Oppo has released a promo video detailing the process it has used to create the unique camera bump on the rear of the new Oppo Find X3 Pro. The camera housing has polarized the Android fan base but it is the result of a highly complex 40-hour process that is impressive in its technical complexity.

The Oppo Find X3 is the eagerly anticipated follow up to one of last year’s best Android phones, the Oppo Find X2 Pro. The device is scheduled to launch on March 11 but it has already been well leaked in advance thanks to Evan Blass who was the first to reveal its unique, and controversial, camera bump. The camera bump or camera housing has become a key design point for smartphones, particularly since they started adopting an all-screen approach on the front.

Oppo’s approach for the Find X3 Pro has polarized Android fans since its launch, but the company is hoping that its just-released promo video highlighting the design and engineering process it used will change hearts and minds. It’s undoubtedly a significant technical achievement as it starts out as a single piece of flat glass. A lengthy 40-hour heating process is applied to the glass following 2,000 design points forging it to create a seamless fluid rear shape.

Once this has been achieved, Oppo then applies a special OC0 process to the shaped glass panel to achieve a polished porcelain finish. The final touch is a special paint finish, which in this instance is called a “shine-through mirror black”, designed to create a depth effect. Oppo is marketing the event with the tag “Awaken Color” which is likely a reference to the end-to-end 10-bit imaging capability of the device. However, it could also indicate that it has a special color up its sleeve that we may not have yet seen.

Buy the Oppo Find X2 Pro from Amazon.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
