Oppo launches Find X3 Series, including the X3 Pro with two 50-megapixel cameras capable of capturing a billion colours

Last modified date

The three new Oppo smartphones go on sale from April 14th, starting at £379 and rising to £1099 for the flagship Find X3 Pro.

Just over a year after the launch of Oppo’s Find X2 Series (which included my highest rated smartphone of 2020, the Find X2 Pro), the Chinese phone maker has launched three smartphones for 2021.

Perhaps a little surprising is the fact that the flagship Find X3 Pro has lost the periscope zoom (which gave the X2 Pro the ability to shoot at 60x digital zoom), but has gained two 50-megapixel image sensors instead – each capable of capturing over a billion colours – on top of a regular telephoto and enhanced macro camera, called a Microlens.

Oppo has included a range of still and video recording modes, and the company has published a number of samples that can be viewed in my compilation video below.

Like last year’s flagship, the Find X3 Pro also has a billion colour display, and this time around also gets an IP68 rating and 30W wireless charging, as an alternative to the standard 65W wired charging option that continues on from last year’s model.

The Find X3 Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, and the phone comes with 12GB of RAM and a 4,500mAh battery.

Another surprise this year is a reduced level of internal storage. Instead of 512GB, the Find X3 Pro now has ‘just’ 256GB. There’s no vegan leather option for the UK either, although that’s certainly a possibility for a future special-edition release.

Two other models complete the lineup; the Find X3 Neo (powered by Snapdragon 865) and the Find X3 Lite (powered by Snapdragon 765G) meaning all models are 5G as standard. All models also include an OLED display, along with variations on screen resolution, brightness and camera configurations.

All three phones will be on sale from mid-April.

Press Release

London, UK, 11th March 2021: Today OPPO, the world’s leading smart device brand, has  launched its new series of 5G premium smartphones, the Find X3 series, including the Find X3 Pro 5G, Find X3 Neo 5G and Find X3 Lite 5G. With a cutting-edge quad camera and a one billion-colour immersive screen, the flagship Find X3 Pro has been carefully designed to capture true-to-life images as you’ve never seen them before. 

Picture perfect with DSLR-level features 

The OPPO Find X3 Pro is the brand’s first ever smartphone series to capture and display up to one billion colours in a single image – ten times more than the human eye can detect. 

The crown jewel of the new series, the OPPO Find X3 Pro, is the first smartphone to combine both two primary 50MP cameras (wide-angle and ultra-wide angle) with a new-to-market Sony IMX 766 imaging sensor, to revolutionise how users film and take photographs on the move.

In Cinematic Mode, the Find X3 Pro delivers wider dynamic range and colour depth with professional DSLR-level features capturing high-quality video. The camera offers full manual control over shutter speed and focus – making it a videographer’s best friend. Plus, the Find X3 Pro debuts an ultra wide-angle camera with a freeform surface lens that helps drastically reduce distortion around the edges of photos and videos.

Maggie Xue, President of OPPO Western Europe, said: “The Find X Series continues to enjoy huge success globally. The new Find X3 Series pushes innovation synonymous with OPPO even further. Our flagship Find X3 Pro 5G smartphone combines true image capture performance with a one-of-a-kind, elegant design. With this new series our focus was to help customers bring colours to life and inspire them to explore new possibilities with the latest technology.”

Maximum display in a minimalist design

OPPO’s incredible display housed in the compact and sleek design of the Find X3 Pro is driven by a 10-bit-full-path Colour Management System which captures, stores and displays photos in unparalleled colour with cutting-edge clarity. With an unflinching focus on premium design, the camera module has been encased in the back panel so that it blends in with the clean, streamlined and ergonomic design. Built with durability in mind, the Find X3 Pro is both dust and water resistant, perfect for creators on the move. 

Powerful processing for unparalleled performance 

The OPPO Find X3 Pro 5G is a true powerhouse, running on the latest and most advanced, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G Mobile Platform. Users can easily multitask and switch between the most demanding apps, while enjoying 5G connectivity.

Whether users are gaming or binge-watching the latest Netflix series the combination of the Qualcomm mobile platform and 4500mAh battery allows for continued unparalleled performance. Plus, with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge, 30W AirVOOC Wireless Flash charge and reverse charging, this smartphone will always be ready to go.
