OPPO has reportedly finally obtained a certification for the Find X3 (or PEDM00) from the Chinese authorities, suggesting a launch announcement for its flagship series will follow shortly. Its new TENAA images show a phone quite like X3 Pro leaks to date, although it might have a different rear panel and camera arrangement.

Initial OPPO Find X3 flagship smartphone leaks gave the puzzling impression that it consisted of only 1 Pro variant, powered by the Snapdragon 888 and exhibiting a new "crate" (or, more realistically, iPhone-clone) design for its elaborate rear camera module. However, it was eventually joined on the rumor circuit by Neo and Lite variants, and, eventually, by a plain X3 option.

The latter is now expected to launch with the Snapdragon 870 SoC, thus implying a departure from Find X-series flagships with a justifiable reputation for super-premium prices. The vanilla X3 (or PEDM00) has now been discovered on the TENAA database by the leaker Digital Chat Station.

The images posted as a result show a phone nearly identical to renders attributed to the Pro variant, although it seems to have a rear panel with a different, duller texture. This, as SparrowsNews speculates, could be due to the use of vegan leather or something similar here.

The Find X3's new leak also allegedly confirms that it has a 6.78-inch 2412 x 1080 OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate that upholds OPPO's previously-touted color-accuracy system to boot. Then again, it is not clear whether it will have the same camera specs as its Pro sibling or not.

That phone is currently slated to rock dual Sony IMX766 sensors specially tuned by its OEM, as well as a 3MP macro shooter with an advanced 25x "microscope" zoom. This has allegedly been used for an extreme close-up of an insect wing to create an image posted to Weibo by Ice Universe.

Then again, Digital Chat Station seems to mention only 1 IMX766 with respect to the X3. As for the Lite and Neo, these devices are projected to be re-badged Reno5 and 5 Pros respectively, and are thus likely to launch with their current camera set-ups, not to mention their 65W fast charging, 90Hz refresh rates and 5G processors.

(Alternatively, go ahead and grab an international version of the Reno5 Pro right now on Amazon.)

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
