Oppo is a BBK owned Chinese smartphone manufacturer company which launched their latest flagship device Oppo find X. It is getting huge media coverage as it might be the first complete bezel-less smartphone of the year 2018. They have achieved it with the help of a motorized section in Oppo find X which reveals its hidden cameras and sensor. The most interesting part is the camera department as both the front facing as well as backside camera housings are in the motorized section. This brings the waterproofing capabilities of Oppo find X as water easily goes inside moving part. SO to test this, we are performing Oppo Find X waterproof test.

Oppo Find X Splash Proof Test
In Splash proof test, we will test the device to withstand an accidental water splash to see whether the device survives in such condition. So when we subject Oppo find X to an artificial water splash, it immediately gets water damage and switches off itself. The water goes inside the motorised chamber of the device. This shows that the device is not splashproof at all.
