The Find X's design has some potential drawbacks, though they're hard to assess without actually using the phone for some time.

Apart from being a top-end phone, Oppo Find X's highlight is a camera system that gets completely tucked into the top edge when the phone is switched off. And it's a true flagship rocking the Snapdragon 845 chip under the hood with a whopping 256GB of storage, a clever camera and an advanced face recognition feature that Oppo is so confident in that it has not included a fingerprint scanner. The fact that the phone supports global LTE bands and will be sold in the United States and Europe - a first for Oppo - adds credence to the fact that Oppo isn't looking for China exclusivity with the Find X. But more on that later. Oppo will bring the Find X to North America and Europe, and, according to The Verge, the company will making those pricing and availability announcements soon. Oppo Find X will reportedly sport 93.8 per cent screen-to-body ratio. Some slight variations in price are also possible.

As per earlier leaks, Oppo Find X will come with a 6.4-inches AMOLED Full HD+ display with 2340 x 1080 resolution and aspect ratio of 19.5:9, hinting towards the possibility of a notch.

As we have been expecting for sometime now, Oppo has today launched its latest flagship smartphone. Its rear-facing cameras are in the traditional position on the back of the phone.

Buyers will be able to choose from two color options - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. The slider houses the dual rear cameras on the rear side and 3D facial scanning system and the front camera on the front side. Once the phone is powered up, the motorised cameras pop up, scan your face and you're away. It will also automatically retract when you exit the app. Also, the official Oppo India Twitter account has been teasing the launch in the country as well from past few days. It may include up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. That's about $1,156, £878 or AU$1,568.
