Say hello to the new Vivo X21, featuring an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 660 chip, along with 6GB of RAM for multi-tasking and a generous 128GB of storage expandable with a microSD card.

At that time, it sparked a lot of interest, thanks to their new in-display fingerprint scanning technology, the first in the world. Here in the Philippines, the brand is known mostly for its budget and mid-range offerings such as its current forerunner, the V9. So it came as a surprise when they announced that they’ll be bringing the X21 to the local market. Perhaps, testing the waters? Anyhow, we were able to spend some time with the device, and here’s what we think. Vivo X21 Specs Design and Build Quality On the surface, the X21 looks a lot like the V9, especially on the display part.

As if the Find X itself wasn’t enough, OPPO took things a notch further with an even more premium variant in partnership with luxury car maker, Lamborghini – Say hello to the OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition. Apart from the automotive-inspired carbon fiber wrap design, this one shares mostly the same specs with the regular edition – A 6.4-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution, a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, and the new motorized popup mechanism for the front and rear cameras, both of which are AI-assisted. Where it’s different though, is in two key things. Storage and Charging. While I’m pretty sure that 256GB of storage should be more than enough for most users, this one has double that. You get 512GB of space. The other thing is that this version of the Find X can charge itself to full.. in 35 minutes. That’s thanks to OPPO’s Super VOOC…

Remember the OPPO N3? the one with the rotating camera? that was a first. And now, after all those teasers, OPPO has finally unveiled its newest flagship, which seems to have been inspired by the idea, and made even better. Meet the new OPPO Find X. On most parts, the Find X is your typical flagship Android Smartphone , boasting skyrocketing figures – It has a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Design-wise, you get a glossy finish, which has become a trend on the brand’s recent devices,  a Type-C port, and no headphone jack. It also doesn’t have any IP certification for water and dust resistance. Where this phone establishes its own identity though, is in two key things – starting with the display. Like Vivo’s NEX S, the Find X ditches the notch, leading to a 6.4-inch OLED display with FHD resolution and an…

These days, Power banks are already a staple in just about everyone’s bag. From the one who casually roams around the city to take photos, to the gamer who’s glued to the screen for hours on end. It has become an intangible tool for a digital lifestyle. As such, companies are still trying to innovate with these things. Making them slimmer, packing more juice, and carrying more features than ever before. The ASUS ZenPower 10050C QC 3.0 is a perfect example of such. As the name implies, the new version now has a USB Type-C port, and features Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, which means compatible devices should charge significantly faster than before. Packaging ASUS sticks to a minimal packaging here. With only a small box which contains the unit, a Warranty Card, a User Manual, and a Type-C cable. Unlike the previous version, it doesn’t come with a sleeve.…

Not only is it priced well at PhP11,990, but it offers features that you just wouldn’t expect from a device with that price tag. Perhaps the two most notable things from this phone is that it’s powered by a Snapdragon 636, that’s the same chip that runs on more expensive mid-rangers. And guess what? You also get AI-assisted cameras. Were there compromises? How does the phone fare? Let’s find that out in this full review.

As the unveiling of the OPPO Find X draws closer, more details are surfacing online about the upcoming device (as always). This time, it’s about the display. Another teaser poster was seen in the company’s official Weibo account, showing a percentage with two blank spaces in the middle. The first number is 9, which confirms that the phone will have a screen to body ratio of at least 90%! That’s indeed a feat to be proud of. Another thing to take note of is the image just below it. If this is anything like how the real phone will look like, we might be looking at a notch-less display, like Vivo’s NEX S. So how about the front cam? well, we’ll see. Excited? don’t worry, we only have a few more days before June 19, where the phone will be officially unveiled. Source

OPPO has released a teaser on its Weibo account for its much-anticipated flagship, the Find X, revealing some of the device’s key specifications, and this one’s shaping up to be one powerhouse. According to the teaser, the Find X will run on top-tier flagship specs –  a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, along with 8GB of RAM, and a hefty 256GB of storage.  As for the rest of the specs, the device is rumored to sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, a 20MP + 16MP dual rear camera system, a 25MP front snapper, and a 3,645mAh battery, which I’d presume, comes with fast-charging technology. In any case, it won’t be long before we’ll find out if all of the above is true, as the OPPO Find X is scheduled to be unveiled on June 19, 2018. Source

For years, OPPO has been continuously introducing breakthrough technologies to the smartphone industry. Most of which will most likely define the future devices that the company will create. 5x Dual Camera Zoom If you’ll recall, OPPO announced its exclusive 5x Dual Camera Zoom at MWC 2017 in Barcelona.

This new construction also benefits dual-camera performance and at the same time, allows the device to be as thin as possible.
