Oppo shows Apple how to eliminate iPhone’s notch with style

With the Find X, OPPO is aiming to go global as the smartphone will be sold in North America and Europe.

Oppo Find X does not come with a fingerprint scanner.

Oppo Find X flaunts a tall 6.4-inch dual curved edge-to-edge AMOLED display with 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution. After the Vivo Nex, the Oppo Find X is another full-screen smartphone with an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 percent. To avoid using a notch, the smartphone has a motorized camera mechanism that hides the front and rear cameras when not in use. The Oppo Find X ships running Google's Android 8.1 OS, which has been loaded with its custom Color OS 5.1 skin that brings with it iPhone-style "3D Omoji".

We are very much impressed with what OPPO has done design-wise, but the whole phone has to work, doesn't it? The special edition smartphone will have a textured carbon fiber back with a Lamborghini logo etched in, and also Super VOOC charging support out-of-the-box. Oppo says all of this happens in less than 0.5 seconds so that you won't ever have to wait.

On its own, the Oppo Find X is an expensive device - Oppo said it will cost 999 Euro when it's released in August, or about $1,158.

The Oppo Find X (announced Tuesday) has a screen that stretches from the very top of the phone, wraps around the sides and goes nearly to the very bottom (the phone has a thin bottom bezel, aka a "chin").

Oppo has also followed in the footsteps of Huawei and LG's flagships by offering AI Scene recognition for photographs which supports over 20 different scenarios, including food and pets. It is powered by 2.5GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The smartphone features a pop-up camera, which it calls stealth 3D camera.

The design of the Oppo Find X is the focal point of this device, with Oppo stating during its launch event that it believes in lovely design that can still offer useful functionality. It's hidden when the phone is off or the camera app is closed, and when you turn on the Find X, the top section of the phone pops up to reveal a 25-megapixel front-facing camera, complete with a 3D facial scanning system. As mentioned, the camera slider is has tested over 300,000 times for durability.

The OPPO Find X Lamborghini Edition comes with 512GB of storage and it will be priced at 1,699 Euro which is about RM7,881. Along with that, the Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition also sports a massive 512GB of storage. There is also support for 3D emojis similar to iPhone X ones.

Metal and glass are the materials of choice on the Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X. Both handsets have glass front and rears, which sandwich a metal frame. It consists of a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, OIS and f/2.0 aperture, and a 20-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture.
