Oppo Find X, which is being officially announced at a live streamed event in Paris

The Oppo Find X, announced Tuesday at an event in Paris, has a screen that stretches from the very top of the phone, wraps around the sides and goes almost to the very bottom (the phone has a thin bottom bezel, aka a "chin").

When phone maker Oppo says that the Oppo Find X is almost all screen, it really means it. The Android handset is arresting to look at, mostly because its 6.4-inch display really does stretch across the entire phone face — there isn’t even a camera for taking selfies. Or rather, there is, but you won’t see it until you open it like a push-pop.

The Oppo Find X, announced Tuesday at an event in Paris, has a screen that stretches from the very top of the phone, wraps around the sides and goes almost to the very bottom (the phone has a thin bottom bezel, aka a “chin”). The screen-to-body ratio is 93.8 per cent, so when you’re looking at the front of the phone, you’re almost always looking at the display.

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.

The pop-up camera tray is similar to the pop-up selfie camera on the Vivo Nex, which, along with Oppo and OnePlus, operates under the umbrella of BKK Electronics.

Oppo gave the Find X’s front camera 3D face scanning to take better selfies and unlock your phone, though we’re not certain yet how secure the face unlocking feature is at this point. It did work well on the company’s previous flagship, the Oppo R15 Pro, though.

The Find X will sell globally in August, unlike past Oppo devices, which have been limited to Asia. Oppo will price the Find X at 999 euros for the 256GB version with VOOC fast charging (price and specs configuration may vary by country). That’s about $1,159, £879 or AU$1,569.

There’s also a Lamborghini edition of the phone, which will retail for 1,599 euros — roughly $1,929, £1,499  or $AU2,669. For that jarring price, you’ll get 512GB of storage, a carbon-fibre textured back and SuperVOOC charging, which Oppo says lets you charge the phone 100 per cent in 35 minutes. It parallels Huawei, Oppo’s Chinese rival, which has a similar partnership with Porsche.
