The Oppo Find X2 provides many owners with a better photography experience. And now, Oppo will soon unveil the new Oppo Find X3.
The company says that there’s a secret weapon that would give the upcoming device the best camera. The popular Chinese news source also leaked information about it.
Weibo stated that Oppo is testing out a new smartphone camera sensor. It added that the company partnered with Sony to have the sensor.
Find X3’s new secret weapon
Sony is the one that designed the new IMX789, which is most likely coming in the new Find X3. The new camera sensor could be the successor to the IMX689.
IMX789’s predecessor debuted in the Find X2 Pro from Oppo. It was also integrated into the OnePlus 8 Pro.
These devices can provide great image outputs because of their IMX689 camera sensor. It is a very large sensor that allows more light compared to other camera sensors.
Sony’s long time partnership with Oppo
Sony Exmor and Oppo have a history of collaboration for the past few years. This means that the Sony Exmor is the one likely to develop the new camera sensor.
Oppo’s partner is also the one that designed the IMX766 for Oppo Reno 5 Pro Plus. This camera sensor is a 50MP snapper.
IMX789 and IMX766 were both used in other smartphones from other brands. These include Vivo and OnePlus.
Both manufacturers also tend to share their technologies with each other. Why? Because one parent company owns the two brands.
Although this is the case, Sony’s IMX789 is most likely developed specifically for Find X3. Leaks claim that the new camera sensor works perfectly with Oppo’s upcoming smartphone.
Upcoming device’s specs
Rumors claim that Find X3 will have curved surfaces. These can be seen in the phone’s front and back parts.
You’ll notice that Oppo’s upcoming device is very similar to Find X2. However, there are no leaks saying that the company will add more curvature.
The leaks also revealed that the new device will weigh about 20g less and is 0.6mm thinner than its predecessor.
On the other hand, the camera setup is very interesting. Why? Because the lighting is circling the lens of the macro camera.
This design will allow the camera to catch more light and provide more detailed images. The new feature could beat iPhone’s photography capability.
Oppo also confirmed that it has equipped a circle of lights around the macro camera head ring. This will give more lighting for really close-up objects.
Imagine taking a picture of a very tiny insect. There’s a possibility that you’ll even capture the hexagon plates in its eyeballs.
On the other hand, it is still not clear if Find X3 Pro will be offered in the same leather options. These appearances are previously offered in Find X2 Pro.
But, rumors state that the new smartphone will have a ceramic glaze-like or matte-frosted glass back.
