The OPPO Find X2 was launched just under two weeks ago and has hit the hands of quite a few reviewers with much fanfare. The phone is loved by all and is something that OPPO are really proud to have achieved — it is their coming out as an ultra premium flagships right from the high quality display to the best in class camera system.
Unfortunately when the phone was announced here in Australia, although we got hands on with it, an Australian release date was not announced. While the Australian release date is still to be announced it seems that we will be in the second wave of countries to receive the phone.
Gizchina have managed to get their hands on a lost from OPPO that discloses the countries in which the Find X2 will be released. All things going well, and in this current age of COVID-19 running rampant through nearly every nation of the world date and times are extremely fluid, the phone is expected to see its first wave of international release by the end of this month (it is already available in China apparently).
The first countries that will see it will be:
- The Netherlands
Unfortunately Australia is not on that list but Gizchina were also provided with a list of twenty more countries that will receive their Find X2 (the Pro version here in Australia) “soon after this initial release”:
- New Zealand
- United Arab Emirates
- Saudi Arabia
- United Kingdom
We would expect OPPO to make the Find X2 Pro available to Australians around the end of April/early May but do not be surprised if that date is pushed back due to COVID-19-caused supply problems.
The OPPO Find X2 Pro will sport a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display which received an A+ rating from DisplayMate and includes a 120Hz refresh rate and a 10-bit colour display with 100% P3 gamut coverage. The camera has been rated by DxOMark (for what that is worth these days) as the equal best smartphone camera system available scoring 124 in topping the ratings on that site. Add in 5G support, a massive battery and a heap of storage, RAM and a Snapdragon 865 processor and you have by all definitions an ultra-premium smartphone.
At $1,599 it is not cheap but when you compare it to similar phones of similar specs and capabilities it is extremely competitively priced. We hope to have one in hand in the coming weeks and will bring you all the details on our thoughts on it before you have to go out and plonk your hard earned down for one.
