We were impressed with Oppo's Find X5 Pro last year, so we have high hopes for its successor. As previously announced, the upcoming Find X6 Pro has the basic specs you'd expect from a 2023 flagship: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, a 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor for the main camera, a brilliant 6.82-inch 3168 x 1440 display. sensor: AMOLED screen, generous 5000mAh battery, IP68 ruggedness rating and up to 16GB RAM and 512GB storage. As a bonus, Oppo has brought an unseen periscopic telephoto camera to the 2020 Find X2 Pro to take advantage of its photography partnership with Hasselblad, as well as the MariSilicon X Neural Image Processor.
The Find X6 Pro has probably the biggest design outside of the Find X3 Pro, with three rear cameras, all 50 megapixels, and optical stabilization housed in a large circular island. The glass-encased top houses the main camera (23mm equivalent), ultra-wide camera (15mm equivalent), LED flash and the Hasselblad logo, while the bottom has a 3x optical zoom (65mm equivalent) or 6x periscope camera. "on-sensor" zoom. we'll get to that later. As for video, the 32MP (21mm equivalent) selfie camera is limited to 1080p at 30fps, but you can get up to 4K at 60fps.
While the 3x optical zoom of this new periscope camera looks more interesting than the Find X2 Pro's 5x, it offers 6x sensor zoom. This is thanks to the relatively large Sony IMX890 sensor (1/1.56 inch), which still offers a good number of pixels even when cropped. With the previous software I was able to capture clear and sharp images even at 6x. Of course, any other camera with 10x optical zoom will beat this hybrid solution, but it's still a viable alternative, especially given how well-suited the 3x optical zoom is for food photography and Hasselblad's new portrait mode, the latter says. colors and depth of field to mimic the classic Hasselblad XCD30 and XCD80 lenses.
As for the ultra-wide camera, it uses the IMX890 sensor, which seems to be the best offering in the category so far. As before, this camera features an arbitrarily shaped surface lens to minimize distortion, as well as a relatively large f/2.2 aperture.
Of course, the Find X6 Pro has many other advantages beyond photography. The 5,000mAh battery is now paired with a new 100W SuperVOOC fast charger that charges from zero to 100 percent in 28 minutes. Or you can use AirVOOC 50W wireless charging, which takes 52 minutes to fully charge. Oppo also claims to have doubled battery life since last year with its Battery Health Engine.
In addition to the usual stereo speakers, Oppo has implemented "Active Privacy Protection for Voice Calls" in the headphones, which can "improve sound insulation by 3.5 times to reduce sound leakage". In other words, people standing around you are less likely to hear your calls.
Finally, while not all flagship phones have an infrared remote, some may appreciate this feature on the Oppo Find X6 Pro to control TVs, air conditioners, and lights.
The Oppo Find X6 Pro will be available in China from March 24 in dual-tone options including Brown (Glass and Plant Leather), Black (Glass) and Green (Glass). Prices range from RMB 5,999 or about $873 (256GB storage with 12GB RAM) to RMB 6,999 or about $1,018 (512GB storage with 16GB RAM).
There's also the similar but cheaper Find X6, which replaces the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip with MediaTek's Dimensity 9200. Also, its main camera uses IMX890 instead of 1-inch IMX989, and its ultra-wide camera uses Samsung Uses JN1. it lacks a sensor and, unfortunately, a freeform lens. However, this phone still packs a generous 4,800mAh battery with 80W fast charging and an IP64 ruggedness rating. It will be offered in green, gold and black colors for 4,499 yuan or about $654 (12GB RAM with 256GB storage) to 4,999 yuan or about $727 (16GB RAM with 512GB storage).
We will focus on international availability, although it will likely be limited to Western Europe. Follow us for updates!
