Oppo Find X vs Vivo Nex: the all-screen smartphone showdown

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

Finally, how do you put a case on this phone? It's similar to what Vivo has done with its Nex phone but in Oppo's case, it's not just a tiny pop-up module for housing just the front camera. The Oppo Find X manages to outclass most flagships in this department. Vivo's Nex first bucked this trend, and now the Find-X handset from BBK Electronics' brand-mate Oppo joins the party with user-facing cameras that pop up from behind a full-coverage display. 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.

While the sliding cameras (a.k.a stealth 3D cameras) look interesting, we have no clue how this mechanism works after a few months of usage. The device will come with the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset under the hood coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The device has a dual 16 and 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1080P screen. OPPO says the Find X Automobili Lamorghini Edition will cost €1,699, though no dates have been given for launch.

While this early report might have taken some of the limelight away from the phone's actual launch event in Paris, there is still some information regarding OPPO Find X that was only revealed at the event itself. 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 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. Oppo uses the 3D Structured Light Technology to map out the nose, eyes, and other facial features, and "personalize your selfie" as a result.

Because the children are not charged with a crime, U.S. rules state that they can not be detained with their parents. Not only could they not pick up or touch the children; they could not get their parents for them.

Absent from the device is a headphone jack and a fingerprint scanner.

That said, I'd very much want Apple to copy one feature from the special Lambo Find X. The phone has been launched in two colours - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue.

Things really take a turn for the unusual when you turn the display on or fire up any of the cameras on the OPPO Find X - cameras, it bears noting, that remain hidden from sight until they're needed.

Huawei has its Porsche Design tie-in, so what could Oppo do but look to another supercar manufacturer to deliver a special edition. It has a 25MP 3D front camera with an aperture rate of f/2.0 for selfies, video calling etc. It's also not the slide-up motorized camera system either, since that's just plain silly. For the battery the Find X comes with a 3,730mAh capacity battery which can be charged back up via USB Type-C, and although it doesn't use Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology it can still be charged back up rather fast thanks to Oppo's VOOC Fast Wired Charging.
