Oppo Find X5 Pro gets flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor

Oppo’s flagship Find X3 Pro was released in March 2021 to great reviews. Now, the next device rumored to be the Oppo Find X5 Pro is expected to release this March. Sources have suggested that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which is Snapdragon’s most powerful processor yet.

Interestingly, it seems likely that there will be no Oppo Find X4 Pro as the number 4 is not considered to be lucky in Chinese. The number is considered to be nearly homophonous to the word “death” in Cantonese. The details of the upcoming handset were leaked by Digital Chat Station and Abhishek Yadav, two well-known tipsters in the digital arena. Meanwhile, a tipster called OnLeaks, shared the first photos of the phone below.

The leaked details have revealed that the smartphone will have a QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is standard for most flagship phones. The colors of the model are unknown at this point. However, the device is expected to feature a triple camera array at the back. The main camera would have a 50-megapixel sensor, and the ultrawide camera next to it will have the same sensor resolution. The leaks revealed that the 50MP cameras would be Sony IMX766 sensors, which also powered the Realme GT 2 and Xiaomi 12 ranges of smartphones. The final rear camera will top out at 13MP. A 32MP selfie camera will complete the camera array.

The phone will have a 5,000mAh battery coupled with 80 watts of fast wired charging, as well as 50W of fast wireless charging, It hasn’t been revealed yet if there will be multiple variants and we don’t know pricing either.

Oppo earlier announced several new products at the “Oppo Inno Day” event in mid-December 2021. The company officially integrated with OnePlus last year, and the pair are currently working on a wide range of devices. Additionally, their respective operating systems, Oxygen OS and Color OS, will have their own branding, but they will have the same code and be developed by the same unified team. All this means that the new features and software we get on the Oppo Find X5 Pro are likely to come to the next OnePlus flagship device as well.

Oppo has scored a few wins over the past year, starting with the Find X3 Pro, continuing with some impressive tech announcements, and culminating with the folding Find N smartphone. The Find X5 Pro should bring everything it has learned together, combining the excitement and fun of the Find X3 Pro and the hardware prowess of the Find N, and showcasing all its newly announced tech.

I’ve spent 24 hours with the Oppo Find X5 Pro to find out if it has succeeded.
Great looks, ruined by one thing
The Oppo Find X5 Pro is a beautiful smartphone. Just look at the way the camera module rises out of the ceramic case, ending in a shaved-flat surface housing the camera lenses. The flowing shape of the body has a natural look, yet the flat module is so obviously machined, you can almost see and hear the machines creating it when you look at the phone. Replacing the Find X3 Pro’s matte glass with ceramic gives the phone more scratch resistance, plus a warmer, grippier texture. Polishing it to such a high-gloss finish emphasizes its curves.

The next big smartphone release from Oppo is coming on February 24. The company has confirmed the Find X5 series will be revealed at 11 a.m. GMT on that day, which is 6 a.m. ET and 3 a.m. PT, so those not in the U.K. will need to be up bright and early to catch the announcement event when it streams live on YouTube.

Oppo’s early warning also officially tells us the name of its next flagship phones, the Find X5. The phones will follow the Find X3 series, released in early 2021. It seems Oppo has decided to avoid the number four, likely due to it being considered bad luck in China. Although we don’t know how many phones will make up the Find X5 series, expect a standard Find X5 to join the Find X5 Pro, and probably a Find X5 Lite.
