OPPO recently launched the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ 5G flagship phone. Some of its major highlights include the Snapdragon 888 chipset, electrochromic rear, and the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 lens built in partnership with Sony.
A leak revealed states that OPPO and Sony are also working on another custom chip named Sony IMX789.
OPPO is expected to launch the Find X3 in the series Q1 this year. Find X3 may not feature the Sony IMX789.
It is unclear as of now which upcoming OPPO smartphone will be arriving with the new IMX789 lens. It remains to be seen whether it arrives on the Reno6 series which may launch by mid-2021.
The recently introduced Sony IMX766 promises a top-notch photography experience in low-light conditions as its sensor size is 1/1.56-inch and it offers a unit pixel area of 1.0μm. As compared to the 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 lens, the IMX766 can intake 63.8 percent more light. The IMX789 is likely to offer a superior experience than the IMX766 when it comes to low-light photography.
The forthcoming Find X3 Pro will have a 120Hz adaptive refresh display with curved edges. The 6.7-inch display will offer 1440 x 3216 pixels resolution and it will be capable to display images in 10-bit colors.
The rear-facing camera setup of the phone may feature the Sony IMX766 50-megapixel lens as the primary shooter. Another Sony IMX766 lens will be used for capturing ultrawide shots, a 14-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 3-megapixel macro lens with 25x zoom support. The Snapdragon 888 powered phone will come with an improved version of the company’s 65W fast charging technology.
