Before making its debut in China, the Oppo Find X5 Pro was released worldwide. There are significant upgrades over the previous iteration, the Find X3 Pro, including an improved build, battery technology, and camera technology.
Let’s have a look at the features of Oppo’s latest flagship phone.
Design and Display
On the front, the Chinese phone has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 2K resolution. The power efficiency is thanks to LTPO technology, which allows the refresh rate to be reduced to 1Hz as needed. The display’s touch sampling rate can exceed 1000Hz, which makes it faster than comparable gaming phones on the market.
It also ensures remarkable colour integrity by covering the whole DCI P3 colour range. The highest brightness is 1300 nits, with 8,192 brightness levels. Gorilla Glass Victus is used on the front panel, while ceramic is used on the back panel. IP68 water and dust resistance has also been provided by Oppo. The phone’s rear plate is made of ceramic, which adds weight (218g) but also enhances heat conductivity.
Internals and Storage
Despite being a strong chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is prone to overheating. The ceramic back panel, in addition to the large cooling chamber, should help here. The main processor is paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, however there is no microSD card slot, which is usual on today’s flagships.
ColorOS 12.1 increases the aesthetics, privacy, and security of Android 12.1.
The main camera arrangement consists of two 50MP sensors (wide and ultrawide) and a 13MP telephoto unit. As with the previous model, the 13MP coom camera includes a 5x hybrid zoom and 2x optical magnification.
The two 50MP cameras feature the Sony IMX766 sensor (1/1.56″, 1.0 m), which has improved processing algorithms and support hardware. The MariSilicon X chip, a 6nm NPU with a lot more AI prowess, is to thank for a lot of the improvements. Improved AI noise reduction and 4K Ultra Night Video, which offers less noise and richer colours than ordinary night mode video, are now possible.
On all cameras, both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) are available, providing for better image stabilisation.
The 32MP selfie camera is powered by a Sony IMX709 sensor, which allows it to collect 60% more light than previously for enhanced image quality. It has a field of vision of up to 90 degrees and is a wide-angle lens.
Battery and Pricing
The 5,000 mAh capacity is a little improvement over last year’s (4,500 mAh), but it’s the new Battery Health Engine that makes the difference. When compared to a standard battery, it has doubled the cell’s lifespan. Fast charging has been improved to 80W wired and 50W wireless.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro will be available in Ceramic White and Glaze Black colour variants in Europe on March 14 for a starting price of €1,300.
