The Oppo Find X3 Pro was one of the smartphone highlights of 2021, bringing a tasteful mix of innovative features and the expected flagship fare. Now that it’s 2022, it’s time to talk about the likely sequel. The news that the Oppo Find X5 Pro (or Find X4 Pro) is in the works shouldn’t come as a surprise, but how could Oppo take its latest flagship to the next level?

Well, below we collect the latest credible rumors about Oppo’s new flagship ahead of its official launch.


Oppo Find X5 Pro: name and release date

While the previous device was titled Find X3 Pro, there is some debate about what the company will call its successor. The natural title should be the Oppo Find X4 Pro, but a widespread Chinese superstition could prevent the company from using the perceived unlucky number.

Notably, OnePlus is known for skipping the OnePlus 4, while Realme has skipped the Realme 4, but others like Xiaomi have used the number across multiple device lines. Only time will tell what Oppo will do. Nevertheless, in this article we will call it the Oppo Find X5 Pro.

As for the release date, the Find X3 Pro launched in March and went on sale a month later, so we expect its successor to adopt a similar schedule. Oppo has said a launch in the first quarter of 2022 is imminent.

Design

The Find X3 Pro had a unique aesthetic, complete with a slightly raised camera bump and glass unibody. We will probably see a small evolution of this design based on the Find X5 Pro leaks.

Per renders leaked by tipster Steve Hemmersstofer and Preparation based on prototype schemes, the elevated camera module may return with a few minor tweaks. Unlike the Find X3 Pro’s three different lenses, the Find X5 Pro seemingly has two prominent lenses with a third in a glass insert above the flash. A high-gloss finish also gives way to a matte coating on the back.

The dark wallpaper does a great job of hiding what appears to be a punched hole in the top left corner, and there’s also a slim speaker grille just above the screen.

Other details we can get from these renderings include two suspected volume buttons on the left side of the device and what is likely to be a power button on the right. We don’t get a good view of the top or bottom of the device, but we doubt whether there is a headphone jack.

Features and Specifications

What can we expect under the skin of the Oppo Find X5 Pro? Well, the leaked specs point to minor improvements.

Per Digital Chat Station, the phone could have a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120Hz display — the same numbers associated with the Find X3 Pro’s LTPO display.

Of course, as a 2022 flagship, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is expected alongside a maximum of 12 GB of RAM and faster charging speeds of 80 W. There’s no mention of the battery size, but we’d be surprised if the Find X5 Pro is slightly less than Contains 4,500 mAh.

The lack of obvious upgrades is apparent when looking at the tipped image specs. Digital Chat Station believes a pair of 50MP 1/1.5-inch sensors will headline the device, accompanied by a 13 or 12MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom. Remarkably, the microscope shooter does not get a specific mention, suggesting that the camera may not return. Rounding out the offer is a 32 MP selfie shooter.

While the camera hardware remains relatively unchanged, a big new addition could be Oppo’s proprietary imaging chip, the MariSilicon X. The company praised its efficiency in processing image data and performing noise reduction, 4K video recording and more.

We can also expect the Find X5 Pro to launch with Android 12 based Color OS 12.

Oppo Find X5 Pro: prices and availability

The Oppo Find X3 Pro was not a cheap smartphone, priced at €1,149/£1,099 (~$1,483-$1,301) in mainland Europe/UK. It was cheaper than the Find X2 Pro, but just barely. That’s why we expect the Find X5 Pro to charge a similar fee.

As for availability, we expect Oppo to launch the device initially in China and eventually offer it in Europe. It doesn’t seem likely that the phone will launch in the US, but a debut in India isn’t entirely far-fetched. The standard Oppo Find X2 eventually made its mark in the country.
