This could be the Oppo Find Y with a “Waterfall Screen”?

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.

We know that the upcoming Vivo NEX smartphone is coming with an extremely curved screen, similar to what Oppo showcased today. Now, this alleged Oppo Find Y is pretty slim, so there is definitely not a pop-up or motorised camera mechanism. It is most likely having an under-display selfie camera, something that Oppo showcased at the MWC Shanghai.

If it is the Oppo Find Y, expect some high-end specifications like 10X Zoom, Snapdragon 855 Plus, high-refresh-rate screen, in-screen camera & fingerprint scanner & more.
