Oppo Find X sports a bezel-free design with pop-up cameras

The official reveal of the Oppo Find X in Paris had a major surprise at the end of its press event.

The biggest highlight of the OPPO Find X is its innovative pop-up cameras to offer the all-screen front.

The Oppo Find X comes with a great deal of power under the hood, with the flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset sitting alongside 8GB of RAM. The company has now revealed that the Find X will be launched in India on July 12. This is a pretty significant breakthrough, and Oppo appears to be going all in on it, as the Find X does not have a fingerprint sensor. 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. As the name suggests, this variant has been made in collaboration with Lamborghini and also sports its logo on the rear panel. The smartphone is said to have a 6.3-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. For the camera department, the device will sport a dual rear camera setup with 20-megapixel and 16-megapixel sensors and a 25-megapixel front camera.

It's worth noting that Oppo isn't the first hardware maker to try hiding a front camera within the body: last week, Vivo debuted the Nex, which features a smaller pop-up camera at the top of the device body.

There's a sizable 3,730mAh battery sealed inside the Find X, and it features Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology allowing you to give it a quick blast before heading out the door, via the USB-C port. Hopefully, the flagship phone will be launched here in Malaysia in the near future.

The Oppo Find X is backed with a 3730mAh battery.

Aside from the motorised camera system, the Find X doesn't have any fingerprint sensor. Along with this, the company has also included AR stickers in the camera. Other than its powerful array of specs, it is the placement of cameras on the Find X that took the limelight. "The Find X continues this trend and has delivered new innovations that will resonate with Aussie consumers and challenge the status quo in the Australian smartphone market".

The Oppo Find X is a striking handset. It may be available in two colour options, Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. Even if you're careful with how you handle it, there's a good chance that the Find X's sliding camera array could be a place where dust and grit want to congregate in your pocket. The fact that the phone supports global LTE bands and will be sold in the United States and Europe - a first for Oppo - adds credence to the fact that Oppo isn't looking for China exclusivity with the Find X. Oppo says the "Y" design on the box comes from the auto light found on the Lamborghini Aventador vehicle. The result is the Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini phone, a fancier version of the Android handset.
