The device sports a curved body with glass on both sides, which are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It's hidden when the phone is off or the camera app is closed, and when you turn on the Find X, the top section of the phone pops up to reveal a 25-megapixel front-facing camera, complete with a 3D facial scanning system. The all-new Find X has been in the rumors mills from last few months. Movements up and down take half a second, The Verge reports from its hands-on session.

As we have been expecting for sometime now, Oppo has today launched its latest flagship smartphone. 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.

This approach has allowed Oppo to yield a screen to body ratio of 92.25 percent which should make the otherwise very large phone easy to hold in one hand.

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

It also supports the Android P Beta program, allowing you - if you want - to try out the next version of Android before it's officially launched.

With the OPPO Find X, the company is stepping its foot in North America and Europe. Under the hood, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. But beware, it's likely to have a variety of bugs. Or rather, there is, but you won't see it until you open it like a push-pop.

The Oppo Find X price is €999 (around £870, $1,100, AU$1,500) for the 256GB model.

OPPO says the Find X will also be sold in the U.S. There's no word when, or if it's going to arrive at all in the Philippines, but we're confident that the company will bring it here sooner than later. For now, there's no information on what markets the phone will be available in - or what it'll cost - but we should know more in the coming weeks. If it can ace that, we could be looking at one of the best smartphones of 2018.

However, its lofty price tag is a little harder to justify when you consider the screen is "only" full HD and there's no wireless charging, stereo speakers or even a headphone jack.

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

OPPO has also announced a special edition Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X. The Lamborghini edition will include tweaked design with a carbon fibre layer peering through the glass on the rear with a 3D engraved Lamborghini logo on the rear.
