You can find the OPPO Find X for RM3699 — the best hidden camera smartphone you can buy?
The OPPO Find X was finally launched in Malaysia, after much fanfare. The later of the two truly bezel-less smartphones, it actually arrived earlier in Malaysia. The OPPO Find X is OPPO’s flagship, and a true inheritor of the innovative spirit of the OPPO Find series. Priced at RM3699, it seems OPPO isn’t shy of their top-tier intentions either.
The OPPO Find X’s main claim to fame is a motorized popup camera. The entire top raises up to reveal the hidden front and rear cameras. While a motorized popup mechanism definitely raises eyebrows regarding its durability, OPPO assures everyone that it will last for up to 5 years of normal use. The above video was taken of a special clear version of the OPPO Find X showcasing the motorized mechanism.
The popup mechanism is home to the dual 16MP + 20MP AI-enhanced rear cameras as well as the 25MP front camera. The front facing camera is also accompanied by the 3D Structured Light module which consists of the flood illuminator, infrared camera and dot projector for the 3D Face Recognition feature.
The rest of the hardware is pretty standard issue for a flagship. We get a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and Android 8.1 Oreo running under OPPO’s proprietary ColorOS 5.1 skin.
Also showcased was the OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition, but there was no local pricing announced. If you haven’t been keeping up with OPPO, the special edition features SuperVOOC, which sports ridiculously 50W charging for a full charge in just 35 minutes. Just insane.
The OPPO Find X can be pre-ordered starting today, at OPPO Concept Stores or online at the Official OPPO website as well as their partners such as Lazada, 11street and Shopee. You can also get it at Celcom Blue Cube and senQ. Pre-order customers will receive an Olike Neo smartwatch worth RM399 too.
What do you think about OPPO’s latest flagship? Does it have enough wow-factor to impress you?
Pokdepinion: I am really curious too about the motorized cameras… Would a dusty environment like our pockets impact the reliability? Or how would cases be designed for the devices?
