OPPO launched its Find X5 series in the UAE on June 22 at the Infinity Des Lumières. The Find X5 series is said to feature a futuristic aesthetic that exudes clean, modern sophistication and world-first imaging experiences. These include a dedicated imaging neural processing unit, which overcomes smartphone video capture’s greatest challenge – night time recording.
Ethan Xue, president of OPPO MEA said, “We are excited to launch the Find X5 series in the region, supported by a number of strategic partners including Hasselblad, and Dolby Atmos with a launch event at Infinity Des Lumières. The new addition to the Find X Series is the first smartphone series to be powered by OPPO’s MariSilicon X imaging NPU and other industry-leading features. It was only fitting to unveil the Find X5 series to stakeholders at Infinity Des Lumières, creating an immense, futuristic digital experiencewith their current theme of Destination Cosmos, showcasing the vastness of the universe. This synergetic collaboration allowed us to pay homage to Hasselblad’s most iconic moment, being the cameras that were sent to document the historical moment of the first men on the moon.”

Ashim Mathur, senior regional director, Japan and Emerging Markets, Dolby Laboratories said, “We have had a long-standing relationship with OPPO, and will continue to work together in order to provide a best-in-class on-the-go entertainment experience to consumers. Consumers in UAE can bring the cinematic experience into their pockets and now enjoy the latest shows and movies in Dolby Atmos on the Find X5 Pro. Dolby Atmos creates a detailed, engaging listening experience that connects you more deeply with your favorite entertainment. It makes you feel like you’re inside the story with a rich, expansive sound that flows all around you and reveals every detail.”
4K ultra night video
Based on a 6nm process crafted for top-tier imaging performance, the MariSilicon X not only packs the most powerful AI computing power available today, it also runs an advanced AI noise reduction (AINR) algorithm designed by the OPPO Research Institute. This means it can detect and reduce noise in each frame, pixel by pixel, while preserving finer detail, skin tone, color accuracy.
The result is a four times improvement in perceived night video resolution, less grain and superior color reproduction, making 4K ultra night video possible for the first time on an Android smartphone, with each frame as clean as a still photo.
Working closely with Sony to customize an IMX709 sensor for Find X5 Pro’s front camera, OPPO has integrated MariSilicon X to ensure selfies look better than ever, with more texture and more accurate color reproduction – even in challenging light conditions.
The smartphone also features Hasselblad natural color calibration in Pro Mode and a range of creative master filters, bringing iconic natural colour, professional color profile and style to mobile photography.
Design and performance
Featuring a futuristic design, the back of the Find X5 Pro is available in Ceramic White and Glaze Black. The ceramic back panel is two times stronger than any conventional glass panel, and double as effective for heat dissipation. It is also water, and dust resistant with an IP68 rating.
Furthermore, the phone features a 6.7-inch ultra-clear curved AMOLED screen. With a WQHD+ resolution, and 100 per cent P3 color gamut coverage, the Find X5 Pro’s 10-bit screen displays more than one billion colours, creating smooth tonal and color gradations, displaying the full depth and range of even the most subtle shifts in color .
Powered by the latest-generation, multicore Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, the Find X5 Pro is supercharged to handle even the most demanding games and applications, said the company in a statement. Based on a compact, 4nm manufacturing process, Qualcomm’s integrated 2022 flagship GPU offers 30 per cent higher performance, and 25 per cent more power efficiency than the previous generation, in addition to enhanced AI capabilities.
OPPO has also doubled down on efforts to boost battery life and level-up power management. The large, 5000mAh dual-cell battery reflects a capacity increase of more than 11 per cent over the Find X3 Pro.
With the support of enhanced 80W Supervooc flash-charging technology, the Find X5 Pro can be charged from close to empty to 50 per cent in just 12 minutes, and with 50W Airvooc, it powers up to 100 per cent wirelessly in just 47 minutes.
