In related news provided our first look at the GT 2 Pro. The design is a big departure from the Realme GT and GT Neo2 with a Nexus 6P style camera visor spanning across the top part of the back. There are three visible camera modules housed in the contraption with two 50MP shooters alongside an 8MP snapper. It’s also said that all three modules will offer GR lenses developed by Ricoh which specialize in reducing ghosting and backlight resistance.
Realme GT 2 Pro also has flat metal sides and is expected to utilize Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen1. The phone recently appeared with the flagship chip in an AnTuTu listing where it managed to record over 1 million points. The phone is also rumored to bring a 6.51-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, 125W UltraDart charging and Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12 out the box.
To be honest, the camera design of this new phone looks more like Pixel 6 and OPPO Find X3’s camera design.
It is also the first Pixel phone to feature a triple camera with ultra-wide and tele modules accompanying the primary shooter. At 1/1.31″ the image sensor in the latter is almost twice the size of its equivalent in the Pixel 5 generation and offers a 50 MP resolution that is downsampled to 12.5 MP for the final output image. Landscape photographers and other wide-angle shooters can rely on an ultra-wide module with a 16mm-equivalent field of view, and a 4x tele lens allows you to zoom into your subjects from a distance.
Let’s see how the Google Pixel 6 Pro performed in the DXOMARK Camera test.

Then, let’s check the OPPO Find X3!
This ultra-premium device comes equipped with plenty of cameras, too. There’s a quad-cam on the rear, including a 50 MP standard-wide main camera, a 50 MP ultra-wide, a 13 MP tele-lens module for 5x “hybrid optical zoom” shots, and a 3 MP microscope camera.
For video, the Find X3 Pro shoots 4K footage at both 60/30 fps with video stabilization, boasts a video zoom feature at the 4K 30 fps setting, and you can drop the resolution for super slo-mo effects at 1080p/240 fps or 720p/480 fps.
