Oppo introduces Find X smartphone without notch, but with slide-out camerascamera

OnePlus sister company Oppo has announced the Find X. The smartphone with full screen design does not have a notch on the top. The cameras are recessed in the device and can slide upwards if necessary.

When opening the camera app of the Oppo Find X, the entire top of the device slides up in about half a second, to reveal both the front camera and the rear camera.

This system makes it possible to omit the notch that many smartphones with “full screen design” have today. The relative screen size is 92.25 percent, according to the company. With the Vivo Nex this is 91.2 percent; with this full-screen device, a small module with only the camera slides out. The ratio is somewhat smaller than a previously leaked Oppo teaser suggested.

Oppo will hold an event in Paris on Tuesday to unveil the Find X, but the company already gave The Verge a look at the device. The front camera of the smartphone is a 25-megapixel model and there are also sensors for 3D facial scans on the front. The device does not have a fingerprint scanner, while the Nex has a fingerprint scanner under the screen. When unlocked with the face, the camera rises momentarily.

On the back are two cameras, one of sixteen and one of twenty megapixels. Earlier rumors already showed that the Find X has a 19.5:9 OLED screen with a diagonal of 6.4 “and a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels.

The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and there are 8GB ram and 256GB storage capacity. The battery capacity is 3730mAh and the battery supports fast charging with Oppo’s own VOOC technology. Oppo supplies the device with Android 8.1 Oreo and its Color OS skin. The manufacturer will probably announce the prices and availability in Europe on Tuesday at 8.45 pm.
