rear. In the light, its body reflects light with different effects that depend on your surroundings.
#2: Stealth 3D Cameras
It may be a deal-breaker for some, but one of the most distinct features of Find X is its sliding structure that completely disguises the cameras within the body of the phone. When not in use, the cameras are hidden, providing a sleek and uniform exterior. When activated, the camera opens automatically for unlocking and photographing. This up-and-down gives the product movement, a natural and highly functional design. In addition, OPPO’s product team has carried out strict testing on the sliding structure, while it can sense the falling distance and get hidden within the phone, which balance the art design and using durability.
Aside from the 25-megapixel front camera and 16MP+20MP dual rear cameras, it also boasts of a 3D-structured light module with many high-tech components. Flood illuminator, Infrared camera, proximity sensor, Dot projector, Receiver and RGB camera are integrated into this unit. The 3D structured light module in Find X can project 15,000 dots, building a precise and complete 3D module of a user’s face, and then compares with the registered face of the owner to unlock.
#3: O-Face 3D Face Recognition for Security
The 3D Face recognition of O-Face is said to have a higher level of security than fingerprint identification. The false acceptance rate of fingerprint recognition is 1/50,000, while the false acceptance rate of 3D Face Recognition is 1/1,000,000. O-Face Recognition, developed by OPPO, not only makes unlocking safer but also more convenient while offering support for mobile payment. OPPO has already made it possible to pay with O-Face Recognition by integrating Alibaba’s Alipay, making Find X the first Android phone to support payment through face recognition.
#4: 3D Smart Selfie Capture
Powered by 3D structured light, OPPO Find X makes further progress in photography. With high-precision facial data captured and complemented by the 25MP front-facing camera, Find X introduces 3D Smart Selfie Capture. Find X creates a 3D model of the user’s face using O-Face Recognition with millimeter-level accuracy. Based on the resulting 3D model, AI technology intelligently analyzes facial characteristics such as face shapes and features, providing suggestions to make faces look more natural and realistic.
In addition, precise face recognition enables Find X to simulate various lighting effects on a human face, so portraiture lighting is enabled even for a selfie. Various lighting effects are supported including; feature light highlighting the contour of human face, bi-color light that simulates the classic red-blue color of neon, and rim light that brightens the skin color and makes the contour more vivid. Portraiture lighting makes your selfies more beautiful and artistic.
#5: 3D Omoji
As a chatbox-loving millennial, having a personalized “omoji” instead of an emoji also adds up to the reason for us to get one. A user can choose any interesting images to make Omojis or generate your cartoon avatar, and then create video or GIF Emojis. Now, you can use them in any chat app and chat with friends using your personalized Omojis.
Of course, photography has been prioritized once more in this device. With the assistance of AI Scene Recognition, it intelligently identifies scenes and objects while optimizing the image. It supports over 20 scenarios of photography and over 800 scenario combinations including snow, food, pets, and so on.
OPPO is always exploring how to use AI to improve user experience. Based on Android 8.1, OPPO ColorOS 5.1 is deeply integrated with the AIE engine of the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. The AI capability of this arrangement helps ColorOS 5.1 understand user needs better than ever before.
As the third generation of Qualcomm Mobile AI Platform, Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is engineered with every forward-looking feature, including camera and gaming, an intelligent personal assistant and advanced vault-like security. With the brand new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ 685 DSP, enhanced CPU and GPU, Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is stronger, faster and smarter than ever before.
OPPO Find X features the built-in Google Assistant and the smart low-power-consumption MIC with DSP module. This means OPPO Find X can not only identify the magnitude of ambient noise intelligently but can also adjust the performance automatically to ensure high activation success rate. Now, Google Assistant can be on standby all day long!
