Oppo is not a well-known name in the United States, but in Europe and other territories it is a common sight for buyers of both budget and medium-sized units. The company’s Finn flagship line (equivalent to Galaxy S) will be updated at an event in a couple of weeks, but a new leak already manages to reveal pretty much all the information you could want on these upcoming phones.
The Find X3 series comes in three primary variants, just like last year: Find the X3 Pro flagship, X3 Neo medium and X3 Lite budget options. The flagship’s distinctive design element is a slight slope at the rear that rises to meet the camera module, instead of a sharp shelf or shock, even if it is not present on the cheaper models. Oppo previously announced an advanced color accuracy system for this series.

Other things include 12 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, an on-screen fingerprint reader, wireless charging, 65-watt fast charging and an IP68 rating. The battery is a respectable 4500mAh component, the better to help you with the 5G radio.

Neo shrinks the screen a bit from the Pro, down to 6.5 inches and a 1080p resolution of 90Hz. It also has to settle for a Snapdragon 865 processor – which is still pretty amazing as far as processors go. It uses the same selfie camera, but the rear cameras are a bit mixed up: it replaces one of the 50MP sensors for a 16MP ultra-tablet, and releases the micro-lenses for a more standard 2MP macro camera. It also downgrades resistance to intrusion to IPx4 only. Strangely, it has the same size battery as the larger phone, but loses the wireless charging option.

Slightly shaves the screen further down to 6.44 inches, but hangs on the 90Hz option while choosing the older Gorilla Glass 3 (the others have GG5). The processor is a medium-sized Snapdragon 765G, the same in Pixel 5 and 4a 5G. The rear cameras are mixed around again: 65MP main, 8MP ultrawide and two 2MP sensors for macro and depth, respectively. The X3 little has to settle for IP52 resistance and a 4300mAh battery, but the biggest downside is RAM and storage: down to 8 GB and 128 GB.
All three phones run Oppos ColorOS 11.2, based on Android 11. They will be available for purchase in Asia and Europe shortly after the announcement event, scheduled for March 11. There is no pricing information available for the phones, but last year’s models were launched at around $ 1050, $ 835, $ 520 in local currencies for Pro, Neo and Lite respectively. As with most Oppo devices, there are no indications that they are coming to America.
