Oppo will introduce its Find X3 Pro flagship tomorrow, but a plethora of leaks have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect.
The event is scheduled for March 11, 11:30 GMT, and will be live-streamed, and we’ll provide a link once the time comes. But before that, here’s what the rumor says the Oppo Find X3 Pro and its siblings will offer.
At least three phones
The Oppo Find X3 family will include the Find X3 Pro flagship, Find X3 Lite, and Find X3 Neo. There are also rumors for a fourth, vanilla version with a Snapdragon 870 being exclusive for the Chinese market, but it will likely be introduced at a separate event.
Speaking about the other two non-flagships, they are hardly new devices – the Lite is likely a re-branded Oppo Reno5 5G, while the Neo could be the Reno5 Pro+ 5G that has a dated Snapdragon 865 chipset and a periscope lens on the back.
The Find X3 Pro’s predecessor came with a massive 6.7” screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support and QHD+ resolution. The upcoming flagship will mostly match those specs but it will be an LTPO panel with adaptive refresh between 5Hz and 120Hz.
According to one leakster, the panel is manufactured by Samsung Display and will be a first for a non-Korean phone since the Galaxy S21 also utilizes the same technology. Other than that, the resolution will be the same, as well as the slightly curved edges.
Oppo Find X2 Pro
A report suggested Sony is working on a custom-made camera sensor for the Find X3 Pro, and it will be called IMX789. Later we heard the new flagship might have the IMX766 unit, spotted in the Reno5 Pro+, or rather two of those – one for the main shooter, another for the ultrawide-angle camera.
The Oppo Find X3 Pro will skip on the periscope lens and likely introduce a standard telephoto camera with up to 3x optical zoom.
Looks are always subjective, but we can all agree the Find X2 Pro was one of the better-looking phones of 2020. Oppo has always strived to create good-looking phones, and the Find X3 Pro is definitely coming with a standout design too.
Its rear hump with sloped inclines from all four sides will certainly make it easy to tell apart, but it may also offer usability benefits.
The Oppo Find X2 Pro lacked any wireless charging, and hopefully, the manufacturer will fix this in the Find X3 Pro. We expect to see a 4,500 mAh battery with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging through the USB-C.
We expect all the latest bells and whistles like Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and 5G capabilities in other specs. The final unknown is the price and retail package contents – we’ll find those out along at the event tomorrow.
