Oppo Find X3 Pro launched with QHD+ 120Hz AMOLED screen, 50MP quad-rear cameras, Snapdragon 888 SoC, and more
Oppo's highly-awaited Find X3 series of smartphones are finally here. The company has switched things up with the naming this time around, opting to ditch the vanilla Oppo Find X3 altogether. Instead, we get the Oppo Find X3 Pro, Oppo Find X3 Neo and Oppo Find X3 Lite. The hardware differences between the three variants are significant, too.
As its name somewhat suggests, the Oppo Find X3 Pro will be the proverbial king of the hill. The Oppo Find X3 Pro gets you a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel clocked at 120Hz. Oppo advertised that its display would be one of the most colour-accurate on the market, with support for 10-bit colour depth, Dolby Vision, and HDR 10. Oppo hasn't specified if the Find X3 Pro has a MEMC chip. There is no reason for Oppo to not include it, considering that the chip was present on its predecessor. The smartphone is also IP68 water and dust resistant.
One will find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset under the Oppo Find X3 Pro's hood. It can be coupled with up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Unfortunately, the smartphone does not come with a micro SD card slot. The smartphone draws power from a 4,500mAh battery that leverages Oppo's Super VOOC 2.0 technology to push the charging speed to 65W. Wireless charging at 30W is supported too, but only with compatible chargers.
Moving on to the cameras, we get four of them on the Oppo Find X3 Pro. The 50MP Sony IMX766 primary sensor is assisted by a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens of the same make, a 13MP telephoto lens that offers up to 2X optical zoom and a 3MP macro lens, which Oppo calls a microscope lens. It can allegedly offer up to 30X optical and a total of 60X zoom. It comes with a light around it too, presumably to help with illumination. Selfies and video calls are handled by a 32MP module. Oddly enough, video recording is capped at 4K 60 FPS. We can't help but wonder why support for 8K resolution was scrapped, considering that all of the Find X3 Pro's competitors have it.
Other Oppo Find X3 Pro specs include Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, 5G, and Wi-Fi 6. The smartphone does not ship with a headphone jack and runs Android 11 based Color OS 11.2 out of the box. There's an in-display fingerprint scanner, too. Its stereo speakers are Dolby Atmos certified. The Oppo Find X3 Pro will be available for pre-order on March 18. It hits shelves on April 01 for a price of EUR 1,149 and comes in two colourways, namely Gloss Black and Blue.
