The Oppo Find X3 range has now been confirmed, with three 5G phones making up the line-up and the Pro confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 888.
Oppo’s global Find X3 series launch saw the Find X3 Pro joined by cheaper Neo and Lite models. Weirdly enough, it wasn’t joined by the regular Find X3, which so far seems to be a China-exclusive model.
We’ve rounded up the specs, price and release date for all of these of phones. Keep on reading for more – you can also check out the best deals available right now on the previous Find X generation, the
Find X2 range.
The Find X3 Pro, Find X3 Neo and Find X3 Lite are available in the UK and much of the rest of the world now, though don’t expect to see any of them in the US.
There’s currently no UK or European release planned for the standard Find X3.
How much is the Oppo Find X3?
The confirmed prices for the Find X3 range are as follows:
Find X3 Pro: £1,099/€1,149
Find X3 Neo: £699/€799
Find X3 Lite: £379/€449
The pricing for Pro version is the same as the last generation. The Lite is slightly cheaper, whilst the Neo has had a step-up of around £100.
There’s no UK or Euro pricing for the vanilla Find X3 model, though if you’re interested it starts from CNY 4,499 (around £500). The price conversion is misleading though, as in reality this is priced between the Neo and Pro models.
The design of the Find X3 Pro is unusual, to say the least, with a fairly standard body for the most part until we get to the camera module, where the body of the phone slopes up to meet the four lenses, themselves arranged in a layout clearly inspired by Apple’s recent iPhones.
There are two finishes available in the UK: black and blue. Other markets are also getting white glass and orange leather models, though neither are coming to the UK.
Meanwhile the Lite and Neo have more understated looks, with the design not drastically different to what we saw in the Find X2 range. The Lite comes in black, silver and blue, whilst the Neo is only available in black and silver.
What are the Oppo Find X3 specs?
Specs vary significantly between the four Find X3 models, so let’s break them down one by one.
Find X3 Pro
The Find X3 Pro sports the marketing tagline “Awaken Color” to draw attention to the Full Path Colour Management System that Oppo first announced at its Inno Day 2020 event (which also saw the reveal of the
Oppo X 2021 rollable phone).
This system means that the Find X3 Pro offers a true 10-bit colour display, and features 10-bit colour depth through the full DCI-P3 gamut at every stage: from capture via the phone’s camera, to encoding, storage, decoding, and finally on the screen.
As well as offering 10-bit colour depth, the X3 Pro features a 6.7in QHD+ AMOLED display with a dynamic refresh rate that can range from 10Hz to 120Hz.
The Find X3 Pro is powered by the
Snapdragon 888 chipset, and backed up by 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
The Pro is also the first device to tote not one, but two of Sony’s 50Mp IMX766 image sensors: one serving as the phone’s primary camera (f/1.8 with OIS), while the other mans an ultrawide lens (f/2.2 with EIS), which should bring greater consistency to the table compared to other multi-sensored smartphone snapper arrangements.
The camera system will also play host to a 13Mp telephoto snapper with f/2.4 aperture, with 5x hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom. Unusually the whole setup is rounded out by an unorthodox 3Mp ‘microlens’ camera at f/3.0, which offers 60x magnification and microscope-like capabilities with the help of an integrated LED ring light. The front-facing selfie camera is 32Mp, at f/2.4.
Meanwhile the phone is capable of shooting video up to 4K at 60fps in 10 bit colour in both LOG and HDR formats, along with manual control over the shutter speed and focus. The footage can be post-produced in HDR workflow whilst also being compatible with SDR devices.
The exterior of the phone comes in at 163.6 x 74 x 8.26 mm, while weight is kept to a manageable (for a device with a 6.7in display, at least) 193g. The IP rating is IP68. On the inside sits a 4500mAh cell (made up of two 2250mAh batteries) that supports 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 wired fast charging and – unlike the Find X2 Pro – also accommodates 30W AirVOOC wireless fast charging.
The Find X3 Pro runs on ColorOS 11.2 atop Android 11 at launch – a software experience that’s already rolling out to some of Oppo’s existing handsets.
If you want to know more about the Find X3 Pro, we discussed and reviewed the phone on an episode of our podcast
Fast Charge, which you can watch right here:
What about the Find X3 Neo?
The Find X3 Neo is essentially a re-branded Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ for markets where the original never launched. Itboasts a 6.55in OLED curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a screen ration of 92.1% and a resolution of 2400 x 1080. The entire phone measures 159.9 x 72.5 x 7.99 mm, and has a weight of 184g.
Under the hood the Find X3 Neo boasts a Snapdragon 865 processer paired with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, while the battery is 4500mAh with 65W charging. There are no wireless charging capabilities on the more affordable Find X3 phones. Both the Neo and Lite will run on ColorOS 11.1, based on Android 11.
The rear quad-camera is led by a 50Mp, f/1.8 main shooter (with the same Sony IMX766 Sensor), along with a 16Mp ultrawide, 13Mp telephoto, and 2Mp macro. The same 32Mp selfie camera as the Pro is found on the front.
What about the Find X3 Lite?
Meanwhile the Find X3 Lite is in fact a re-branded
Oppo Reno 5. It features a 6.4in 90Hz OLED display, powered by a Snapdragon 765G with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. This is paired with a 4300mAh battery and 65W charging. In terms of cameras, the 32Mp punch-hole selfie camera is complimented by a 64Mp main camera, 8Mp ultrawide, and 2Mp macro and depth sensors on the rear.
What about the Find X3?
The vanilla Find X3 has so far only been announced for China, and it seems like that it won’t be launched internationally.
We’re not missing too much though – the phone is almost exactly the same as the Find X3 Pro, and the only notable changes are the chipset, RAM, and storage.
Instead of the Snapdragon 888 it uses the
Snapdragon 870, and RAM is down to 8GB rather than 12. There’s also a lower 128GB storage option available, in addition to 256GB.
Otherwise, the design, display, camera setup and charging all remain identical to the Pro model.
