A whole year has already passed since the company OPPO introduced its flagship smartphone called Find X. Literally today, the manufacturer introduced the second generation of the smartphone. Therefore, I will tell you my first impression of the super flagship OPPO Find X2 in 2020.
If last year the company made its flagship very unique. For example, OPPO Find X had a screen without any notches, since the front and dual main cameras left the case. It was a fantastic smartphone through which it was impossible to pass by.
Much to the disappointment, the OPPO decided to go the other way and not focus on a design very much. They put a lot of emphasis on on-camera performance and optimization.
The official sale of the smartphone will begin on March 19 of this year. In addition, now you can pre-order a smartphone on the official OPPO website. The price tag is not small and is about $1000.
What can surprise the new flagship? The OPPO Find X2 was equipped with a curved large 6.7 inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The latest development from Qualcomm is the Snapdragon 865 chip. The super camera, fast charging at 65 watts and good battery life are typical of the new flagship.
Will the new flagship OPPO Find X2 proves to other competitors its existence, let’s find out in the review.

OPPO Find X2: Unboxing
The flagship OPPO Find X2 comes in a familiar rectangular box of blue color. On the front, you can see the name of the model, company and the 5G logo.
The backside of the box received a sticker with basic technical specifications. For example, here you can see the memory version and in our case, it is 12/256 GB. Although it is the only configuration, it is not possible to buy more memory or less.
Inside the box, I found the smartphone itself, a protective transparent silicone case, headphones, a 65 W adapter and a Type-C cable. If you want to charge as fast as possible, you will need to use the adapter and cable that came with the kit.
Given its cost, the equipment looks solid, but I have a comment on the transparent case, which does not look in its own class.
OPPO Find X2: Design
According to my assumptions, OPPO did not invent the new wheel but took models from existing brand manufacturers like Samsung, , and others.
For example, on the front part in the upper left corner of the screen, you can see a hole-punch for the front camera. It is exactly the same as on the flagship Xiaomi model – Mi 10 Pro. The screen also has curved edges and large size of 6.7 inches.
Although the new flagship OPPO Find X2 uses a much more interesting screen than Xiaomi. For example, the device uses an AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels and a pixel density of 513 ppi.
Other features of the screen include – this is a constant operation with a frequency of 120 Hz. Also present are HDR10 and DCI-P3 100% technology. The declared brightness was about 800 nits, which is pretty good.
In general, the colors and contrast, as well as working with a refresh rate of 120 Hz frames, simply surprised me. Indeed, it is pleasant to use a smartphone and your eyes never get tired.
I almost forgot about the fingerprint scanner, it is located on the screen and works very quickly and quickly.
On the back of the case, you can see three sensors of the main camera, instead of all of the four used to. Also here is an LED flash and company logo.
The manufacturer introduced the flagship OPPO Find X2 in two colors – a black ceramic case and a blue glass case. In the latter case, a protective glass is used – Gorilla Glass 6. The frame is made of aluminum.
The smartphone has a very pleasant feeling in the hand, but managing such a bulky screen with one hand will be problematic. The build quality without any complaints and each connection are perfect.
At the bottom got holes for the microphone and speaker, Type-C port and a dual-slot for dual SIM cards. Unfortunately, the smartphone does not support memory cards, which is a big minus.
At the top has only holes for the noise-canceling microphone. The control keys are, on the left side – the volume rocker, and on the right – the power button.
I would also like to say that Find X2 received stereo speakers that work at a high level. The high-quality sound is heard, the bass is present and the sound volume is high.
OPPO Find X2: Performance and Software
Naturally, the flagship smartphone OPPO Find X2 received the latest and most powerful processor from Qualcomm, namely the Snapdragon 865. it is built on 7-nanometer technology. I don’t see the point of telling more about it since it is used in all the latest flagships of 2020.
The same goes for the GPU – this is the Adreno 650. The most modern and demanding games will work on ultra-high graphics without any problems. I played games for several hours and did not find overheating at all, which is very good.
I have no idea why the smartphone needs 12GB of RAM. So for what purpose do you need to use so much RAM? For me, this remains a difficult question. But the internal memory only 256 GB and more or less have no choice. With the choice of configurations, OPPO disappointed me, but at least it pleases that the memory uses UFS 3.0.
The software received the latest version of Android 10. The user interface is ColorOS 7.1 and I liked it.
Functionality, various chips, and many useful features offers a new generation of ColorOS. If you previously used this interface, then you will not have any problems using the new one. Nimble work and good multitasking are the main parameters that the new OPPO Find X2 flagship has.
Also, the smartphone stands out for the sixth generation of Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, the presence of NFC, 5G network and Bluetooth with version 5.1. I want to warn you that the sixth generation of Wi-Fi works with a sixth-generation router.
OPPO Find X2: Camera
The camera is a strong point for OPPO Find X2, as the results of the shots are very high and similar to the flagship Xiaomi Mi 10.
The device uses a 48-megapixel module with an f/1.7 aperture with laser autofocus and optical stabilization.
The second module received a 13-megapixel resolution with f/2.4 aperture for telephoto shots. The second sensor also has a 5x hybrid and 20x digital zoom.
The third module is a 12-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture. This Sony IMX708 sensor is used for cinematic wide-angle shooting at 120 degrees.
The front camera, which is located in the circular cutout of the screen, received a 32-megapixel resolution with f/2.4 aperture.
If you look at the DXOMARK test results, then the OPPO Find X2 Pro model received an identical score, like the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. Although the megapixel main camera is 48MP, and Xiaomi has 108MP.
Indeed, the quality of the photos is high. Even at night, the photos are clear and not blurred. Below you can see an album of sample photos.
OPPO Find X2: Battery
Each of us can remember that a couple of years ago the flagships had a battery capacity of up to 3500 mAh. Now the world has changed a lot and offers almost one and a half times more battery capacity. Thus, the OPPO Find X2 received a 4200 mAh battery that can last a day and a half.
The charging time from 0 to 100% will take up to 40 minutes, thanks to a fast power adapter with a power of 65 watts. In 15 minutes you can charge your smartphone up to 60% and the result is very fast.
OPPO Find X2: Conclusion and Reviews
The first acquaintance with the new flagship OPPO Find X2 brought me a lot of positive emotions.
The first smartphone is very well built, has premium materials and a high-quality screen with a frequency of 120 Hz. The high performance and high-quality optimization of the software, also the camera and battery life – at a decent level for its class.
Of the minuses, I can note – only one available memory configuration. I did not find other major flaws.
OPPO Find X2: Price and where to buy cheaper?
Now you can pre-order a smartphone on the official website of OPPO, but the price tag is not the smallest – about $1000.
Officially, the flagship will go on sale from March 19 and there is not much to wait.
