    Find X features a premium design with 3D curved glass at its front and back and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The smartphone comes with a sliding design, which will reveal the selfie camera and the dual rear cameras when the camera app is opened. This way, the company has managed to achieve a high screen-to-body ratio of 93.8% and a truly bezel-less design. The smartphone does not have a physical or in-display fingerprint sensor but comes with the Face Unlock feature with a bunch of sensors.

    The Vivo X21 features a full-screen design with thin bezels. There is a notch on top of the display and the smartphone comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Even the NEX S has an in-display fingerprint sensor but it is touted to be the third-generation technology that will make it smaller yet more powerful. However, this smartphone does not have a notch on top of the screen. The other notable aspect of the NEX S is the presence of a pop-up selfie camera, which will rise and hide when the camera app is open or close.

    Find X flaunts a dual-camera module at its rear with a 16MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 20MP secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The camera has AI capabilities such as portrait mode and screen recognition and AR stickers. The smartphone flaunts a 25MP selfie camera with AI beautification and 3D emojis.

The Oppo Find X is likely to be launched in India on July 12. Given that the Oppo phone is the most advanced and innovative one among the three models, we can expect it to be expensive. We are yet to see how well the Find X and NEX S will be priced in the country to know if these devices. But one thing we are sure is that the Oppo flagship is an innovative smartphone out there.
