Oppo today unveiled the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro smartphones. The first generation was first shown in 2018 and featured a retractable front camera. It's strange why the company decided to update the phone only two years later, but it still happened. How will the Chinese please us this time? But not much, in truth. We are offered Chinese phones for immodest money.

Oppo Find X2 / X2 Pro Specifications
The phones are equipped with a 6.7-inch 120Hz display and technology OLED. It also uses 3K resolution (3168 x 1440 pixels). Oppo claims that the display here is supposedly very cool, let's take their word for it. The maximum brightness in the devices can reach 1200 nits, there is also a touchscreen with a refresh rate of 240 Hz.
The O2 Utra Vision Engine chip is responsible for the picture quality of the screen, the work of which is complemented by the improvement of HDR and the Motion Clear technology, which supposedly makes viewing live broadcasts clearer.
Find X2 Pro uses a 48MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom and 10x hybrid, similar to how it is implemented in Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S20 Ultra. In addition, the Find X2 Pro offers 60x software zoom, which is certainly better than what Huawei does, but I recently compared the new S20 Ultra with the P30 Pro and I thought 100x was pure PR. The situation is probably similar here. Supplements the work of the 13 Mp telephoto periscope camera and the 12 Mp module. Interestingly, the periscope camera is only available in the Pro version.
Find X2 and X2 Pro use a 32MP front camera. The Snapdragon 865 with support 5G is responsible for the performance in the devices, the battery in phones is 4200 mAh with fast charging 65 W SuperVOOC 2.0. It allows you to charge your device up to 60% in just 15 minutes. The phones are fully charged in just 40 minutes. The devices are equipped with 12 GB of RAM. The X2 offers 256GB of internal storage and the X2 Pro 512GB.
Now the most important thing is prices. In Russia, Find X2 is priced at 72,990 rubles. Find X2 Pro, probably, Oppo decided not to sell with us, and this is understandable, because in Europe the phone is priced at 1199 euros. Who is ready to give more than 90 thousand rubles for a Chinese?

Smartphones outwardly look like a mixture Huawei of the P-series and the flagship Galaxy S10. The phone lacks any originality. And if the first Find X really offered something interesting and original in this matter, the Find X2 is just a copy of smartphones from other manufacturers.
Find X2 price is the main problem
So what do we have? We are offered a Chinese phone with the appearance of other flagships for 70 thousand rubles. Who is it for? Unclear. It is worth noting that when the sale of Find X started in Russia, the guys managed to sell only 20 phones. 20! For comparison, Apple in 2019 sold 46.3 million iPhone XR. How do you like that, m?
How to sell the only Find X2 in Russia? Play it!
If you go to the official website, you will notice that the company today – March 6 – will hold a phone draw on the Wylsacom tech blogger channel. Firstly, why is this necessary, because the advertising company is unlikely to help attract real buyers, fans Apple or Samsung will not buy a Chinese for that kind of money. Secondly, Valentin Petukhov is popular because he often changes his mind about the advertised products. And here the situation is similar. Today, an opinion leader can praise a smartphone, and tomorrow tell his fans about what kind of phone it is – terrible and how Apple it is beautiful. Hiring Valentine as an influencer isn't the best way to make yourself known.
Competitors are better
Xiaomi Mi 10 in the minimum configuration with almost the same hardware is offered for $ 570. Now tell me, are you ready to buy a phone from Oppo with the same hardware? Or is the device better Xiaomi? Or buy iPhone XR for the same $ 600? Exactly! I will understand everything, but I will never accept such stupid pricing and spending on bloggers who change their minds every other day.
