Oppo has unveiled its latest successor of the OPPO Find X smartphone, the refresh to it has been long due ever since its launch in 2018. However, Oppo took two years and had now come up with its next iteration in not one but two smartphones, making it a new Find X2 series. Oppo had unveiled the Oppo Find X2 and the much anticipated Oppo Find X2 Pro smartphone.
To put it out first Oppo hadn’t gone to motorized cameras here as the predecessor instead, chose to bring bigger displays along with the latest trends, yes, you guessed it right — the punch-hole displays. Nonetheless, Oppo has carry forwarded the native Find X design aesthetic like the full screen almost bezel-less display, but with several enhancements under the hood.
As mentioned, Oppo had launched two Find X phones — the Find X2 and the Find X2 Pro. While both the devices appear precisely identical they differ in some regions. So, let’s find out. Since there aren’t that many differences between both the devices, let start with what are things that are common between them. Let’s dig in.
Design & Display
The OPPO Find X2 series phones look like identical twins sharing same design aesthetic and those new displays as well. Both the phones come with a large 6.7-inches OLED QHD+ display that has some smooth curved edges flowing back on the sides making it look bezel-less. This OLED QHD+ display now has refresh rates of up to 120Hz and the larger display achieves a screen to body ratio of 93.1%. In addition to the 120Hz display, the OPPO Find X2 phones feature 240Hz touch sampling rates as well. These curved displays are further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
As suggested, the smoother curved screens have further flowed back to a tactile textured back that claims to give users a better grip. Unlike, the predecessor, the OPPO Find X2 series phone features rear cameras on the top left on the back, which is claimed to be protected by Black Ceramic material, which is further stated to be laser-engraved as well. In terms of colour variants, these premium looking Find X2 comes in Black Ceramic and Ocean Blue and the big brother Find X2 Pro is featured Black Ceramic and a stunning new Orange (Vegan Leather) colour variant, which in a way reminds us of the Google Pixel 4 ‘Just Orange’ colour variant.
