OPPO has announced that it will fully reveal its next flagship smartphone, OPPO Find X2, through a live streaming event on March 6. The phone was originally scheduled for MWC 2020, but the event has since been canceled.
As the name indicates, Find X2 is the successor to OPPO Find X, which was released in 2018. At the time, the phone had some elements that distinguished it, such as a motorized pop-up module for both the rear cameras and the selfie shooter, a display with almost no frame and a gradient color design on the back.
As for what to expect from the Find X2, it is already official that it will package Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 5G chipset and OPPO is working with Sony to customize a camera sensor to use in the phone. OPPO Find X 2 will also be the first phone to have All Pixel Omni-Direction PDAF, offering better performance in terms of sensitivity to light and focus.
In addition, the screen is at the heart of Find X2, with OPPO emphasizing “resolution, screen refresh rate, color and high dynamic range”. OPPO Vice President and Global Marketing President, Brian Shen, has already made fun of it a phone coming soon, which will probably be the Find X2. If the previous tweets are indicative, FInd X 2 will package a refresh rate of 120Hz, touch sampling at 240Hz, QHD resolution, 1200 nits of peak brightness and conversion from SDR to HDR. It will also cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color space.
If you are interested in the next OPPO flagship, the event will be streamed live on YouTube on March 6 at 10:30 CET / 9:30 GMT. The Chinese version of the event will be hosted an hour earlier and will include OPPO Watch, which will not arrive on international markets, at least for now.
