Four Pioneering Advancements in Photography

Leveraging the formidable Quad Main Camera setup, the Find X7 Ultra pioneers four significant advancements in smartphone photography:

1. HyperTone Image Engine

The advent of computational photography has revolutionized smartphone photography, yet it has also introduced certain artificial elements into images. These drawbacks include an overly processed HDR appearance, excessive mid-tone and scene exposure, and exaggerated edge detail due to over-sharpening.

OPPO’s HyperTone Image Engine is engineered to maintain the authenticity of photos, safeguarding highlights, shadows, and mid-tones to ensure a natural aesthetic.

With the HyperTone Image Engine, you enjoy the complete advantages of computational photography without compromising the aesthetic integrity of high-quality photos.

2. Seamless Zoom Experience

Traditionally, photographers have regarded the range between 15mm and 200mm as essential for comprehensive zoom capabilities. While some smartphones offer partial coverage within this range, the Find X7 Ultra stands out as the first device capable of capturing high-quality photos throughout the entire spectrum and beyond.

With its Quad Main Camera setup featuring optical ranges at 0.6x, 1x, 3x, and 6x, complemented by AI-enhanced zoom technology, the Find X7 Ultra excels in capturing stunning stills ranging from 14mm to 270mm equivalent focal lengths.

Users can zoom effortlessly, confident that the Find X7 Ultra will deliver clear photos without compromising quality across all focal lengths.

3. Enhanced Portrait Mode with Hasselblad

Introducing the new Hasselblad Portrait Mode, a collaboration with Hasselblad to bring their renowned portrait style to the Find X7 Ultra.

Tailored with professional photographers in mind, the Find X7 Ultra’s Portrait Mode offers four distinct focal lengths: 23mm, 44mm, 65mm, and 135mm. Each focal length is meticulously calibrated to emulate the characteristics of various Hasselblad lenses, resulting in cinematic bokeh with exquisite foreground and background depth. Moreover, it boasts the capability to detect even the smallest details, such as a single strand of hair, ensuring unparalleled accuracy in every shot.

The Find X7 Ultra’s Hasselblad Portrait Mode also prioritizes individual nuances, preserving skin tones and distinctive features while minimizing shutter lag. Additionally, it excels in capturing portraits from distances of up to nine meters, providing users with unmatched versatility and precision.

4. Elevate Your Photography with Hasselblad Master Mode

The collaboration between OPPO and Hasselblad introduces a new era of artistic expression in professional-grade smartphone photography with Master Mode. This feature goes beyond conventional controls, offering advanced settings such as manual ISO, shutter speed, EV, focus, and white balance adjustments. Additionally, Master Mode grants users control over saturation, contrast, sharpness, and vignette when capturing JPEG images.

Master Mode is meticulously calibrated to replicate the characteristics of the revered Hasselblad X2D 100C camera, beloved by discerning professionals for its exceptional quality.

With Master Mode, users can personalize their shots to reflect their unique style, ensuring that every photo taken with the Find X7 Ultra resonates with their artistic vision.

In addition to capturing JPEG and RAW images, Master Mode introduces RAW MAX1 capture capability. This groundbreaking feature enables the capture of 50MP RAW photos, harnessing the full potential of computational photography. RAW MAX photos boast an impressive 13 stops of dynamic range and a 16-bit color depth in the BT2020 color space, delivering unparalleled image quality and versatility.

Sophisticated Style and Stunning Display

Building upon the elegant two-tone design of its Find X6 Series, OPPO has elevated the Find X7 Ultra to new heights of refinement with its strikingly crafted camera system and three timeless color options: Ocean Blue, Sepia Brown, and Tailored Black.

Power up the Find X7 Ultra and immerse yourself in its breathtaking QHD+ display, currently the brightest available, boasting 1-120Hz LTPO technology for seamless visuals and unparalleled quality.

Whatever you’re doing, whether it’s watching, playing, or browsing, the Find X7 Ultra ensures an exceptional viewing experience.

When it comes to viewing photos, OPPO’s ProXDR technology enhances dynamic range, capitalizing on the Find X7 Ultra’s class-leading peak brightness. Moreover, ProXDR is set to be compatible with the Ultra HDR standard recently introduced by Google as part of its Android 14 announcement. This means that in the future, HDR photos shared and received will exhibit a brilliant, expansive tonal range, further enriching the visual experience.

Ultra Performance and Enhanced Privacy
