OPPO Find X Teardown – The Secret of Hidden Cameras

OPPO launched the 2018 flagship smartphone Find X on June 29, 2018. It has a 6.42-inch, 19:5.9 OLED screen, the screen ratio is up to 93.8%. The OPPO Find X performance is very strong, the processor is Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, supports 8G RAM/128G ROM. The new technologies of OPPO Find X are Facekey 3D structure, SuperVOOC technology and 3D Hidden Cameras.


What is Facekey 3D Structure

The OPPO Find X uses Facekey 3D structure light technology to create a 3D depth map with millimeter precision by projecting 15,000 spots to the face and quickly compare it with the owner information for a contact-free and safer unlock.


SuperVOOC Technology

The SuperVOOC only supports on the Find X super charge and Lamborghini versions. The SuperVOOC maximum charging power is nearly 50W, it just means that you can charge a 3400mAh battery in 35 minutes.


3D Hidden Cameras

The OPPO Find X has 3 cameras, the front camera is 25M and the dual-rear cameras are 20M+16M. The OPPO Find X adopts the dual-track periscope structure, which hides the cameras inside the phone. When you need to take a photo or unlock it, the camera will pop out in seconds and automatically return to its position after the operation is completed. Does it sound magical? What is the dual-track periscope structure? Now let's take apart the OPPO Find X and see what's inside it.
