Oppo Has Revealed a Leather-clad Find X3 Pro Variant, Believed to be a Tribute to Kodak
We have already seen Vivo partner with Zeiss, OnePlus partner with Hasselblad, and recently there have been rumors that Oppo is partnering with Kodak to develop smartphones. Now, it looks like Oppo has revealed the device, and it is not entirely a new product.
Oppo confirmed the product launched in China on September 16 on Weibo, but it also released pictures of the special edition Find X3 Pro. This new variant (called the photographer's version according to the machine translation) uses a leather protective case on the back about two-thirds, while the top third is still the glass design common on the standard Find X3 Pro. Take a look at the picture below.
One of the pictures also confirmed that the phone still maintains the IP68 rating, while the other picture points to the leather Find X3 Pro special edition packaging. The package appears to include a case, lanyard, charger and earphones.
In any case, the Weibo Twitter digital chat station claimed that the device should be a tribute to the Kodak camera design, but in other respects the same as the standard Find X3 Pro. This means you will get a 50MP main camera, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 3MP microscope lens, and a 13MP 2X telephoto camera. This is a supplement to the Snapdragon flagship chip, 4,500mAh battery, 65W wired charging and 30W wireless charging.
There is no news about the wider availability and pricing of this device, but we hope this is just a sign of Oppo and Kodak (if the camera company is indeed involved).
