OPPO unveiled the Find X yesterday at an event in Paris. A solid flagship, the Find X features a never-before-seen sliding camera mechanism. It will likely make its way to the US in the coming months, and could come with price tag of over US$1000.

At an event yesterday in Paris, OPPO unveiled its new flagship, the OPPO Find X. Devices in the series have traditionally gone up against other Chinese flagships, and the Find X is no different, as it offers a completely premium specifications sheet while bringing a radical factor the market.

The Find X sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ OLED display. Unlike previously expected, the Find X has no notch. Instead, it features a tray that house both the dual cameras and the selfie shooter. When actuated, the tray slides out, and slides back in when not in use. We may have our opinions on the long-term reliability of such mechanical components but there’s no doubt that the Find X could very well set the path for a future design factor.

The device is powered by the premium Snapdragon 845 and features 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage. It opts for the same camera setup seen on the OnePlus 6 (20 MP + 16 MP). The selfie camera is a single 25 MP sensor, with 3D sensing for facial recognition. Worthy of note is the fact that the Find X has no fingerprint sensor of any kind—neither a traditional one nor an in-display sensor. Facial recognition is the only biometric system on the device.

The Find X gets its juice from a 3730 mAh battery, with OPPO’s VOOC fast charge keeping things brief. There is neither Qi wireless charging nor a headphone jack. OPPO claims the device will be sold in the US under a carrier, although when remains the biggest question. There’s word, however, that the 256 GB model will come with a massive €999 price tag in Europe, which translates to about $1,150 in freedom units.
