The new Oppo Find X6 lineup has arrived, and the Oppo Find X6 Pro brings some serious camera credentials, along with every other flagship spec we expect. Sadly, we don't know if or when it will be available outside of China, but we've gotten a good Find X6 Pro hands-on review for you to check out.
The Oppo Find X6 line could comprise some of the best phones of 2023, though limited availability will hurt its appeal compared to phones like the OnePlus 11 – let alone the Samsung Galaxy S23 or iPhone 14.
If you can find one, the Oppo Find X6 should be able to compete with the top rivals in terms of specs and performance (if you want proof, check out the Oppo Find X5 Pro, one of our favorite recent phones).
We've already gotten our hands on the Find X6 Pro. but we're still waiting to get hands on with the Find X6. We've also heard no details on whether there will be a Find X6 Lite.
Here's everything we know so far, with details from our hands-on look at the Find X6 Pro, and everything Oppo has told us about the Find X6.
We have the new phone and our Oppo Find X6 Pro hands-on review is live. You can read all about the flagship phone, though our experience was unfortunately limited by the phone's Chinese exclusivity. That's right, there are no plans to sell this cool phone outside of China ... yet.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? The next line of flagship Oppo phones
- When is it out? March 24, 2023
- How much will it cost? CNY¥5,999 - CNY¥6,999, no pricing outside of China
Oppo Find X6: release date and price
Oppo has taken the wraps off the Find X6 and Find X6 Pro, and the phones will be available for sale as of March 24, but only if you live in China. There is no plan to spread the love across the globe, as Oppo has only announced Chinese availability and pricing for its next flagship family, without a hint of wider export.
Even though the Find X6 and FInd X6 Pro models have been announced, we still haven't heard about a less expensive Oppo Find X6 Lite. In the past, this phone launched simultaneously, as the Find X5 Pro and Lite were announced at the same time in the Find X5 line.
In terms of the phones' availability, the news doesn't bode well. Oppo has not announced plans to ship either of these models outside of China. The company sent our US Editor-in-Chief a Find X6 Pro to try, but it lacked Google Play support for now, and the apps were clearly aimed only at a native Chinese audience.
The lack of US availability for the Oppo’s Find X6 family isn’t much of a surprise, mind. Oppo doesn't have any retail partners in the US, and neither does it operate its own US storefront. Oppo owns the OnePlus brand, and the OnePlus 11 might be considered a performance phone from Oppo, though it lacks the larger camera sensor on the Find X6 Pro.
We were still holding out hope for some form of Find X6 family release outside of China. The Oppo Find N2 Flip launched in Europe last month, so it’s disappointing to hear that the Find X6 group won’t follow suit.
There’s no information on what the Oppo Find X6 line might cost, but the phones could have similar prices to their respective predecessor's.
For reference, the Oppo Find X5 starts at £749 / AU$1,399 (around $920), the Find X5 Pro costs £1,049 / AU$1,799 (roughly $1,285), and the Oppo Find X5 Lite costs £399 / AU$799 (around $490).
In any case, the prices above probably won’t be exactly right for the upcoming models, but we doubt the Find X6 line will be much more expensive, as the Find X5 and Find X5 Pro are already on the pricey side for the specs they offer.
Pricing has been announced for the Oppo Find X6 Pro, but only for the Chinese market. In China, the the phone starts at CNY¥5,999 (approximately $870 / £710 / AU$1,305 when converted directly) and tops out at CNY¥6,999 (approximately $1,020 / £830 / AU$1,520).
Oppo Find X6: news and leaks
Now that the Oppo Find X6 Pro has been officially announced and we have one in our testing office, we can confirm the specs that were leaked.
The Oppo Find X6 Pro has a 6.7-inch 2K screen; a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset; 12GB or 16GB of RAM; 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage; Android 13; and a 5,000mAh battery with 100W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
The phone also has a triple-lens rear camera with a 50MP main sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide one and a 50MP telephoto one, along with Hasselblad tuning and a 32MP front camera. The main camera uses a large 1-inch sensor, a rarity on smartphone cameras.
For the standard Oppo Find X6, we get a 6.7-inch screen that is only slightly less sharp. It's powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chipset, a new flagship platform from the affordable chipset designers.
There's 12GB or 16GB of RAM; 256GB or 512GB of storage; Android 13 with ColorOS 13.1 (because China); and a 4,800mAh battery with 80W wired charging. So, a few downgrades from the Pro model, but also some significant wins, like the RAM and storage options.
The Find X6 has a less-advanced triple camera with a 50MP main sensor that is smaller than the big one-inch sensor on the Pro model. There's also that 50MP ultra-wide camera and a 50MP telephoto one, along with Hasselblad tuning and a 32MP front camera. Again, much of the same specs as the Pro, with only a slight downgrade.
