How the OPPO Find X motorized camera works

This is how your amazing mobile camera works

Sure you've heard OPPO Find X, the new device of the Chinese firm that has revolutionized the market. Why? Because he has achieved record screen ratio: nothing more or nothing less than 93.8 percent. This has been achieved thanks to a motorized camera inserted in the chassis that hides when we do not use it, getting us to dispense with the notch

But how does this mechanism work? How does all the technology behind this ingenious system work? It is not a trivial issue since many advances are needed to make everything work perfectly. We are going to talk about the technological wonder that has made OPPO famous.

This exploded view was carried out by MyFixGuide, whose people have made an article with the entire disassembly process, as well as photos and descriptions of what we will find if we check the back of the OPPO Find X. Let's see what is hidden behind this device:

The key to this system lies in an engine that pushes both sides of the structure, that is, the left and right side. If we look closely, we will see that the center block is the one that drives the two sides of the structure, pushing up all the part that houses the cameras. In a GIF it looks better:

The central white block drives the entire system, and since the side parts are slidable, the engine has no difficulty moving the entire structure. Being a structure "independent" from the rest of the phone, it can be separated without any problem, although of course even below, protected, are the connectors of the motherboard.

An important detail about OPPO cameras is that, unlike other current Android devices, It does use a biometric system for facial recognition. Something very similar to what the iPhone X has, being safer and more efficient than the competition. In the following image we can see it:

In the same block where the camera is housed, the infrared sensor, the proximity sensor, a spot projector, etc. Being the module hidden in the chassis of the device and only coming out when necessary, we protect these sensors from the weather and possible blows. Although seeing moving parts in such a delicate mobile device does not give us much hope.

There are several things to keep in mind. The first, leaving aside the fragility of the phone, are the components. Although the phone can be opened like almost any current device, that is, melting the glue that joins the back with the chassis and removing it, finding spare parts for such a unique mobile will not only be expensive, but impossible to obtain by third parties.

For its part, it is undeniable that OPPO Find X is a technological wonder. The camera's sliding system is simple but effective, and very ingenious. It is revolutionary, and we will soon see variants of other manufacturers of this technology. We leave you a gallery with the rest of the exploded view.
