When vivo announced their vivo NEX smartphone we were impressed with the 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. Look vivo gonna drop their record holder to OPPO very soon as a solid rumor, the upcoming OPPO Find X will be featuring 93.8% screen-to-body ratio.

This made possible when the manufacture obtained dual-sided curve display at the same time maximize the lower chin and removing the notch. This is what we predict OPPO doing it by keeping a minimum top bezel that just enough to house earpiece, front camera, and some sensors.

Rumor, that the Find X will be packed with flagship specs including Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM and AMOLED display to have the side-curved display possible.

The OPPO Find X will be announced during OPPO Global Launch on 20th June 2018 (Wednesday) at 2.30am.
