The OPPO Find 7 that was launched in 2014 is the last flagship phone from the company. It was speculated that OPPO may launch the OPPO Find 9 or Find 11 to succeed it. However, the company has not released any flagship phone after Find 7. Hence, it seemed that the Chinese manufacturer would never launch a Find series flagship phone as changed its mobile business strategy and concentrated on releasing low budget, mid-range and upper mid-range phones. Today suddenly, OPPO has just confirmed through its Weibo account that it will be launching a new Find series smartphone called Find X.
Shown above is the official Find X poster released by OPPO on its Weibo account. The Weibo post that accompanies it says, “Hi, waited for a long time” which suggests that the company is well aware of the fact that its fans have been eagerly waiting to see a new flagship phone. OPPO has also changed the its Weibo profile logo to Find X which confirms it will be the next major smartphone from the company. The announcement on the existence of the Find X smartphone has come just after the launch of Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition.
At the beginning of the previous month, OPPO had trademarked the OPPO Find X moniker which suggested that it could be an upcoming flagship phone from the company. Also, a leaked render of the smartphone that had appeared in May revealed that it will be equipped with a notched display and a triple camera setup on its rear. As of this writing, there is no information on the specifications of the Find X smartphone.
The image also revealed that the smartphone does not feature a fingerprint scanner. Since the company was recently granted a patent for in-screen fingerprint scanner, it is speculated that this advanced biometric recognition feature might be made available on the OPPO Find X.
Rumors have it that it could be equipped structured light 3D module like Apple iPhone X and Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition for 3D facial recognition. Some of the other features that are expected to arrive on the Find X smartphone include super-fast 15-minute flash charge, 5x lossless zoom and support for 5G connectivity.
