Oppo just launched two new devices under its flagship Find series—the Find X2 and the Find X2 Pro. Supposedly scheduled to make its first official appearance in this year’s Mobile World Congress (which unfortunately got cancelled), it was launched through a global live stream instead.
Back in 2018, the first Find X made waves for its 6.4-inch, 1080 resolution OLED display with a 93.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. It also hid both its front and rear cameras with a motorized pop-up system to achieve the coveted all-screen view.
Fast-forward to present day, the Find X2 flaunts what Oppo calls an “ultra vision” screen. There are no motorized pop-up cameras this time around, but it features a flagship Sony sensor, more on it later.
Aesthetically, it has a punch hole display for its 32MP front camera and features three color options—one of which is incredibly reminiscent (if not the same) of the Mate 30 Pro 5G’s caseback. I’m not quite sure why orange vegan leather is a trend these days, but whatever the reason is, I say keep it coming.
Scoring an A+ rating by DisplayMate, the Find X2’s screen has a 120 Hz refresh rate and 240Hz high touch sampling rate on its QHD+ AMOLED display. It promises incredibly smooth graphics and rich colors thanks to its one billion true color replication capability. It also comes with features like Motion Clear and HDR video enhancement which can increase the frame rates of online video and sports broadcasts for a smoother playback and minimizes motion jitter and stepped contours.
A 120 Hz refresh rate display seems to have become a standard among the new flagships this year (such as Samsung’s S20 line) and I’m sure we’re going to be seeing more devices with this feature in the coming months for Oppo and other brands.
It is only fit for the Find series to hold Oppo’s best cameras to date. The Find X2 Pro is equipped with the flagship Sony IMX689 sensor and flaunts a triple camera set-up with a 48MP wide-angle lens + 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens + 13MP telephoto lens, with 10x hybrid zoom and up to 60x digital zoom. The brand akins its camera prowess to an entry-level DSLR and is the first smartphone to support and All Pixel Omni-directional PDAF, able to achieve 100% pixel focusing and omnidirectional focusing.
A step up the Reno’s video shooting capabilities, it can shoot seamless, steady video and can do it on ultra-wide angle, too. It can also shoot in 4K at 60fps as well as live HDR. It integrated 10bit video recording, enhancing the highlights and shadows in backlit scenes for a more life-like video.
Inside, the Find X2 line is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G paired with a whopping 12 GB RAM + 512 GB ROM (256 GB for the Find X2). It is 5G ready and supports 5G + 4G dual-receiver, dual-card, and dual-standby with a more stable network. The device is capable of freely
switching network systems according to the network conditions.
We have yet to confirm if the 5G variant of the Find X2 series will be released the Philippines but it is said to be launched in selected markets with commercially available 5G connectivity services.
Battery-wise, there’s not that much of a difference between both devices but the Find X2 Pro has a 4,260 mAh capacity while the Find X2 has a slightly smaller 4,200 mAh cell. It uses a 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charge, which Oppo claims can fully charge the Find X2 Pro in 38 minutes. It demonstrated this during the live stream, where a little battery icon sat ‘charging’ at the corner of the screen as the phone was launched and at the 38-minute mark, the fully charged Find X2 was brought on-stage.
The Find X2 line comes with Oppo’s newest OS to date, ColorOS 7.1 based on Android 10. Perhaps one feature that will stand out to everyone is its adaptation of dark mode to more than 200 third-party apps. The new OS also comes with tweaks in user interface, AI, and phone performance.
The Find X2 series is set to arrive early May and will retail at €1,199 (~P68,762) for the Find X2 Pro and €999 (~P57,292) for the Find X2. It will come in three color options: Ceramic Black, Ocean Glass (Find X2 only), and Orange Vegan Leather (Find X2 Pro only).
