The war against the notches is on. When the iPhone X was launched last year along with it came the trend of the Notch Style display. Almost every company copied the notch design and we saw smartphones from the likes of Oppo, Vivo and even Xiaomi copying the notch style display in order to reach that complete bezel-less experience. Today the product in discussion is the Oppo Find X.
Just a few days back with the Vivo Nex smartphone Vivo managed to one-up the competition by showcasing a truly bezel-less solution which didn’t have a notch. They did so by having a motorized front camera unit which pops up every time you open the front camera in the camera app.
But Oppo with the Oppo Find X has made a unique design which solves the problem of a notch in an even better way. The Find X has a motorized design but the whole back section goes up and down when you want to use the camera. And it’s true for both of the modules, front and the back.

Oppo Find X specifications:
With a 93.8% screen to body ratio display at 6.34 inches and an AMOLED panel, it’s definitely not lacking in the display department. It has a 2340*1080p resolution and an unorthodox 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display PPI is a bit less compared to few other flagships but that’s a move which will help in conserving battery life.
The hardware on this phone is also top-notch, it’s rocking a Snapdragon 845 chipset. It also sports a 64 GB/128 GB or 256 GB storage. 6 or 8 GB of RAM.
The Oppo Find X also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot which supports up to 400 GB and expandable storage on a 2018 smartphone is an appreciable move.
Oppo has had a history of making some great camera phones. On the Find X too they haven’t skimped in this department, it has a 25 MP selfie camera and dual 16 MP + 20 MP primary cameras.
With a 3730 mAh battery, it certainly appears well endowed than many other modern flagships. But only a thorough testing can show whether the battery lasts more than a day or not. This smartphone does support fast charging in the form of VOOC flash charge. 5V/4A is the maximum that it supports and it definitely is fast on paper but we would do more real-world tests later and keep you updated on the same.
The Oppo Find X doesn’t come with any of the more popular unlocking mechanisms like a traditional fingerprint scanner or even an in-display fingerprint scanner like the Vivo Nex Ultimate edition.
It compensates for that by having an advanced 3D face scanner in the front module which is revealed by the motorized mechanism.
Oppo Find X price and launch date in India:
The Find X would most probably retail for a price of around INR 48,000 or lesser depending upon how aggressive the company wants to keep its pricing.
Invites are already out for a July 12 event in India. So you can expect the phone to launch in India on 12th of July.
The Oppo Find X would be launched in Paris later today and right now it’s shaping up to be one of the most hyped up smartphones of this year! Do stay tuned here and on our YouTube channel for more updates on the same.
Oppo Find X: Genuine Concerns.
One of the most vocal concerns by all of the tech enthusiasts is that the Find X employs a motorized functionality. This opens up the chance for a lot of things to go wrong.
A.) It would make it very tough to use external cases or covers as there are moving parts throughout the length of the phone.
B.) It would be very annoying everytime the motorized tech has to slide up the phone when using Biometrics, Instagram or almost any other application which involves using the cameras.
So, guys, this was it for today. Do you think that the Oppo Find X is the right direction towards the future of Bezel-less smartphones? Or are we still far from a phone which can truly make bezel-less seem bezel-less?
