Oppo Find X6: New flagship smartphone debuts with minor changes from last year's Find X5
Oppo has presented the Find X6 in China, one-half of the Find X6 series. While the Find X6 succeeds the Find X5, Oppo has made several changes between generations. On the one hand, the Find X6 is larger and heavier than its predecessor, which measures 160.3 x 72.6 x 8.7 mm and weighs 196 g. In comparison, the Find X6 measures 162.9 x 74.1 x 9 mm and weighs 207 g.
The Find X6 also has a larger display, which spans 6.74-inches and outputs at 2,772 x 1,240 pixels. Oppo states that the display peaks at 1,450 nits, 450 nits more than the Find X5. Additionally, Oppo has swapped the Snapdragon 888 for a MediaTek Dimensity 9200, which we have already reviewed in the Vivo X90 Pro. According to our database, the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 should deliver a 10% performance boost over the Snapdragon 888 but with slightly higher power consumption.
The differences between the Find X5 and Find X6 dry up in other areas, though. For example, the pair share the same 50 MP optically-stabilised primary camera with a 1/1.56-inch optical format and 1.0 µm pixels. The Find X6 also maintains a 50 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, although this has a smaller optical format and smaller pixels but a wider aperture and field of view.
Meanwhile, Oppo has upgraded the Find X6 to a 50 MP periscope telephoto camera. Oppo reports that the new telephoto camera offers an f/2.6 aperture, a 65 mm equivalent focal length, a 1/1.56-inch optical format, 1.0 µm wide pixels and 2.8x optical zoom. In other words, the periscope camera relies on the same Sony IMX766 sensor as the Find X6's primary camera. The 4,800 mAh battery from the Find X5 returns, as does 80 W fast charging. Unfortunately, the Find X6 drops 30 W wireless and 10 W reverse wireless support.
The Find X6 starts at CNY 4,499 (~US$654) in China with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Alternatively, Oppo will offer the device with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage for CNY 4,999 (~US$727). Oppo has not confirmed whether the Find X6 will be available outside China. Currently, it is the only member of the Find X6 series that is expected to launch globally, though.
