The Find X6 Pro from Oppo features a periscopic camera and a 1-inch sensor
Oppo’s Find X5 Pro pleased us last year, so we naturally have high hopes for its replacement. The upcoming Find X6 Pro, as previously announced, has all the essential components you’d expect from a 2023 flagship, including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, Sony’s IMX989 “1-inch” sensor for the primary camera, a vivid 6.82-inch 3,168 x 1,440 AMOLED screen, a sizable 5,000mAh battery, an IP68 ruggedness rating, and up to 16GB of RAM plus 512GB of storage. In addition, Oppo included a periscopic telephoto camera, which had been absent since the Find X2 Pro from 2020, in order to take full advantage of its cooperation with Hasselblad for photography and its own MariSilicon X image neural processor.
The three back cameras on the Find X6 Pro are housed inside a sizable circular island, which is perhaps the largest outward change since the Find X3 Pro. All three cameras have a 50-megapixel resolution and optical stabilisation. The main camera (23mm equivalent), the ultra-wide camera (15mm equivalent), the LED flash, and the Hasselblad logo are all housed in the glass-covered upper half, while the periscopic camera with 3x optical zoom (65mm equivalent) or 6x “in-sensor” zoom—we’ll get to that later—is located in the lower part. Video recording is possible up to 4K at 60 frames per second, however the 32-megapixel punch-hole selfie camera (21mm equivalent) can only record in 1080p at 30 frames per second.
