Rumor: Oppo Find X6 Pro will use SD 8 Gen 2, vanilla Find X6 8+ Gen 1
Oppo unveiled the Find X5 series in February, so the X6 series can be expected around the same time next year. Early reports of what the phones will look like are already circulating on Weibo with predictions of two generations of Snapdragon 8-series chips being used.
The flagship Oppo Find X6 Pro is expected to receive the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, of course. It will likely have a 2K display (i.e. QHD+) and a camera with a 1″ sensor. According to Digital chat stationOppo, vivo and Xiaomi are all working on phones with 1″ cameras for next year (Xiaomi has already launched the 12S Ultra this year).
As for the vanilla Oppo Find X6, it should use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, according to Digital Agent 007. Oppo is rumored to be working on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 version of the Find X5 (the original phone uses 888), but the fast approaching Find X6 could render it obsolete rather quickly. Either way, it’s said to have a 1.5K display, a new emerging term for a horizontal resolution of 1,220 pixels.
The Find X5 Pro is Oppo’s only phone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (so far), there are no 8+ Gen 1 phones
The Find X5 Pro also has a version with the Dimensity 9000 chipset. MediaTek almost certainly has a sequel chip in the works, so it’s possible Oppo will use it for one of the Find X6 series as well.
Whatever chips the X6 flagships arrive with, they will most likely also feature custom MariSilicon for image processing as a standout feature for its Hasselblad camera. However, we haven’t heard much about the issue yet.
