Oppo is going after Samsung with the new Oppo Find X2 flagship
Chinese phone maker unveils first new phone in its premium Find X series after two years, introducing a 120Hz display to take on the Samsung Galaxy S20
It would be an understatement to say smartphone displays are important in 2020. Just think about the amount of time people spend each day scrolling through Instagram feeds, gunning down opponents in Fortnite, or binging Netflix shows.
Just like its biggest rivals this year, Oppo is introducing the best display it’s ever put on a smartphone with its latest flagship.
Oppo’s new phone also has a 240Hz touch sampling rate to match, which means it should respond to your swipes and taps faster than most smartphones on the market. And its maximum brightness of 1,200 nits is even brighter than the Samsung Galaxy S20 -- a feature that Oppo says should make the screen comfortable to look at in any environment. The 3168x1440-pixel resolution is on par with the S20.
The Find X2 Pro also allows users to shoot 4K 60fps video with live HDR.
As with last year’s Reno Ace flagship, the Find X2 series supports Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 flash charger -- one of the fastest on the market. Oppo says it can fully charge the Pro’s 4,260mAh battery in 38 minutes. It’s a pretty big battery -- but it doesn’t go as far as it used to given that the phone comes with 5G, like many flagships you’ll see this year.
The company also unveiled its first smartwatch in Friday’s streamed event. The Oppo Watch has built-in cellular connectivity and can run as long as 18 hours on a 15-minute charge, according to the company.
