Meet Oppo Find X2: the Ultimate Flagship

By Gizmodo UK on at

It’s that time again: your contract’s almost up, your old phone can’t keep its eyes open, and you’re ready for something all-round better in every way.

Welcome to the Oppo Find X2 Series, designed to tick all your ‘dream phone’ boxes, plus a few you hadn’t even thought of yet.

0-40% in ten minutes

Oppo has really gone to town on the specs of this flagship range – especially the top-end Find X2 Pro, which has the kind of legendary stamina we’ve been dreaming about for years.

That’s because it comes packed with two 2130mAh power cells connected in series, adding up to a whopping total battery capacity of 4260mAh.

Add to that the 64W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charging, and anxious battery-checking becomes a thing of the past.

Comparing SuperVOOC to normal phone charging is like comparing a racecar to a family saloon. It can take the OPPO Find X2 Pro from empty to 40% in just 10 minutes, and all the way to full in just 38. No more charging overnight to get back to 100% – in under forty minutes, it’ll likely be finished before your Netflix show.

In fact, you might as well watch the show on the phone, because with the TÜV Rheinland Certified Safe Fast-Charge System, it’s totally safe to use the phone during fast charging despite the ridiculous amount of power pumping into it.

One billion colours

Some phones make you choose between great battery life and a stunning screen, because powering all those pixels takes a lot of juice. But the OPPO Find X2 series has been precision engineered to maximise both, meaning you get the endless battery and the beautiful screen.

How beautiful are we talking? The Find X2 and Find X2 Pro both offer 6.7 inches of pure QHD+ brilliance: a true billion-colour display delivering 10-bit colour – that’s 64 times higher than many phone screens – and HDR10+ certification.

Oppo have given their refresh rates an overhaul too, up from 60Hz to an incredible 120Hz, and boosted the touch sampling rate to a hyper-responsive 240Hz. The overall effect is a vibrant, crystal-clear and super-bright panel with buttery-smooth transitions, ideal for gaming and streaming alike.

The complete package

Besides that superb screen and crazy stamina, the Find X2 Pro has packed in a whole lot of other features worth a look.

There’s the super-premium handset design, rendered in your choice of laser-cut high-density ceramic or microfibre vegan leather. There’s the Snapdragon 865 octa-core chipset. There’s the IP68 rating, protecting your new phone from splashes, spills and outdoor adventures. And then there’s the cameras.

Both Find X2 handsets offer a three-camera setup based around a 48MP wide-angle main lens (Sony IMX586 on the Find X2, Sony IMX689 on the Find X2 Pro) for stunning captures in all light environments. But the Pro model takes it even further, with a second 48MP ultra-wide angle lens plus a 13MP periscope telephoto lens to ensure you never miss a shot. Add in dual OIS, true 12-bit capture and Oppo’s uniquely innovative All-Pixel Omnidirectional PDAF and you’ve got pin-sharp, colour-true images even in the most challenging conditions.
