If you think the “downsizing” in automotive industry is bad, think about the smartphone industry. Not sure if we can call it “worse”, but the smartphone makers are downsizing the bezels for a larger screen real estate.
So much so that some manufacturers are coming up with motorized moving parts to hide the cameras and sensors. One such phone is Oppo Find X. The Chinese smartphone maker has teamed up with the Italian supercar maker for Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini Special Edition. The duo chose Louvre in Paris for the unveiling.
Oppo created this ridiculous ‘Find X’, where the entire top section is a motorized movable part which hides both front and rear cameras as well as face recognition sensors. The top section has to slide-open even for unlocking the phone. According to Oppo, it lasts up to 300,000+ times.
The special edition phone has gloss carbon fibre texture on the back, and an engraved Automobili Lamborghini logo which has a suspended three-dimensional effect.
Also, the Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition is equipped with SuperVOOC flash charge which according to the company, used for the first time in a smartphone. This technology enables the charge power to reach 50W, allowing the smartphone to fully charge in 35 minutes.
The packaging and accessories for this special edition have been designed in the same orange and black colors of Lamborghini cars.
“With Oppo’s admirable technology capability and design prowess, we look forward to building a broad and strategic partnership,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The launch of the Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini Special Edition in Paris marks the beginning of this enterprise.”
“Oppo and Lamborghini both share core company values such as the relentless pursuit of perfection in product design and user experience,” said Tony Chen, CEO of Oppo. “We’re excited about the partnership and strongly believe that the synergy in advanced technologies, design philosophies and innovations will help bring to market products that will surprise and delight our customers worldwide.”
