The Oppo Find X features pop-up front and rear cameras

The Oppo Find X features pop-up front and rear cameras

Smartphone buyers want full-screen phones but they don't like notches, and so the Oppo Find X takes a different route. But the Find X takes that familiar design and builds on it with the introduction of a retractable motorised panel that keeps the front-facing camera off the screen, eliminating the need to interrupt the area with a controversial notch.

Screen: The Oppo Find X comes with a 6.4-inch 1080p+ OLED display and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 per cent.

The Find X may be unusual on the outside, but inside it's what we've come to expect from a 2018 flagship Android smartphone. Viewers can watch the live stream event below. Instead, the Find X uses 3D facial scanning (similar in concept to the iPhone X's Face ID system) that is mounted next to the selfie camera. Oppo also calls the display a Panoramic Arc Screen, which combines two pieces of glass with the front display to create a panoramic view effect.

The display has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. At the back, it features a dual camera setup having a 20MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 16MP secondary sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera is a 25-megapixel shooter.

The special version of the Find X includes SuperVOOC, which will charge the phone's battery to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.

This approach has allowed Oppo to yield a screen to body ratio of 92.25 percent which should make the otherwise big phone easy to hold in one hand.

The Find X will sell globally in August, unlike past Oppo devices, which have been limited to Asia.

The English Football Association has agreed to a similar version of its official flag after being approached by Cunningham and the Three Lions Pride group she leads.

Another interesting fact is that Find X has no fingerprint sensor.

The company has also tied up with Lamborghini to launch a special edition smartphone at 1699 euros for the 512 GB variant with Super Vooc charging technology.

As far as internals, the unit will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, pack 8GB RAM, have 256GB of internal storage, and a 3,730mAh battery. Also, the official Oppo India Twitter account has been teasing the launch in the country as well from past few days.

The OPPO Find X will be available in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue color options. But there is a lot more to the Find X than meets the eye. The Find X is also eligible for Android P Beta.

We are very much impressed with what OPPO has done design-wise, but the whole phone has to work, doesn't it? That's around USD$700 pricier than the standard Find X, which is already pricey to begin with. OPPO says the Find X Automobili Lamorghini Edition will cost €1,699, though no dates have been given for launch.

The OPPO Find X without a doubt delivers the most immersive mobile viewing experience on the market, which is a good reason to be interested in it, but how it performs in the real-world remains untested.
