Oppo's latest flagship phone, the Find X7 Ultra, is the first smartphone to include two periscope cameras, the company announced today when it launched the device in China. One offers 3x zoom and uses a 1/1.56-inch sensor that Oppo says is “the largest telephoto sensor in any smartphone.” Larger sensors usually take better low-light photos, which can be a problem for some phones' secondary cameras. The second periscope lens offers 6x optical zoom with a 1/2.51-inch sensor.
The zoom lenses make up two of the four 50-megapixel cameras that are integrated into the back of the phone. These also include a main camera that is the first on the market to use a 1-inch Sony Type II sensor (LYT-900), along with an ultra-wide camera (sensor size: 1/1.95 inch). In terms of software, the four sensors are supported by new sensors from Oppo HyperTone Image Engine.
Elsewhere, the Find X7 Ultra carries the typical flagship smartphone specs. It's powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, with a 5,000mAh battery that can fast charge up to 100W wired or 50W wirelessly. Its 6.82-inch display has a 1440p resolution, with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and a peak brightness of 4,500 nits when viewing HDR content.
Unfortunately, the phone seems likely to remain exclusive to the Chinese market, with no release planned in Europe or the US – just like last year's Find X6 Pro. In China, prices start at 5,999 yen (about $845) for the model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, and go up to 6,999 yen (about $990) for the top-end model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
