Oppo announces Find X2 Pro: 120Hz display, 10x hybrid zoom, 5G, much more
Two years later, the Oppo Find X2 series is here and it introduces some big upgrades designed to make the smartphone more appealing to both tech fans and mainstream consumers.
The 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED displays are great
The display was the original model’s most important feature and that continues to be the case with the Oppo Find X2 series. Both smartphones are equipped with a massive 6.7-inch curved-edge AMOLED display that boasts a 3K (3168 x 1440p) resolution and a super smooth 120Hz refresh rate.
Oppo is keen to ensure the Find X2 series display offers the best possible viewing experience in all scenarios. That's why each panel boasts professional color calibration that enables more than one billion color variations on the display, 64 times more than rival flagships.
The displays reach a maximum brightness of 500 nits as standard, but under strong light and while viewing HDR video this figure can jump to 800 nits and 1,200 nits respectively. Users of the Oppo Find X2 Pro also benefit from a 240Hz touch sampling rate too, which helps drastically improve picture smoothness and responsiveness.
The display's hardware setup is completely by Oppo's custom O2 Ultra Vision Engine with a built-in independent display chip to enhance video quality performance. It's accompanied by HDR video enhancement and support for Motion Clear, which increases the frame of online video and sports broadcasts with frame rates below 30fps to 60fps or even 120fps in some circumstances.
Other display related features include an in-screen fingerprint scanner and an AI-adaptive Eye Protection System that automatically adjusts screen temperature and brightness.
Incredible zoom capabilities on the Oppo Find X2 Pro
Oppo made a name for itself in the camera department last year with the impressive Reno 10x Zoom. The Oppo Find X2 Pro builds upon these foundations with a second-generation 48-megapixel periscope camera on the rear.
The lens itself supports 5x optical zoom but Oppo's software combined with digital cropping enables high-quality 10x hybrid zoom. If that still isn't enough, the Find X2 Pro camera app will also enable 60x digital zoom, which is better than the Huawei P30 Pro's 50x option but not quite as impressive as Samsung's 100x offering.
Accompanying the above shooter is a customized 48-megapixel main camera that offers the largest sensor size among 48-megapixel mobile camera sensors in the industry. It's combined with dual native ISO technology and an f/1.7 aperture to deliver improved low-light photos.
The Oppo Find X2 Pro's main shooter is also the first in a smartphone to support All Pixel Omni-directional PDAF, which brings 100% pixel focusing and omnidirectional focusing to the tablet. Last on the list of cameras is a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120º field-of-view.
Oppo says that its brand new OIS driver chip combined with several algorithms ensures the consistency of color and white balance when switching between cameras. The company's Ultra Night Mode, on the other hand, works with all three shooters.
As for the regular Oppo Find X2, it removes the All Pixel Omni-directional PDAF from the 48-megapixel main shooter and downgrades the resolution of the ultra-wide-angle camera to 12-megapixels. The periscope offering, on the other hand, is replaced with a much more traditional 3x telephoto lens.
Both smartphones feature 32-megapixel selfie sensors up front that sit inside a punch hole rather than a pop-up camera module.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and 5G network support
Both the Oppo Find X2 and Oppo Find X2 Pro are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset and the Snapdragon X55 modem, the latter of which enables support for 5G networks as standard on both devices.
Oppo has included a generous 12GB of RAM inside both flagships as standard. The regular Find X2 ships with 256GB of non-expandable storage and the Pro-branded variant ups this to a whopping 512GB.
Like any other premium smartphone this year, the Oppo Find X2 series ships with Android 10 straight out of the box which, in this particular case, is coupled with the custom ColorOS 7.1 overlay. The latter includes specially adapted Dark Mode to the top 200 popular third party apps that can improve battery life by up to 38%.
Speaking of battery life, the Oppo Find X2 incorporates a 4,200mAh battery and the Find X2 Pro brings a 4,260mAh cell to the table. Both of these support Oppo's incredible 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging technology that can fully charge the Find X2 Pro in just 38 minutes, making it the fastest technology on the market.
Oppo Find X2 series pricing and release date
The Oppo Find X2 and Find X2 Pro will be available to purchase in early May across Europe for €999 and €1,199 respectively.
The Oppo Find X2 with a 12/256GB configuration will be available in Black Ceramic and Ocean. The Oppo Find X2 Pro with a 12/512GB configuration, on the other hand, is going to be sold in Orange Vegan Leather and Black Ceramic.
