Oppo Find X3 Pro price and release date – when will it be available?
The Oppo Find X3 series is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2021, with the price and release date still to be confirmed.
Oppo Find X3 Pro camera – a built-in microscope
The majority of the Find X3 Pro leaks we’ve seen so far come from prominent tipster Evan Blass on Voice.
Blass’ most recent post goes into depth on the Find X3 Pro’s unique, crater-shaped camera. The camera’s design reportedly marks a “significant technical achievement” for the brand, and the module houses a total of four sensors.
These include two 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 cameras primary lens – a primary lens and an ultra-wide lens – a 13-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 2-megapixel flash-ringed macro lens with 25x zoom. The lights circling the latter, along with its impressive zoom capabilities, will supposedly allow the phone to function as a “de facto microscope”, while the telephoto lens is the same seen on the standard Find X2 model.
Oppo Find X3 Pro design – it’s a looker
As far as the design goes, Blass gave us our first look at the phone when he shared a selection of renders to his Voice page in January.
The images show off the pronounced camera bump on the rear of the device, along with its spacious, 6.7-inch display and the colours the Find X3 Pro could be available in.
We know from Blass’ previous leaks that the Pro is expected to be 8mm thick with a curved screen and back, and weigh 190g. The backs will reportedly have a ceramic glaze or matte frosted glass design and come in black and blue, with white joining the range later on.
Oppo Find X3 Pro Specs and Performance – Snapdragon 888 on board
“The new Find X smartphone series will push the boundaries of display and camera”, announced Oppo in the press release announcing the phones impending arrival. The same announcement also revealed it would be powered by Qualcomm’s latest high-end chipset – the Snapdragon 888.
Prolific leaksters Evan Blass and Digital Chat Station have since revealed some of the other specs they expect to see on the new Oppo phone.
According to Blass, the Find X3 Pro – codenamed Fussi – will be marketed with the slogan “Awaken Color” to draw attention to its support of end-to-end 10-bit colour. The 6.7-inch, 1440 x 3216 display has an adaptive dynamic frame rate of 10Hz to 120Hz and is capable of displaying images in its quad camera’s 1.07 billion native colours.
Blass says the Pro will be fitted with a dual cell 4,500mAh battery and support 650w SuperVOOC 2.0 wired charging and 30w WOOC Air wireless charging. The NFC design also boasts a dual-body antenna, allowing users to make payments screen-down as well as with the back of their device.
Lastly, the Find X3 Pro will run Oppo’s Android 11 based ColorOS 11 software.
The display, camera and battery details were also leaked by Digital Chat Station on Twitter (via MyFixGuide), though the tipster appears to refer to the Find X3 series rather than specifying the Pro model as Blass did.
