Oppo’s new flagship, the Find X3 Pro has taken its final form today after series of leaks and rumors. The Find X3 Pro is one of the visually enticing phones with an audacious design and some exciting features to begin with.
We call the design audacious just because of the phone’s camera bump, which seems quite unique with the way it rises from the same piece of glass adhered to the back of the phone.
Gracing that camera bump is probably one of the most powerful cameras out in the market. A primary camera and an ultrawide unit, both of which have 50MP 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX766 sensors, meaning both shooters will output nondistinguishable images, though there’s no real evidence of that right now.
Right alongside that beefy camera setup is a 3-megapixel microlens. And not to be mistaken, it’s no ordinary macro lens that is found on some of today’s smartphones. Oppo says that the lens is capable of up to 60x magnification — note down the word ‘magnification’, it’s more of a microscope than a macro lens.
There’s no periscope zoom lens, which was a staple in Oppo’s recent devices (Oppo was one of the first to implement it on a smartphone). Oppo, however, is trying to compensate with a telephoto lens, albeit not so powerful. It’s a 13MP sensor with a 2x optical zoom over the primary camera. The image quality coming out of it won’t be as worse as we think but it’s just that the Find X3 Pro won’t be able to match the oomph of its predecessor’s 5x telephoto lens.
Another major highlight of the Find X3 Pro is its display; it offers a 3216 x 1440 LTPO OLED panel that goes up to 1,300 nits of peak brightness and has a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Oppo is insanely hyping the display out of the fact that it’s a 10-bit panel and it has integrated color management into its ColorOS. What this means for normal users is that you’ll be able to view pictures and videos taken from the cameras with more than a billion colors, in comparison to the 16.7 million colors on normal smartphone screens.
The internals on the Find X3 Pro is pretty usual to what you would normally find in a flagship now: a Snapdragon 888 chipset with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There’s a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging as well as 30W wireless charging which can fully charge the phone in about 80 minutes.
The phone’s only one storage variant (12GB/256GB) will go for a price of €1,149, which is about NPR 159,700 in Nepal. The phone will be available in either anti-glare Blue Matte or Gloss Black color options with sales beginning from March 30.
