Oppo took the wraps off the Find X3 Pro on Thursday. The flagship smartphone from Oppo packs some impressive specs on paper. Starting off, we have the latest and greatest from Qualcomm, the snapdragon 888 SoC, 5G, a large 10-bit 1 billion color display among other things. But before going further, let’s talk about the design which is unique and not really all original at the same time.
The iPhone 12 Pro called. It wants its design back!
In our experience over the years with mobile technology, one thing we have noticed is how other brands follow a trend set by the Apple iPhone. Yes yes, the headphone jack, notch and all. However, here we would like to touch base on the design decisions by Oppo.
You see the camera island on the Oppo Find X3 Pro looks like a mirrored image of the same on the iPhone 12 Pro. But yes, as mentioned earlier that the design is unique and unoriginal at the same time, meaning the rear panel is fitted with a single piece of glass which forms a curve around the camera island. Coming to the front of the device, we have the usual bezel-less display with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera.
Oppo has equipped the Find X3 Pro with 12GB LPDDR5 memory. It comes in just one 256GB variant.
A 6.7″ AMOLED display is at the front of the Oppo Find X3 Pro. The panel is of the LTPO variety and boasts a Quad HD+ resolution. The refresh rate is variable ranging from 5Hz -120Hz for fluidity and efficiency at the same time. The touch sampling is rated at 240Hz to make things that much a bit smoother.
A quad-camera system sits on the iPhone 12 Pro-like camera island. As in, we have got a main wide (OIS and EIS phase detection and one ultra-wide and both of these are Sony IMX766 50MP sensors. Moving along there’s a 13MP telephoto unit and a capable 3MP macro camera. The selfie camera is 32MP in resolution.
The battery capacity onboard is 4500mAh, which is okay-ish. Oppo has given AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge which enables fast 30W wireless charging. The company claims that the battery will charge from 0-100 in just 80 minutes, which is impressive.
Upping that, Oppo’s SuperVOOC 2.0 is here rated at 65W helping the cell charge from empty to full in a mind-boggling 30 minutes. And yes, Oppo does bundle the 65W charger in the box. They didn’t mimic apple on that though, which is a good thing!
Connectivity-wise, along with 5G, Bluetooth 5.2, and new-gen Wi-Fi 6E is onboard the Find X3 Pro. Oppo’s ColorOS 11.2 runs on top of Android 11. The smartphone is priced at EUR 1,149 (approx. INR 99, 800/USD 1,380).
