Oppo has joined the likes of Xiaomi and sister-company Vivo by together with an enormous 1-inch-type digicam sensor in its newest smartphone, the Discover X6 Professional, which additionally doesn’t skimp on the telephoto and ultrawide digicam specs. It’s launching in China at present alongside the common Discover X6.
In China, the Discover X6 Professional begins at 5999 yuan (round $872) for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, rising to 6999 yuan (round $1017) for 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage. In the meantime the non-Professional Discover X6 begins at 4499 yuan (round $654) for 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. A spokesperson for the corporate was unwilling to substantiate whether or not the X6 telephones will see a broader worldwide launch sooner or later.
The Discover X6 Professional’s major digicam is the star of the present, and makes use of Sony’s 50-megapixel 1-inch-type IMX989 sensor. However Oppo needs you to know that it hasn’t forgotten in regards to the secondary telephoto and ultrawide cameras on the telephone. Oppo claims that the 50-megapixel 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 sensors used for its ultrawide and periscope cameras are “bigger than any wide-angle digicam so far” and “the biggest sensor of any smartphone telephoto digicam in the marketplace,” respectively. That sensor is as huge as what Samsung makes use of for the primary digicam on its latest Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus telephones, for reference.

Clearly, sensor dimension is much from the be-all-and-end-all in terms of picture high quality, particularly when most smartphones rely so closely on software program of their pictures (actually, right here’s a wonderful piece from my colleague Allison that examines the strengths and limitations of huge digicam sensors). So Oppo additionally has some software program options up its sleeve like a Hasselblad collaboration, which has resulted in a portrait mode on the Discover X6 Professional that’s designed to emulate the “colours and depth of area” of the Swedish digicam producer’s XCD30 and XCD80 lenses.
Rounding out the digicam specs, the Discover X6 Professional’s ultrawide digicam has a 110-degree area of view, f/2.2 aperture, and may deal with macro-esque pictures with a minimal focus distance of 4cm. In the meantime the Periscope telephoto digicam presents 3x optical zoom and a 6x hybrid zoom.
Away from the cameras, that are contained inside an enormous round digicam bump on the rear of the telephone, the Discover X6 Professional presents a suitably flagship set of specs. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s newest flagship processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and has a 5,000mAh battery that may be quick charged at 100W with a cable and 50W wirelessly.
It additionally has a 6.82-inch 120Hz OLED show with a peak brightness of 2500 nits (Oppo says that is its “brightest ever smartphone display screen”) and a hole-punch cutout for its 32-megapixel selfie digicam. It’s received an IP68 score for mud and water resistance, and comes with a alternative of 12GB or 16GB of RAM, and 256GB or 512GB of storage.
Right now’s launch is only for the Chinese language market, and in the meanwhile Oppo isn’t saying a world launch for both the Discover X6 Professional nor the step down Discover X6. That’s a departure from the Oppo Discover X5 Professional, which was bought in European in addition to Asia.
