The OPPO Find X is one of the more interesting smartphones in 2018, mainly due to its unique camera mechanism, and ZOL (via MyFixGuide) has just released their teardown of the phone in order to show us how exactly is that camera mechanism functioning. The OPPO Find X was announced last month, and it is the first high-end smartphone OPPO had introduced since the OPPO Find 7 back in 2014.
In any case, the OPPO Find X sports extremely thin bezels, it is made out of metal and glass, and it does not sport a display notch, mainly because OPPO included all of its cameras, both front, and rear-facing ones, into a module that is tucked away on the inside of the phone. Every time the phone needs to scan your face or you want to take a photo, the top portion of the phone will slide out, revealing the device’s cameras. The OPPO Find X teardown reveals a ‘dual-track’ periscope structure of its cameras, which is comprised of a motor, cables, and some other parts that you can check out in the gallery down below. Interestingly enough, that camera system has cushioning in order to make the transition smoother. No, considering the OPPO Find X has moving parts, that is a big concern for some people, though OPPO claims that the OPPO Find X’s camera system can be raised and lowered 300,000 times without a problem.
If you check out the source link down below, you will be able to get more info regarding the teardown process itself, and we’ve included a GIF image down below which shows you exactly how this camera system works, though do keep in mind that the backplate has been taken down, so that you can have a better look. The OPPO Find X is actually quite a powerful phone, it comes with a 6.42-inch AMOLED display, 8GB of RAM and it is fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC. The device features 16 and 20-megapixel rear-facing cameras, and a single 25-megapixel front-facing one. A 3,730mAh battery is also included in the package, along with OPPO’s extremely fast charging, and the Lamborghini Edition of the phone comes with ‘Super VOOC’, the fastest smartphone battery charging out there.
