Leakster Digital Chat Station has more news of Oppo’s upcoming flagship smartphones – the Reno7 Pro model (PFDM00) will use the Sony IMX766 sensor. This could be the same phone that is being co-developed with Kodak, which will use two such sensors. Though that might be a new Find model instead.
Either way, the IMX766 is highly popular over at Oppo HQ. It is currently used in the Reno6 Pro+ as well as the Snapdragon version of the Reno6 Pro and the Find X3 Pro flagship too. This sensor (or custom versions of it) is also used in phones from OnePlus, Realme, vivo and others.
It is a 1/1.56” sensor with 50 MP resolution and 1.0 µm native pixels (which grow to 2.0 µm with 4-in-1 binning). Also, it supports DOL-HDR an All-Pixel autofocus.
Camera setup of the Oppo Reno6 Pro (Snapdragon 870 version)
According to DCS this sensor will enable a notable improvement in image quality on the the Reno7 model compared to the Reno6 Pro. But note that this refers to the Dimensity 1200 version of the 6 Pro, which is sold in China and uses a 64 MP OmniVision OV64B, a 1/2.0” sensor with 0.7 µm pixels.
The OV64B is also used in the vanilla Reno6, so the new vanilla model should be in for a camera upgrade as well.
