By looking at the device, you can't find cameras anywhere on the device.

The biggest highlight of the OPPO Find X is its innovative pop-up cameras to offer the all-screen front.

With the flagship smartphone, Oppo joins Chinese companies Huawei, Vivo and Xiaomi which recently introduced handsets with price tags of over Rs 30,000- a segment where Samsung, OnePlus and Apple are the top players in that order in India. On the front, there's a 25-megapixel camera for selfies, which Oppo says has been combined with a 3D camera array that can better figure out lighting to more accurately illuminate your face.

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

This feature on the Find X gives it an edge over other phones with traditional camera placement. It's a full HD+ AMOLED display with a screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9 aspect ratio and curved sides around the edges. As soon as you open the camera app, the top section of the front panel slides up and brings out a 25MP selfie camera for front clicks and a 16MP+20MP dual-camera setup at the rear.

The 20-megapixel and 16-megapixel cameras on the rear dual-camera system are always visible and ready to go without sliding.

The Oppo Find X doesn't have a fingerprint scanner, so it relies on a 3D facial scanning feature for authentication. Out of the box, the phone will run Android 8.1 but will feature the firm's ColorOS 5.1.

If that wasn't enough, OPPO also had time to create a limited, more premium edition called the Find X Lamborghini Edition - with design cues and branding coming from the luxury sports auto manufacturer, no doubt.

Oppo is also launching their version of Apple's Animoji, with the OPPO Omoji. The phone doesn't feature a headphone jack and will instead use the USB Type-C port for audio when plugging in headphones. The Oppo Find X dimensions measure at 156.7x74.3x9.4mm, and it weighs about 186 grams. The device has two gradient color combinations - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. It should be noted that the regular variant comes with standard VOOC charging technology and a 3,730mAh battery. However, for people willing to take that chance, the Oppo Find X does look like quite a spectacular phone.

Oppo is a massive smartphone maker in Europe, but its presence in Europe and North America has been extremely limited.

Oppo says that it takes just half a second to open and has been tested to last more than 300,000 times - potentially giving "five years" of use. Oppo has used a whopping 10V, 50W SuperVOOC power adapter, which it claims can get the Find X Lamborghini Edition from zero to fully charged in a mere 35 minutes. The camera is also powered by AI assistance.
