Oppo's latest 5G handsets, the Find X3 Pro, Find X3 Neo and Find X3 Lite are launching in the UK on 14 April 2021, and you can pre-order the phones right now. The standard Find X3 won't be coming to the UK, however.
What can you expect from the handsets that are launching?
The X3 Pro offers a 6.7in QHD+ AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz, all powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip – which you'll also find in the new Xiaomi Mi 11 and OnePlus 9 phones.
More significantly, the phone will support a true 10-bit colour depth from end-to-end: from capture, storage, and display. This means you'll get the full wealth of colours in the DCI-P3 gamut. The DCI-P3 (or "Digital Cinema Intiative - Protocol 3" which was initially developed for films) dramatically expands the colour space relative to the sRGB gamut, which relies on an 8-bit depth.

As for cameras, the X3 Pro packs a 50Mp main camera, 50Mp ultra-wide, 13Mp telephoto with 5x hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom, and a 3Mp 'microlens'. It also has a 4500mAh battery with 65W wired fast charging and 20W wireless fast charging. Here's everything there is to know about the Find X3 range.
The Find X3 Neo offers a 6.55in OLED curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate with a Snapdragon 865, which is also in the Find X2 Pro and the popular flagships from last year, like the Samsung Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8/8T. It features a 50Mp main camera, 16Mp ultrawide, 13Mp telephoto and 2Mp macro sensors, along with a 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging – no wireless charging here though. See our full review of the Find X3 Neo.
The Find X3 Lite, the smallest of the trio, features a 6.4in 90Hz OLED display with a 4300mAh battery with 65W fast charging. The main camera boasts a 64Mp sensor, along with 8Mp ultrawide and 2Mp macro and depth sensors.

How much do the Oppo Find X3 phones cost?
Each handset is available in one storage and RAM configuration:
- Find X3 Pro with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage - £1,099/€1,149
- Find X3 Neo with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage - £699/€799
- Find X3 Lite with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage - £379/€449
The X3 Pro pricing makes it more expensive than the equivalent OnePlus 9 Pro with 12GB RAM/256GB, though both share the Snapdragon 888 chip. See our review of the 9 Pro.
Where to pre-order the Find X3 phones SIM-free - Best deals
You can pre-order the Find X3 Pro, Neo and Lite SIM-free directly from Oppo or from Amazon, Currys PC World, Carphone Warehouse, or Very, though availability varies by retailers (at time of writing). If you pre-order by 13 April you can also claim additional Oppo gear (details below). Just be sure to claim between 14 April and 27 April.
GiffGaff has also announced that it will carry the Find X3 range from 14 April though we can't see any plans just yet. It will allow customers to finance the handsets for £25 upfront while paying off the rest over a 24-month period. GiffGaff will charge interest, which means you'll ultimately pay more for the device than they cost. The monthly costs will be £52 for the X3 Pro, £32 for the X3 Neo and £18 for the X3 Lite.
