Oppo just revealed a huge smartphone with a lot of promises on imaging. The Oppo Find X6 Pro was revealed on March 21, 2023, China time. Like the recently revealed Nubia Z50 Ultra, the Find X6 Pro inches more to a real camera’s imaging than a traditional smartphone camera.
In the past, smartphone makers just embedded camera sensors and optics made for smartphones but this new breed of flagship devices wants to be the actual cameras. And the Oppo Find X6 Pro has the help of Hasselblad. Even the design of the camera module resembles a real camera.
The Oppo Find X6 Pro has a large circular camera module on the upper half of the back of the device. This camera is home to a so-called “hyperlight” 50 MP tri-camera setup in which all three cameras are the main snapper, each rocking a 50 MP sensor.
There is a 50 MP 1-inch sensor wide-angle camera, a 50 MP free-form super wide-angle camera, and a 50 MP hyperlight periscope telephoto camera. Over at the front, there is a 32 MP portrait camera on its massive 6.83-inch curved AMOLED display.
The display offers up to 2,500 nits of peak brightness, 240 Hz touch sampling rate, 1.07 billion colors, and at 3,168 x 1,440 resolution (with an eyewatering 510 ppi). The display is complete with a Corning Gorilla Victus 2 for protection.
Under the hood, the newly announced Find X6 Pro benefits from Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that boasts an octacore processor with up to 3.187 GHz clock speed and Oppo-developed MariSilicon X NPU. The device is outfitted with the fastest memories there are today, namely, LPDDR5X and UFS 4.0, and is offered in a choice of 12 + 256, 16 + 256, and 16 + 512 configurations.
Rounding up the basic spec sheet details is a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 100 W super flash charge (wired) and 50 W wireless flash charge. The battery is a dual-cell battery, obviously, in order to support super fast charging. Oh right. It is IP68 rated. But of course, it is.
Oppo is pulling all stops for its latest flagship and as such, the Oppo Find X6 Pro is naturally not cheap by Android devices standard in China. The base configuration starts at 5,999 yuan (about US$871) – that’s a whole 2,000 yuan (approx. US$290) more than the starting price of Nubia’s flagship Z50 Ultra and tops out at 6,999 yuan (around US$1,016) for the top configuration.
