Oppo Find X sports a bezel-free design with pop-up cameras

The overnight leak, although not the greatest resolution and detail, show the rear camera appearing after what appears the be the bottom of the phone sliding down. The latter is unavoidable, as nearly the whole of the phone is taken up by it. There is not one under the screen, on the side, or at the back.

The Find X, which should be unveiled at 2:45 PM Louvre, Paris, France time, is somehow already official, because The Verge already has all the dirt on it.

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. For example, to unlock the device, you'll turn the screen on, swipe up on the lockscreen, which will then force the phone to open up to reveal the front camera. We've been hands on with the handset at its Paris launch to find out.

Oppo has used its Find series to launch products that are innovative, and push the boundaries of what is possible.

The highly-awaited smartphone stays true to the all-screen display trend.

He said police from Toulon had raided the woman's home in an attempt to discover whether she had links with Islamic State (ISIS). The customer was taken to hospital a non life-threatening chest injury while the cashier suffered a minor eye injury.

Speaking of that 3D facial scanner, Oppo did copy Apple when it comes to fingerprint sensors.

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. But unlike the Nex S, the movable section isn't just a tab with a camera on it - it's an entire chunk of the phone. So, if you haven't heard of Oppo before, know that it shares a lot with OnePlus. It does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The Find X will be available in two colors; Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue.

Oppo will allow users to watch the live unveiling of the Find X from the comfort of the couch.

On the back of this motorized segment you'll find a primary 16MP sensor alongside a 20MP secondary offering, with OIS (optical image stabilization) including. The AI assists while clicking portrait photos, and also helps in automatic screen recognition. It's a similar offering to Hauwei's and LG's AI cameras. Up front is AI-assisted 25-megapixel selfie camera. Wireless charging is missing, though Oppo has included a fast wired charging system. So we expect it to sell for between $600 to $800. Under the hood, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It's a 1080p Full HD OLED.

That said, pre-orders for the Find X begin today in China and will take weeks to reach anywhere else. Pricing and availability will be confirmed soon, Oppo says.
