OPPO has officially unveiled their brand new Find X5 series today via a livestream event. Over the course of the event, along with the new Find X5 series of devices, OPPO also revealed the successor to their flagship wireless earbuds, the Enco X, in the form of the Enco X2, along with global availability of their OPPO Watch Free Smart Band. Below are all of the key specs for each of the devices along with their pricing and availability.
OPPO Find X5 Pro
Starting with OPPO’s new flagship device, the Find X5 Pro features a 6.7″ HDR10+ AMOLED LTPO 2.0 display that offers a Quad HD+ resolution of 3216 x 1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 1-120Hz, all protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. Following on from last year’s Find X3 Pro, the Find X5 Pro will also pack a screen capable of displaying 1 billion colours so expect images and videos to pop, especially when viewing photos captured with the MariSilicon powered rear cameras. More on these later.
The Find X5 Pro will come in one memory and storage option and that’s 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage. OPPO did say that, like previously, you’ll be able to use some of the phone’s storage to help add to your available RAM, all the way up to 19GB. Under the hood is Snapdragon’s newest 8 Gen 1 processor along with a 5000mAh battery capable of 80W ‘SuperVOOC’ wired charging and 50W wireless charging (via OPPO’s own wireless charging dock.) Thankfully, the Find X5 Pro comes with the 80W compatible charger in the box.
As for the camera experience, the Oppo Find X5 Pro offers a triple rear camera system wrapped in a flowing ceramic finish, a step up from last year’s flowing glass rear on the Find X3 Pro. This consists of a 50MP main camera (IMX766), a 50MP ultrawide camera (IMX766), and a 13MP telephoto camera (2X telephoto zoom, 5X hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom).
This is almost identical to the 2021 flagship with the exception of the micro-lens, which has been omitted on this year’s device. The main sensor has had its OIS upgraded to a 5 point system, meaning both the lens and sensor are capable of shifting inside the device to keep camera shake to a minimum and help with the device’s low light capabilities.
A 32MP camera in a left-aligned punch-hole cutout handles selfies and video calls. This selfie camera also offers ‘intelligent switch’ when it comes to the field of view so it can jump from 80 to 90 degrees when it sees there are multiple people in the frame, handy for those group selfies. The newly announced RGBW sensor is also expected to let in 60% more light than last year’s model.
As I mentioned earlier, OPPO are using their new, self-developed neural processing unit (NPU), MariSilicon, to handle a lot of the new rear cameras’ abilities. This new NPU was showcased to really enhance low light 4K videos and night photography. The examples shown during the event really did demonstrate some exceptional low light capabilities, both in stills and video, so we can’t wait to test them out for ourselves.
The Find X5 Pro, and its smaller sibling, the Find X5, are the first OPPO devices to benefit from the recently announced Hasselblad partnership, so expect expert-level features and tweakable settings when using the newly designed ‘Pro’ mode along with a filmic-looking capture mode called ‘Hasselblad XPAN’. OnePlus users may already be aware of similar modes given that the recent OnePlus devices also partnered with the famous photographer brand. (OPPO is a sister-company to OnePlus).
OPPO Find X5
The next in line to the Pro model is the Find X5. Packing a 6.55″ FHD+ AMOLED Gorilla Glass Victus display, capable of 120hz refresh rate, powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset and 8GB RAM/256GB of storage. When it comes to cameras, The Find X5 packs the same lenses as the pro-model, albeit with slightly reduced technical specs for things like OIS and colour temperature sensors.
For power, there’s a 4800mAh battery which is capable of the same 80W wired charging speeds but a reduced 30W wireless charging speed. It’s IP54 protected and the rear of the device has a glass finish, unlike the Pro model’s ceramic.
OPPO Find X5 Lite
Finally, closing out the new Find X5 series is the Find X5 Lite. Being the entry-level device in the line up, things have been reduced that bit more compare to the mid-to-upper range Find X5. The Lite model houses a 6.43″ FHD+ 90hz AMOLED panel, a 4500mAh battery capable of 65W wired charging and is powered by a MediaTek Dimesity 900 processor and 8GB/256GB memory configuration.
For photography, there is a 64MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro lens along with a 32MP selfie camera round front. It will run Android 11 out of the box but you can expect this to be upgraded to Android 12 in due course.
OPPO Enco X2 TWS Earbuds
Following on from their first pair of premium wireless earbuds, the Enco X, OPPO also took the time to reveal their successor in the form of the Enco X2. Continuing their partnership with Dynaudio, these new earbuds pack 11mm dynamic drivers with a 6mm diaphragm, noise cancelling capabilities up to 45dB and a speak to chat function.
They are IP54 protected, support Qi wireless charging and just 5mins of a charge can provide 2 hours of audio playback. The earbuds and case combined are said to offer 40 hours of playback with the earbuds themselves offering 5 hours of use with ANC turned on.
Finally, the last device announced, which was more an announcement of its global availability, is the OPPO Watch Free Smart Band. The band has a 1.64″ 2.5D curved AMOLED screen with 326PPI, Bluetooth 5.0, 24-hour heart rate monitoring and advanced sleep function with SpO2 monitoring that can track and generate the wearer’s sleep report, it can even record and playback snoring via your phone, which should help settle any arguments with significant others whether you were snoring or not.
The band promises up to 14 days of long battery life and has fast charging that offers one day of usage with 5 minutes of charging. It can also track over 100 sports modes with automatic tracking in 6 sports modes including running, walking, outdoor cycling, swimming, elliptical machine, and rowing machine.
