The most noticeable thing about the phone is that it comes with a almost bezeless screen that has no notch, a trend which more than a few smartphone manufacturers have implemented in new phones for 2018. United States pricing and availability haven't been confirmed yet, nor whether Oppo has managed to secure any of those all-important carrier partnerships, but we'll presumably know more in the coming months.

Oppo Find X measures 156.7 x 74.3 x 9.4mm and weighs around 186 grams.

Oppo also unveiled a Lamborghini edition of the smartphone.

Because of this design with serious lack of bezel, Find X sports a 92.25% screen-to-body ratio. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset clubbed with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. The storage on this variant has also been amped up to 512GB. A section of the phone pops up as you unlock the Find X, exposing the 25-megapixel selfie camera and dual-lens main camera setup. It's also running on Android 8.1, but with Vivo's FunTouch 3.1 interface over the top, which doesn't have the Google suite of apps.

With the OPPO Find X, the company is stepping its foot in North America and Europe. If it makes you feel any better, the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design with 512 GB storage had a €2,100 launch price so that makes this Find X sound affordable. The company is expected to reveal the price later today at an event in Paris.

The phone has ditched the conventional fingerprint sensor and uses 3D Structured Light-based face recognition technology called O-Face Recognition. The design-focused choices don't stop there.

They're cleverly hidden inside a mechanism that gloriously slides up from the top of the phone when you need it, and gloriously slides away again when you don't. The flagship possesses a perfectly symmetrical curved glass body at the back and the front. However, the glass body also makes the device fingerprint and smudge magnet. That, though, does have to be balanced against the fact that it's probably going to be tricky to find a case that fits the Find X but also allows the cameras to pop up when required. The company claims that it takes only half a second to close and open the slider.

As noted by CNET, the front-facing 3D face-scanner improves selfies and unlocks the phone.

The notch on the iPhone X is home to its speaker, front-facing camera, and all the clever sensors that enable Touch ID.

However, instead of 30,000 dots projected onto a user's face, the Find X projects 15,000 dots.

On the outside, there's a carbon fiber effect finish, along with the Lamborghini raging bull logo.

Chinese phone maker Oppo has unveiled the Oppo Find X, an Android smartphone with a 6.4-inch OLED display that spans nearly its entire front surface. The company says that the sliding mechanism has been tested over 300,000 times for durability. There's no pricing information for North America yet, or any confirmation that the US will be included in the North America launch for that matter, but European consumers will be able to pick up the phone for €999.
