We’ve got the brand new Oppo Find X6 Pro in for review. The phone comes in a packed box with a nice case, which mimics the vegan leather back of the phone itself, a 100W charger, a SIM tool, and a USB cable.
We’re lucky enough to have the flagship Brown model with the Hasselblad-themed vegan leather rear. The leather layer meets the specially-treated Gorilla Glass 5 top plate, which means to feel like metal. The big camera island is housed in a notched lens bezel made of aerospace-grade aluminum. There’s even a little orange dot, which is a throwback to the lens align dot on a real Hasselblad camera.
The camera hardware Oppo packed inside the camera module is impressive. The wide camera comes with f/1.8 lens and the 50.3MP 1-inch sensor currently ruling the smartphone world. The ultrawide and telephoto share a 1/1.56-inch sensor – the biggest ever put inside a periscope zoom camera.
That periscope has a 65mm focal length and a very bright for its type f/2.6 lens. Oppo claims this is the most stable periscope camera on a phone and early impressions suggest it may be correct.
Oppo has two Hasselblad-tuned portrait modes – one with the wide camera and another with the telephoto, which we’ll test in earnest in our review.
The Oppo Find X6 Pro has the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip with up to 16GB of RAM. The software is Android 13 under Oppo’s ColorOS 13.1, but sadly it’s a Chinese-exclusive phone that lacks a Google Play store out of the box. We do hope Oppo will reconsider and eventually bring this beast outside of China, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.
The display is a wonderful 6.82-inch 1440p AMOLED with an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and no less than three color settings. The panel is very vivid even in its default Natural color setting, there’s a Pro mode that conforms to the D65 white standard, and a Vivid option that turns things into an explosion of color. The panel is also eye-searingly bright.
There’s a lot of ground to cover in the Find X6 Pro review so do be patient.
