Yesterday, Chinese smartphone maker OPPO launched its latest flagship smartphone, the Find X, in India. While the smartphone’s motorized camera slider has received a mixed response, the O-Face Recognition feature on the Find X is certainly very impressive. The impressive hardware used for the O-Face 3D facial recognition technology also enables the O-Moji feature, which is basically OPPO’s take on the Animoji feature introduced by Apple last year with the iPhone X. OPPO recently released a short commercial in China to highlight the O-Moji feature. The same commercial has now been shared on YouTube.
OPPO Find X: Latest Commercial Highlights O-Moji
As many of you might be aware, the OPPO Find X, which was announced last month, is only the second Android smartphone to feature Face ID-like 3D facial recognition technology. In addition to boasting a highly secure facial recognition solution, the Find X also comes with OPPO’s version of Animated Emojis, dubbed O-Moji. The manufacturer has now released a new commercial that focuses solely on O-Moji. The short commercial shows a group of friends trying to kill boredom by trying out the O-Moji feature at a restaurant. Just like Apple’s Animoji, the various O-Moji characters can mimic your facial expressions, which is what makes them more desirable than regular emojis.
OPPO Find X: Specifications, Features
The OPPO Find X sports a large 6.42-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
