OnePlus began working with Hasselblad to improve the quality of its cameras. It does not, however, have sole rights to the brand, and Oppo’s relatives will also gain. Remember those live photos of the Oppo Find X5 Pro from last month? They exhibited the Hasselblad logo on the same line as the Oppo logo.
On the modified camera bump, they also displayed a “Powered by MariSilicon” stamp—MariaSilicon is Oppo’s in-house brand for image processing chips. Because the X5 Pro will use much of the same hardware as the X3 Pro, these will be the most significant camera enhancements.
The two Sony IMX766 sensors (50 MP, 1/1.56″, 1.0 m) are included. One will be used in the primary camera (behind an f/1.7 lens), while the other will be used in the ultra-wide (f/2.2). The MariSilicon CPU will handle image processing in 10-bit color space, as well as drive the Omni-directional autofocus mechanism as swiftly as possible.
However, the telephoto camera could be different. According to WinFuture, the Find X5 Pro will have a 13 MP camera with 5x hybrid zoom. In comparison, the X3 Pro’s 13 MP tele camera has only 2x optical magnification. The X5 Pro had only 2x optical magnification in an earlier leak, so this could be another case of the same hardware, different processing.
The front camera, on the other hand, will almost certainly be different, as it will most likely use the new IMX709 sensor from the Reno7 series, which will replace the older IMX615. It will have the same 32-megapixel resolution and an f/2.2 lens with a 90-degree field of view.
The electrical system will also see incremental improvements, with battery capacity increasing to 5,000 mAh (from 4,500 mAh) and charging power increasing to 80W (from 65W). Wireless charging will be supported on the phone as well, but the power will be determined later.
The X5 Pro is likely to have a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a 1440p+ resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. It will be guarded this time by Gorilla Glass Victus. The phone’s body, which is comprised of aluminum and glass, will be dust and water-resistant to the same degree as before.
The phone will be bigger and heavier than its predecessor, due in part to the battery, at 8.5 mm and 218 g (up from 8.3 mm and 193 g).
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset will be paired with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage in the Oppo Find X5 Pro (no microSD slot). The Pro model, which will be one of three in the family, will most likely cost more than €1,200. Because the Lite will be a rebadged Reno7, the Oppo Find X5, which will be powered by the Dimensity 9000, will be the only option. The Find X5 trio is expected to be unveiled by the end of the month.
