Oppo will partner with Hasselblad for the camera system on the Find X5 series
Rumors and leaks have been giving us details about what to expect from the upcoming Oppo Find X5 series, but now, there is some official information from the company itself. 9to5Google reports that Oppo has now announced its partnership with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad for Oppo’s flagship Find series.
Oppo’s partnership with Hasselblad is now official
Just as OnePlus, Oppo flagship phones are now going to come with Hasselblad-powered tuning and camera performance improvements. The upcoming Oppo Find X5 series, as well as future Find X series of phones will be benefiting from the Swedish camera maker’s features and improvements. Oppo has shared the news in a dedicated blog post, committing to a three-year partnership with the Swedish company in order to “co-develop industry-leading camera technologies for Oppo’s flagship Find series.” The same partnership was announced last year with the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro.
This information shouldn’t come as a surprise as earlier leaked images of the Find X5 Pro already showed us that the phone might come with Hasselblad branding on its camera, but now, the info has officially been confirmed.
So far, Oppo has not specified what we could expect from this partnership for the Find X5 series. On the other hand, the company did confirm that just like OnePlus’ and Hasselblad partnership, we can expect to see Natural Color Calibration with Hasselblad. This feature allows for a more natural and realistic skin tone for portrait photography shots.
As many of you may probably know, Oppo and OnePlus have been integrated and their research and development resources have been combined. Now, Oppo says that following the imaging advances that followed the partnership between OnePlus and Hasselblad, the company is going to expand it to the Oppo brand as well.
“Following the success of OnePlus and Hasselblad’s collaboration in the past year, we are very pleased to see the partnership enter a new stage of development, giving more users around the world a chance to enjoy the legendary Hasselblad mobile imaging experience,” said Pete Lau, Chief Product Officer. He also underlined that the performance of the camera, and more specifically the colors it produces has always been a focus for Oppo, as well as a part of Hasselblad’s DNA.
