Oppo was initially expected to unveil the Find X2 during MWC 2020 in Barcelona. But the abrupt cancelation has led to no announcement of the smartphone to surface. Now, a new report suggests that the Chinese tech giant is still on track with the launch which will apparently take place on the 6th of March 2020.
The first quarter of 2020 is always bustling with multiple launches from various different OEMs. The Mobile World Congress which is held during this time also serves as a platform for high end launches and reveals. However, since the cancelation of the event due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, many OEMs have to now resort to independent promotion. Previously, Oppo had set a separate date of 22nd February after MWC got canceled, for the launch of the Find X2, but it seems that the date has been pushed further back.
Oppo Find X2 is the highly anticipated successor to the original Find X and is expected to feature a similar futuristic design. It was also one of the first smartphones to feature a sliding mechanism (pop up camera), which also gave it a unique aesthetic. Thus, the Find X2 is a much hyped launch from Oppo at the moment.
The first iteration packed top notch specs to back up its special design and was a well received product. Hence, the Find X2 is also expected to arrive with notable specs as well, including a 2K OLED panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 5G SoC. According to leaked specifications, the device will feature a 6.5 inch AMOLED panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
Under the hood, Qualcomm’s flagship chipset will be found alongside 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. In terms of battery, a large 4,065mAh battery pack with support for fast charging will be featured as well. Other specifications include details regarding the camera, with a 48 megapixel primary sensor, 8 megapixel ultra wide angle lens, and a 13 megapixel telephoto lens. The selfie shooter is reportedly a 32 megapixel camera.
Unfortunately, this is just an unconfirmed leak and we will have to wait for an official announcement or the launch event to provide concrete statements. If Oppo does launch the Find X2 in the first week of March, it will be around the same time as Oppo’s Reno 3 launch in India. So stay tuned for future coverage of both smartphones.
