Vivo gave haters of the display notch on smartphones a pop-up camera on the Nex A and S. Oppo Find X is another smartphone that brings a different solution to the need for near-perfect bezel-less design without cutting a notch at the top of the display. This time, the solution is a slider mechanism that hides and reveals the three cameras on board as needed.
In essence, the phone is made of two slabs of glass held together by a strip of aluminium. Oppo calls it the world’s first panoramic designed phone. And it is a gorgeous piece of work. The front is all glass and the back is all glass too – completely bare of anything, as the camera is hidden and there is no fingerprint scanner there. This is likely to be one slippery phone.
Did we mention that there is no fingerprint scanner? Yes; but there is 3D Face Unlock via infra-red.
The cameras – selfie and back – are AI-enhanced. The selfie unit is a 25-megapixel snapper, while the rear one is a dual one. The slider brings to mind the top slider on Nokia N85 (seen below) back in the day. The top section of the phone slides up to reveal the rear-facing dual camera and the front-facing selfie camera.
