The Oppo Find X5 Pro is a powerhouse of a phone, and is probably the fastest on the market right now.
With a Hasselblad camera and dual Sony 50 MP sensors, the camera is top of line, delivering outstanding photos. There's even a secondary chip dedicated to imaging with the MariSilicon X NPU, for AI and machine learning processing.
Make no mistake, the Oppo Find X5 Pro is very expensive, however you can find many deals starting for free (£0) to spread the cost. If it's still to expensive for you, check out the slightly cheaper but equally great Oppo Find X5.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro has one of the best displays you can get on a phone today. The large 6.7 inch LTPO2 AMOLED can produce an impressive 1 billion colours, with HDR10+ support. The resolution is one of the highest we’ve seen on a phone, with 1440 x 3216 pixels for an ultrasharp 525 pixels per inch density. There’s also a 120Hz refresh rate, which can automatically lower itself when suitable in order to save battery life.
Oppo also includes their O1 Ultra Vision Engine technology, which is capable of enhancing resolution and increasing vividness for games and videos.
The display itself is curved around the phone, for an invisible bezel around the side. At the top left, there’s a small pinhole cutout for the selfie camera.
Under the hood, there’s Qualcomm’s top of the line chip with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This is the same chip used in other flagship phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The super fast processing is capable of running any apps or games with ease, for one of the best performing phones you can buy today.
Memory starts from 8GB RAM, with 3 different storage / memory combinations:
- 8GB memory, 256GB storage
- 12GB memory, 256GB storage
- 12GB memory, 512GB storage
The standout feature of the Oppo Find X5 Pro is the Hasselblad camera.
There are dual 50 MP cameras, using the latest IMX766 sensor from Sony. Featuring a 50 MP wide f/1.7 camera, 50 MP ultrawide f/2.2 camera and 13 MP telephoto f/2.4 camera, the triple camera array can produce stunning photos.
Oppo have collaborated with Hasselblad for the camera tuning, with the Hasselblad Camera technology. Their Natural Colour Calibration can deliver more natural looking and accurate colours, with a distinct camera app that makes it feel as if you are using a Hasselblad Camera.
The most exciting addition to the Find X5 Pro is Oppo’s own proprietary MariSilicon X NPU, specifically designed for image processing. Oppo claims the AI powered, 6nm process chip with 18TOPS can deliver huge improvements for images in low light, particularly with video recording with the HDR 4K Ultra Night Video shooting mode. By offloading the workload from the main processor, Oppo claims the MariSilicon X chip can independently process 8 trillion operations per second, for faster image processing with improved quality output.
On the front, there’s a large 32 MP wide f/2.4 selfie camera, which is placed within a round cutout at the top left of the display.
Android 12 will initially ship with the Oppo Find X5 Pro, using Oppo’s own customisations with ColorOS 12.1. Oppo recently announced they will offer 3 Android updates and 4 years of security updates for most of their devices.
The rear of the Oppo Find X5 Pro is covered in a beautiful ceramic surface that comes in either black or white. The design simply looks premium, with a beautiful curved display on the front that seamlessly blends in with the sides.
Oppo claims the ceramic surface is polished in 14 different processes for 269 minutes, delivering a unique look and feel.
On the back, there’s a very large camera bump that also has a unique but distinct design - almost like a hand drawn bubble that slides in with the material. There’s also a prominent Hasselblad logo on the rear, which Oppo is clearly proud to show off.
Oppo will be introducing their 80W SuperVOOC technology, which can charge the Oppo Find X5 Pro from 0% to 50% within 12 minutes. You’ll get the 80W charger in the box, so there’s no need to shell out for another adaptor.
With 50W AIRVOOC, you can also wirelessly charge the huge 5000mAh battery to 100% in just under 47 minutes - some of the fastest wireless charging speeds we’ve seen.
There’s also 10W reverse wireless charging, capable of charging your other devices when on the go.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro will be available in 2 colours from launch:
- Glaze Black
- Ceramic White
