Oppo is coming to the UK, with its top-end Find X, affordable flagship RX17 Pro, and mid-range RX17 Neo launching exclusively to Dixons Carphone in February 2019.
The Chinese brand is a major player in the industry, but has been biding its time for a European launch. The Find X was revealed in Paris in June 2018, followed by the RX17 Pro in Milan in November 2018, waiting a few months longer to reveal its trio of handsets for the UK market.

The Find X is an impressive beast like no other: dual sheets of glass house a mechanical pop-up camera, which ensures the bezel is kept to a minimum. It’s got powerful innards and will be priced £799 when it launched on 13 February 2019 (a couple of hundred less than we were expecting, which keeps it competitive despite its relatively high price).
The RX17 Pro is an interesting prospect: largely similar to the OnePlus 6T – it’s got an in-screen fingerprint scanner and same screen – the Oppo unit comes with a less powerful processor at its core, but with Super VOOC charging (watch our comparison video here – it’s impressive) it’s the fastest phone to recharge that you can buy right now. It, too, will launch on 13 February 2019, priced £549.
The last of the trio is the RX17 Neo, a more mid-range offering that we’ve not seen prior to this launch announcement. It will be priced £319 and also available 13 February.
All three handsets will be available for pre-order from Dixons Carphone (that’s Carphone Warehouse and Curry’s) from 29 January.
