Chinese tech giant Oppo has been making strides in its smartphones as of late. 2019’s Reno and Reno 2 have certainly upped the ante for the mid-range tier, offering some really crisp visuals via a pop-up camera. This year, it aims to take its flagship Find X series to greater heights with the Oppo Find X2 series. The series comes in two models: the Find X2 and the Find X2 Pro.
What’s most striking about the Find X2 smartphones is that they come with innate 120Hz QHD+ AMOLED screens, which is capable of displaying over one billion variations of colours, which make for some of the most stunning visuals on a mobile screen. Native 120Hz screens are set to be the norm in the smartphone market these days, and the Find X2 seems to be among the first to have that as a base option, with many competitors still only using it as an optional feature.
The series is also one of the first few smartphones in the world to run on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, the most powerful in the line to date. The Find X2 series is also Oppo’s latest line of 5G-capable flagship smartphones, which means wireless connectivity is as fast as it can get. And for Singaporeans who want an alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Find X2 series will natively support Singapore’s 5G network fully as well.
But what takes the cake for the Find X2 series is its image-capturing capabilities, thanks to the new Ultra Vision Camera System, which allows for high-quality photography in virtually any setting. The Find X2 Pro, in particular, gets the full suite of the Ultra Vision Camera System on its triple-lens setup, as it boasts an All Pixel Omni-directional PDAF, which is capable of achieving 100% pixel focusing and omnidirectional focusing for what the company aims to be the smoothest image-capturing experience yet.
Moreover, the Find X2 Pro houses an Ultra-Resolution algorithm, which ensure colours, contrast and white balance are as consistent as they can get when switching between lenses. Speaking of which, the Find X2 Pro comes with a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, as well as up to 10x hybrid zoom.
And we’re not done yet with the Find X2 Pro’s image-taking capabilities. Next up is Ultra Night Mode, which seems to be Oppo’s answer to the superb low-light capabilities of the likes of the Huawei P30 Pro and Google Pixel 4. Ultra Night Mode also benefits from the Ultra-Resolution algorithm, and covers all focal lengths with a maximum zoom of up to 60x, for some really clean, hassle-free night shots.
Video recording is also pretty solid on the Find X2 Pro, as it comes with Ultra Steady Video Pro, based on the 48MP wide-angle lens for some really convenient shooting, even without the aid of a gimbal. It supports 4K 60fps video, as well as 10-bit video recording, pixel-level real-time grading exposure and video colour calibration, for really seamless video processing without having to do so on a PC.
Battery-wise, the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro come with 4,200mAh and 4,260mAh batteries respectively, which should last users up to about a day and a half of use. They both support Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC fast charge, one of the fastest fast charging technologies out there currently.
Release of the Oppo Find X2 series in Singapore will be announced at a later date.
