Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

The Vivo NEX shows how the iPhone X without the notch could have looked

This is because Oppo had previously launched a device called N1, which was considered as "one of the most innovative phones of its time".

The OPPO Find X will retail for €999 when it hits the shelves in Europe. Chinese manufacturer Oppo today revealed its new Find X, which shows Apple how it could eliminate the notch in style. However, some companies, like Vivo, are trying to whittle down those bezels and not compromise with a notch. 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). Speaking of which, Oppo has opted against using a fingerprint sensor - physical or in-display. Now new information about the Oppo Find X points out that the phone will have a screen-to-body ratio above 90 percent.

It means Oppo can fit a 6.4-inch display, which curves slightly around the sides of the handset.

Supplementing the performance of the SoC is 8GB of RAM and you have ample 256GB of internal memory incorporated. The device has a dual 16 and 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1080P screen. The setup is Artificial Intelligence (AI) assisted. It will also automatically retract when you exit the app. The 25MP selfie camera can capture 3D AI selfie using the data from O-Face and also includes 3D portrait lighting. In the meantime, let us know what you want to see from the Oppo Find X! That's nothing to turn your nose up at, though, as it offers two hours of usage with a 15-minute charge, according to the folks at OPPO. The Lamborghini Edition with 50W (10V/5A) Super VOOC flash charge can be fully charged in just 35 minutes. The dual-SIM phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based Colour OS and is backed by a 3,730 mAh battery with support for VOOC fast charging.

Although the Find X's price has not been leaked yet, it is expected to fetch a premium price. In fact, it costs more than the Galaxy S9+, the Galaxy Note 8 and Huawei P20 Pro as well.

The device comes in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue color options with gradient finish on the edges.

The Oppo Find X has a mechanized pop-out function, which The Verge says takes about 0.5 seconds to pop into place. This could be a hint at an imminent launch of the flagship device in our country.

Fittingly, this is the first-ever phone with Super VOOC, tech that was announced a couple of years ago. The company has sponsored the travel and accommodation for the correspondent.
