The Find X5 Pro is OPPO's top-end flagship for 2022. It says a lot for its top-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (and Dimensity 9000) processors that the latest kind of first-party case for the device has an all-new cooling solution. Its build and materials are designed to manage the premium smartphone's temperature.

OPPO followed the Find X3 Pro of 2021 with the very similar-looking X5 Pro. Then again, the newer smartphone has moved on to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for most markets in which it is sold. It is like most of its contemporaries in that it comes packed with cooling materials and techniques for its powerful processor.

Even with these multi-layer thermal management systems, the potential for heat production from the latest top-end mobile chipsets is getting harder and harder to dismiss these days. This may have something to do with OPPO's announcement of the new Ice-Skin case made for the Find X5 Pro.

This accessory's pattern of thin, pinstripe-like fins make its compatible phone look much more like a gaming flagship when installed. It works by drawing moisture from the air around it via its integrated hydrogel, custom-developed as a result of research done at Wuhan University.

It is designed to release heat via evaporation, then absorb more moisture anew for an ideally ongoing cycle of cooling for the new flagship. OPPO claims that it can keep the phone cooler by up to 3°C. The OEM is currently bundling it with Find X5 Pro pre-orders (and those of its Dimensity Edition) via its Chinese web-store at present.
