Google dropped the first Android 11 Beta yesterday, which means functionality is getting close to what we can expect in the final, stable version. This is usually the stage at which other OEMs are brought on board so developers and enthusiasts can install the Android Beta on devices other than Google Pixels, and now Oppo, Xiaomi, and OnePlus are announcing support for several of their phones.
Oppo has announced the long-awaited follow up to the Find X at an event in London that was originally planned to have taken place at MWC. Two new models have been unveiled, with the Find X2 and Pro variant sharing mostly the same spec sheet but for a few key differentiators. They both include the Snapdragon 865 SoC, 12GB of RAM, and a stunning QHD+ 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display with a punch-hole selfie camera cutout. At a separate event in China, the first Oppo Watch was also introduced with a somewhat familiar design.
One of the most sensational smartphones to come out of 2018 is supposedly getting a sequel this year. In December, Oppo announced its plans to launch the Find X2 this year with the Snapdragon 865, a Sony all-pixel PDAF camera, and a pretty good display. How good of a display? A company executive has tweeted out some prime details.
During discussions with Oppo as part of Inno Day 2019, the company shared with us a little bit about its plans for next year and in particular its next flagship smartphone. The Chinese brand will release a follow up to the innovative Find X, the eye-catching low-bezel device with a slide-out camera mechanism (pictured). We don't know exactly what form the upcoming Find X2 will take yet, but we do know that low-light photography and improvements to the screen quality and user experience will be key areas that Oppo will focus on for the launch.
