Oppo has just confirmed something that isn’t a secret for anyone. The upcoming Oppo Find X2 will be accompanied by an Oppo Find X2 Pro variant. However, details about this latter unit were scarce until now. Thankfully, the company’s VP, Brian Shen, decided to finally share some tidbits about the high-end unit.
According to the executive, the Find X2 Pro will offer “extra image quality”, suggesting a different, better camera setup. Moreover, he states that the non-Pro will use a new Sony IMX sensor that already offers improvements to the image quality over previous generation phones. Also, the Oppo Find X2 will have a smaller camera hump and the phone will be thinner than the Pro variant. The extra bulk probably is a justified price that the Oppo Find X2 Pro has to pay for the more advanced hardware.
In case you didn’t already know from the rumors, there’ll be a Find X2 Pro and a Find X2, making up the series.

Interestingly enough, the VP prefer the Find X2 due to its slimmer profile and choice of finishes. The X2 and X2 Pro will have a different exterior finish and presumably different color options. The Find X2 Pro will have a triple camera module, including a periscope for advanced Zoom capabilities. The camera array houses dual 48MP sensors that come along with a 13MP periscope telephoto unit
Anyway, Shen shares that he prefers the Find X2 for its slimmer profile and choice of finishes (the X2 and X2 Pro will differ in the exterior finish and presumably colors available). It’s unclear which of these cameras will be downgraded in the vanilla unit. Thankfully, we don’t need to wait much longer, since both smartphones will be revealed tomorrow in an online conference.
