The SuperVOOC flash charging hardware in the Find X Lamborghini Edition has a maximum charge of 50W and can fully charge the phone's battery from 0 to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.

According to a promo video that appeared in China's CCTV1, the main cameras are hidden by a sliding mechanism. The latter is unavoidable, as nearly the whole of the phone is taken up by it.

Just a week after the Vivo Nex launched with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, the Oppo Find X takes the "closest to an all-screen smartphone" title away from it. However whereas that phone only put its front-facing camera on a small nub that pops out of the top, the Find X is more dramatic.

The standard Find X, on the other hand, comes with VOOC.

Oppo Find X global launch: When is it and where is it? The 3D curved glass on the front and rear also makes the device look premium. It's an AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2440 x 1080 and it's about as good as you'd expect a Full HD panel to be. The front is all display, with a slight Galaxy S9-like curve around the side edges.

The Find X, as insane as it is, features an all-glass front and back.

Despite the display notch originating from an Android handset, folks often cry heresy when they see it on something other than an iPhone X, shaming the device for unabashedly "copying" Apple's design. There's an IR (infra-red) sensor built in too, allowing O-Face to work in the dark. As mentioned earlier, this phone uses 3D face scanning for biometric unlock. The phone is likely to launch in two colour options - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. When you want to snap a pic, a motor raises the top center section of the phone up to reveal the cameras. You can slide up the module while clicking photos or when unlocking the device. It will also automatically retract when you exit the app. It's a similar offering to Hauwei's and LG's AI cameras. The high-end smartphone is expected to come with a screen-to-body ratio of 93.8 per cent, the 5x dual camera zoom it debuted at MWC 2017, and its custom fast charging tech that can fully charge a 2,500mAh battery in 15 minutes.

Oppo says this will be the first phone it sells in the North American and European markets, with more specific pricing and launch dates getting unveiled at a later date. The 6.4-inch OLED display is curved just like Samsung's smartphones and the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.

OPPO also showcased another variant of the Find X at its gathering at the Louvre. Also, the official Oppo India Twitter account has been teasing the launch in the country as well from past few days. But beware, it's likely to have a variety of bugs. The 256GB storage model is expected to arrive in Europe for €999 (around P61,700 in Philippine pesos or $1,158 in US dollars) sometime in August.

The Oppo Find X price is €999 (around £870, $1,100, AU$1,500) for the 256GB model. If you're in the latter group, you'll be glad to know this fad was skipped. Since it's all screen, there's very little space left even on the chin to house the front camera. There's also no word on any type of waterproofing.

The cameras are kept covered and are revealed only when needed.
