OPPO PAHM00 receives 3C certification in China, expected to be an affordable Find X variant

After getting certified by TENAA, OPPO PAHM00 has now received 3C certification in China.


A few weeks back, we saw an unannounced OPPO smartphone carrying the model number PAHM00 on the popular Geekbench benchmark database. A few days after the Geekbench listing, the device was certified by TENAA in China, revealing a design nearly identical to the company’s latest flagship, the Find X. The smartphone has now received 3C certification as well in China, suggesting that it could soon be made official.

OPPO PAHM00: 3C Certification Granted

Unlike TENAA, 3C does not reveal many interesting details regarding new devices on its website. The PAHM00 3C certification only tells us that the device is manufactured by OPPO and supports TD-LTE. It also reveals the smartphone will come with 10V 5A Super VOOC fast charging support. The only smartphone with Super VOOC charging announced by OPPO so far is the Find X Automobil Lamborghini Edition. Rest of the Find X variants only come with regular VOOC Flash Charge technology.

OPPO PAHM00: Leaked Specifications, Features

As we mentioned above, the OPPO PAHM00 appears to have a design nearly identical to the Find X. In terms of hardware specs, the only details that have been revealed so far include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and 8GB of RAM. We haven’t seen many new devices powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset recently, so it could be possible that OPPO may be trying to save costs by using the older chipset. This could mean that the PAHM00 will be priced significantly lower than the Find X, offering a similar innovative design. The rest of the key specifications remain a mystery for now, so we may have to wait at least a few more days to learn more about the other key differences between the Find X and PAHM00.

OPPO Find X: Specifications, Features

The OPPO Find X features a 6.42-inch AMOLED Panoramic Arc Screen with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Even though there is no notch at the top, the Find X boasts an incredible 93.8% screen-to-body ratio thanks to a motorized slider top that houses both the front- and rear-facing cameras. Under the hood, OPPO Find X runs on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with an Adreno 630 GPU. The smartphone packs 8GB of RAM and comes in 128GB and 256GB storage variants.

On the back of the smartphone is a 16MP + 20MP dual-camera setup with optical image stabilization and AI-powered features like an AI Portrait Mode and AI Scene Recognition. On the front is a 25MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture and AI-powered beautification for selfies. The Find X is also among the few Android flagships to come with 3D facial recognition. It also packs a 3730mAh capacity battery with VOOC Flash Charge technology and a USB Type-C port. The smartphone runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.1.
