Oppo’s new Find X7 Ultra is the first Ultra phone in its premium Find
The Find It is powered by a 5000mAh battery complemented by 100W ultra-fast wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
This phone is really all about its five cameras, and Oppo leaned into that with the phone’s imposing camera bump. Four of the cameras are on the back, of which two are periscope-style telephoto cameras backed by large Sony sensors and enhanced computational photography features. He Galaxy S23 UltraFeaturing Samsung’s most advanced camera module, it has a single telephoto lens, but is capable of an additional 10x zoom.
Oppo says those cameras close the “zoom gap between optical focal lengths like never before on a smartphone,” mainly because they have a 14-135mm equivalent focal length. The remaining two cameras are a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 50-megapixel main camera. Oppo is also taking advantage of its Hypertone Image Engine, which it says rectifies typical problems that can arise from computational photography, such as over-sharpening and overexposure, among others.
Oppo sent me a Find X7 Ultra phone in blue to cover it ahead of today’s official launch. I only managed to spend about forty-five minutes testing the Find X7 Ultra, during which I spent most of that time taking photos. In the limited time I spent with the Find 7 Ultra, I can say that I definitely appreciated the versatility of the camera setup, as well as the continuity of zoom it offers. Although I didn’t try it, I love that you had the ability to set your own master photo style and adjust the camera to shoot in that style. Basically, you can adjust parameters like contrast, sharpness, and saturation and save those settings to profiles, allowing you to customize the image.
I also appreciated the display and sleek design of the Find X7 Pro. The Find X7 Ultra evolves the design language of the Find New to the X series is an alert slider, a hardware switch popularized by OnePlus (a subsidiary of Oppo) on its phones as it makes it easy to switch between ring, silent and vibrate modes.
However, Oppo has reserved the Find X7 Ultra for launch only in its native China. The company says there are no current plans for an international launch. Pricing information was also not available at the time of writing, but I would expect it to be in the price range of the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Find the rear cameras of the X7 Ultra
The Find X7 Ultra is perhaps the only commercially available phone to offer two periscope-style telephoto lenses. The dual-lens setup includes a 65mm portrait focal length with 3x optical zoom and a 135mm close-up focal length with 6x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom. The 50-megapixel main camera uses Sony’s LYT-900, a one-inch sensor that promises to be more power efficient than its predecessor and capture plenty of detail. Meanwhile, the 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera uses the Sony LYT-600 sensor, which Oppo says is ideal for macro photography or capturing wide scenes no matter the time of day.
Paired with the main and ultra-wide-angle cameras, it made for a delightfully versatile setup. For example, I took the phone to an ATP tennis tournament in Hong Kong and it was easy to take photos of the entire stadium and then close-ups of the tennis players on the courts thanks to all that zoom. power (up to 120x).
