Oppo Find X2 launches with whopping 3K-resolution screen

Update: We’ve spent enough time worth the phone to declare it Oppo’s most well-rounded package to date. Read more in our Oppo X2 Pro hands on.

Oppo launched the Find X2 smartphone on March 6, a new date following the cancellation of Mobile World Congress 2020 (MWC 2020). Ahead of the launch, Oppo Vice President of Global Marketing Brian Shen shared a few details about the phone on his own Twitter account, and told us the phone will have a screen with a 3K resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate.

Bring visuals to life and #UncoverTheUltimate with us on March 6. #OPPOFindX2 is coming soon.

Although Shen did not mentioned the size of the screen, previous leaks correctly placed it at 6.5 inches and stated the resolution as 3,168 × 1,440 pixels. This fits in with the approximate pixel count on a so-called 3K resolution screen. The 120Hz refresh rate is welcome, too: Several phones have a 90Hz refresh rate, including the OnePlus 7T Pro, but only high-end gaming phones like the Asus ROG Phone 2 take it to 120Hz. Higher refresh rates reduce blur on the screen when scrolling, watching video or playing games.

Shen has also talked a little about the design of the display itself, saying it isn’t an exact replication of the prototype waterfall screen shown in mid-2019, but a refined version that improves its usability. Waterfall screens take their name from the way the display cascades over the side of the device, which often leaves little room for buttons, and can cause problems with unwanted screen activations too. The design has been steadily improved over the last year — Vivo’s Nex 3 is a great example of the tech working well — but for the Find X2, Oppo has added physical volume buttons and reduced the overall waterfall effect compared to the 2019 prototype.

The original Oppo Find X was such an exciting phone, with a fantastic design and an innovative pop-up camera, it helped put the company’s name on the map outside China. Since then Oppo has released a wide range of smartphones in Europe and internationally, including the well-received Oppo Reno 10x Zoom. To be worthy of the Find X name, however, the Find X2 will have to be very special indeed. Oppo’s tagline for the phone is Uncover the Ultimate, which sounds promising indeed.

Oppo Find X5 Pro gets flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor

Oppo's flagship Find X3 Pro was released in March 2021 to great reviews. Now, the next device rumored to be the Oppo Find X5 Pro is expected to release this March. Sources have suggested that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which is Snapdragon's most powerful processor yet.

Interestingly, it seems likely that there will be no Oppo Find X4 Pro as the number 4 is not considered to be lucky in Chinese. The number is considered to be nearly homophonous to the word "death" in Cantonese. The details of the upcoming handset were leaked by Digital Chat Station and Abhishek Yadav, two well-known tipsters in the digital arena. Meanwhile, a tipster called OnLeaks, shared the first photos of the phone below.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 isn’t better than the Oppo Find N, and that’s a good thing
Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Oppo Find N closed in hand.

If the Oppo Find N is one of the most important smartphones released this year, due to its chance to truly challenge Samsung’s current dominance in folding phones, how does it really compare with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 when you use them each day?

Since the Oppo Find N arrived last week, I’ve been using it alongside the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, initially expecting to come up with a solid answer about which one is the best at being a folding smartphone. However, as time passed, I found neither of them is better than the other, and then realized this was the best possible outcome. Here’s why.
The differences
Before we get into how the two phones work alongside each other, we need to talk about the differences. Although both the Oppo Find N and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 operate in basically the same way, there are some differences that change the way you use both phones.

Oppo’s Android 12-based ColorOS 12 is coming to the Find X3 Pro in December
oppo find x3 pro review back hand

ColorOS 12, Oppo’s smartphone operating system based on Google’s Android 12, will be coming to the Oppo Find X3 Pro in December, with other models in the company’s range to follow over the coming year. Oppo says the new version is cleaner, smoother, and more inclusive than before, but if you’re waiting to hear a mass of new features, you may be disappointed.

Inclusivity is one of the key aspects of ColorOS 12, and is important to the continued growth of ColorOS around the world. New Omoji animated emoji characters have a wide range of customizations to ensure they appeal to everyone, for example, but it’s in the software itself that a lot of work has taken place to make it more inclusive. This includes formatting and appearance changes for text in languages other than Chinese and English, new translations for specific languages including Danish, where Oppo understood it was lacking, and even alterations to the camera app algorithm in the beautification feature to make it more suitable for more people.
