Just because a phone is packing Australia’s best 5G, an incredible screen and a pro-shooting camera, that doesn’t mean you have to pay a lot for it. We have the Telco exclusive on the Oppo Find X2 Neo. Here’s why you’ll love it too.

More features, less cash

The best thing by far about the Oppo Find X2 Neo is the bang-for-buck. You will be hard-pressed to find features like this on other phones at the same price!

It has a big 6.5-inch wraparound screen, with an impressive 1080 x 2400 resolution and a smooth 90Hz refresh rate. That adds up to a viewing experience for your games and movies that’s more than easy on the eyes. Similar to its big brother, the Find X2 Pro, it also has a notchless, edge-to-edge screen so nothing gets in the way of your favourite content.

It also has big power for a mid-range device, packing an awesome octa-core processor and a whopping 12GB of RAM. You won’t be wanting for internal storage either, with 256GB onboard. You can fill that storage with incredible photos and ultra-steady video from the quad-camera array.

It’s packing a 48-megapixel camera, plus a 13-megapixel telephoto camera and an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera for those big landscape shots. You’ll also look great in the 32-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera.

And to keep you going, there’s an integrated 4025mAh battery with VOOC4.0 fast-charging that can top up 50 per cent of the power in approximately 20 minutes.

Oppo Find X2 Pro: hands-on with this eye-popping beauty

By Luke Hopewell June 9, 2020

With an incredible screen and high-end specs, backed by Australia’s best 5G, the Oppo Find X2 Pro is a seriously hot bit of kit. We went hands-on to check it out.

It’s all about the screen

It has a big 6.7-inch screen with a whopping 1440×3168 (2K HDR10+) resolution, and a high 120hz refresh rate for buttery-smooth, high-resolution video on the go. All those numbers add up to one of the best mobile viewing experiences we’ve ever seen so you can really get your high-resolution streams on with this monster.

Nothing is getting in the way of your viewing experience, either. The edge-to-edge screen is notch-less, meaning you can enjoy true widescreen viewing of games, movies or TV shows.

Under the screen is the power to push the limits, with an octa-core processor, a whopping 12GB of RAM and Qualcomm Adreno 650 graphics processor for incredible performance.

And you don’t have to baby it, either: the Find X2 Pro features Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and is IP68 dust- and water-resistant*.

Oppo Reno 5G smashes speed test at Australian launch

By Luke Hopewell May 31, 2019

Last night in Sydney, Oppo launched its awesome new Reno 5G smartphone at an event in our Customer Innovation Centre (CIC). The event, attended by technology media and analysts, gave Aussies the first look at the awesome new Reno and its capabilities, with a 5G speed test that reached over 1900 Mbps down.

The Reno 5G checks all the boxes for a next-generation flagship, centred around incredible camera and processing power, along with exceptional display and gaming credentials. The Oppo Reno 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor underneath a huge 6.6-inch OLED display. Oppo has prioritised the display, meaning that the screen-to-body ratio is up to an incredible 93.1 per cent.

The camera also represents a great leap forward for smartphones, with a tri-lens rear camera setup that features a 48MP primary lens; a 13MP periscope telephoto lens and an 8MP wide-angle lens, all pointed at a Sony image sensor for incredible day, night and zoom photography, and 4K 60fps video recording. Around the front, a pop-up camera concealed within the handset produces wide-angle 18MP selfies, allowing the display to stay “notchless”.

The Oppo also prioritises gaming performance in its new flagship. It’s packing what Oppo is calling ‘Hyper Boost 2.0’, which speeds up display, system and app performance for faster results in-game. To top it all off, sound performance is crystal clear thanks to Dolby Atmos support. All of that is kept ticking for longer with a 4065mAh battery.

Oppo demonstrated the power of its new smartphone last night at Telstra’s Sydney CIC with a speed test that which achieved a download speed of 1942 Mbps on our 5G network, drawing gasps from the assembled crowd. And it wasn’t a one-off, either. We speed tested the Reno over and over and continue to achieve speeds over 1900 Mbps down, while being wowed by the screen and sleek design of the new device. (It is worth noting that the speed was achieved under test conditions and actual speeds in the real world will be slower.)

Oppo’s Managing Director Michael Tran said at last night’s event that the Reno 5G is the result of four years of R&D into 5G and its potential. Oppo’s 5G research shows that the new networking technology represents significant opportunity for consumer and business users, with the potential for greater collaboration and interactivity. Oppo’s research also showed that 5G had potential application for cutting-edge tech like driverless cars thanks to low latency and fast speeds. It’s continuing its research into 5G post-Reno launch.

Oppo announced that the Reno will be available for pre-order from today, and for a limited time come with a free pair of Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones (normally valued at $499.95). The Reno 5G goes on sale from 11 June, and at launch comes with a pair of Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Earphones (normally valued at $299.95), also for a limited time.

We’ll bring you a closer look at the Reno 5G in the coming weeks! Stay tuned for more.
