The Oppo Find X5 Pro is expected to be one of the best Android smartphones of 2022. After a very convincing Find X3 Pro last year, let’s see how the brand has managed to improve its formula with this new model.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro was presented alongside the Oppo Find X5 and Oppo Find X5 Lite, but it was of course it that attracted the spotlight with its design and its technical sheet aiming at the very high end. With its Find X range, Oppo wants to demonstrate that it is able to offer one of the best experiences in the Android ecosystem. Last year the Oppo Find X3 Pro had already been very convincing, and we necessarily expect a lot from its successor, the Oppo Find X5 Pro. For the record, the manufacturer decided to go directly from 3 to 5, because the number 4 is considered unlucky in China (“four” is pronounced almost like “death” in Chinese”), where even the floors of buildings can skip 4. Several other Chinese smartphone brands do the same. But don’t make you languish any longer, discover with us everything you need to know about Oppo’s new premium smartphone.
When is the Oppo Find X5 Pro coming out?
The Oppo Find X5 Pro is officially unveiled on February 24, 2022. A pre-order period will follow for marketing scheduled for the month of March.
What is the price of the Oppo Find X5 Pro?
Taking into account the price of the Oppo Find X2 Pro and Find X3 Pro as well as the shortage of components that we are experiencing, we can expect a price of 1199 euros for the Oppo Find X5 Pro.
What is the design of the Oppo Find X5 Pro?
The Oppo Find X5 Pro picks up the aesthetics of the Find X3 Pro in broad strokes, but with a few tweaks here and there. On the back, the photo block is better drawn and we are not really dealing with a square with rounded edges, because one of the sides of the polygon is oblique. This makes for a visually successful effect that better catches the eye. The arrangement of the photo sensors and the LED Flash has also been redesigned. At the front, there is a punch in the upper left corner to house the front camera. The slab is slightly curved on the sides, offering a high screen-to-body ratio for better immersion and to have a large display space in a terminal that is not so gigantic as that.
As for the materials, Oppo has chosen a glass back and an aluminum chassis for its Find X5 Pro. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and the smartphone is IP68 certified waterproof and dustproof. The grip could be difficult for small hands since the mobile still weighs 218 grams and is 8.5 mm thick. The optical fingerprint reader is located under the slab.
What screen size for the Oppo Find X5 Pro?
The screen of the Oppo Find X5 Pro measures 6.7 inches. It is based on AMOLED technology with LTPO 2.0, like the OnePlus 10 Pro. LTPO 2.0 is an evolution of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, which allows devices to automatically adapt the screen refresh rate according to the content displayed. For example, the Oppo Find X5 Pro panel is 120 Hz. The display will therefore be 120 Hz for navigation, interface animations or certain compatible games. But if the user watches a video on Netflix or YouTube, the refresh rate will be reduced, because the videos are anyway in 24 or 25 frames per second. Keeping 120 Hz in this case is useless since we don’t take advantage of it and it consumes energy, and therefore impacts the autonomy of the device.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro enjoys a definition Quad HD+ 1440pan elongated 20:9 aspect ratio, HDR10+ support, 500 nits typical and 1300 nits peak brightness, as well as displaying over a billion colors.
How does the Oppo Find X5 Pro perform?
The Oppo Find X5 Pro embeds a SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 engraved in 4 nm. With its eight cores including a Cortex-X2 clocked at 3.00 GHz, this is Qualcomm’s most powerful chip to date. The smartphone should therefore become one of the most powerful Android mobiles on the market.
As often, the manufacturer offers several memory variants, with the choice between 8, 12 or 16 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of storage space, without the possibility of extending the internal memory via a microSD card. .
The device is of course with the 5G mobile network.
What is the autonomy of the Oppo Find X5 Pro?
With its battery 5000 mAh, the Oppo Find X5 Pro should guarantee good autonomy despite its large 1440p and 120 Hz screen. We will of course have to wait for the test in real conditions to be sure. The smartphone takes very little time to recharge thanks to a power of up to 80W wired. Oppo confirms its expertise and its lead over the competition in this regard. This gives it a significant competitive advantage while the charging speed can greatly affect the quality of the user experience.
The Oppo Find X5 Pro is also compatible with induction charging, which supports up to 50W. Again, we are dealing with performance well above average. For reverse wireless charging, which allows the smartphone battery to be used to charge other devices supporting the Qi protocol, the charging power reaches 10W.
Is the Oppo Find X5 Pro good in photos?
A photo test in good and due form will be necessary to ensure the capabilities of the Oppo Find X5 Pro in this area, but here is already what we can draw from its technical sheet. The partnership with the optical specialist Hasselblad has been renewed. Oppo also highlights the mention of Hasselblad on the rear panel of its Find X5 Pro.
The 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor, with f/1.7 aperture and multi-directional phase detection autofocus, is the same as the Find X3 Pro. Corn its optical stabilization is much more effective thanks to the integration of a very imposing anti-shake module with stabilization on five axes. As a result, the lens and its stabilizer take up a lot of space, displaying dimensions of 22.85 x 25.41 mm. Perhaps that’s why Oppo decided to remove a sensor on the Find X5 Pro, which loses the microscope compared to the Find X3 Pro.
The smartphone, on the other hand, is equipped with an ultra wide-angle sensor of 50 MP and f / 2.2 offering a field of view of 110, with multidirectional phase detection autofocus. It also features a 13 MP and f / 2.4 telephoto lens with standard phase detection autofocus allowing optical zooms of up to 2x. An in-house MariSiliconX chip is said to help improve photo qualityas does Hasselblad Color Calibration technology for color fidelity.
For video, the Oppo Find X5 Pro can shoot in HDR and 10‑bit, in quality 4K at 30 or 60 frames per second, and in 1080p up to 240 frames per second. The 32 MP and f / 2.2 front camera is content with 1080p at 30 frames per second in video.
What version of Android on the Oppo Find X5 Pro?
Oppo Find X5 Pro launches with ColorOS 12.1 interface, based on Android 12. Oppo’s in-house UI has improved a lot over the past few years, offering a smooth experience and additional features.
