Chinese smartphone maker OPPO on Thursday launched its flagship smartphone “Find X” in India for Rs 59,990. It has the world’s first stealth 3D cameras with Artificial Intelligence (AI) infused into it and a sliding structure that nearly mirrors the way a semi-DSLR camera works.

The new stealth design includes a flood illuminator, an infrared camera, a ranging sensor, a receiver, a front camera, a dot projector and a rear dual-camera.

With the sliding structure of the camera, the whole system automatically stretches out when unlocked or when a user is taking photos. It will retract if it is not in use.

The pre-order for the 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage device will begin on Flipkart on July 30 and the smartphone will be available from August 3.

“The ‘Find’ series represents OPPO’s innovative spirit that believes that a smartphone isn’t just a communication tool but also a piece of art,” said Charles Wong, OPPO’s Assistant Vice President and OPPO India President.

“‘Find X’ aims to offer our Indian consumers a premium, innovative and technologically advanced offering for an advanced smartphone experience,” added Wong who is responsible for building the company’s momentum in the domestic market.

The month should also be a celebration of encouraging the women in our lives to take the first step in this journey of staying in "Pink of Health". happen, an international dating app, conducted an in-app survey to understand how Indians discuss health issues like breast cancer with their partners. The survey gave a glimpse of whether health issues are impacting the life and relationships of singles.

41 per cent of users are not aware of examinations related to women's health

Forty-one per cent of users shared that they did not encourage the women in their life (mother, sister, friend, etc.) to go for checkups for issues related to health. Sixteen per cent of the respondents confessed that they did not remind women in their life to take examinations for their own health.
