After a drawn-out series of leaks and teases, Oppo has announced its 2021 flagship in full. The Find X3 Pro is a sleek, powerful phone with a surprising design and some novel highlights to match. It’s additionally a significant gadget for Oppo, which as of late surpassed Huawei in market share according to Counterpoint Research.
The Find X3 Pro’s most arresting visual component is its camera hump, which nearly looks organic in the manner in which it seamlessly rises from a similar piece of glass as the remainder of the phone’s backboard. Joined with the completion, which on my unit is aggressively shiny and gleaming, the phone looks similar to it was manufactured out of Terminator 2-style liquid metal.
The camera system itself is no less irregular. There’s an essential camera and an ultra-wide that both utilize 50-megapixel 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX766 sensors, which means the picture quality ought to be comparable across both, however, we’ll need to perceive how that confirms by and by.
There’s additionally a 3-megapixel micro-lens, which shouldn’t be confused with the futile large-scale cameras found in certain telephones today. Oppo asserts up to 60x magnification, and it’s more similar to a magnifying lens than a large-scale focal point — you can take pictures of things like sub-pixel designs on screens, and there’s even a ring light to enlighten the subject. I don’t know whether this will be a selling point for some individuals, however, in my initial testing I can affirm that it’s really cool.
There is a zooming focal point here; however, it’s simply a 13-megapixel sensor with a 2x optical zoom over the essential camera. That is not really a downgrade, since it could improve picture quality at mid-range shooting distances, yet it implies the Find X3 Pro will not have anyplace close to as much zoom reach as its 5x-fax prepared predecessor.
The Find X3 Pro’s display is another key component; it’s a 3216 x 1440 LTPO OLED panel with a peak of 1,300 nits and a revive pace of up to 120Hz. Oppo is overemphasizing the way that it’s a 10-cycle board and that it’s coordinated full-way color management into Color OS; this implies photographs and videos captured with the cameras can be displayed within excess of a billion tones, instead of the 16.7 million tones on ordinary cell phone screens.
The Find X3 Pro has typically flagship-level internals: a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of capacity. The 4,500mAh battery can be quickly energized at 65W, and Oppo has at last accepted wireless charging on a flagship of a 30W system that can completely charge the phone in 80 minutes. The absence of remote charging was my greatest knock against the Find X2 Pro, so Oppo’s looking great so far here. It is set to become available in UK on April 14 at a starting price of £1,099. Oppo will tell more about global availability next week.
