Oppo Find X is an all-screen phone with slide-out cameras

Details of the OPPO Find X revealed

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).

Trying to squeeze both a front-facing camera and a bezel-free display into a smartphone requires some imagination, and the Oppo Find X turns to motorization in order to deliver it. As for the performance, the flagship comes powered by the top tier Snapdragon 845 chipset backed by an Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM.

The OPPO Find X isn't set to debut for at least several more hours, and yet nearly all the details about the Chinese OEM's latest flagship smartphone have been laid out courtesy of a post from The Verge.

Ahead of its scheduled launch event in Paris, the Oppo Find X is now official courtesy of The Verge.

You have to hand it to Oppo: In the somewhat stale world of smartphones, many of which are now very alike, it really tries hard to do something different. Some slight variations in price are also possible. The OPPO Lamborghini Find X Special Edition will command a steeper €1699. The 6.4-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 1080p and is curved along the edges. First Vivo and now OPPO have introduced a phone with the pop-up future.

Analysts say the Chinese government could target trade in services between the two countries rather than physical products. The U.S. president's latest plans, if carried out, would likely plunge the world's two biggest economies into a trade war.

During our tests with the phone, we tried out O-Face and we were impressed with just how quickly the camera popped up, recognized us and then hid itself. It may be available in two colour options, Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. So, each time you want the phone to unlock securely, the motorised section will need to pop up. It will also automatically retract when you exit the app. Wireless charging is missing, though Oppo has included a fast wired charging system. The all-new Find X has been in the rumors mills from last few months.

The phone is of course running Color OS, based on Android 8.1 and OPPO says that the Find X will support the Android P Beta.

On the plus side, the Find X is due for a global launch, which means it's already loaded up with Google's suite of apps - something the Vivo Nex is sorely lacking. That's about $1,156, £878 or AU$1,568.

OPPO says the Find X will also be sold in the U.S. There's no word when, or if it's going to arrive at all in the Philippines, but we're confident that the company will bring it here sooner than later. We've asked OPPO Australia for more details on a launch here and we'll let you know if there's any updates. But at least Oppo did not promise us a bezelless smartphone.
