After launching the OPPO Find 7 smartphone in 2014, OPPO has never released a new Find series phone. The company seems to be focused more on selling Oppo R, F and A series smartphones. The Chinese manufacturer had reportedly trademarked “OPPO Find X” moniker in the previous month. This suggests that the company could be prepping up to launch a new Find series flagship smartphone.
A recent market research has shown that the worldwide smartphone shipments have declined as the Chinese smartphone market has encountered slowdown in Q1 this year. Another report has revealed that Xiaomi has dethroned OPPO to gain the fourth largest smartphone brand in the world. In the recent past, OPPO has mainly concentrated on launching low-budget, mid-tier and upper mid-range phone. Since the company has recently trademarked the OPPO Find X name, it is being speculated that it could be working on a flagship phone.
The successor of the OPPO Find 7 was expected to debut as OPPO Find 9. The probable reason why the company may launch Find X instead of Find 9 is that it could be arriving with topnotch specs.
A leaked invitation of an upcoming OPPO event has surfaced been recently spotted on Weibo. It reveals that the event will be mainly centered on 5G connectivity and 3D structured light technology. If the OPPO Find X releases this year, it may not carry support for 5G, but is may feature 3D structured light for 3D facial recognition. In the recent past, OPPO has demonstrated its advanced technologies such as super-fast 15-minute flash charge and 5x lossless zoom. The Chinese company is has also recently filed patent for in-display fingerprint scanner. There is a possibility that the OPPO Find X may arrive with all these advanced features.
