A number of teasers and leaks later, Oppo has introduced its flagship Find X5 series globally. The lineup comprises the Find X5 and Find X5 Pro. While the Find X5 Pro gets the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, the Find X5 settles for last year’s chipset. Both phones have set their bets on the cameras with the inclusion of the company’s MarSilicon X imaging chip, which was unveiled recently, and a Hasselblad branding. Here’s all you need to know about the new Oppo Find X5 series.
Oppo Find X5 Pro: Specs and Features
The Oppo Find X5 Pro carries forward the trendy design of big camera housings but with a twist. the rear camera hump has a unique amoeba-like shape, which juts out a bit. Although, Oppo claims to have taken design inspiration from space exploration. The back panel has a ceramic finish with black and white colors to choose from.
Let’s talk cameras. This is the area, which can be safely considered the Find X5 PRo’s highlight. There are three rear cameras, including a 50MP main camera with Sony IMX766 sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide camera (also with Sony IMX766 sensor) with a 110-degrees FoV (not as wide as the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 150-degree lens), and a 13MP telephoto lens with up to 20x digital zoom. The front camera, embedded in the display’s punch-hole cutout, uses a Sony IMX709 sensor for 60% more light.

It supports better low-light photography, real-time RAW processing, up to 20x times faster 4K AI performance, AI Noise Reduction, and more. there’s support for SLR-level 5-axis OISa 13-channel spectral sensor for better color detection, Cinematic mode, Hasselblad’s Natural Color Calibration (like on the OnePlus 9 and 10 Pro), 4K Ultra Night Video, and more.
