Oppo Find X, the long-time rumored smartphone was finally unveiled by the company yesterday. Many rumors were suggesting that Oppo will be coming with something unexpected and unusual and that proved to be right. Yesterday, the company announced Oppo Find X and launched it exclusively in China. The new smartphone comes with 92.25% screen to body ratio. This makes the Find X among the few smartphones that hold a full-screen display. Surprisingly, Oppo achieved it without using the notch. Oppo took a different approach to incorporate a bigger screen in a smaller body while cutting out the bezel. The Oppo smartphone comes with motorized camera system at the top that only appears when you need it.
Oppo Find X is available only in China, and there is no official information about the global release.
Oppo is known for keeping the design of its smartphones simple yet attractive even its flagship smartphones are non-fancy. However, this time the company went out of its comfort zone and used the new approach to make Find X compelling in looks. The 6.4-inch smartphone comes with front/back glass made out of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The chassis of the phone is supported by a thin layer of the aluminum frame. On the front part, you will see a bezel-less full-screen display that is composed of an OLED panel. There is a very small chin at the bottom of the display. That’s it, you will find only these things on the phone until you open the camera app. Yes, the rear and front cameras reside inside the phone’s body along with the 3D facial scanning system. Oppo used the motorized camera to achieve a higher screen to body ratio. The top of the phone that comprises rear camera at the back and selfie camera along with a 3D scanner at the front slides up quickly when the camera app is active.
The camera system of the Oppo Find X is the highlight of the phone that is located at the top and makes the appearance only when needed. Oppo took a slightly different approach to make bigger display without a bezel. By ditching the trendy notch design, Oppo manages to mechanically operate the camera section that disappears to give a full-screen experience. The camera section of the Oppo smartphone slides up whenever the phone is on, or in case you open the camera app. Once the work is done it slides back into the phone’s chassis, and the backside will be wiped the slate clean. Oppo claims it motorized camera system to slide up in 0.5 seconds. Surprisingly, Find X comes with no in-display unlocking authentication or traditional fingerprint sensor. The Oppo smartphone uses its 3D scanning system to unlock the phone, so every time you swipe up the lock screen the top part will pop up to scan your face and unlock the phone.

Apart from its unique design, the Find X comes with powerful hardware support that outruns many popular flagship smartphones. The Oppo smartphone comprises a 6.4 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. With the help of curved glass and 19.5:9 aspect ratio the display makes an impressive front section that offers 1080 X 2340 pixels resolution. Talking about the internal support of the phone, there is a Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 chipset that is coupled with an Octa-core (4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) processor. The processing unit of the Oppo smartphone is supported by an 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
The camera section of the phone comprised a (16+20MP) rear dual camera that offers Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, and Panorama. Besides, there is a front-facing 25MP powerful selfie booster that slides out with rest of the top section when you need it. Oppo Find X runs on a robust 3750 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery that is strong enough to keep it running for a long time.
Oppo has launched the phone exclusively for China only and said nothing about the global release. However, expect that the Oppo Find X will hit the international market somewhere in August. In China, the phone was launched at CNY 4,500 that is roughly $700.
