News is spreading like wildfire that the ultra-premium and innovative OPPO Find X, which was promised to the U.S. market at launch, won’t arrive stateside after all. It will likely, however, arrive in the Philippines sooner rather than later.
In fact, OPPO Philippines has begun teasing the Android flagship on the company’s official Facebook page. Earlier today, a render of the Find X was posted on the social media platform with the caption, “Find more, soon with the #OPPOFindX,” hinting at the device’s impending local launch. We’re also hearing murmurs of a July or August announcement from different industry sources.
The OPPO Find X, as you may have heard, is the firm’s most ambitious and specced-out product yet. It boasts a laundry list of notable features, including the fastest Qualcomm processor available thus far and a nearly all-screen front that stretches the curved OLED panel from side to side and top to bottom. But its calling card is its motorized sliding cameras that only appear when needed — a genuine conversation starter if we ever saw one.
At OPPO’s global press event, it was announced that the top-of-the-line version of the Find X with 256GB of built-in storage will sell in Europe for €999 (about P62,292 or $1,165) in August.
Here’s where things could get extra interesting for consumers. OPPO also said that different configurations of the smartphone exist during the OPPO Find X unveiling, suggesting there may be a variant with a slower processor — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 comes to mind — and 128GB storage or less.

If true, that handset should come with a more palatable price tag here, in the same way the Snapdragon 710 version of the Vivo NEX costs ¥3,898 (P31,645 or $591) in the Chinese market. By contrast, the Snapdragon 845-based NEX will run you ¥4,998 (P40,575 or $758). It’s certainly a possibility, especially given that price is often the key decision driver in this country.
