You can now pre-order OPPO’s latest phones at Carphone Warehouse.
Xiaomi made its debut in the UK just two months ago, and now fellow Chinese phone manufacturer OPPO is bringing its latest devices to the country. At a launch event in London, OPPO announced that it is launching the Find X as well as the RX17 Pro and RX17 Neo in the UK, with all phones up for sale exclusively at Carphone Warehouse.
The Find X will be available in the UK for £799 ($1,018), with the device featuring a unique mechanised slider that hides both front and rear cameras. You get a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel with a layer of Gorilla Glass 5, Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, 16MP + 20MP cameras at the back, 25MP front camera, and a 3730mAh battery.
OPPO will be looking to go after Xiaomi in the UK.
The RX17 Pro, meanwhile, features a gorgeous gradient pattern at the back, and is powered by a Snapdragon 710. The phone has a 6.4-inch display along with a waterdrop cutout, 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage, three cameras at the back with a 12MP primary sensor joined by a 20MP module and a TOF 3D camera, 25MP front shooter, and 3700mAh battery.
Interestingly, the RX17 Pro offers SuperVOOC flash charging that lets you charge the battery from flat to 40% in just 10 minutes. You’ll be able to get your hands on the RX17 Pro in the UK for £549 ($700).
Finally, the RX17 Neo is the mid-range option, offering a 6.41-inch display, Snapdragon 660, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, dual 16MP + 2MP cameras at the back, 25MP front shooter, and a 3600mAh battery. The phone is going on sale for £319 ($405).
OPPO’s debut in the UK is part of a broader push into Western markets, with the company now selling its devices in France, Spain, and Italy as well as a host of other European countries. Sales in the UK will kick off from February 13, with all three phones now up for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse.
