Oppo found a really creative way to kill the smartphone 'notch'

Oppo found a really creative way to kill the smartphone 'notch'

The Chinese manufacturer may not be as big in the U.S. as the other popular brands, but OPPO is the same company that owns OnePlus, so that might be a point of reference. The 3D facial recognition technology called O-Face uses the flood illuminator, Infrared camera, ranging sensor, receiver, dot projector, and front camera to make it more secure than the fingerprint sensor.

If money is no object, would you get the OPPO Find X Lamborghini or the Porsche Design Mate RS?

But that's not all, as both the Oppo Find X and Vivo Nex also boast novelty pop-up cameras, helping to add to their futuristic look and feel. Now, as to how they dealt with the notch, that is truly something special. Movements up and down take half a second, The Verge reports from its hands-on session. While the pop-up mechanism is no doubt intriguing, it would be prone to breaking after a few [inevitable] drops - especially if you drop the device with the camera module in the open position.

The Find X has a mechanized sliding tray that houses a 16 + 20MP dual-camera setup for the back and a single 25MP selfie shooter for the front. But the Find X stands out with its unique mechanism for the cameras as they are hidden at the top panel.

The rest of the specs, you're probably already familiar with at this point: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with global LTE band support, in addition to 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage; 3,730mAh battery with VOOC fast charging; and heavily skinned Android 8.1 Oreo. You can basically throw any app at it and it won't flinch. If the Find X stumbles when it runs Android 8.1 Oreo, we can't blame the hardware. The software system also provides for gesture navigation from the edges, if you're used to that. It's been revamped, the company says, to suit the "Panoramic Arc Screen" but we'd forgive you if you mistook it for iOS.

A Saudi Arabia statement said: "All the Saudi national team players have arrived safely and now are staying in their residence". Their first match was also the tournament opener and they were thrashed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation .

But as The Verge notes, mechanical components like a sliding camera module could pose issues with water resistance, durability, and longevity of the device. That's fairly quick and hopefully won't get in the way if you need to take a quick shot (i.e. your kids when they do something unexpected or cute). Innovative it surely is, but we hope it is built to last. There's a 3730mAh battery.

The Find X begins shipping in August in certain regions for the price of £999 or an estimated of P70,152.50.

Just went I felt uncomfortable enough with the Samsung Galaxy's iris scanner, along comes Oppo wanting us to holds its beer. Oppo also claims that its "O-Face Recognition is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone". The box and charging cable come in striking bright yellow which is inspired from the Aventador.

The Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X will also have an updated storage with a massive 512GB of on-board storage.
