Oppo details what makes the Find X5 Pro’s display special

A phone’s screen is incredibly important because it’s your main point of interaction with it and all of its innards. Your device may have the best chipset and the best cameras, but if the screen isn’t very good, you’ll definitely notice – after all, you’re looking at it every time you use your phone.

There are currently two main display technologies on the market, as you may know, and IPS panels have lost traction in favor of OLEDs, especially at the top. But not all OLEDs are the same – yes, they all have ink blacks thanks to the way the pixels work, but other than that, one OLED is not necessarily equal in quality to the other.

Oppo knows this, of course, which is why it has chosen to equip its latest flagship smartphone, the Find X5 Pro, with a high-quality OLED panel, very fitting for its still affordable price. We have the numbers on our spec pages, but they only tell half the story – of course, this is a 120Hz panel with a resolution of 1440×3216, so it has the most conventional refresh rate and one of the highest resolutions on the market.

And yes, you may have heard of LTPO2 and might have an idea that it’s about dynamically varying the refresh rate, but to what extent? Likewise, what’s with the fact that this panel can show 1 billion colors? How does this affect your everyday experience of using the Find X5 Pro? We were curious and luckily Oppo provided us with some answers.

Going beyond the mere number, 1 billion colors means the Find X5 Pro can show naturally rendered skin tones, undiluted by hues that make people look unreal. But that’s not all – your perception of color changes based on the color temperature and intensity of ambient lighting around you. So the Find X5 Pro automatically changes its color reproduction to match small changes in ambient light, while adapting the color matrix used to match the content.

The panel is capable of displaying 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, which is significantly wider than the previous standard, sRGB. Careful calibration ensures that the target is hit very accurately, as our lab tests can confirm. The Find X5 Pro has multipoint color calibration, so its display isn’t made to look its best at just a specific brightness level, but can adapt to all conditions and still deliver exceptional quality.

Speaking of brightness, there’s a lot of that on offer too, as I was able to test it in real-world conditions during a trip to Paris last month. It may “only” peak at 1,300 nits, but that’s still unmatched by most phones ever produced, and it’s also enough to make the screen visible even on the sunniest of days.

On the other end of the spectrum, in a dark room at night, you want your phone screen to be as dark as possible so it’s not painful to look at. This screen drops to 20 nits, which allows comfortable reading or video viewing even in total darkness without any burning sensation in the eyes. On top of all that is the blue light filter, which works well to suppress cold, strong light and give you a warmer tone that doesn’t affect your sleep.

Auto-brightness has 8192 levels to go through, which practically means you’ll never feel like it bounces too far in either direction – the number of levels allows for a lot of fine tuning. The panel is adjusted to match the way our eyes perceive light, which is logarithmic – in a dark room, any very small change is perceived as huge, while outdoors on a sunny, sunny day, much larger jumps aren’t even registered.

There are 12 scaling modes for changing brightness, each of which changes the rate at which screen power changes depending on the current level. The end result of all this science packed into the screen is that you’ll always find it adapts smoothly to its surroundings, never offending you by being too bright or too dark when it shouldn’t.

Now let’s dive into this LTPO2 technology. The 120 Hz dynamic refresh rate can drop to 1 Hz for static content, use 60 Hz for apps that specifically want that refresh rate, and go all the way to the full 120 Hz for ultra-smooth scrolling whenever possible.

Since it’s not always stuck at 120Hz, you’re not drawing on the associated power when you don’t need it – and that, paired with the 5,000mAh cell, makes for very good battery life. And without compromising on perceived smoothness, for even with all that power savings, the Find X5 Pro remains one of the smoothest-feeling smartphones of the year. All that refresh rate change happening in the background isn’t something you’ll notice.

This is, unsurprisingly, the best screen Oppo has ever had on a phone, and it also has one of the most adaptable refresh rates on the market right now. It also supports HDR10+ as well as HDR upscaling for non-HDR content if you like that. And on top of it sits a sheet of Gorilla Glass Victus, the toughest screen glass available to Android device manufacturers, protecting the smoothly curved screen from drops and scratches.
