OPPO Launches a phone almost as expensive as the iPhone X in Pakistan

OPPO entered the Pakistani smartphone arena only a few years ago and has established itself as one of the known smartphone brands in the country.

The company has mostly marketed its phones in Pakistan as ‘selfie phones’ with very high-end cameras installed on the front of the screens.

However, this time OPPO has challenged the top tier phones in Pakistan such as the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

OPPO has just launched its flagship phone ‘Find X’ with a whopping RS.129,999 price tag in the country. The phone was launched today at a grand ceremony held in Lahore.


What makes OPPO Find X special

At a price tag of RS.129,999 which directly rivals iPhone X’s 130,000 – 140,000 price tag, you must be wondering what makes this phone so special?

OPPO’s Find X has every high-end hardware specification you would expect from a high-end phone. But what really is setting it apart from the rest of the competition are two things.

Firstly, the Find X is the only phone available in the world right now with a 93.8% body-to-screen ratio. That’s right, the front of the phone is essentially all screen. This means that there is no notch on the front, no camera, no speaker grill, absolutely nothing else except the screen.

How does OPPO cater for a 93.8% body-to-screen ratio? The company has added a small tray on the top of the phone which pops up to reveal the phone cameras.

A small motor powers the tray which pushes it above the phone when you need the camera.

On top of that, OPPO has also added an ‘Ultra-Secure’ 3D Face unlock with 15,000 data points that map your facial features.

In some tests by reviewers outside Pakistan, the Face Unlock is actually a tad bit faster than that of iPhone X.
