Oppo Find X: Design
The Oppo Find X would be available in two color variants, namely the Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. The smartphone has a bezel-less display with a small chin, and 3D facial scanning as the chief method of unlocking the smartphone, as there is no fingerprint scanner onboard.
Oppo Find X smartphone has a nice shiny metal back with curved edges and no camera sensors up front or at the back. Instead, there is a motorized slider that opens and closes automatically whenever the users open or closes the camera app. Once the phone is turned on and the lock screen is swiped on, the camera slider comes up to scan the face. As mentioned, the camera slider is claimed to have been tested over 300,000 times for durability. The slider also consists of a dual camera setup at the rear end and a single front camera. The front is all display, with a slight Galaxy S9-like curve around the side edges.
Oppo Find X: Features
This time, Oppo has introduced a unique facial scanning technology called the O-Face Recognition on the Find X. This is enabled by a 3D Structured Light Technology that the company claims has never been used on any Android smartphone. This technology uses 15,000 facial dot recognition and intelligent analysis to read a face. There is also an IR sensor that lets O-Face work in the dark as well. Oppo claims that this O-Face Recognition is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone.
Oppo’s AI-assisted sensor also brings animated 3D emojis, similar to the one seen on the iPhone X. The company is calling this 3D Omoji, which lets users choose a funny image or create a personal cartoon image to mimic user facial expression in real time.
