It seems that Chinese smartphone manufacturers have joined in a new competition – who will ask for more for their flagships. This impression is created when looking at the price, which is put on premium solutions. The next contestants are Oppo Find X5 and Oppo Find X5 Pro. Check out the price at which they will arrive.
With the light hand of insiders, a presentation slide revealed the price tags for the Oppo Find X5 Pro. And this is worth looking at, at least from the standpoint of how Chinese companies handle pricing. True, Oppo devices have never been cheap, and the company has long made it a rule to ask a lot for its smartphones. But with the Oppo Find X5 series, it will set a new price record for itself, without taking into account the foldable Oppo Find N.
Oppo Find X5 Pro should be released in three versions; where the youngest will offer 8/256 GB and they will ask $1100 for it. The 12/256 GB version will cost $1,180 and the 12/512 GB version will cost $1,260.
The increase in prices compared to its predecessor is tangible. Recall that the price of the Oppo Find X3 Pro started at $ 847 and in the basic version they also offered 8/256 GB of memory. Against the background of the cost of Oppo Find X5 Pro, the price tag for the ideologically close OnePlus 10 Pro already looks quite modest, for which in the 8/256 GB version they ask for $ 785 in China.
Oppo Find X5 Pro
The Oppo Find X5 Pro smartphone, which will be officially presented on February 24, will be the first device based on the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 platform. This processor was introduced back in November last year, but it has not yet reached commercial devices.
Earlier it was reported that the Find X5 Pro model will carry Qualcomm’s premium Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. New teasers say that the smartphone will also debut in the Dimensity Edition variant with the Dimensity 9000 chip.
Recall that the Dimensity 9000 solution combines eight cores. One high-performance Cortex-X2 with a frequency of 3.05 GHz; three Cortex-A710 with a frequency of up to 2.85 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A510 with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. The processor is endowed with an Arm Mali-G710 accelerator and a 5G modem.
At first, the Oppo Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition model will be released in the Chinese market; and then it will reach other regions.
The device is expected to receive a 6.7-inch Quad HD + AMOLED LTPO 2.0 display with a resolution of 1440 × 3216 pixels; a 32-megapixel front camera and a triple rear camera in a configuration of 50 + 50 + 13 megapixels.
