It was only a matter of time but OPPO is now getting in on the fun with its first major smartphone announcement of the year. In 2021, the Find X3 Pro was largely considered one of the best phones of the year with an incredibly unique and powerful camera system. Fast forward to now, and OPPO is looking to keep the good times rolling with the Find X5 lineup.
Unfortunately, we have to wait a little bit longer to learn what the Find X5 Pro will bring to the market, but OPPO has shared a few key details leading up to the announcement. For one, the entire Find X5 series will be announced on February 24 and will be live-streamed for everyone to follow along.
As we expected already, the Find X5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is already powering a few 2022 flagships including the Galaxy S22 and OnePlus 10 Pro. Without sharing specifics, OPPO confirmed that the Find X5 Pro will offer “unrivaled night shooting capabilities.” Considering how much of a focus other phone makers such as Samsung and Google are putting on night photography, it only makes sense for OPPO to keep up, if not surpass, it’s competitors.
Providing a bit of a teaser, OPPO gave us a glimpse at what the Find X5 will look like, keeping a design similar to that of its predecessor. The back glass contours into the camera module, offering a sleek look and likely an extremely comfortable feel while holding and using the phone.
With less than two weeks to go, OPPO has a lot at stake in a world that continues to see Samsung dominate the flagship Android space in various markets. We’re excited to see what has been in the works and whether the Find X5 Pro can replicate the success seen by last year’s model.
