OPPO Find X7 Ultra Officially Launches with Quad Main Camera Setup

OPPO’s new flagship smartphone, the Find X7 Ultra, is here. It was unveiled at an event in China. This phone is the first to use Sony’s 1-inch LYT-900 camera sensor. OPPO is touting a ‘Quad Main Camera’ setup on this device.

No word yet on a global launch. The Find X6 series didn’t launch globally, but the Find X5 series did. So, we’re left waiting and wondering.

The Find X7 Ultra’s design wasn’t exactly a secret. It had been leaked several times before the launch. The phone features vegan leather on all variants, but only on part of its backplate. About two-thirds of the back is covered with vegan leather. It’s hard to deny the phone looks striking and easily recognizable because of it.

You’ve got three color options. Dark blue and brown vegan leather variants are combined with a silver frame and backplate. The black model is black all around, including its vegan leather and the rest of the phone. Official color names are Ocean Blue, Sepia Brown, and Tailored Black.

The large camera oreo on the back is in focus once again. It hosts four cameras. This is the first phone with a dual periscope telephoto camera setup. OPPO refers to this camera set as a ‘Quad Main Camera’ setup. It might be the most expensive camera setup in the world.

OPPO wanted to provide excellent cameras all around. They didn’t want to skimp out on any of the cameras, hence the ‘Quad Main Camera’ tagline. The company did something similar with the OPPO Find X6 Pro, but that phone included three cameras on the back.

In addition to a 1-inch Sony LYT-900 camera sensor, there are three other cameras back there. All four cameras include 50-megapixel camera sensors. Two periscope telephoto cameras are used, and an ultrawide unit.

The main 50-megapixel camera uses Sony’s LYT-900 sensor. We’re looking at a customized lens here with an f/1.8 aperture. OIS support is also on board. OPPO promises a 50% reduction in terms of reflections, and this camera has a 23mm optical focal length.

A 50-megapixel ultrawide camera hides Sony’s LYT-600 camera sensor. That is a large 1/1.95” camera sensor, which is combined with a 14mm equivalent focal length. A fast f/2.0 aperture is also in use here, and this camera can shoot macro shots up to 4cm away from the nearest subject.

One of the periscope telephoto cameras is a 50-megapixel unit with 3x optical zoom. That one uses Sony’s IMX890 sensor, and an f/2.6 aperture with Prism OIS. It offers a 65mm focal length. This sensor is roughly three times larger than the equivalent cameras in key competitors, says OPPO.

The other periscope telephoto camera uses the Sony IMX858 sensor. That one offers a 6x zoom, and the included sensor is a 1/2.51” unit. A 135mm equivalent lens is included here, as is Prism OIS. The nearest focus distance of this camera is 35cm.

OPPO also utilizes the HyperTone Image Engine here. This is OPPO’s way to try to make images more natural-looking, while also making them pop. The whole point is to reduce the overprocessed look that computational photography brought to the table. OPPO says that HyperTone Image Engine “safeguards photo integrity, preserving highlights, shadows and mid-tones with a natural look”.

The Hasselblad Master Mode has also been announced for the phone. It is calibrated to match the characteristics of the Hasselblad X2D 100C, by the way. You’ll have plenty of manual camera control with this phone.

As far as the rest of the specs are concerned, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 fuels this handset. A 6.82-inch QHD+ LTPO AMOLED display is included in the package. OPPO quotes a max brightness of 4,500 nits, but you won’t ever come near that, of course. This display does have a DisplayMate+ rating and OPPO’s ProXDR tech is also included.

A 5,000mAh battery sits on the inside of this phone, while the device supports 100W SuperVOOC wired charging. It also supports 50W wireless charging. The phone can be fully charged in less than 30 minutes via wired charging.

The company uses LPDDR5X RAM here, and UFS 4.0 flash storage. The phone comes in 12GB RAM + 256GB storage, 16GB RAM + 256GB storage, and 16GB RAM + 512GB storage options. The pre-sale pricing starts at CNY5,999 ($845) in China.
