Ahead of any formal announcement by the Chinese smartphone brand, a reliable tipster has suggested some details about the mysterious Oppo flagship. It is said to come with a circular-shaped camera island on the back. The rear cameras will be optimised at the software level in partnership with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad. The rumoured device could belong to the upcoming Oppo Find X6 series, however, the moniker is not yet known.
Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo suggested that a flagship Oppo smartphone is in the works. The rumoured handset is said to feature a circular shaper rear camera module comprising a primary sensor, a periscope portrait centre-focus lens, and a movie lens. The camera setup could have Hasselblad branding. In the comment session of the Weibo post, he claimed that the device could belong to the Find X6 series, but the name of the phone is not known yet.
