The link between OPPO and OnePlus is getting closer. We recently witnessed the definitive merger between the research and development departments of the two companies, then OnePlus has even decided to switch to the ColorOS interface for the Chinese market saying goodbye to HydrogenOS. Now important similarities have emerged between the last two top of the range of the Chinese giants belonging to the Ouga group: OPPO Find X3 Pro and OnePlus 9 Pro.
The two flagships resemble in some respects two twins separated at birth and could easily be two different variants of the same smartphone. The devices have in fact two of the main characteristics of their technical data sheet in common: the display and the battery. As for the display, OnePlus 9 Pro and OPPO Find X3 Pro present themselves with it same screen curved at the sides: a billion-color AMOLED LTPO panel with the following characteristics:
- 6,7 inch diagonal
- 120 Hz refresh rate
- HDR10 + certification
- Quad HD + resolution (1440 x 3216 pixels)
- Brightness up to 1300 nit
- In-display fingerprint reader
However, there is a small difference between the two screens: the touch sampling frequency, which on OPPO Find X3 Pro reaches up to 240 Hz and on OnePlus 9 Pro up to 360 Hz. This parameter determines the maximum reactivity of the touch screen and a high frequency resulting in a more reactive touch can bring advantages in gaming.
As anticipated the battery is also the same: it's about a two-cell Li-Po battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh. In both cases we have the same 65W fast charging technology, with the only difference that in the first it is called SuperVOOC 2.0 and in the second Warp Charge 65. The wireless charging technology is different: for OPPO Find X3 Pro it is AirVOOC at 30W, while for OnePlus 9 Pro the power is 50W.
On the display and battery side, there would therefore seem to be some advantages (on paper) for OnePlus 9 Pro, but this is not the case for the other specifications. OPPO Find X3 Pro certainly has a more original design and a more advanced photographic sector, but also a higher price.
