Cameraphone manufacturer OPPO has a new flagship device. The Find X global reveal will be at the world-famous Paris Louvre Museum on 19th June. And GadgetGuy will be there to report.

The Find series has always been known for pushing the boundaries of what smartphones are capable of and pioneering new designs. The Find X brings new smartphone technology but also new smartphone aesthetics.

“We are really looking forward to bringing the latest device in the Find series to Australia. The Find X will go beyond the normal features offered on the market and deliver a whole new experience to customers, incorporating OPPO innovations and design concepts into the device,” said Michael Tran, Executive Director at OPPO.

“As always, OPPO will ensure the device offers customers amazing value, in addition to the flagship features. Our previous Find devices have been well received by savvy Aussies looking for the latest in smartphone technology, and we expect the Find X will take the series to the next level.”

So, what is a Find X?

Sorry, we don’t know the details yet. You can be certain it will have some ground-breaking camera technology (will we see the fabled periscope zoom?) and a distinct style. Heavens knows why its called a Find X – perhaps a reference to Apple eat my dust.

And the Find heritage

In 2014 I witnessed the launch of OPPO in Australia. It kindly gave me a Find 7 with a 5.5” Quad HD, 2560 x 1440 and a Qualcomm 801 ‘powerhouse’ processor. It was so far ahead of anything I had seen. I wrote: “It puts the current flagship leader Samsung Galaxy S5 to shame”.

It even had a $300 price advantage over the Samsung and Apple. What more could you ask for?

Stay tuned for live coverage on 19 June.
