Oppo unveils its Find X5 lineup starting at €1,000

After months of leaks and speculations, Oppo has finally unveiled its Find X5 Pro, successor to the previous year’s Find X3 Pro. The company also announced the regular Find X5 with a slightly older Snapdragon 888 and the same camera sensors as the X5 Pro. The phones are available in one model each, starting at €1,500 and  €1,000, respectively and are available for pre-order right now with sales beginning March 14.

The X5 Pro also features the 6nm MariSilicon X chip that runs AI noise reduction and other image procession tasks allowing it to capture 4K footage in Ultra Night mode, as well as capture HDR video at 20-bits per channel, an improvement of about four times over the Find X3 Pro. 

The brand has also collaborated with Hasselblad to put out a triple rear camera setup on the phone featuring two 50MP cameras, one primary and the other ultrawide, along with a 13MP telephoto lens.

Taking cues from OnePlus?

The latest flagship from Oppo makes the company only the second smartphone brand after OnePlus to collaborate with the camera maker. How is this partnership different with OnePlus remains to be seen. 

Performance

The phone comes with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC paired with the Adreno 730 GPU. The RAM is locked in at 12GB, thanks to no other variants being offered. The differentiating factor here is the MariSiliconX NPU, which should help the phone get an edge in computational photography and AI tasks.

The 256GB UFS3.1 storage paired with the LPDDR5 RAM running at 3200MHz should be fast enough to keep up with the 8 Gen 1. However, a device like this, where your storage is limited to 256GB with no extended storage support, can be a bit less. 

Display

The screen is a 6.70-inch AMOLED panel with a dynamic refresh rate of 120Hz. It runs at 3216 x 1440 (QHD+) resolution and Oppo is claiming 100% sRGB accuracy. 

Apart from that, you get a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus coating along with 8192 brightness levels. 

Camera

The phone has three cameras on the back coming in at a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide camera with 112-degree FOV and finally, a 13MP telephoto camera. The rear is powered by the Sony IMX766 sensor with a glass front element on the cameras to improve colour accuracy and chromatic aberration.

The front gets a rather modest 32MP selfie camera based on the IMX709 sensor and, by default, has an 80-degree FOV but can automatically switch to 90-degrees when it detects a group selfie.

The Pro mode in the native camera app has Hasselblad’s natural colour calibration feature built-in thanks to the new 13-channel colour sensor replacing the existing 5-channel sensor on the X3 series. Hasselblad also helped develop the master filters in the camera app. 

Battery and Charging

There are two 2500 mAh cells connected in series, powering the phone for a total capacity of 5000 mAh. In terms of charging speed, the phone can do 80W SuperVooc wired charging, 50W AirVooc wireless charging and 10W reverse charging. 

Software

Oppo is running its ColorOS 12 on the phones, powered by Android 12 and features new 3D icons and Omoji — Oppo’s rival to Apple’s animoji Oppo’s face detection algorithm also incorporates an anti-peeping feature which notifications if it catches an undetected face looking at the device. 

ColorOS 12 also features a PC Connect feature allowing data transfer between a Windows PC and the phone using Bluetooth. Oppo claims that this wireless PC connect feature can get up to 45MB/s transfer speed between the phone and a PC.

Additionally, Oppo’s also trying to take a page out of Google’s book by implementing air gestures allowing users to control social apps, take calls, control music and so on with a hand gesture near the phone’s screen. Currently, Air Gestures are supported on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
