2021 is quickly shaping up to be the year of the strange and unique camera bumps. Samsung’s Galaxy S21 family is starting the procession with its weird humps that ‘integrate’ into the metal frame, but it looks like other companies are willing to experiment too.
Case in point: Oppo’s Find X3 Pro. You can take a look for yourself and bask in the glory of the weirdness of the way the back material ‘rises’ into the hump, thanks to the newly leaked official-looking renders you can see below.
On the front, the display is obviously curved on the sides, and the front-facing snapper is housed in a left-aligned hole-punch, as was the case for the Find X2 Pro. Unlike that phone, its successor will have adaptive refresh rate, from 10 Hz all the way up to 120 Hz (not just a binary 60/120 switch).
Speaking of the screen, it will be a 6.7″ 1440p OLED panel. On the back, among those four cameras, one is going to be a unique 25x zoom ‘microscope’ macro lens with a light ring around it (it’s the one just under the LED flash), alongside two as-of-yet unannounced 50 MP sensors from Sony (we’re assuming one for the main camera, the other going to the ultrawide). As for what the final shooter is – maybe a 2x/3x zoom cam? It’s weird to see zero periscopes here, especially since the Find X2 Pro had one, and other companies like Samsung and Huawei are doubling down on them.
The Find X3 Pro is said to feature wireless charging, and as you can see we might still get a vegan leather version. The phone is allegedly launching around late March or early April, obviously with the Snapdragon 888 on board.
