Chinese company Oppo has unveiled its new Find X, an Android smartphone with a full screen 19.5:9 "Panoramic Arc" display, rear dual cameras, and a 3D face-scanning front camera. Unlike certain competing smartphones, such as the iPhone X, Oppo elected to use a slide-up mechanism to house the device's cameras, rather than a display notch, resulting in a 93.8% screen-to-body ratio.

Oppo's slide-up mechanism is triggered by swiping up on the handset's lock screen, at which point the 3D face-scanning camera will slide into view to authenticate the user. The Find X does not feature a fingerprint sensor. According to The Verge, initial tests with a pre-production version of the Find X found the sliding mechanism moves quickly enough for comfortable daily use.

Oppo claims the Find X's front-facing 3D camera is "AI-enhanced" to "naturally personalize" a selfie, and that its software offers 3D lighting to produce "artistic portraits." Joining the front 3D camera are dual rear 16MP and 20MP cameras with optical image stabilization. Oppo says its camera software features AI Scene Recognition, a function that works like a "photography technique consultant" with the ability to analyze and identify 800 scene types.

Cameras aside, the Oppo Find X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. The handset ships with Android 8.1 Oreo and the maker's own Color OS veneer. The handset likewise features a 3730mAh battery with fast-charging support.

Oppo will launch Find X globally in August, according to CNET, which reports that the 256GB version will cost €999.
