Oppo Find X Ditches Display Notch With Motorized Pop-Up Camera System

Oppo Find X the next to kill Apple’s notch

OPPO’s Find X brings an all-screen front and pop-up cameras, coming to India on July 12th

But perhaps the most interesting thing about the smartphone is the Super VOOC charging technology. The tech was launched a couple of years ago at MWC, and with the latest implementation, it takes 35 minutes to fully charge the smartphone's 3400mAh battery. It will also support expandable storage via microSD card. However, its motorized design means that the Find X misses out on something that we've all taken for granted in today's phones: waterproofing. Now, however, some rather inventive OEMs are looking past the stopgap notch in an effort to deliver smartphones that further maximize the amount of screen real estate available to users. It also features flood illuminator, Infrared camera, proximity sensor, Dot projector, receiver and RGB camera are integrated into this unit, the company said. A China event is scheduled for June 29.

OPPO has also announced a special edition Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X. The Lamborghini edition will include tweaked design with a carbon fibre layer peering through the glass on the rear with a 3D engraved Lamborghini logo on the rear.

The 3D Face recognition of O-Face has a higher level of security than fingerprint identification, it claimed. Oppo calls this technology - O-Face. For face unlock, the pop-up camera comes out, recognise the user, unlock the phone, then slide back in.

While a number of Android phone brands have embraced the notch at the top of their device screens, a couple of them are bucking the trend with innovative approaches to creating a bezel-less front fascia without ditching the selfie camera. The 6.4-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 1080p and is curved along the edges. There's also an IR sensor that lets O-Face work in the dark as well.

This camera comes complete with a 3D facial scanning system similar to that seen on Apple's flagship, for securely unlocking the device and taking well-lit selfies. On the software front, it runs Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS layered on top.

Disney raises its bid for Fox to $71 billion
Disney's latest move raises the hurdle for Comcast, which now has to decide whether it is feasible to come back with a higher bid. Disney has upped its offer to $71.3bn (£54bn) - from $52.4bn - trumping Comcast's $65bn all-cash hostile offer tabled last week .

This approach has allowed Oppo to yield a screen to body ratio of 92.25 percent which should make the otherwise large phone easy to hold in one hand.

At its heart, the phone houses the latest and the fastest Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 845.

No, it's not the massive 512GB of storage, although I suspect iPhones will also get this iPad-only storage tier.

Unlike, say, a Sidekick's flip-twist mechanism, though, or the slide of the venerable Nokia N95, Oppo opted to make the Find X's pop-out camera array motorized.

The rear duo are a 16MP (f/2.0) primary and 20MP (f/2.2) secondary, with OIS support. The stock camera app features Apple-like portrait mode and portrait lighting options. The phone packs a 3,730mAh battery and supports quick charging as well.
