In 2018 Oppo Find X launched with gorgeous Full-Screen design, thanks to the pop-up camera mechanism. In fact, it was one of the first smartphones to launch with a pop-up mechanism. While we didn’t get any successor in 2019, the Oppo Find X2 series is now official & this time there are two phones – Find X2 and Find X2 Pro.
The difference? Well, the Find X2 Pro gets a slightly different camera setup including a periscope camera, IP68 rating, and a bigger battery.
When it comes to the design, it is the same for both the phones, at least from the front. Despite having the ‘Pro’ in the name, the X2 Pro doesn’t have a bigger screen with a higher resolution. The display on both the phones is a 6.7-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 3168 x 1440 pixels (3K). The screen has a 120Hz refresh rate & 240Hz touch-sampling rate. The display also features the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
Both the phones have a triple camera setup on the rear, but the camera sensors are different on both.
The Oppo Find X2 gets a triple camera setup with a primary 48 Megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with Optical Image Stabilization, a secondary 12 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera (120-degree) with Sony IMX708 sensor, and a 13 Megapixel telephoto lens with 5x Hybrid Zoom. The ultra-wide-angle camera can also be used to take Macro photos as it can go as close as 3cm to the subject without losing focus.
The camera on the front is a 32 Megapixel unit with f/2.4 aperture & 5P Lens.
The rear cameras can shoot up to 4K 60fps videos while the front camera is limited to 1080p 30fps video recording.
Coming to the Oppo Find X2 Pro now, it has a triple camera setup as well, but there is a primary 48 Megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor with 1/1.4″ sensor size, f/1.7 aperture, 7P Lens, and individual pixel size of 1.12µm. There is a secondary 48 Megapixel Ultra-Wide-Angle camera with Sony IMX586 sensor (120-degree). This is one of the largest camera sensors employed for an ultra-wide-angle camera on a smartphone.
Finally, the star of the show is the 13 Megapixel Periscope Telephoto camera with 5X Optical Zoom, 10X Hybrid Zoom & up to 60X Digital Zoom. Oppo says that this is the second generation 10x-Hybrid Zoom camera after the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom.
The front camera is the same, i.e., a 32 Megapixel unit with f/2.4 aperture.
While both Find X2 & Find X2 Pro feature 65W Fast Charging, the battery sizes are slightly different. The Oppo Find X2 has a 4,200mAh battery (2*2100mAh) whereas the Find X2 Pro gets a 4,260mAh battery (2*2130mAh). There is no Wireless Charging support.
Since these are the flagships, it is no surprise that the Oppo Find X2 series is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G SOC. There is 12GB LPDDR5 RAM on both phones, but the Find X2 Pro gets 512GB storage compared to Find X2’s 256GB. It’s UFS 3.0 for both phones, and you cannot expand the storage since there is no SD card slot.
Another difference between the two phones is that the Oppo Find X2 Pro gets IP68 rating whereas it is IP54 in case of the Find X2. Also, it is no surprise that there is no 3.5mm headphone jack. The Find X2 Pro also has an X-axis motor for better haptic feedback.
Finally, Android 10 runs out of the box with ColorOS 7.1 running on top.
