Some recent leaks have asserted that the second-generation Find X flagship phone from OPPO will have a 120 hertz (Hz) refresh rate at a QHD+ resolution. The freshly-launched Samsung Galaxy S20 series has similar properties - however, they don't co-exist in real-world devices. In addition, the X2 is rumored to have some new Sony camera sensors.

The OPPO Find X2 is touted to be a contender to the Galaxy S20 line's new flagship throne on its launch. It, like some variants of the Samsung phones, may be powered by a Snapdragon 865 SoC, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage speeds. However, there is at least 1 vital point on which they may differ.

The Find X2 is now said to have a display that goes up to a QHD+ resolution and to 120Hz refresh rates. However, unlike the Galaxy S20s, which only support the latter when their Dynamic AMOLED screens are set to FHD+, the 2 specs will co-exist in the OPPO alternative.

The X2 is also thought to be like the Galaxy S20 in that it will have 3 cameras on its rear panel. A render indicating the same has been corroborated by a real-life image posted by the leaker Ben Geskin. However, the 2 phones may again differ in these terms. The X2 is now linked to the heretofore-unseen Sony IMX689 and IMX708 sensors.

OPPO has allegedly co-developed the former with its Japanese maker, something not even Samsung could say. The latter, on the other hand, is rumored to be the world's best wide-angle camera on its release to the market.

Therefore, the Find X2 may compete with the Galaxy S20 base model - at the least - on its release. However, there may be a considerable hitch in this respect. OPPO has recently been obliged to cancel its launch event (a tie-in with MWC 2020). It may now not take place until March 2020, although the company has yet to work out a new venue for the show.

Furthermore, the OEM's vice-president, Shen Yiren, has advized potential customers that its fabrication process has been halted, which may in turn affect the phone's availability. Both issues are related to the current novel coronavirus public health crisis.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
