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

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

The major specifications of the phone were interestingly revealed ahead of the launch in the form of a leak and a hands-on video. It still is unsure whether this variant will be launched in India or not, but an event is scheduled for July 12 where we expect to get more details.

When activated, the camera on the Oppo Find X pops-up and recognises the face and unlocks the device.

"We're excited to be announcing our latest device in the OPPO Find Series and we look forward to bringing it to the Australian market". The sliding mechanism also means you can never put a protective case on the Oppo Find X, which may not always be the best idea if you're a member of the fellowship of fallen phones (it also means the phone isn't water-resistant like every smartphone today). The mechanism is motorized and can pop up in half a second to open the camera. When not in use, the section with all three cameras slide down inside the top portion of the phone. The entire working of this element was shown at the launch event, and it looked smooth.

Sure, that's a cause for concern, but it remains to be seen how well the Find X holds up over time.

- The Find X does not have a fingerprint scanner and instead supports only 3D facial recognition.

Open up the camera app, and switch to the front facing camera though, and an 8MP (f/2.0) will gracefully rise from the top of the handset. It allows users to securely sign-in under any light conditions. The screen-to-body ratio is 93.8 percent, so when you're looking at the front of the phone, you're nearly always looking at the display.

It is also powered by a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. The Find X Lamborghini Edition will also have 512GB of internal storage, part of the few who can boast of that much storage internally.

Oppo also unveiled a Lamborghini edition of the smartphone. The front camera has a whopping 25 megapixels, while the dual rear camera system is a 20/16-megapixel combo. It is bundled with 3D sensors that support FaceUnlock just like the iPhone X. Both cameras are also supported with AI features. The slider consists of a dual camera setup at the rear end, and a single front camera. The dual sensors on the rear are mentioned to offers AI portrait mode along with 3D lighting. Other features include a 3730mAh battery which can be charged via VOOC quick charging - basically the same fast charging feature called DASH charge in OnePlus phones. It does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The Find X battery measures in at 3750mAh and it's running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box under Oppo's proprietary Color OS. Oppo is calling them "Bordeaux Red" and "Glacier Blue", and saying they shimmer like a "precious gemstone".
