Oppo is finally launching the Find X3 series today, starting with the flagship Find X3 Pro. The USP of this device is its cameras which will result in excellent photography. Two cameras of this phone, the main camera, and the ultra-wide camera are packed by the same flagship sensor. There is also an addition of a rare 30x microscopic camera. It supports 10-bit color across the primary cameras, storage, and display for more faithful reproduction and hence Oppo calls this the “Billion Color Phone”.
This phone features a 6.7-inch curved LTPO AMOLED panel with a sharp QHD+ resolution (3,216 x 1,440), a slick 120Hz variable refresh rate, 1,300-nit peak brightness, and 100-percent DCI-P3 gamut. There is also a 32-megapixel f/2.4 selfie camera in the top-left punch hole here, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader.
On its back, Oppo crafted a single piece of glass — a 40-hour process per piece, that flows naturally over the camera bump and tapers into the metallic frame. The “Gloss Black” unit looks elegant from all kinds of angles. The curvature of the 8.26mm-thick body feels really classy.
There is a total of four cameras on the back, three of which are laid out in a similar manner as the recent flagship iPhones, but mirrored. Oppo explained that this triangular arrangement is the most efficient way to place the cameras as close together as possible, which is key to seamless zooming and accurate portrait mode.
The Find X3 Pro comes preloaded with the Android 11-based ColorOS 11.2 which feels smooth because of the 120Hz display and lean coding.
Oppo Find X3 Pro: Primary cameras
For the impressive camera setup on the Find X2 Pro, Oppo stuffed a new flagship sensor — the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 — into both the main camera (f/1.8, with optical stabilization) and the ultra-wide camera (f/2.2, 110 degrees) on the Find X3 Pro, so that they would perform similarly and support 10-bit color capture (HEIF format only).
Sample shots from both cameras look very realistic on the phone’s screen with good natural color reproduction even when viewed on other devices. The low-light performance of the camera is also pretty good. The beefed-up ultra-wide camera also came in handy while capturing 4K video with nice with accurate colors and little distortion.
Oppo Find X3 Pro: Microscopic camera
The microscopic camera on the hump is a rare 3-megapixel f/3.0 which is the third big camera of this device, it does 30x magnification natively and supports FHD video recording. Since the focal distance is between 1mm and 3mm only, this camera is equipped with a small ring light to light up your subject. Despite the relatively low resolution, the photos from this camera will come out sharp.
Oppo ditched the 5x periscopic telephoto camera in favor of a 5x hybrid zoom shooter, and the results were disappointing. As we know hybrid zoom often washes out fine details, namely text on one’s badge, lines on hair, and patterns on clothes.
Oppo Find X3 Pro: Vooc charging
This phone supports VOOC fast charging. Using the bundled 65W SuperVOOC charger, the 4,500mAh battery takes just 10 minutes to go from zero to 40 percent. It also supports AirVOOC wireless charging, with a 30W output being able to fully charge the battery in 80 minutes.
And finally, let’s look forward to its set of ringtones and notification sounds created by award-winning composer Hans Zimmer. It is also expected that Find X3 Pro won’t be headed to the US, but the company will shed light on global availability early next week.
