OPPO Find X teardown reveals a pop-up mechanism that resembles the Vivo NEX

The OPPO Find X has never failed to impress us. From its exceptional internals to its physical makeup, the Find X is indeed a great find. Its recent teardown showed its organized sliding camera mechanism up close.

No doubt, the OPPO Find X is the hottest smartphone right now. Thanks to its interesting pop-up camera which houses all the camera lenses as well as the necessary sensors, it managed to capture the attention of many fans and is now taking the world by storm. Not to mention that it also packs top-of-the-line specs and features. Apparently, you are wondering how the pop-up mechanism really works. Lucky for you, someone conducted a teardown of the Find X so you don't have to do it yourself.

It is worth mentioning that OPPO's Find X isn't the first one to create a handset with a pop-up camera as the title was secured by Vivo's NEX. The only difference between the two is that the Vivo NEX only has the selfie-camera module springing out while in the OPPO Find X, the whole array of sensors sitting on a minimal-sized bezel slides out. While they seemed quite different from each other, both use the same mechanism: a linear actuator. It is made up of a motor, ribbon cables, and guide rails. The cables are hooked to the cameras, facial scanning hardware, and other components while the electric motor gets rotated by the screw in a linear motion. Unlike the NEX, the Find X doesn't have any springs to protect the setup.

Surely, the entire mechanism spans a large volume in the phone's internals. However, OPPO still succeeded to cram a massive 3730mAh battery pack to the Find X, which supports a 20W Super VOOC fast charging technology. It also comes with a biometric authentication using the user's facial features. A Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage also sit at the helm. To keep everything from heating up, metal spreaders are scattered across the board. We are surely impressed by the Find X's internal makeup.
