A couple of weeks back, OPPO introduced its much-awaited flagship Find X2 Pro at an online event boasting some top-notch specifications. Positioned against the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, the X2 Pro focuses more on the photography this time with two 48MP cameras and a 13MP telephoto.
Unlike Find X, the Find X2 Pro looks like a traditional slab and comes in two variants – Ceramic, resembles glass back with a slight curvy, striated patterning on the back, and vegan leather version. Our is the Ceramic variant with 512GB inbuilt storage. At 207 grams, the device feels heavy, but the sleek build at 8.8mm thickness sort of makes up for it. The device is fingerprint magnet and feels slippery as well. Nonetheless, the device is comfortable hold. We suggest you to use with the case provided inside the box.
Talking about the interaction elements, the power button with a green inlay is housed on the right side. The left side has just the volume rocker buttons. The button feedback is very positive and positioned well as well. At the bottom, you will find USB-C port, the primary mic, SIM tray, and loudspeaker grille. Since it has stereo speakers, another speaker is integrated into the earpiece.
This time, OPPO went with a punch-hole style selfie camera for the Find X2 Pro. The phone features a 32-megapixel camera on the front inside a 3.84mm punch hole. The Find X2 Pro packs a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It’s worth mentioning that the screen is curved 67.8°. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The device also supports 800 nits brightness and 1200 nits peak brightness.
The colors are vibrant, blacks are deep, have a very good peak brightness (so you will be fine under direct sunlight) and the content consumption are excellent, thanks to dual firing speakers. Unlike Galaxy S20 Ultra, the X2 Pro can run on 120Hz even on QHD+ resolution. The X2 Pro on the other hand no longer features 3D face unlock, which is way more secure and allows users to unlock the phone in the dark.
With X2 Pro, OPPO included a feature called Ultra Vision Engine through a dedicated custom chip for image processing. Upon enabling, users can upscale video to 60Hz or 120Hz accordingly. It is more of like motion-smoothing, which OnePlus 8 Pro also has.
The Find X2 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 865 with 5G support and has triple thermal dissipation that uses thermal conductive gel, vapour chamber liquid cooling, and multilayer graphite. The X2 Pro is incredibly fast. In fact, the combination of a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch response rate makes this device look and feel amazingly fast.
The X2 Pro is shipped with Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1. It looks more or less similar to OxygenOS. This iteration of ColorOS feels much simpler and features a lot of customisable options. For example, it lets users change icons, options choose either notification center or Global search when swiping down, home screen mode, and much more. Now users can select – Standard, Focus, and Driving Mode from the notification panel itself. Overall, ColorOS 7.1 is improved and snappy.
A few days back, the company also released the Android 11 Beta 1 update based on ColorOS 7.2 for the Find X2 Series. Notably, the Android 11 Beta 1 is focused on three key themes: People, Controls, and Privacy.
Coming to the camera, the Find X2 Pro has
- 48MP primary camera with Sony IMX689 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, 7P lens LED flash, OIS + EIS
- 48MP 120° ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, Sony IMX586 sensor, 3cm macro,
- 13MP periscope telephoto camera with f/3.0 aperture, 20x hybrid zoom, up to 60x digital zoom, OIS.

The whole hardware is powered by a 4260 mAh battery with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 super flash charge fast charging that can charge the phone fully in 35 minutes. On a casual usage in 120Hz, the battery almost lasted me throughout the day. Overall, the battery life in this device is pretty much decent.
All said and done, the OPPO Find X2 Pro is not going on sale in India anytime soon due to unknown reasons. Instead, the company will donate the phone as a part of Forbes India ‘Ultimate 120’ Corona warriors.
