One of the most beautiful, most eye-catchy stand-out phone of 2018 was the OPPO Find X. In my review I called it a statement phone: made as proof of OPPO’s advancements in design, and in production, but not as a device for people to actually buy. Though my review wasn’t taken positively both by the company and a couple of readers, it was a fact given the price point of the device, the status of the company then, and the essential things the device lacked.
Well, the OPPO Find X2 is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2020. And with such news, given it has been two years, there will be lots of expectations. So much that I hope whatever they’ve been working on all this while, actually pays off.
The device is confirmed to come with the latest most powerful chip – the Snapdragon 865, and rumored to feature the all new Sony sensor that comes with a new dual-pixel technology that should help with achieving high-speed focus, high-resolution, high-sensitivity, and high dynamic range.
OPPO has said they’ll be going all in on the screen of the Find X2. This is where there’ll be major emphasis. So we should expect a higher res display with a higher refresh rate. I hope they go with 120Hz.
Given it’ll be the company’s most premium phone of 2020, we should also expect more of OPPO’s technology on the device. Perhaps insane fast charging speeds, and a new way to hide the camera. Perhaps this will be the company’s first phone with an under-the-screen selfie camera.
I hope OPPO will get it right this time round in terms of the asking price versus the specs and features. I want to see fast wireless charging, and a proper IP rating. But I also don’t want it to lose that wow factor of the original Find X.
