OPPO Find X apparently not coming to the US after all

There was word last week that OPPO's new Find X was billed to be sold in the US. Unfortunately, that is unlikely to be the case, as OPPO isn't interested in going through the hurdles of selling the device in the US just yet. The Find X will be available in Europe, though.

OPPO launched its new Find X flagship last week. The device has garnered a lot of media attention for its mechanical camera slide design, and has been hailed for bringing a new edge to the industry. Reports at launch claimed OPPO was keen on bringing the Find X to the US but it would seem that may be dead in the water.

According to a tweet by Sascha Segan of PCMag, OPPO has decided that bringing the Find X to the US isn't viable at the moment. That's not particularly surprising, in any case, as we've seen companies like Huawei fail completely at any venture into the world's third-largest smartphone market.

While the Find X may not be coming to the US, it will be available in Europe like other OPPO devices. The tweet also specifies the US, so there's a chance the device makes its way into other North American markets, Canada especially.

Earlier reports had the Find X as penned down to carry a  US$1,000 price tag, and the chances of the device gaining any sort of commercial traction with an MSRP like that were always low.
