More apparent details and images of Oppo's new flagship phone have leaked, seemingly confirming a previously deleted tweet about the name and specifications of the device.

The Chinese mobile phone manufacturer is one of the most popular brands in Aotearoa's smartphone market and the company is expected to reveal its new hardware later this month.

German website WinFuture has backed up previous rumours while providing more rumoured details about the device, including an update on its cameras.

The website also doubled down on a report the device would be known as the X5 Pro, a slight surprise given 2021's model was called the X3 Pro. There had been speculation that the number four was being avoided because it is associated with death in China, although it has been used by other Oppo phones.

As previously reported, the phone is said to have specifications similar to that of the OnePlus 10 Pro, which launched in China earlier this year. OnePlus is now a sub-brand of Oppo.

According to WinFuture, the camera system on the X5 Pro was developed with Swedish specialists Hasselblad and will use two Sony IMX766 sensors.

Unlike the 10 Pro, the X5 Pro is also said to feature Oppo's recently revealed MariSilicon X chip which allows neural processing. That would add artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to the phone's photo processing, including a "special night mode" to help with the 50 MP main camera, 50 MP wide angle and 13 MP telephone lens on the back.

A Sony IMS709 sensor will also apparently power the 32 MP front facing camera, according to the report.

The X5 Pro's display is said to be a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, offering a resolution of 3216x1440px and a 120Hz refresh rate, protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass Victus.

The website says, as expected, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor will power the phone, while Qualcomm's Adreno 730 GPU will bear the brunt of graphics processing.

The phone will reportedly have 12GB of LPDDR5X memory, with 256 GB of storage. This won't be expandable, at least in Europe, according to WinFuture.

Other functionality on the phone is said to include an under-display fingerprint sensor and a large 5000mAh battery offering 80W fast charging and wireless charging.

Video recording of 4K at 60fps will also be on offer, the website said, while a stereo sound system will be boosted by Dolby Atmos capable speakers.

The software is said to be Oppo's ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12.

Samsung, another of New Zealand's most popular mobile phone brands, will reveal its new range of devices at its Galaxy Unpacked event later this week.
