Oppo Find X goes official with a pop-up slider with three cameras
One pop-up camera? Puh-lease! The Oppo Find X has three cameras mounted on one pop-up mechanism – dual cam on the back, single on the front. There’s a 3D facial scanning system as well.
The mechanism is motorized and can pop up in half a second. It was tested to 300,000 slides, and Oppo says the average person unlocks their phone 100-150 times a day. So there shouldn't be any durability worries for at least five years.
Thanks to the innovative slider, the front of the phone is entirely dedicated to the 6.4” OLED panel (1080p+ resolution) with very narrow bezels, even the chin is barely there. The official screen to body ratio is 92.25%. The back is completely clean too when the cameras slide back in.
There’s no fingerprint reader on board, so the phone relies on its 3D facial scanning for secure locking. This requires the system to slide out, look at your face and unlock the phone, then slide back in.
The rest of the Oppo Find X is not quite unique, but flagship through and through. The dual camera is a 16 + 20 MP setup while the selfie cam is a 25 MP shooter that can create "3D AI selfies".
The phone is powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The battery is a fairly big 3,730 mAh with VOOC fast charging for quick top-ups. In terms of software, Oppo installed Color OS 5.1, a customization of Android 8.1 Oreo that's focused on AI.
The Find X is a dual-SIM phone with worldwide LTE band support. It will be officially sold in Italy, Spain, France, and the Netherlands for €999 starting in August.

Sure. That's not in contention. Still, for those of us who aren't too bothered by big brand names, this is a contender.
