Normal smartphones have lenses and sensors arranged horizontally, so the lens must be thick in order to ensure enough length from front to back. This is the reason why the rear camera part of smartphones protrudes.

On the other hand, a periscope camera has a lens that is placed vertically as shown below and captures light by refracting it. By arranging the lens to match the width of the smartphone body, the focal length can be significantly longer than before.

The Find X7 Ultra, which appeared on January 8, 2024, is a smartphone equipped with two periscope cameras, and the focal length is said to be equivalent to 14 mm to 270 mm.

Find X7 Ultra looks like this. Available in three colors: ocean blue, sepia brown, and tailored black.

Equipped with 4 main cameras. Two of them are periscope cameras, and they all have 50MP pixels. Furthermore, it is equipped with Sony's LYT-900 sensor made for mobile devices, and is said to be able to take still images that reproduce natural details.

In addition, shooting assistance is provided on the software side. According to OPPO, conventional digital processing (computational photography) has resulted in unnatural looking points in photos, such as overexposure and excessive sharpening.

In order to improve this, OPPO introduced the ``HyperTone Image Engine'', which maintains the quality of the original image and is good at naturally reproducing highlights, shadows, and midtones. Photo samples before (left) and after (right) processing were also released.

In addition to JPEG and RAW, the images taken will be able to be saved in RAW MAX with a future software update. The RAW MAX format supports the BT.2020 color space, which expands the color gamut, and is said to maximize the benefits of digital processing with a 13-stop dynamic range and 16-bit color depth.

The SoC installed is 'Snapdragon 8 Gen 3'. Memory is up to 16GB LPDDR5X, storage is up to 512GB UFS 4.0, and battery capacity is 5000mAh.

Find X7 Ultra is sold in China and is priced at 6,999 yuan (approximately 144,000 yen) for the top model. In addition, a low-cost model ' Find X7 ' with a single periscope camera will also be sold. 'The Find X7 Ultra's world's first quad periscope camera will forever change the way people take photos,' said Pete Lau, Senior Vice President.
