What you need to know

  • A handful of live images of the Oppo Find X6 have appeared online.
  • The unofficial pictures reveal a massive camera bump on the back.
  • The leaked photos also give us a good look at the phone's punch-hole cutout for its selfie camera and its curved screen.

Oppo's next-generation flagship phone series may have a huge difference from its predecessor in one key design element, if a slew of live images that leaked online are to be believed.

Unofficial real-world photos of a supposed Oppo Find X6 prototype have been leaked and shared on Weibo, giving us our best look yet at the upcoming device (via GSMArena). The pictures reveal a massive rear camera island that occupies a large portion of the back panel.

The images give us some Xiaomi 12S Ultra vibes owing to the humongous camera bump on the back, although Xiaomi's 2022 flagship phone had a circular camera shape. In the case of the Find X6, the camera module extends near the middle of the phone's vertical plane. As a result, the device tilts at a significant angle when laid down on a flat surface.

It also looks like the upcoming model's front camera will be housed in a center-aligned hole-punch cutout. In contrast, the Oppo Find X5's selfie snapper was placed in a left-aligned punch-hole cutout.

Oppo could boast Hasselblad color fine-tuning for the Find X6's shooters, as per previous rumors. The company is likely to pair that with its proprietary MariSilicon X NPU for image processing, which will potentially give some of the best Android camera phones a run for their money.

There are no official details yet about the phone's camera specs, but seeing as its camera module is likely to take up a lot of space, Oppo may be cooking up a huge upgrade for the rear shooter. Earlier rumors suggested that the Find X6 (and its Pro sibling) would feature a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor along with 50MP ultrawide and 50MP telephoto cameras. If accurate, this will mark a significant upgrade from the previous model, which only had a 13MP telephoto camera.

It's not clear yet when Oppo will launch the Find X6 series, but MySmartPrice speculates that a February or March debut is in the cards.
