Oppo’s Find X6 Pro is the latest smartphone to feature a massive 1-inch camera sensor, following in the footsteps of Xiaomi and sister-company Vivo. This new addition has created quite a buzz among photography enthusiasts and content creators who are looking for top-notch camera performance in their mobile devices.
The Find X6 Pro comes with a primary camera that uses Sony’s 50-megapixel 1-inch-type IMX989 sensor, which allows for better light sensitivity and lower image noise, resulting in excellent image quality, especially in low light situations. However, Oppo has not ignored the secondary cameras on the phone and has made sure to include impressive telephoto and ultrawide camera specs.
The phone boasts a large circular camera bump on the rear that contains the cameras, with the ultrawide camera having a 110-degree field of view, f/2.2 aperture, and the ability to handle macro-esque photography with a minimum focus distance of 4cm. Meanwhile, the Periscope telephoto camera offers 3x optical zoom and a 6x hybrid zoom.
Apart from the camera specs, the Find X6 Pro is packed with other flagship features. It is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, making it an incredibly fast device. The phone has a 6.82-inch 120Hz OLED display with a peak brightness of 2500 nits, making it one of the brightest smartphone screens available today.
Additionally, the Find X6 Pro comes with a 5,000 mAh battery that can be fast charged at 100W with a cable and 50W wirelessly. It is also IP68 rated for dust and water resistance, and you can choose between 12GB or 16GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of storage.
While the Find X6 Pro’s sensor size is impressive, it is important to note that sensor size is not the only factor that contributes to excellent image quality. Most smartphones rely heavily on software to enhance their photography, which is why Oppo has some software features up its sleeve. A Hasselblad collaboration has resulted in a portrait mode on the Find X6 Pro that emulates the “colors and depth of field” of the Swedish camera manufacturer’s XCD30 and XCD80 lenses.
The Find X6 Pro is launching in China today alongside the regular Find X6. In China, the Find X6 Pro starts at 5999 yuan (around $872) for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, while the non-Pro Find X6 starts at 4499 yuan (around $654) for 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. The company has not confirmed whether the X6 phones will see a broader international release in the future.
The lack of confirmation regarding international release is a departure from the Oppo Find X5 Pro, which was sold in both Europe and Asia. However, with the Find X6 Pro’s impressive camera specs and flagship features, it is likely to attract the attention of smartphone users worldwide. Oppo has shown that it is committed to providing top-notch camera performance in its devices and has made sure to include impressive telephoto and ultrawide camera specs to complement the 1-inch primary sensor.
Oppo’s Find X6 Pro has joined the ranks of smartphones with a 1-inch camera sensor. With its impressive camera specs and flagship features, it is set to create a buzz among photography enthusiasts and content creators alike. While the phone’s sensor size is impressive, Oppo has also made sure to include software features that enhance photography performance.
While the phone is currently only available in China, it is likely to attract the attention of smartphone users worldwide, and Oppo’s commitment to providing top-notch camera performance is sure to keep it in the conversation as more users seek out high-end photography capabilities in their mobile devices.
