Just a few more days before 2024 starts we can now also see the first official render images and teaser videos of Oppo’s high-end camera flagship, which is set to set itself apart from the competition with Hasselblad tuning, dual periscope telefotos and a new 1-inch sensor. Oppo has now also commented the official launch date and the configurations available in China.
The last few days before the end of the year should be a quiet time, but it’s peak season for new smartphone flagships in China. After some manufacturers such as Xiaomi and Nubia have already launched their Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 phones and the first Dimensity 9300 alternatives like the Vivo X100 Pro it is now becoming increasingly busy in the Android flagship space. The latest candidate to launch a new high-end smartphone in the near future is Oppo.
The latest leaks have already indicated that the BBK brand will go by the name “Ultra” in 2024 so the successor to the Oppo Find X6 Pro will therefore not be called Find X7 Pro but Oppo Find X7 Ultra instead. This is now officially confirmed by the Oppo store in China which recently launched its first product page for the new Hasselblad flagship. And it provides us with the first official look at the four color options of the Find X7 series in high-resolution renders:
Launch date of the Oppo Find X7 Ultra and configurations
On the store website and Oppo’s Weibo profile you can also find the configurations of the Oppo Find X7 Ultra and the date for the Chinese launch event. The latter will take place on January 8, 2024 and will bring us the Oppo Find X7 Ultra in at least four configurations with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, 16 GB RAM and 512 GB storage and 16 GB RAM with 1 TB storage. Initial observers from social media are particularly impressed by the new dual-tone design of the two fake leather models, where the top around the camera ring is still made of glass.
Machine translated, the four color variants are called “Vast Sea and Sky”, “Desert Silver Moon”, Smokey Purple” and “Starry Sky Black”. In addition to the Find X7 Ultra, there will also be a regular Find X7. A 1-inch sensor and the first dual-periscope telephoto setup of any phone in the top model have now also been officially confirmed in teasers. It is not yet clear whether the Find X7 Ultra will launch outside China next year, as this was unfortunately not the case with its predecessor.
First official teaser video highlights alert slider
Oppo has also released a first teaser video for the Find X7 series (see below), which also prominently highlights the alert slider known from OnePlus phones.
