Competition for premium smartphones has never been fiercer, with a slew of OEMs vying for first place in the fight for innovation. We’ve seen the Huawei P20 Pro’s tri-camera, the Vivo X20 UD’s under-screen fingerprint scanner, and so on. After only a few time, the Vivo Nex arrived with an incredible screen-to-body ratio, only to be surpassed by the Oppo Find X. The front and back cameras are housed in a pop-up slide on the new smartphone.

Design and Display
The Oppo Find X is the epitome of luxury, with a flagship glass design that exudes superb aesthetics. The Oppo Find X has a glass finish that shimmers when it catches the light and is a smudge magnet. On the plus side, the smartphone is not slick and is extremely comfortable to use. Except for the screen on the front and Oppo imprinted on the back, the smartphone also sports a motorized pop mechanism for its cameras, which leaves both surfaces bare.
The display is what Oppo is actually marketing with this flagship. It isn’t a revolution because it isn’t as powerful as certain flagships, but it is revolutionary in terms of how nicely it covers the front of the phone. The flagship stands at the top of the ranking in that area, with a stunning 93.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. It’s also worth noting that the display is curved on one side and has a very little bezel on the bottom. The screen is a 6.42-inch AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution.
Battery and Camera
With the Oppo Find X, power isn’t an issue at all. It comes with enough juice to get you through the day and into the night. The smartphone has a battery capacity of up to 3, 730mAh, which is much higher than the usual line. It’s impressive that it comes with Oppo’s proprietary VOOC Super Fast Charge, which charges you from zero to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.
In terms of the Hip Hop camera – pun intended – there’s a high-end dual back camera and a stunning selfie camera that’s also utilized for O-Face unlocking. Oppo’s rear camera, which consists of a 16MP primary camera with optical image stabilization and is supported by a 20MP camera, promises to be nothing short of amazing. Because of its 3D mapping capacity, which helps to capture a better image as well as for security, the front 25MP camera is dubbed the Stealth 3D camera.
Hardware and Software
Because you don’t have a fingerprint biometric option, there’s an IR for improved face unlocking in the dark. As you go, you’ll notice that this one, like other flagships, has the quickest Qualcomm chipset. That’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, an octa-core processor with an Adreno 630 GPU for premium performance.
The Oppo Find X also has a strong 8GB RAM, which is more than enough for a smooth performance in conjunction with storage options ranging from 128GB to 256GB with no expansion option. You have the most recent software (Android 8.1 Oreo) plus the option to try out the Android P beta that is currently in development. Trying out Android P is not recommended because there will be several issues due to the fact that it has not yet been officially released.
Oppo Find X Price and Availability
The Bordeaux Red and the Glacier Blue are the two colors offered, and each cost 420, 000 Naira. It is set to go on sale in August, however this is area dependent, thus some people may obtain it before others.
