Launching a new Find X Super Flash edition that uses SuperVOOC charging times to 35 minutes, the feature is also available on the ultra premium OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Limited Edition.
iTWire originally covered news the Find X when it launched in June at a global event, and then when it finally launched in Australia at $1099 (with this article including the launch video), a price much lower than flagships from Samsung and Apple, but still more than the usual price points for OPPO's smart camera phones.
Now comes news that a new model of the flagship Find X, with SuperVOOC, will have SuperVOOC flash charging, dubbed "the world’s fastest charging technology", as well as the new OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Limited Edition.
This Super Flash Find X model will retail for $1,299 – $200 more than the standard Find X.
OPPO Australia managing directot Michael Tran said: “We’re really excited to bring SuperVOOC to Australian shores in the latest version of the Find X. SuperVOOC is the fastest charging technology on the market today and ensures Aussies can stay fully charged throughout the day.
“This new device again showcases OPPO’s relentless efforts to create smartphones that push boundaries and deliver technologies, features and designs that challenge the status quo. We look forward to continuing to innovate and create devices that meet the needs of Australians in an always-on, fast paced world.”
OPPO has also upgraded the performance of the Find X in its latest edition, by "upping the ROM to 256GB", which phone companies need to learn is the wrong description. ROM stands for read-only memory, and 256GB of ROM would be useless. What Oppo means is that it has upgraded its storage capability to 256GB, and that you most certainly can read and write to this storage medium.
Coupled with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 and 8GB RAM, OPPO says its "Find X Super Flash edition offers more power, performance and speed than ever before".
The Find X Super Flash edition includes all the other features, technology and design from the Find X including:
- Stealth 3D Cameras – 25MP front camera and 16MP+20MP dual rear cameras that are hidden within the body of the phone.
- 3D Facial Recognition – builds a 3D model of a user’s face for better selfies and a higher level of security than fingerprint identification.
- ColorOS5.1 AI System based on Android 8.1 – as the third generation of Qualcomm Mobile AI Platform, Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is engineered with every forward-looking feature, including camera, gaming, an intelligent personal assistant and advanced vault-like security.
In addition, OPPO has also announced it will be bringing the OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Limited Edition to Australia. The OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Limited Edition is designed to have the same look as the design widely used in Lamborghini sports cars, and comes with a customised UI, SuperVOOC and 512GB of ROM – again, OPPO means 512GB of storage, and decidedly NOT any kind of ROM or "read-only memory", and it will retail for just under $2000 at $1998, although if you voluntarily pay a dollar extra, you can party like it's $1999.
OPPO is offering customers the chance to win one through a social competition. Further details can be found here.
The lucky winner will will have their device delivered by Lamborghini and given the chance to go for a 35-minute hot lap (presumably while their Find X full charges).
The OPPO Find X with SuperVOOC Flash Charging is available now exclusively through JB Hi-Fi and will retail for $1299.
The OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Limited Edition will be available through JB Hi-Fi and Mobileciti for $1998 next week.
