In 2022, the Oppo Find X5 Pro and Oppo Find X5 convinced us during our respective tests. Both models offered very good performance and we can only look forward to discovering their successors and the new features they will launch to improve the formula. Although the new chip is expected to improve the performance and autonomy of the Oppo Find X6 Pro and Find X6 smartphones, we also expect ambitious specifications regarding the display or camera.

When is the Oppo Find X6 Pro coming out?

Oppo has yet to announce a release date for its new flagship, but it should respect the schedule it has imposed on itself in recent years for this new generation. The Oppo Find X6 Pro and Find X6 should therefore be unveiled to the public and press in late February or early March, with pre-orders opening and effective availability around two weeks later. End of March 2023.

How much does the Oppo Find X6 Pro cost?

Here again, the official announcement from the manufacturer will completely remove all doubts regarding the prices applied for Oppo Find X6 Pro and Oppo Find X6. But a quick look back should give us a good indication of expected prices. Last year, Oppo significantly increased the price of the Pro model, the Find X5 Pro was launched in its only configuration with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for 1,299 euros, against 1,149 euros for the previous Find X3 Pro. year (Find X4 Pro never saw the light of day, failing number 4 in China). After such a growth, Oppo should not pull the strings again this year and pass the Find X6 Pro €1,299, in its basic version anyway. The Find X6 should also be priced similarly to the Find X5, or €999 for 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

What is the design of Oppo Find X6 Pro?

For smartphones in its premium range, Oppo always works carefully on design, which systematically ranks in the Find X’s success column. The first renders of Oppo Find X6 Pro and Find X6 show that the manufacturer does not intend to do this. break your good habits this year and offer us products with high quality aesthetics and design.

The Find X5 series was distinguished by the integration of a trapezoidal picture block on the back of the mobile phones, which makes room for new designs in the Find X6. The standard Oppo Find X6 is based on a more classic, impressive and rectangular photo unit, as we have seen in many high-end smartphone models recently. The kit includes three sensors of the device, as well as an LED Flash. Oppo Find X6 Pro is more original, the large circular photo block placed in the middle of the back panel reminds of the design of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

For the rest, we have to keep the IP68 water and dust resistance certification, as well as the optical fingerprint reader under the screen. The Oppo Find X6 Pro is expected to offer a ceramic back and an aluminum chassis.

What is the screen size for Oppo Find X6 Pro?

Fans of large screen space can rejoice, the Oppo Find X6 Pro screen will offer a diagonal between 6.8 and 6.9 inches, up from the already generous 6.7 inches offered by its predecessor. Few smartphones have such huge plates that separate from each other.

The screen is based on AMOLED LTPO 2.0 technology, a Variable refresh rate up to 120Hz. It automatically adapts to the content displayed on the screen and can modulate between 1 Hz and 120 Hz, which saves power and therefore improves battery life when 120 Hz is not available.

The smartphone also has a QHD+ resolution display (3168 x 1440 pixels), compatibility with the Dolby Vision standard, and Brightness up to 1800 nits. On this last point, it is likely that these are brightness peaks that affect only certain parts of the screen at a time, especially useful for HDR and Dolby Vision technologies.

There is little information about the Oppo Find X6 display. It should be around 6.55 inches smaller than the Oppo Find X5. According to a report by the famous Chinese leaker Digital Chat Station, the display will have to settle for a slightly higher resolution, not Full HD + quality at 1080p. It often talks about 1.5K referring to 1200 or 1220p.

How does the Oppo Find X6 Pro work?

Oppo has already confirmed that it will use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for the Find X6 series, but it’s possible that only the Oppo Find X6 Pro will benefit. Recall that the chip is based on a 4nm etching process from TSMC. Qualcomm promises 35% better CPU performance than the previous generation, while boasting 40% better energy efficiency. The GPU (Adreno 740) will be 25% more powerful, and power consumption will be managed up to 45% better. Thanks to this SoC, the Oppo Find X6 Pro should be both more efficient and energy-saving, resulting in a smoother experience and longer autonomy.

The case of Oppo Find X6 is still undecided. The source believes that the manufacturer should equip it with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, which powers many high-end smartphones released in the second quarter of 2022, to save some money. However, we still shouldn’t rule out the possibility that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will eventually power the device.

The storage configurations for the Find X6 Pro will be as follows: 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of storage. But we experienced this in previous models, not all versions may be available in Europe.

What is the autonomy of Oppo Find X6 Pro?

Thanks to a more efficient chip, the Oppo Find X6 Pro and Find X6 should offer better controlled power consumption, resulting in better autonomy. On the other hand, don’t expect the battery capacity to increase. This should stick around 5000mAh 4800 mAh for the Pro model and 4800 mAh for the standard model, which is enough for more than a day of use.

Charging is one of the strongest points of Oppo, which manages to do better in this area than the premium market leaders Samsung and Apple. For both devices we can hope a power up to 80 W wired and up to 50 W with induction. The source even mentions that the Pro model is likely to go even further with up to 100W charging. Despite the integration of large batteries, they are charged very quickly thanks to the brand’s technology. The app should also feature up to 10W reverse wireless charging to restore juice to compatible devices and accessories.

Is the Oppo Find X6 Pro good at photos?

The Oppo Find X5 Pro was already very good at photography, the Find X6 Pro takes the brand a step further. Unlike many new high-end Android smartphones that include four modules, Oppo sticks to a three-photosensor configuration for the optics of its flagship. All three lenses have a Definition of 50 MPthis allows you to either capture highly detailed shots (for enlarging, printing, or editing) or to capture brighter photos using the pixel stacking technique, which combines four pixels into a larger pixel to capture more light. .

The main photosensor is the 1-inch Sony IMX989, which we’ve already seen in action on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra and which should be used in a different form by Oppo’s rival on the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. For the Find X6 Pro, Oppo uses a version with seven plastic lenses (7P) with f/1.8 aperture and OIS image stabilization. The ultra-wide-angle sensor is a 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 aperture at f/2.2, and everything is rounded off with an f/2.6 telephoto lens that allows up to 3x optical zoom. Finally, the front camera is a 32 MP IMX709.

The Oppo Find X6 compromises. Often within a range, the biggest difference between the models on offer is in terms of photography. Again, we are entitled to three modules of 50 MP each, but these are smaller than the Find X6 Pro modules (so they can capture less light) and have lighter specifications. The main sensor is Sony IMX890, the ultra-wide angle is Samsung JN1 and the periscope lens is Sony IMX890.

It has renewed its partnership with Oppo Hasselblad for this generation. The optical specialist has ensured that the Find X6 Pro and Find X6 stand up well in terms of photography, providing color calibration software technology to obtain shots with accurate and natural colorimetry. One of the manufacturer’s features is the inclusion of a chip dedicated to artificial intelligence for photo processing, which greatly contributes to Find X’s performance in this regard. To accomplish this mission, Oppo Find X6 Pro and Find X6 are equipped with the second-generation MariSilicon X chip. An image processor can also make this possible movie in 4K HDR with night mode enabled.

What Android version on Oppo Find X6 Pro?

Oppo Find X6 Pro is released under Color OS 13, the manufacturer’s internal interface based on Android 13. This version brings a lot of optimizations, improvements and new features to Oppo’s stack. The home screen has a new look, with colors closer to the native Android experience and a floating bar designed to launch two apps at the same time. Icons for several apps have also been redesigned, and interactive widgets will fit more comfortably between apps, taking up space similar to what expanded folders now do.

A new animated wallpaper depicting a growing plant is available to users. Be careful, if you exceed your preset screen time, the factory condition will start to deteriorate. Lock screen and Always-On Display are also enriched with new features. For the rest, Color OS 13 focuses on security and privacy, as well as better interoperability between smartphones and Windows PCs.
