It's similar to what Vivo has done with its Nex phone but in Oppo's case, it's not just a tiny pop-up module for housing just the front camera.

Like Vivo's recently-revealed Nex S, the Find X's front facing camera is motorized and pops out of the top of the frame. The smartphone with the all-screen display is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, include up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.

For what OPPO wants the Find X to be, which is the most immersive smartphone on the market, the Full HD screen its ideal.

When phone maker Oppo says that the Oppo Find X is nearly all screen, it really means it. The Find X has a 6.4-inch screen which is a big jump when compared to the 5.5-inch screen of the Find 7 and Find 7a, but with practically no bezels, there isn't a huge difference in the size of both phones. Some slight variations in price are also possible. Keep an eye out for our in-depth Oppo Find X review soon to see if it can live up to its price tag.

Disclosure - The writer is in Paris attending the Find X launch on Oppo's invite. According to the site, Oppo's latest flagship smartphone features some interesting technology; one of which is a motorised, slide-out camera system. After all, the phone hasn't launched yet, and we're supposed to still be in the dark with regard to its design and specs. When you close the camera app, this piece of the phone will move back into the phone's chassis and disappear.

Buyers will be able to choose from two color options - Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue.

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. If you play the video in slow motion, it appears that the top metal frame rises to reveal two cameras and an LED flash.

There's also AI scene recognition which can identify 21 different scenarios, automatically adjusting the camera settings, giving you better photos.

OPPO also showcased another variant of the Find X at its gathering at the Louvre.

Making sure everything ticks is a 3,730mAh battery with support for Super VOOC charging technology.

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. Coming to the storage, the Find X comes with up to 256GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded further with a microSD card.

The Oppo Find X release date is set for August, but we're waiting for confirmation from the firm where it will go on sale. In the meantime, we can only hope that Apple is taking note.
