OPPO’S flagship Find X series becomes OPPO Find X2 in Q1, 2020. It will be one of the first smartphones to use the new Qualcomm 865 flagship System on a Chip and its 5G X55 modem.

Now the OPPO Find X2 is OPPO’s take on what a flagship should be, and from initial specifications, it meets or exceeds every paradigm. It is is also the world’s most beautiful smartphone – at least the Find X was.

OPPO Find X2 (Find series) sits above the top-rated OPPO Reno series that stretch from its Gen 1 Reno 5G and 10x lossless models to its mid-range Reno Z that was Australia’s most popular mid-range device to its Gen 2 Reno2 Z for about $100 more.

OPPO Australia Managing Director, Michael Tran, welcomed the news, saying consumers can expect big things from the OPPO in 2020.

“2020 is gearing up to be an exciting year for OPPO. Not only are we set to expand our portfolio of smart devices with products such as smart headphones and smartwatches, we will also be launching our next-generation flagship smartphone.”.

Screen

A beautiful 100% 6.5-inch AMOLED screen and no O-hole. How do they do it?

OPPO has been developing an under-glass selfie camera. At the precise time the OLED screen clears to reveal it. Add to that under-glass fingerprint and you have a 3D curved edge-to-edge and full top-to-bottom screen. At worst it will be a pop-up to preserve the 100% screen.

OPPO tend to use 2340 x 1080 res screens for better battery life, but we would not be surprised to see a [email protected], 100% DCI-P3, Dolby Vision screen. It will be 21:9 (tall and thin).

Processor – Qualcomm SD865

2.84 GHz, single-core, Kryo 585 + 2.42 GHz, Tri-core, Kryo 585 + 1.8 GHz, Quad-core, Kryo 585

RAM 12GB and Storage 256GB. We are not sure about a micro-SD.

Modem – Qualcomm X55 for Australia’s sub<6Ghz 5G, dual-band supporting Optus and Telstra. It will have dual active sim and loads of world LTE bands as flagships should.

Camera

We know OPPO has been working with Sony on a custom-made 2×2 On-chip Lens array with omnidirectional phase detection auto-focus – faster focus and motion tracking. We suspect it will do [email protected] as well as fully OIS and EIS stabilisation for 4K.

Initial rumours are a rear tri camera with 16MP (64MP binned) and 24MP (10X optical zoom). Selfie is 25MP (unusual).

These specs sound way to low given we know OPPO is planning to use the 108MP (binned) on other devices. Whatever it is – you can be sure OPPO knows cameras.

Battery

4,000mAh with OPPO Super VOOC 65W fast charge.
