OPPO Find X set to launch on June 19 in Paris


OPPO has officially confirmed that it will be unveiling its flagship Find X smartphone on June 19. The Chinese smartphone maker will announce the device at an event in Paris, France at 20:45 (12:15 AM IST). A few days back, OPPO hinted at the return of this flagship series to the market, intimating us that the launch will be happening soon. Apart from the teaser published on Weibo last week, OPPO had also teased the launch of the Find X in India, suggesting that the device will be launched in India as well.

Going by the details known so far, the OPPO Find X might offer a glass build at the rear with a textured finish. The phone is supposed to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC, as per the details leaked by an infamous leakster on Weibo. However, we also can expect the device to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 or the Snapdragon 710 chipset. The smartphone could pack either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and might come with 256GB of internal storage. The Find X is also believed to sport a taller bezel-less screen that might have a 19:9 aspect ratio.

The handset is even supposed to offer optical 5x zoom camera technology, which OPPO had announced at the MWC 2018 exhibition earlier this year. The Find X might also use OPPO’s VOOC fast charging technology. These are the only details revealed as of now about the upcoming smartphone in the past few days. It has been almost four years since OPPO had debuted its last flagship handset under the Find series, the OPPO Find 7, announced in March 2014.

OPPO Find X: Competition

Considering the competition in the Chinese market, the OPPO Find X can give a tough fight to the Huawei P20, OnePlus 6, and the newly announced Mi 8. The device, if released in the international market, will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9, LG V35 ThinQ, and the Honor 10. While there are many days left for the launch of the device, we can expect OPPO to reveal some details about the phone in the coming days. Meanwhile, we recommend you to stay tuned with us, as we will be covering the event, and will let you know the pricing and availability of the handset in India.
