Week 8 in review: India gets iQOO 9 series, Find X5 Pro official

As the final week before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona ends, let’s take a look at the biggest stories.

The Oppo Find X5 and X5 Pro became official. Both phones feature Oppo’s new 6nm MariSilicon X image processing chip and Hasselblad Natural Color Calibration. The Find X5 Pro has a 50MP 1/1.56″ main camera with a 3-axis sensor-shift and 2-axis lens stabilization, a 50MP ultrawide, and 13MP 2x tele. The Pro gets a Snadragragon 8 Gen 1 chip, while the X5 uses a Snapdragon 888.

The Oppo Find X5 is on sale from March 14, starting at €1,000 for the 8/256GB model. The X5 Pro’s sole 12GB of RAM and 256GB configuration is €1,300, on sale March 14.

The vivo iQOO 9, 9 Pro, and 9 SE debute in India too, starting at INR 43,000, INR 65,000 and INR 34,000, respectively. They’re all capable smartphones with the SE relying on a SD888, the 9 on a SD888+, and the Pro on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. Sales in India start on March 2.

A major leak revealed that the Poco X4 Pro 5G will feature a Snapdragon 695 chip and 108MP camera. The phone will be unveiled on February 28.

Finally, the OnePlus 10 Pro became available in White Extreme edition. The phone itself was featured in a durability test, which it didn’t survive, snapping in two during the bend test – ouch! That’s it for these past seven days, see you next week with the wrap up of the MWC week!
