Despite having a significant resemblance of Galaxy S9 and S9+, OPPO has named the curved display as Panoramic Arc concept which achieved true bezel-less display. All sensors and microphones or either hidden or relocated to the top, bottom or on the sides. Unfortunately, OPPO has removed the 3.5mm classical audio jack that most loved.
Unfortunately, OPPO Find X doesn’t comes with wireless charging technology similarly with the OnePlus 6. But with the addition of 3730mAh battery and VOOC quickcharging technology, it makes wireless charging unimportant as battery can be quickly restored in a short charge.
