Oppo held its Oppo INNO Day 2022 in Malaysia, where it launched the Oppo Find X2, its latest foldable smartphone. This follows the release of Oppo’s first foldable smartphone, the Oppo Find X, last year. Oppo has taken a different approach with its foldable smartphones, opting for a more compact and pocketable design as opposed to Samsung’s tall and narrow form factor. This year, Oppo has made significant improvements to the design of its predecessor.

Oppo Find N2 “Cute Phone of the Year”

The Oppo Find X2 is a stylish horizontal foldable smartphone that is sure to attract many users, particularly those with small hands, due to its compact design. It is also one of the lightest folding smartphones, weighing in at approximately 233 grams. The device is available in White, Demure Green, Black with a vegan leather finish, and another option with a matte finish and a glittery finish on the camera module.

One of the key features of a foldable device is the hinge, and Oppo has made use of fewer moving parts and stronger alloy material to create a gapless foldable smartphone with a strong hinge. This makes the device more lightweight, cleaner, and smaller.

The crease on the display has also been reduced by about 67% and is hard to spot when the device is unfolded. However, the Oppo Find X2 does not have an official IP rating like Samsung’s foldable smartphone. It is disappointing that Oppo has not included dust and water protection on this second-generation foldable smartphone.

“Using the Oppo Find X2 folded feels like using a normal smartphone, and the typing experience is also good, as one would expect from an Oppo smartphone. Oppo has also improved the display, with a 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz sampling rate on both displays, making it feel smooth and natural.

The primary display, when unfolded, is a 7.1-inch LTPO AMOLED with a 120Hz FHD+ panel featuring HDR10+ Dolby Atoms. The outer display is a 5.57-inch AMOLED display with a 129Hz FHD+ and HDR10+ Dolby Vision. The device has a high-quality panel with good color and contrast. Under the hood, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is not the latest but is still powerful and will not cause any performance issues.

In terms of the camera, the Oppo Find X2 has a 50MP Sny IMX890 with OIS + 48MP ultra-wide angle + 32MP telephoto lens, all with Hasselblad color calibration. The device also has a 32MP selfie shooter with good low-light capabilities and nice detail. The device is powered by a 4520mAh battery with 67W fast charging, which is a notable upgrade.

One of the main areas where Samsung has an advantage in the foldable smartphone market is in the design and smooth operation of their operating system. While ColorOS has improved and adopted some of these features, it is still an area where the Oppo Find X2 lacks.

In addition to the Oppo Find X2, Oppo also unveiled three new smart innovations: the Marie Silicon Y N6RF audio chipset, which aims to improve Bluetooth sound quality and computational audio; the multi-purpose health monitoring device “Oppo Health H1”; and the Oppo Air Glasses.
