Oppo’s latest flagship, the Find X7 Ultra, is the first smartphone to include two periscope cameras, the company announced today as it launched the device in China. One offers a 3x zoom and uses a 1/1.56-inch sensor that Oppo says is “the biggest telephoto sensor in any smartphone.” Large sensors typically make for better low-light photographs, which can be an issue for some phones’ secondary cameras. The second periscope lens offers a 6x optical zoom with a 1/2.51-inch sensor.

The zoom lenses make up two of the four 50-megapixel cameras Oppo has built into the rear of the phone. These also include a main camera that’s the first in the market to use Sony’s second-generation 1-inch-type sensor (the LYT-900), alongside an ultrawide camera (sensor size: 1/1.95-inch). On the software side, the four sensors are powered by Oppo’s new HyperTone Image Engine.

Elsewhere the Find X7 Ultra carries typical flagship smartphone specs. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, with a 5,000mAh battery that can be fast-charged at up to 100W wired or 50W wirelessly. Its 6.82-inch screen is 1440p, with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and peak brightness of up to 4500 nits when viewing HDR content.

Unfortunately, the phone looks likely to remain exclusive to the Chinese market, with no release planned for Europe or the US — just like last year’s Find X6 Pro. In China, prices start at ¥5,999 (around $845) for a model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage, going up to ¥6,999 (around $990) for the top-end model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
