OPPO Find X apparently not coming to the US after all
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.
