Then we have the 3-megapixel microlens. Opo claims these lenses are capable of 60x magnification. The Verge compares the lenses more to a microscope than a macro lens.

Video capture

Early impressions are good. The Find X3 Pro captures 4K 10-bit video in log and HDR and offers BT.2020 color gamut support. The 3MP f/3 microlens shoots Full HD video. The telephoto camera shoots 10-bit color. The front-facing camera is a 32-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 lens. This camera likely creates higher-quality videos and photos thanks to the high pixel count.

Additionally, the Find X3 Pro integrates Oppo’s Overlap High Dynamic Range (DOL HDR). According to the company, this technology continuously generates frames in a line-by-line partner, reducing the chance for ghosting and light streaking. Also, the technology brings a wider dynamic range and HDR support to the Find X3 Pro. RAW capture also got an upgrade. Now called RAW+, the feature captures HDR in RAW format, capturing more information than conventional RAW.

Autofocus

Oppo claims the Find X3 Pro’s autofocus utilizes 100% of its wide and ultra-wide camera’s pixels to focus. They’re also capable of 350-degree focus in all directions, allowing you to focus in a variety of situations and lighting conditions.

“Featuring the most advanced mobile focus technology, the dark light focus success rate rises from only 3% to 97%,” Oppo says. “In English? Crisp shots across all lighting conditions.”

Display

The Find X3 Pro is impressive as well. The scene is capable of displaying photos and videos in more than a billion colors. The average smartphone display shows just 16.7 million colors. Additionally, the phone’s display is a 10-bit panel, with a peak brightness of 1,300 nits and a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. This contributes to the phone’s ability to display colors in vivid detail.
