China’s Tianwen-1 spacecraft has successfully landed on Mars, and as a tribute to the mission, Chinese phone maker Oppo announced a special edition Find X3 Pro, dubbed Find X3 Pro Mars Exploration Edition.
The Oppo Find X3 Pro Mars Exploration Edition (machine translated from Chinese) comes in a new gray paint job, making it the fifth color option for the flagship joining the already available Blue, White, Gloss Black, and Cosmic Mocha colorways.
Oppo says the gray shade is inspired by outer space, and the phone’s rear panel is made of high-fog AG Glass with metallic luster to achieve the texture of the materials from outer space.
The back cover of the Exploration Edition also has Mars 2021 and Utopia Planitia inscribed, with the latter being the name of the Tianwen-1’s landing site on the Red Planet.
Additionally, the Find X3 Pro Mars Exploration Edition comes with three Mars color filters that help you make the photos taken on Earth get a Mars-like look.
Moreover, the special edition smartphone features a custom Mars theme, while dynamic wallpapers show you the sunrise and sunset along with the changes in light and shadow on the Red Planet at four different times – morning, noon, evening, and night.
The Oppo Find X3 Pro Mars Exploration Edition comes in a special retail packaging, and unlike the regular variant, this one’s offered in a single memory configuration – 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.
