The rumored Oppo Find X5 Pro could take the design of the Oppo Find X3 Pro and work with it, while tapping into the camera skills of Hasselblad photography powerhouse.
This goes by an image of what appears to be an actual Find X5 Pro unit, which was posted on Chinese social networks, as spotted by Abhishek Yadav on Twitter.
The image shows how the camera module is integrated into the unibody chassis of the phone, as we saw with the Find X3 Pro, only potentially a little flatter and housing a new range of cameras.
The specifications of the phone have also been filled in. And unsurprisingly, the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip will be at the heart of the phone.

The images certainly resemble those revealed by the generally reliable leaker OnLeaks on Preperation at the end of 2021 (pictured above).
Alongside the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Oppo Find X5 Pro (more on the missing X4 in a bit) will apparently feature a 2K 120Hz LTPO 2.0 display, previously rumored to be 6.7-inches . It’s said to pack a 5,000mAh battery that supports wired charging speeds of up to 80W and 50W wirelessly, meaning it should be one of the fastest phones around. load.
But it’s perhaps the cameras that are the most interesting thing: in the shots provided, the familiar Hasselblad branding appears alongside the Oppo logo. The Swedish camera maker has already teamed up with Oppo’s sister company OnePlus on the OnePlus 9 Pro and more recently on the OnePlus 10 Pro, and it looks like Oppo is getting in on the action.
The camera array will apparently consist of two 50MP Sony IMX766 lenses, supported by a 13MP S5K3M5 sensor. It actually looks like a slight downgrade from the Find X3 Pro, which had four cameras on the back. But given that the fourth was a 3MP microscope lens which we described as “a bit of a gimmick” in our review; it was neat but we wouldn’t be too sorry to see it cancelled.
But what about the MIA Oppo Find X4 Pro? Although there is no confirmation of this, it seems to be another victim of superstition.
In China, the number four is considered unlucky and is closely associated with death. This is widely believed to be the reason we jumped straight from the OnePlus 3T to the OnePlus 5, so it’s no surprise that the feat is repeated here, given that Oppo and OnePlus are so closely linked.
Not all companies pander to superstition, of course. Despite some concerns from triskaidekaphobes, Apple went ahead and unveiled the iPhone 13 last year, when the company might as well have tossed the box by launching the iPhone 12 instead.
