[Update: Resolution] OPPO VP confirms the Find X2 will have a 120Hz display but warns the phone may face production issues
We have been hearing about OPPO’s next flagship, the Find X2, for some time now. Last month, the device passed through Thailand’s NBTC certification website while a leak from Ice Universe shed light on some of the possible specifications of the device. In the most recent round of leaks, live images and screenshots of the OPPO Find X2 were leaked on Weibo which gave us our first look at the design of the device and also revealed some of the display features.
Now OPPO VP Brian Shen has taken to Twitter to reveal the resolution, screen refresh rate, and other display properties of the OPPO Find X2. According to Shen, the OPPO Find X2 will feature a QHD+ display with a screen refresh rate of 120Hz. Moreover, the display will be capable of reaching 1200 nits of brightness in HDR mode and will also support upscaling SDR content to HDR.
Although the tweet didn’t mention other specifications of the device, we do know that the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, will feature Sony’s new image sensor, and will support 65W SuperVOOC fast charging.
But OPPO may not be able to produce enough units to meet the initial demand. In a separate post on Weibo, Mr. Shen warned that the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak will likely impact the production capacity of the OPPO Find X2 as the factories and manufacturing plants in Hubei and other Chinese provinces are still under lockdown. How severe the impact will be, we don’t know yet but this could mean the international release may get delayed.
We expect to learn more about the OPPO Find X2 including its full specifications, pricing and international availability at OPPO’s MWC 2020 press conference which is still scheduled to take place on Feb 23.
Update: OPPO Find X2 to sport 120HZ 3K resolution display
OPPO has clarified the device resolution on the OPPO Find X2. The phone has now been officially and explicitly confirmed to come with a 120Hz refresh rate 3K resolution (3168 * 1440) display with a touch sampling rate of 240Hz.
This would give the phone a high pixel density of 513 ppi. Coupled with the high refresh rate and touch sampling rate, the Find X2 has its display as one of its strong points that the competition may not be able to match.
