Oppo Find X5 Specifications (Leaked)
Oppo might not have revealed much about its next-gen flagship smartphone, except for its design and Hasselblad cameras, we have seen a ton of details leak online recently. We already know that the company has signed a multi-year camera deal with Hasselblad, but will also be backing the Find X5’s cameras with its custom MariSilicon X Imaging NPU. This will further enhance images using AI features to deliver a “world-class photography” experience.
As for the camera hardware specs, you can expect to find a 50MP Sony IMX766 primary camera with OIS, a 50MP ultra-wide lens, and a 13MP telephoto camera with up to 5x zoom support. Apart from this, the Oppo Find X5 series will include a 6.67-inch QHD+ AMOLED LTPO display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 3216 x 1440 pixels resolution, and 10-bit HDR support. You will also find a 32MP punch-hole selfie snapper.
Under the hood, the Find X5 series will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, along with up to 12GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to 256GB of UFS storage. You are also likely to find a 5,000mAh battery with 80W fast-charging support, much like the recently launched OnePlus 10 Pro here. The devices will support 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6E. Moreover, they will run ColorOS 12.1 based on Android 12 out-of-the-box.
A recent leak by WinFuture also revealed that the Oppo Find X5 series will carry a price tag of around €1,200 (around Rs 1,02,000) in European regions. It will be available to buy in two colorways – Ceramic White and Ceramic Black (also confirmed by official teasers). These are merely leaks, though. We suggest you take these with a grain of salt and wait for the official announcement. We will be bringing you live coverage of the event next week, so stay tuned.
