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

The official reveal of the Oppo Find X in Paris had a major surprise at the end of its press event. Oppo has integrated a tiny motorized mechanism into the top panel of the Find X to incorporate a notch less all screen design.

On the inside, the Find X is packing a flagship Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The Indian-specific launch has been scheduled for July 12.

"OPPO's relentless efforts in creating smartphones that push the boundaries led to the creation of the Find Series".

Oppo gave the Find X's front camera 3D face scanning to take better selfies and unlock your phone, though we're not certain yet how secure the face unlocking feature is at this point.

The front of the phone will be fully dominated by the display, while the rear side of the phone will also be covered by glass, which could pave the way for wireless charging.

The front is dominated by a 6.42-inch AMOLED display, so you might be asking yourself, where is the front-facing camera?

The handset offers 8GB of RAM and comes in two storage variants - 256GB and 512GB.

On the camera front, Oppo Find X features a dual rear setup- 16-megapixel primary lens + 20-megapixel secondary lens. It comes with a 3730mAh battery and supports Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology.

This approach has allowed Oppo to yield a screen to body ratio of 92.25 percent which should make the otherwise very large phone easy to hold in one hand. Coming to the pricing, the OPO Find X with 256GB storage and VOOC flash charge technology is priced at Euro 999 (approx $1156 / Rs 79,000).

Oppo also announced the Find X Lamborgini Edition, with faster Super VOOC charging. The all-new Find X has been in the rumors mills from last few months. Oppo also mentions the phone will ship to customers in August of this year, though it does not elaborate on whether or not this includes both Europe and North America together or just Europe. The Find X is also eligible for Android P Beta. The device has two gradient color combinations - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. OPPO says the Find X Automobili Lamorghini Edition will cost €1,699, though no dates have been given for launch.

OPPO's true flagship phone is about to make its debut in the next couple of hours, and while there seems to be no embargo for the media, The Verge has done a hands on video on the device which we finally have the opportunity to see how the phone looks like in real life. This technology uses 15,000 nit facial dot recognition which Oppo boasts is 20 times safer than using a fingerprint. We do know it's in line for a global release with Oppo entering four European countries (Spain, France, Italy and the Netherlands) from June 19 with plans to expand to more in the future.
