The front-facing camera is a 25-megapixel shooter. There is not one under the screen, on the side, or at the back. All the cameras, both the front-facing ones - as in multiple cams, because this bad boy does 3D face recognition too - and the rear ones.

The Find X's software is clearly inspired by iOS, and just like the iPhone X, it relies exclusively on facial recognition - there is no fingerprint scanner. Inside, there's Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 paired with 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage.

Leaked TVcommercial revealed Oppo Find X's unique camera system. The three camera sensors are entirely hidden when the phone is off or the camera app is inactive.

Oppo's Find X was expected to come out in all its glory at the launch event, but things didn't quite turn out as planned as nearly all the specs along with the pricing leaked ahead of the launch.

As far as its specifications are concerned, Oppo Find X a 6.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.

It was the last innovation that Oppo emulated with their Find X, a near all-screen smartphone which also hides its selfie camera behind a motorized slider. Wireless charging is missing, though Oppo has included a fast wired charging system.

The speedy Mbaye Niang got in front of his defender , nicked the ball away from Szczesny and rolled it into the empty net. He took the free kick himself and although he managed Poland's first shot on target, it was saved by Khadim N'Diaye.

The Oppo Find X has a mechanized pop-out function, which The Verge says takes about 0.5 seconds to pop into place. So we expect it to sell for between $600 to $800. However, the report doesn't mention whether the price is for the 512GB variant or the 256GB variant. This is a pretty significant breakthrough, and Oppo appears to be going all in on it, as the Find X does not have a fingerprint sensor.

That said, pre-orders for the Find X begin today in China and will take weeks to reach anywhere else.

We don't yet have USA specific pricing or availability, but that info should be coming soon. While the pop-up mechanism is no doubt intriguing, it would be prone to breaking after a few [inevitable] drops - especially if you drop the device with the camera module in the open position. Keep an eye out for our in-depth Oppo Find X review soon to see if it can live up to its price tag.
