In June last year, Oppo launched the Find X, which was undoubtedly one of the best looking phones of 2018. It featured a motorised slider for the front & rear camera, a full-screen design with no notch or cutout & more. In fact, it is one of those phones which paved the way for motorised camera mechanisms that we see on a lot of phones today.
Today, Oppo’s VP, Brian Shen, posted a few images of an upcoming device from the brand featuring the “Waterfall Screen”. This could be the Oppo Find Y, which has already been trademarked by the company.
Well, you might not see anything unique in the display when you look at it from the front but take a look at the sides & you will know why the company calls it a “Waterfall Screen”. The display has a huge curve on both the sides, which is something we haven’t seen on any phone yet. Yes, we have seen curved screens like on Samsung’s flagships, but this is way more than that.
The left & right edges are curved at 88-degrees (almost 90-degree), so it makes the whole viewing experience more immersive. This means this phone (maybe the Oppo Find Y) is most likely coming with an almost 100% screen-to-body ratio. Compared tot he Oppo Find X, the phone is taller, so maybe this is going to be yet another phone with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio.
