Oppo's Find X smartphone launched during the summer, and it had a very attractive design that eschewed the notch design that the iPhone X popularized (and was quickly followed by many others). Instead, the Find X got around the need for a notch by using a motorized, pop-up camera that hid away when not needed.

Also, from what we can see in these shots, there is no apparent notch in the display as well. The motorized camera that pops up from the top of the smartphone with
