MacRumors is focused on the Apple site, but sometimes we like to share remarkable new features that Apple’s competitors add to their devices, such as a look at what Apple may explore in the future, and just to keep track of what other companies are doing. Oppo recently released a smartphone with a microscope lens, and we decided it would be fun to check it out and see how it works in our latest YouTube video.
The Oppo Find X3 Pro is not a phone sold in the US and is quite expensive at 1149 euros (~ 1350 dollars), but it includes a 3-megapixel “Microlens”
Findle X3 Pro’s Microlens offers 60x magnification and ring light, so you can see things up close, as you can see in the video. It’s an incredibly niche feature, but it definitely makes Find X3 Pro stand out and fun to play.
You can see the weaving of the mesh headband AirPods Max, a lock of hair, the veins of a plant leaf and more. You will need a stable hand or tripod to focus most of the elements, which is a drawback.
In addition to the Microlens camera, Oppo’s Find X3 Pro is a leading first-level smartphone that easily competes with other Android smartphones on the market. It also features a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 13-megapixel telephoto camera, so it still offers what most competitors have, with just a bonus microscope lens.
You can get high-magnification microscopes that can wirelessly connect to a smartphone for less than $ 50, so it’s a feature you can replicate quite affordable, but it’s certainly fun to have it at your fingertips. your increasing needs.
Since this smartphone is not currently sold in the United States, it must be imported, and even with high features and microlens, it is probably not worth paying the price of $ 1,300, as well as shipping fees to get it. The built-in microscope is probably not something we will see in the iPhone in the near future, but it is an interesting concept.
