There hasn’t been an Oppo Find flagship since the release of Oppo Find 7 back in the spring of 2014. Several leaks have been dropped over the last four years hinting at a new flagship smartphone, and now it seems like those leaks are going to materialise into an actual phone – Oppo Find X.
Oppo uploaded a teaser image on its Weibo profile accompanied by a post which confirms the Find X as its future flagship (via My Smart Price). The company also changed its profile picture to ‘Find X’. This information was reassured by Indian Oppo division on their Twitter post.
Although there haven’t been any major leaks on the Oppo Find X specs or features, the phone is speculated to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset which can be found in most 2018 flagships. It may also have a bezel-less QHD screen with 19:9 aspect ratio, dual camera setup and Oppo’s VOOC fast charging. There is also rumours that it may also an iPhone X-style notch – this notch trend may actually be the future of all smartphones.
The last Oppo Find flagship, Find 7, gave the Chinese company the breakthrough it needed to stand as a top competitor in the smartphone space. The Find 7 featured a QHD 1440p display, also the Oppo’s VOOC fast charging with the ability to charge to 75 percent power within 30 minutes. The major feature was the 13MP rear camera that was capable of shooting 50-megapixel photos.
Although Oppo did release some smartphones over the years, they were mostly mid-range tier, and the latest being the upper mid-range Oppo R15 Pro which ran on Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC.
