Oppo Find X All Screen Mobile Phone

Instead of a small slide out, the whole top side of the phone moves up to reveal the dual camera on the rear and the selfie camera on the front along with other elements. And it needs just half a second to do so. When the slider is retracted, the bezels are quite thin, even the bottom one (Oppo boasts 92.25% screen to body ratio).

The 6.4″ AMOLED screen is left with a regular outline – the familiar rounded rectangle. Taking a cue from the Galaxy flagships, the left and right side of the screen is curved, which helps keep the phone narrow enough to handle comfortably despite its screen size. (GSM Arena)

Samsung Galaxy A6 2018 Specs and Features

Straight out of the J-series comes the chipset – Samsung’s own Exynos 7870 which we really liked for its power efficiency all the way back when it was introduced with the J7 (2016). Hint, hint – it is a bit old. The base model comes with a pretty adequate 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, though a higher-specced 4GB/64GB version is also available in some places. There’s a microSD slot too – a dedicated one regardless of SIM count.

The A8 (2018) lends its primary camera – the 16MP f/1.7 shooter replaces the J5 (2017)’s 13MP one. It’s the same thing on the front – 16MP f/1.9 selfie cam is lifted off the A8 (2018), only there it was joined by a secondary 5MP module for depth detection. No such thing here, though, just the 16MP camera. And a flash, there’s a front-facing flash. (GSM Arena).
