A recent leak-heavy video by the YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss alleges that OPPO's latest camera technology, the 10X optical zoom lens, will be integrated into the next generation of its Find X flagship. This phone may also contain a TOF sensor, an in-display fingerprint reader and the Snapdragon 855 chipset. However, the device may also drop the mechanical slider from last year.

A recent video made by the YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss has outlined all of the novel specs that OPPO could debut in the second device to be released under the Find X name. This device, which could be called the Find X2 or possibly the Find X II, was alleged to include the OEM's new super-telescopic lens, which exploits prismatic properties and the width of a smartphone chassis to produce optical zoom of up to 10X. 

The 'Find X2' was also projected to introduce OPPO's new adjustable aperture feature, which, as in the original found in the 2018 line of Samsung flagships, can widen automatically according to the available light. At least one of its camera sensors could be a time-of-flight (TOF) 3D module, according to the video. The Find X2 could also depart from its fore-runner in having a fingerprint reader, and one that is set into the display. Like Xiaomi's recent advance in this area, it is predicted to improve on surface-area and accuracy compared to last year's models.

Finally, the Find X2 could upgrade to Super VOOC fast wired charging, and drop the motorized slider that was the unique selling point of the preceding generation. Given that OPPO also appears to be ready to adopt wireless charging, it could also incorporate this method of powering up. On the other hand, there is no evidence that the OEM may include wireless charging (presuming it will have it ready for 2019) in this line of smartphones. It is possible that it may go to another, such as the R series, instead in order to maintain this mid-tier range's populatiry.

As for the Find X2's performance, nothing is known for sure yet. It is a reasonably safe bet that it will be powered by the premium Snapdragon 855 SoC. On this note, GizChina has claimed that a new OPPO device under the unfamiliar code-name Poseidon, which runs under Android 9 and the same chipset, had posted over 3000 and 10000 in Geekbench's single- and dual-core tests respectively.  However, our research has been unable to confirm the existence of such a device on that benchmark's database.
