What are the latest flagship phones from OPPO?
OPPO’s two flagship phones can be found in its Find X2 series.
Top of the range is the OPPO Find X2 Pro, a standout smartphone boasting an edge-to-edge 6.7-inch display, pro camera, ultra-steady video and 5G, all in one smooth package.
In fact, the camera on the OPPO Find X2 Pro is so good, National Geographic photographer and filmmaker Michaela Skovranova used it on a 10-day Antarctic expedition to make a documentary.
If you don’t need such a professional-level camera, the OPPO Find X2 Neo still delivers great shots, at a more mid-range price. It also offers a 90Hz curved screen and an ultra-slim 7.7mm design.
Differences between OPPO Find X2 Pro and Find X2 Neo
Before we dive into the features of the two phones let's take a quick look at the differences:
OPPO Find X2 Pro 5G
6.7 inch screen
OLED curved screen 3K QHD+ clarity
2 x 2130 mAh battery
Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 865
OPPO Find X2 Neo 5G
6.5 inch screen
AMOLED curved screen
4025 mAh battery
Qualcomm SDM 765G
Let's look at design features
The first thing you’ll notice about the Find X2 Pro is how good it feels in your hand. The smooth curves and silky feel are especially tantalising.
And you get to choose your preferred texture. The Find X2 Pro comes in high-density ceramic that’s laser cut and polished to a create a gleaming black surface.
Alternatively, if you’d rather a phone that’s softer to the touch, you could opt for the microfibre vegan leather finish. It’s an eco-friendly material and to add to the feel-good vibe, the colour is a standout, sunny orange.
If you like a slim design, you can’t go past the Find X2 Neo – it's one of the slimmest 5G phones on the market, measuring just 7.7mm.
It has the more traditional glass back and metal frame. Or so it appears. The Find X2 Neo features a unique visual effect where its metal features seem to change to glass in different lighting.
Both the Find X2 Pro and the Find X2 Neo have a similar form factor, with edge-to-edge punch hole display and camera that sits almost flush against the cover.
What about the all-important screen display?
The Find X2 Pro has a truly breathtaking screen display featuring:
- 6.7-inch OLED curved screen
- Smooth and responsive 120 Hz refresh rate
- 3K QHD+ clarity
- Billion-colour vibrancy
- Adaptive eye protection
The display is especially attractive to movie buffs and gamers. And the 5G capacity can add super-fast downloads and lag-defying responsiveness to the mix.
The Find X2 Neo is designed to reduce eye fatigue. It also features:
- 6.5-inch AMOLED screen
- Multi-touch screen
- 2400 x 1800px resolution
- Up to 90Hz refresh rate
- HD+ resolution
The high refresh rate gives you smoother visuals for gaming, videos or browsing.
Performance - what's under the hood?
Find X2 Pro
The OPPO Find X2 Pro offers super high performance thanks to its Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage
The Snapdragon chip makes for faster downloads. It’s increased power also gives the Find X2 Pro the capacity for higher resolution in its cameras and video. And it allows for what Snapdragon claims is ‘desktop-class gaming’.
Now consider the 512GB of internal storage. That’s more than some laptops and, depending on the resolution, it’s enough space for thousands of photos and hundreds of videos.
Find X2 Neo
The OPPO Find X2 Neo is no slacker in the performance department either. It's powered by a Snapdragon™ 765G, so you can expect a seamless response on even the most graphically demanding applications.
If you’re into gaming you’ll appreciate this phone. It offers near near-instant response, incredible audio and cinema-quality graphics, plus very long battery life for all-day play. The Find X2 Neo’s 5G connectivity also lets you play multi-player games.
There’s pretty good storage capacity too – 256GB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM.
Both phones have exceptionally good cameras. The OPPO Find X2 Pro is the better of the two, but you will pay more for it. So it's worth considering how you intend to use the camera.
Find X2 Pro
The camera in this phone is a high-performance, 3-in-1 sports camera that's good enough to shoot professional-quality photos and video in rugged outdoor environments.
Here are the specs:
- Two x 48MP wide-angle cameras
- Ultra steady video
- Ultra night mode
- 13MP periscope telephoto camera lens
- Front 32 MP selfie camera
Like Michaela Zovranova, you can take crisp and compelling shots in all conditions. The lenses work together to deliver a 10x hybrid zoom so you can be sure to get consistent colour balance and smoother zooming.
Find X2 Neo
If you don't need to film underwater in Antartica, but still want a great camera for more everyday photography, consider the Find X2 Neo.
The camera is judged to be one of the best in its price range. It has a good zoom and enough lenses to make it a versatile camera for shooting food, holiday snaps and selfies with rich colour and sharp detail.
The specs include:
- The 5x hybrid optical zoom
- 48MP main camera OIS
- 13 MP telephoto lens
- 8MP wide angle lens
What video smarts are on offer?
The Find X2 Pro’s stabilization algorithm gives you smooth video in the shakiest of conditions. Live HDR mode delivers true cinematic quality to your everyday videos – including 10-bit colour depth and billion colour display.
Michaela uses the Find X2 Pro to capture video that's as close to real-life as you can get - rich colour, sharp contrast, reduced motion blur and less lag packaged up in an immersive HDR10+ certified display.
"He’s collecting all the little rocks and creating a nest. So it’s nice to be able to stay back a little and zoom in."
The Find X2 Neo offers impressive video capabilities too - it lets you film flawlessly smooth video by using two different stabilisation functions. They activate automatically as soon as you turn on the camera. So you can get on with videoing what you love, whether it's extreme sports or a night out with friends.
Comparing battery life
With the Find X2 Pro, you won't have to worry about a low battery. It's powered by a 4260 mAh battery that's big enough to last you all day. And it recharges to 40% in just 10 minutes, or full charge in 38 minutes, with the 65W Super VOOC charger.
The Find X2 Neo has a Li-Po 4025 mAh battery, and comes with a 30W fast charger that will bring it up to 50% capacity in only 20 minutes.
Audio - how do the Find X2 phones sound?
The OPPO Find X2 Pro has three recording microphones so you can capture crisp, clear sound even in noisy conditions. You can block out wind noise or focus on a subject and amplify its sound as you zoom in.
When you're listening back, the X2 Find Pro creates a truly immersive experience. Its full-range top and bottom speakers combined with Dolby Atmos® deliver a rich, deep bass that really draws you in.
With her OPPO Find X2 Pro in her pocket, Michaela Skovronova was easily able to capture the unique sights and sounds of Antarctica.
"You can hear the ice releasing the air bubbles and it sounds like popcorn."
The Find X2 Neo is also very pleasing to the ear. It also employs a three-microphone system for recording. Playback is via dual stereo speakers, which allow you to pump up the volume without distortion. Meanwhile Dolby Atmos boosts the bass and enriches the sound.
Water and dust resistance
The OPPO Find X2 Pro has a rating of IP68 which means it’s splash, water and dust resistant. You can also submerge it to a maximum depth of 1.5m for up to thirty minutes.
If you don't need the ruggedness of the Find X2 Pro, you might consider the Find X2 Neo. While it doesn't have dust or water resistance, it's still a great phone, but at a lower price.
National Geographic filmmaker Michaela Skovranova pushed the limits of the OPPO Find X2 Pro to the extreme on her documentary expedition to Antarctica by filming icebergs underwater.
“We are recording under the water because most of the iceberg is under the surface."
All at the speed of 5G
