OPPO is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, though their presence in the United States and Europe is basically nonexistent. Data from the second quarter of 2018 shows that OPPO proudly sits in 5th place with 8.6% market share. The company released some unique devices last year like the OPPO Find X—the first smartphone with a (mechanized) slider mechanism to achieve a nearly bezel-less design without the use of a display cutout. This device started the slider design trend of late 2018, for better or worse. After all, the most unique smartphones in 2018 have tried to avoid the notch in one way or another. Apparently, OPPO found yet another way for ensuring a full-screen display on a smartphone.
Leaker Ishan Agarwal posted several images on his Twitter account of what appears to be an upcoming OPPO smartphone. These images went sent to him from an anonymous source. The front side of the smartphone shows a small chin and almost no bezel at the top. The rear side is where things get interesting, though. One image shows that the device has 3 rear cameras, but above that, you’ll find the selfie camera which pops up from the top of the device. We don’t know what powers this mechanism just yet. You can see a fingerprint scanner below the camera module and the OPPO branding below that. The rear side appears to be glass. According to Ishan, this device could either be the upcoming OPPO R19 or OPPO F11.
An unnamed and unannounced OPPO smartphone has been spotted in the wild. Reliable and popular tipster Ishan Agarwal was quick to share the live images of the handset, which he got from an anonymous source. As stated above, its identity remains unknown at the moment, but rumours are it could either be called OPPO F11 or OPPO R19. Interestingly, this could be the second smartphone from OPPO with an elevated front camera. However, unlike the Find X, the mysterious handset has a small pop-up camera at the top edge which looks similar to the Vivo NEX device.
As seen on the images, the selfie camera on the OPPO handset will retract from the center. It seems to come with an all-display fascia minus the notch, but a slight amount of bezel at the bottom. Furthermore, the device comes running Android 9 Pie with OPPO’s custom skin ColorOS 6.0 out of the box. Since the phone has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, it could be the upcoming F-series smartphone from OPPO as the last R-series smartphone – the OPPO R17 – had an in-display fingerprint sensor.
