One of the bright sides of sad situations such as event cancellations like MWC, is that vendors don't have to compete for attention against other vendors announcements within a short timeframe, instead choosing their own launch dates and events. Last week Oppo did exactly this, having unveiled its new top-of-the-range handsets: the Find X2 and the Find X2 Pro. Both models rely on the latest Snapdragon 865 platform from Qualcomm, and come with support for 5G connectivity, with the Pro model also sporting the company’s signature periscope camera that supports 5X optical zoom and ability to shoot 12 MP RAW images.

As expected for this year’s flagship smartphones, the Oppo Find X2 series uses the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC that is paired with 8 GB of DRAM, as well as 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Both the regular Find X2 and Find X2 Pro smartphones are equipped with a 6.7-inch FullVision AMOLED display with a 3168×1440 resolution, a corresponding 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 800 nits luminance (probably regular, not peak HDR), as well as a 120 Hz refresh rate, which should be the phone's key feature. The screen can display 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and is covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 6 for protection.

The top-of-the-range Oppo Find X2 Pro handset is equipped with a triple-module camera setup that features Sony’s new IMX689 48 MP RGB sensor as the main unit, using Sony’s IMX586 48 MP as the ultrawide sensor, and a periscope telephoto camera that features a 5x optical zoom (10x hybrid zoom, 60x digital zoom) that is powered by a 13 MP sensor.

Courtesy to the complex triple-module camera, the device can shoot pictures in 12 MP RAW format that allows to edit images heavily using appropriate software on the PC. The vanilla Find X2 uses Sony’s IMX586 48 MP RGB sensor, Sony’s IMX708 12 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 13 MP telephoto camera without periscope. Both phones have OIS on their primary and telephoto modules.

Imaging capabilities are not the only differences between the regular Find X2 and the Find X2 Pro smartphones. Without any doubts, both are premium handsets, both use aluminum frames, and the former X2 comes in a ceramic or glass back, whereas the latter X2 Pro comes in ceramic or leather back, which is a quite rare feature.

Furthermore, while the vanilla version is IP54 splash proof, the Pro model is dust/water resistant (IP68-rated) and can survive for 30 minutes at a 1.5-meters depth. The devices are regular "plus-sized" with 74.4-74.5mm device widths, and weigh from 187 grams to 207 grams, depending on the exact SKU.

On the wireless connectivity side of matters, the Oppo Find X2 smartphones support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC. Meanwhile, the handsets lack headphone jacks, only having a USB 3.1 Type-C connector for connectivity and charging. Also, the phone has an under-display fingerprint reader.

    Lol at the price, you're not samsung oppo. Reply

    I suspect Qualcomm is raising prices every year due to the lack of good competition on Android, so if you want 865, you will have to pay this.

    Or just switch to Apple for much better overall performance, support and longer update cycle.

    I hate the lacking of files folders in ios. Also iPhone bluetooth lacks LDAC. Two huge omissions. Reply

    It has files folders ever since iOS 13. Reply

    I'll get to using it as soon as I can put icons where I want and I can have a date time widget on my home screen, and along with that if they can have an icon to show that my phone is in DND or silent mode. And no, flipping the phone to check that button thing on the side is not a solution. And all this, without have to jailbreak. Reply

    They're making leather out of vegans now? Reply

    Just wait until the vegans find out that its actually *gasp* PLASTIC. Reply

    Exactly. Vegan textiles are a really bad idea. Reply

    The price is ridiculous, we don't pay the Apple of Samsung tax anymore, but the moron tax. People should stop buying these devices, they hardly offer any tangible improvements (most come with compromises, lack of headphone jack, notches or holes, too large...). Reply

    Well it was time for a recession. Let's see them continue $1000 phones when everyone is returning everything they bought in the last month looking for cash, because sane people won't be selling stocks for the next year. 30 percent drops are locked in. Reply
