Finally, after announcements and rumors that showed a striking design, the information is confirmed and we officially know the new phones of the OPPO Find series. And the new OPPO Find X3 Pro 5G stands as the new flagship of the brand so far this year, showing that striking aesthetic and a very curious combination in the cameras.
As one would think, concerning the OPPO Find X2 Pro, components such as the processor and those aspects of the design that we have mentioned and will now present are updated. We also see a larger battery and what stands out is the commitment to the microscopic camera, keeping the telephoto lens, and optical image stabilization in the main lens.

A real hump in times of flashy modules
From the OPPO Find X2 Pro, part of the design lines is retained, especially in terms of the curve. The screen is again curved on the sides, not too pronounced, and the back too, the latter having a glossy finish for the two available colors: blue and black.
The camera module merges with the back, showing a solution of continuity that differs from the usual modules (with a base or piece on the back itself) and encompassing the cameras, unlike what we saw in the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G or the LG Velvet (also without module).
The screen has been retained concerning the OPPO Find X2 Pro, which in this case is not exactly negative far from it because it has a resolution typical of the high-end and an optional refresh rate higher than 60Hz. Specifically, it is a 6.7-inch AMOLED QHD+ panel with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and a pixel density of 525 pixels per inch, a value that is very good and that usually gives a good experience in terms of definition.
It is also noteworthy that the maximum peak brightness is 1,200 nits, which should be more than enough to look good in direct sunlight. It has HDR10+ certification and the fingerprint reader is also inserted into the screen.
Power, fast in-house charging, and a lens to see the smallest of things
At the heart of this new OPPO is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which in addition to being the most powerful of the manufacturer so far provides the necessary modem to support 5G connectivity. Like the X2 Pro, the RAM is 12GB (DDR5), with a single variant with 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage (no microSD).
It does not have a 3.5-millimeter minijack but does have a dual speaker for stereo audio, with Dolby Atmos. It has NFC and WiFi 6, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and IP68 dust and water resistance certification.
As for the battery, we see that the capacity is upped a bit from previous with a 4,500mAh battery, which as you’d expect arrives with 65-watt SuperVOOC 2.0 charging. Also, it has AirVOOC Wireless 30 watts (wireless charging), with which they promise 100% charge in 30 minutes.
Speaking of the cameras, we see that the commitment to the telephoto lens is maintained (although the optical stabilization remains only in the main lens), but they wanted to differentiate themselves from the rest with a microscopic camera, perhaps as an alternative to the macro hegemony that we see today. It is also noteworthy that the Sony IMX766 sensor is in both the main and wide-angle so that both can give images at 50 megapixels.
- Wide-angle (main): Sony IMX766 sensor with 50 megapixels, f/1.8 aperture value, and optical stabilization.
- Ultra wide-angle: 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor, f/2.2 aperture value, and 110.3° angle of view.
- Telephoto: 13-megapixel sensor, f/2.4 aperture value, 5x hybrid zoom, and up to 20x digital zoom.
- Microscopic camera: 3-megapixel sensor, f/3.0 aperture value, and 60x microlens.
With this, what the brand offers is to shoot photographs with a focusing distance of between 1 and 2 millimeters. It remains to be seen whether this will result in good photos or whether it is useful in practice. But of course, speaking of differentiating themselves with this, they have succeeded, although the 5x optical zoom of the X2 Pro has been lost in the hybrid of the new X3 Pro.
As for the video, it can record up to 4K, supporting HDR and BT-2020. The brand has focused on improving color, dedicating many functions and features to be able to get the most accurate, realistic, and vivid colorimetry, so we will have to see if this is seen in the photographic quality when testing the handset.
