Oppo Find X5 Series Shopping Guide Everything You Need to Know About New Phones

Equipped with the Oppo Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Find X5 Pro (with the Hasselblad camera as a backup) looks like a real competitor to the S22 Ultra.

Oppo’s Find X5 series is here with three phones led by the high-end Find X5 Pro. With a ceramic body, Hasselblad powered camera and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 inside, it looks like Oppo’s most excellent flagship to date and a real competitor to the S22 Ultra.

The usual Find X5 and Find X5 Lite are impressive options in themselves, and Oppo’s latest flagship kit should offer something for everyone when it goes on sale. And it will have to wait a while – after the official presentation, the phones will not be on the shelves for a month.

We’ve already reviewed the Oppo Find X5 Pro, so if you want to know what we think of the hero product, check it out or keep reading for all the details.

When will Oppo Find X5 go on sale?

We expected Oppo’s phone to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona later this month, but the company instead announced the phones on February 24 before the show. It’s launched in the UK, Europe, and Asia – but won’t officially arrive in the United States.

This is not the time for phones to go on sale. In the UK, where Tech Advisor is located, the phones won’t go on sale for a full month on March 24, although the exact date is different in other countries.

Pre-orders have already started in the UK and it’s offering a gift wrap that includes a 50W wireless charger, Oppo Watch Free, Oppo Enco X earphones and phone case. The best deals we found.

In previous years, we have seen that the Find X series includes the usual, Pro, Lite and Neo models. No sign of Neo this year – but Oppo has no plans yet to launch it by the end of the year.

Why is it called Find X4?

It’s been a few months since we heard that Oppo might skip the Find X4, and the company has now confirmed that this is the case.

The company told us that this is because it sees the Oppo Find N as the fourth generation of foldable Folds and is doing so in the fifth.

While Oppo isn’t saying much, it’s easy to imagine that there could be another reason for the confusion – 4 is a failing number in Chinese culture, similar to 13 in the West, and it’s not uncommon for brands to skip that figure outright. their phone numbers.

How much does Oppo Find X5 cost?

The Find X5 series isn’t available in the US, so there’s no official price in dollars – but how much it will cost in Europe:

  • Find X5 Pro – £1,049/€1,299
  • Find X5 – £749/€999
  • Find X5 Lite – £419/€499

These prices are roughly in line with previous registrations, but the Pro’s price has been reduced by £50 in the UK and €150 in Europe (or at least Ireland, where our price data comes from). Wow

What will be the features and design of the Oppo Find X5 series?

Since there are three phones in the Find X5 series, we will review them one by one, starting with the highest-quality model.

Find X5 Pro

Oppo surprised us all with the weird design of the Find X3 Pro, and the company clung to the Find X5 Pro.

The phone is available in both white and black, and has an ultra-hard ceramic coating on the back.

The two colors are called Glaze Black and Ceramic White, which is a bit misleading – both are actually made of ceramic. A third model covered in light blue vegan skin is available in China, but we do not expect this coating to be available elsewhere in the world.

Gorilla Glass Victus is used to cover and protect the screen, and IP68 rating provides some protection against external influences.

The curved camera module of the X3 Pro is back, but now with a more bizarre irregular design.

There is also a way of insanity – the bend at the bottom edge is designed to adapt to where your finger rests while holding the phone, and allows the heavy phone (218 g) to rest comfortably.

Inside the phone, the Find X5 Pro is mostly equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 – there is an alternative version that uses MediaTek Dimensity 9000, but this option is only available in China. Both chips are based on a 4nm process and actually have very similar features, so don’t expect a big performance difference between the two phones.

The phone comes with at least 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory in at least one version for Europe.

The screen is a 6.7-inch WQHD + AMOLED display using LTPO 2.0 technology for refresh rates ranging from 1-120Hz. Most impressively, it also offers a partial change in the refresh rate – which means that if you do a lot of tasks, the phone runs the program at 120Hz on one part of the screen and down to 1Hz on the other part of the screen.

Wait for the 5000mAh cell with 80W SuperVOOC wired charger and 50W AirVOOC wireless on the battery. It also supports the 30W wired PPS standard and the 15W wireless EPP standard.

Let’s go back to the camera you got the triple rear camera. As before, you get a dual main camera setup with the same 50Mp sensor used for both the main lens and the ultra wide angle. The main camera has an aperture of f / 1.7 and uses 5-axis optical image stabilization (OIS), which is located at ultra-wide f / 2.2 and uses a free-form lens to reduce distortion.

The third lens is a simple 13Mp, f / 2.4 telephoto lens and has 2x zoom. Neither micro-lenses nor intensive periscope magnification this time around – Oppo says he thinks customers are more interested in stabilization and night-time performance in the main cameras, so he’s putting all his efforts there.

The front has a 32 Mp, f / 2.4 selfie camera that uses an RGBW lens.

Oppo Find X5

So far, you have seen that phones have the Hasselblad logo. It is already a camera company partnering with Oppo’s subsidiary OnePlus – it has helped with cameras on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, and also contributes to the 10 Pro. In this sense, it is not a big shock to see that he is also collaborating with Oppo, and this partnership was formalized before the presentation of the Find X5 series.

“After the success of OnePlus and Hasselblad last year, we are delighted to see the partnership enter a new phase of development, giving more users around the world a chance to enjoy the legendary Hasselblad mobile browsing experience,” said Pete Lau. , Chief Product Director of Oppo. “Camera color performance has always been the focus of some of Oppo and Hasselblad’s DNA. We’re excited to be able to explore the future of the Hasselblad Camera for Mobile together.”

Some of Hasselblad’s contributions to the Find X5 Pro are limited to software, and are similar to what we saw on OnePlus last year. The Hasselblad brand is found in the camera app (including different shutter sounds) and you also get the Hasselblad Pro mode, some color filters contributed by three Hasselblad photography ambassadors, and XPAN photo mode with the unique 65:24 of this camera system. aspect ratio. .

You may also have seen the MariSilicon brand in the camera module. This applies to Oppo’s MariSilicon X NPU, the company’s first internal chip, designed to help develop the advanced imagery found in the Find X5 and X5 Pro.

Oppo Find X5

Instead of relying on the integrated ISPs of the Snapdragon and Dimensity chips, Oppo has built a 6nm independent neural imaging chipset to focus on specific areas it wants to improve in its flagship camera experience. The MariSilicon X promises a much improved dynamic range (four times wider than the Find X3 Pro cameras can shoot) and also the X3 Pro’s artificial intelligence noise reduction algorithm, which is now 20 times faster than the X3 Pro. . is. .

Find X5 Pro ships with Android 12 and ColorOS 12.1, and Oppo currently promises three-year Android version updates up to Android 13 and 14 and 15.

Find X5

The Find X5 bears a striking resemblance to the Pro, with its simplified design and several specific features.

Find X5

The design is generally similar, but the camera module does not connect to the rest of the phone in the same way. Although the phone is black or white, it is made of glass rather than ceramic. It also has an IP54 protection rating, which is only slightly lower.

It is also slightly smaller thanks to the 6.55-inch screen. Although only FHD + resolution and 120Hz, the same LTPO does not have variable refresh rate technology.

The main chip is last year’s Snapdragon 888 – still very powerful to be honest – and although the memory is the same at 256 GB, the RAM is slightly lower at 8 GB.

You also get a smaller battery at 4800 mAh. Wired charging speeds are the same, but here the wireless is limited to 30W AirVOOC.

Find X5

The camera structure is essentially the same and still benefits from the MariSilicon X NPU under the surface. The four lenses are basically the same, but the main lens here has a slightly narrower f / 1.8 aperture and only 2-axis OIS. The selfie camera does not use the same RGBW sensor, and the phone has a slightly more limited color temperature sensor than the Pro model. Expect a slightly less impressive color range and accuracy, but the differences should be minimal.

Find X5 Lite

On the contrary, Find X5 Lite is not really a new phone – it is a rebranded version of the Oppo Reno 7 5G. This is not uncommon for Oppo, which often rebranded phones for different markets.

Find X5 Lite

Still not a bad phone in any way. You get a MediaTek Dimensity 900, a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED display and a 65 W battery for a 4500 mAh battery. The camera has three rear lenses, the 64Mp main camera is equipped with 8Mp ultra wide and 2Mp macro – in fact, it is almost identical to the features of the OnePlus Nord CE 2.

Note that this phone does not use MariSilicon X NPU or Hasselblad camera modifications and is the only phone that comes with Android 11, not 12 in the set.
