Oppo, as expected, on Tuesday unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Find X, at an event in Paris.

Opening up the camera app will cause the phone's "Stealth 3D" camera tray to slide up, exposing a 25-megapixel front-facing camera and a dual 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel rear camera. Under the hood, you'll find flagship-level components for 2018, like a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of onboard storage, and a large 3,730mAh fast-charging battery.

The Find X is available now in China, and Oppo says it's also coming to France, Italy, Spain, and Netherlands. Oppo has confirmed that it will eventually bring the Find X to markets across Europe and North America. The company will also be launching the flagship phone with a mobile carrier, giving the possibility that the OPPO Find X will be much cheaper to get in the USA market.

Oppo says the Find X facial recognition uses 3D structure light technology, which Apple used for the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera. The company is calling it 3D Omoji, and it lets you choose a amusing image or create a personal cartoon image to mimic your facial expression in real time.

Oppo Find X smartphone has a nice shiny metal back with curved edges and no camera sensors up front or at the back.
