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

It looks fantastic, but is there enough substance behind the screen to make the Oppo Find X more than just a two-trick pony?

The official reveal of the Oppo Find X in Paris had a major surprise at the end of its press event. This is because Oppo had previously launched a device called N1, which was considered as "one of the most innovative phones of its time". But here we are. Oppo says its design for the Find X means the handset can boast a screen-to-body ratio of 92.25%. The back of the device features rounded glass as well, which should make handling a bit easier, although its high-gloss finish might be a point of concern for some.

After launching a few budget devices without a fingerprint sensor, the company now made a decision to leave out the fingerprint sensor even on its latest flagship smartphone. After all, this is going to be a flagship-level smartphone from the company. The entire assembly would come out of the phone's chassis when the camera app is opened, and will simply squeeze back into place when the app is closed. OPPO is instead betting big on facial-recognition; there's a small 3D scanner baked into the front-facing camera that starts working as soon as the tray begins to rise, authenticating you before it's even finished emerging.The camera setup itself is made up of three sensors: one on the front (25-megapixel) and two on the rear (20-megapixel + 16-megapixel). Around front, there's a single 25MP selfie camera.

It's undeniably inventive stuff that arguably one-ups the Vivo NEX's motorized camera. But at least Oppo did not promise us a bezelless smartphone. Cue the OPPO N3.

On the inside, the Find X is packing a flagship Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.




Coming to other leaked specifications, the Oppo Find X will have a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.

There will be a few storage options on the Find X, with the largest option being 256GB, providing plenty of space for your apps, games, photos and more. Oppo claims that the 3,400mAh battery on this phone would take 90 minutes to fully charge with the company's standard VOOC charging tech. It will sell for an eye-watering €1,699 (P104,887 or $1,968).

"The Find X will be available to order in China starting today, and it should cost less than other comparably equipped Android smartphones", says The Verge report.
