It’s a real blow to Oppo fans who have been impatiently waiting for a new flagship in 2023, as a leaker announces that the Find X6 Pro, the company’s next smartphone, won’t be released here.
We’ve been hearing about Oppo’s next high-end devices, the Find X6 and X6 Pro, for several months now. While Samsung, OnePlus, Honor and Xiaomi have already launched their smartphones at the beginning of this year, all eyes were probably on Oppo announces the new generation on March 21if we are to believe the latest rumours.
However, just before the presentation, the Ice Universe leaker just announced bad news on his Twitter account: le Find X6 Pro wouldn’t launch outside of China anyway. However, Oppo had never before decided not to market its most high-end smartphone in France, apart from foldable devices.
No Find X6 Pro in Europe, really?
The technical sheet of the Oppo Find X6 Pro started to make us dream. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, but Oppo will mainly improve all other aspects of the device. Like the OnePlus 11, for example, we expected one 100W fast charging.
At the screen level, we know that the smartphone will feature an AMOLED E6 QHD + panel (3168 x 1440 pixels) LTPO 4.0 120 Hz with a height between 6.8 and 6.9 inches. The latter will especially have the particularity of being the smartest ever offered on a smartphone since it will reach about 2400 nits peak. For comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro officially hits 2000 nits (but can go a bit higher in some HDR situations), the Xiaomi 13 Pro promises 1900 nits and the Galaxy S23 Ultra “only” 1750 nits.
It is mainly in photos that we expected the Find X6 Pro’s turn, as Oppo is preparing a major upgrade together with its partner Hasselbald. On the back we find 3 huge cameras, including the 50MP 1-inch IMX989 sensor, a 50 MP (1/1.56 inch) IMX890 ultra wide angle sensor and a 50 MP IMX890 periscope with 3x optical zoom. With such a technical sheet and a Xiaomi 13 Ultra probably positioned with us for 1499 euros, we imagine that Oppo would have a hard time selling its Find X6 Pro for a similar price if it arrived with us.
Contacted by us, Oppo announces that no launch is currently planned in France, but does not refute the information. For now, the tech giant wants to focus on its flip smartphone, the Find N2 Flip. So we’ll probably know more after the Find X6 Pro launches in China at the end of this month. It also remains to be seen what will become of the classic Find X6.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra is sold worldwide, but OPPO Find X6 Pro is not.
