Oppo caused a commotion in the tech industry last year with its innovative smartphone design on its flagship device, the Oppo Find X. The Find X came with a motorized pop-up camera that allowed the device to have a nearly bezel-less screen without the need of a notch. Now, details of its successor have started to surface online and the device could be called the Oppo Find X2. It looks like Oppo is looking forward to continuing the trend of upheaving the tech industry with yet another innovative integration to the device.
One of the key-features the Oppo Find X2 could come up with is the incorporation of 10x optical zoom support, which was detailed in China recently and is expected to be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2019 next month.
The information about the next-generation of the Find X comes from the tech youtuber Mrwhosetheboss who claims that the Find X2 will bring some major changes this year. In his video, he says that Oppo has confirmed that it will bring 10x optical zoom solution on a smartphone and is also expected to bring a new in-display fingerprint scanner technology that was announced last week. He adds that Oppo will combine its variable aperture camera technology that was seen on R17 with 10x optical zoom technology compromised in a periscope-style lens that will give the phone a new design.
There are various speculations regarding other features of the phone including a night-mode and a ToF sensor for 3D mapping. According to Mrwhosetheboss, the next-gen Oppo Find X will ditch the slider mechanism, which made the original so famous, in favor of a punch-hole camera display. Oppo might end up dropping the pop-up camera as the original, although garnered much attention for the feature, was taken with a hint of skepticism because of the phone’s depleted durability.
Other features that have been tipped for the smartphone include support for SuperVOOC charging which uses a 50W charger to quickly redeem the battery and wireless charging.
The smartphone is said to be launching in June this year, not unlike its predecessor.
