Oppo is one of the most popular mobile phone brands in New Zealand and the details of its upcoming newest flagship phone appear to have been leaked.

Digital Chat Station, a popular Chinese leaker, posted a screenshot on Weibo showing the new phone and detailing its specifications, but later deleted it.

According to the leaker, the spec of the Oppo Find X5 Pro is very close to that of the OnePlus 10 Pro - which is perhaps not a surprise given they're owned by the same company.

There was some surprise articulated that Oppo may go straight from the X3 Pro to the X5 Pro, with speculation it may be due to the number four being associated with death in China.

Despite that negative association, the company has used the number four in other phones - including the Reno 4 - so it may be premature.

According to Digital Chat Station, the X5 Pro is going to have a 6.7-inch QHD AMOLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate.

It'll be powered by the new top of the line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and include a 5000mAh battery with both wired and wireless charging. There's also a 32-megapixel (MP) front-facing camera.

Those specs are all the same as the OnePlus 10 Pro. But there are some subtle differences.

The X5 Pro is rumoured to have an additional MariSilicon X chip for neural processing, which adds artificial intelligence capabilities to the phone's photo processing.

The cameras are also slightly better.

The Oppo is reported to have a 50MP main camera, with 50MP ultra-wide and 13MP third camera, edging the OnePlus's 48MP, 50MP and 8MP combination.

Just last month the Chinese tech company unveiled its new foldable phone that's now on sale in China.

The Oppo Find N was revealed during the company's 'Inno Day', but the company hasn't yet said when it will be available in New Zealand.

When it is launched here, it'll join Samsung's Fold3 and Flip3's as foldable phones in the local marketplace, with others like Xiaomi’s Mi MIX Fold and Huawei's Mate X2 available via parallel import.
