(Pocket-lint) - Oppo announced its Find X5 series on 24 February with three models, comprising the Find X5 Lite, Find X5 and Find X5 Pro.

While the Find X5 and Find X5 Pro share similarities, including a unique camera bump, the Find X5 Lite is  different in terms of design. There are also differences in terms of specifications. 

Here is how the Oppo Find X5 series compares.

The Oppo Find X5 Pro has a ceramic rear, while the Find X5 has a glass rear, but both have the same camera housing in the top left corner. Rather than a standard square or rectangular camera housing, the Find X5 and X5 Pro both have an angled bottom, differentiating them from the norm. 

The two devices also sport Hasselblad branding, and they have a curved display with a hole-punch camera in the top left. 

The Find X5 Lite meanwhile, comes with a punch hole camera in the top left corner too, though the display is flat. It also has a more standard rectangle camera housing but like the X5, it has a glass rear.

All three devices have in-display fingerprint sensors. The Find X5 Pro has IP68 water and dust resistance and the Find X5 has IP54, but the X5 Lite has no official rating.

The X5 Pro has a 50-megapixel main sensor with a f/1.7 aperture, 5-axis OIS and what Oppo calls a G+P lens. There's also a 50-megapixel ultra wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a freeform lens. The third lens is a 13-megapixel telelphoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and 2x optical zoom. There's also a 13-channel spectral sensor.

Conclusion

The Oppo Find X5 and Find X5 Pro are similar both in terms of design and specifications. The Find X5 Pro offers a slightly larger battery, more RAM and a newer processor, as well as a larger and higher resolution display. It also has some specific camera differences to the X5.

The Find X5 might miss out on a few of the extra camera features the Pro offers, though it still has a great offering on paper and that unique camera housing design and the super speedy charging capabilities. 

The Oppo Find X5 Lite meanwhile, comes with a more standard design and a reduction in specifications, including processor and camera, falling closer in line with the OnePlus Nord CE 2. If you want the best, the Find X5 Pro is the model that wins on paper, but if you want a good compromise of features and value, it looks like the Find X5 could be the model to pick.
