One Oppo flagship will use a Snapdragon 870, an overclocked 865, the Find X3 is getting the S875

Peter, 23 November 2020

The Oppo Reno5 series is rumored to use three chipsets – a Snapdragon 765G, a Dimensity 1000 and a Snapdragon 865. This info comes from leakster Digital Chat Station who also says that one upcoming Oppo phone will use the Snapdragon 870. The leakster now has more info about that chip, but the identity of the phone it will power is still a bit of a mystery.

The Snapdragon 870 will be an overclocked 865. The prime core will be clocked at 3.20 GHz. For comparison, it runs at 3.09 GHz on the S865+ and 2.84 GHz on the original version of the chip.

The Adreno 650 GPU is getting a more significant clock boost to 905 MHz, up from 645 MHz on the Plus and 587 MHz on the original 865. With that, Snapdragon 870’s GPU score in the AnTuTu benchmark will go up by 70,000 points on top of the 240,000 or so points that the current 865 incarnations achieve.

The Oppo Reno5 5G went through TENAA, revealing that it has a 6.43” OLED display, 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 megapixel camera setup and a 4,300 mAh battery with 65W charging. It and the rest of the Reno5 series should be unveiled in May.

So, will the S870-powered phone be an Oppo Reno5 Pro+ or a similarly named premium version? Perhaps, but there is another option.

Oppo will be using the new Snapdragon 875 too, though that is most likely reserved for the Find X3 Pro flagship. This model will have a 1440p+ display with very high refresh rate and steeply-curved sides. Perhaps even an under-display camera.

According to DCS, the Find X3 Pro will feature a dual camera setup using Sony’s IMX700-series sensors. The pair will include an ultra wide-angle camera with a high resolution. The display and camera will use Oppo’s new Full-path Color Management System.

Anyway, the X3 Pro will not be alone, there is a vanilla Find X3 on the way as well. This version may use the Snapdragon 870 chip, but there’s no confirmation of that yet.
