OPPO Find X5 takes on Nightography challenge with MariSilicon X

OPPO Find X5

Relying on its own silicon in the OPPO Find X5, OPPO’s night photography credentials are out to rival the Android flagships.

Unveiled ahead of Mobile World Congress, the Find X5 series is the first to take advantage of OPPO’s MariSilicon X dedicated imaging Neural Processing Unit. Based on a 6-nm production process, the MariSilicon X is powerful enough to process RAW images in real time, as well as capture video in Night Video AI mode at 4K resolution with live preview.

Building on this, the handset packs three lenses – a 50MP main camera, accompanied by 50MP ultrawide and 13MP telephoto lenses. On the front is a 32MP selfie camera supporting Hasselblad camera modes, as part of a new three-year partnership with the legendary camera manufacturer. The “Natural Colour Calibration” initiative aims to offer more natural colours and a more refined imaging experience.

To make the most of this, the OPPO Find X5 features a 6.7-inch WQHD+ (2960×1440 resolution) 120 Hz adaptive AMOLED display. The phone features a 10-bit full-path colour management system, from capture to storage and display.

The OPPO Find X5 is built on a Snapdragon 888 power plant, while the Find X5 Pro steps up to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The Pro also features a world-first mobile 5-axis Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) system.

Flash charging

With support for 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. With 50W AIRVOOC, it charges up to 100 per cent wirelessly in just 47 minutes.

At Mobile World Congress 2022, OPPO announced two breakthroughs in high-speed flash charging: 150W SUPERVOOC with Battery Health Engine (BHE) and 240W SUPERVOOC. The latter can charge a 4,500mAh battery from 1% to 100% in around 9 minutes.

BHE is powered by OPPO’s customised battery management chip and includes two key technologies: Smart Battery Health Algorithm and Battery Healing Technology. Together, they improve battery health, safety and performance by optimising the hardware and software.

OPPO has integrated BHE within the 150W SUPERVOOC flash charge technology, allowing the battery to maintain 80% of its original capacity after as many as 1,600 charge cycles – double the current industry standard.

BHE will be incorporated into most mid-to-high-end OPPO and OnePlus phones in the future. The 150W SUPERVOOC flash charge standard with BHE will debut on a OnePlus smartphone in the second quarter of this year.
