Last month, Oppo hosted an event in Paris to launch its flagship smartphone, the Find X. With a handsome design, top-of-the-line hardware, dual cameras and more, the smartphone brings some interesting innovations to the table. However, the company is skipping the Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition smartphone launch in India. It is a big gamble, and if it succeeds Oppo can become a true challenger to Apple in the coming years. The swivel mechanism of the Find X enables it to go nearly bezel-less with a screen to body ratio of 93.8 per cent. Oppo is not expected to bring the Oppo Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition to India, with its limited availability, exorbitant price tag, and nearly exotic specifications like 512GB of inbuilt storage and Super VOOC Flash Charge that takes just 35 minutes to fully charge the battery onboard. Oppo has managed to shrink down bezels completely. Technically, it's 93.8 percent screen with no notch. It also boasts Apple iPhone X-like Animoji capability and is being called "Omoji". The 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display dominates the entire front of the phone. The colours were accurate and details sharp.

The Oppo Find X looks astonishing with its unique and close to truly bezel-less design. To achieve the insane 93.6% screen-to-body ratio, Oppo has gone with a motorised mechanical part that houses the front and rear cameras. The face unlock works perfectly fine even in dark and takes just 0.5 seconds to unlock. The slider also hides a facial recognition scanner in the pop-up. In fact, a dual-camera setup on the Nex is positioned on the back of the phone.

Oppo Find X features a dual-camera setup comprising of a 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensor. The Find X does not come with a fingerprint sensor but is confident about the facial recognition system on the device. Of course, this kind of sophisticated mechanism for the camera could be a deal breaker for those who want a durable smartphone, but OPPO claims that the Find X is a durable phone and the company has performed over 300,000 durability tests before launching the phone. This module pops up and down whenever the cameras are in use or whenever you need to unlock the device using face detection.

The front camera, along with a host of sensors such as a flood illuminator, an infrared camera, a ranging sensor and a dot projector, uses Oppo's 3D structured light face recognition technology to unlock the phone.

Oppo has launched only one variant of the Find X in India, and that's the 8GB RAM version with 256GB of internal storage. On paper, at least, I am convinced about the performance of the smartphone. The battery is decent at 3,700mAh and supports the company's VOOC charging technology.

Measures to implement the so-called reconciliation deal for rebel-held parts of the city had not yet been implemented, it said.

It's Oppo's most expensive phone to date, and represents a huge jump for the brand that made a name for itself with affordable but solid phones whose selfie cameras were marketed heavily.

To go with the new design philosophy, Oppo had to make a few compromises as well.

The phone features gesture-based ColorOS 5.1 operating system, which is a custom ROM built on Google Android Oreo.

It has a motorised camera module that slides up and down. The first being its sliding camera mechanism and the second being its nearly ideal 93.8 percent of screen-to-body ratio.
