Oppo released a set of competitive smartphones this year under its Reno series. However, we can say that the star of flagship smartphones still belongs to the Oppo Find X2 series. The devices were more on par with other 2020 smartphone flagships and weren’t crazily expensive as the original Oppo Find X. The Oppo Find X marked the return of the popular smartphones series with pomp. The device came with a true full-screen display and a motorized mechanism capable of revealing its powerful cameras. The device was so “unusual” than we can call it a “concept” phone, maybe one of the most successful to the date. Well, two years have passed since the release of the Oppo Find X and today it is getting December 2020 security patch.
The Oppo Find X is getting the software update CPH1871EX_11_F.2. Meanwhile, Oppo is also rolling the same security patch for the Oppo A33. This duo of devices has nothing in common besides Oppo’s logo. The latter is a budget-oriented smartphone and is getting the CPH2137_11_A.10 with the latest security patches provided by Google.
Apart from the up to the date security patch, the update also brings important improvements and bug fixes. As usual, Oppo cites a set of underhood stability improvements and security fixes. Moreover, the update optimizes memory utilization for better battery performance. In case you’re wondering, the update still is based on Android 10. For now, it’s impossible to state whether or not any of these will get the Android 11-based ColorOS 11 update.
Oppo Find X specs recap
The Oppo Find X came in late 2018 and packs a 6.43-inch bezel-free AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. The device came with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of Internal Storage. When the device is in standard mode, none of the cameras is visible to the eyes. Once you open the camera app, the motorized mechanism slides up revealing the Dual Rear Camera setup and the 20MP selfie snapper. The Oppo Find X came in two variants – One has a 3,700mAh battery with 20W fast-charging and the other dubbed Super Flash Edition came with a 3,400mAh battery with 50W SuperVOOC charging. It’s interesting to see how the technology evolved to the point that even Oppo mid-range phones have 65W fast-charging. Another interesting fact is that the Find X arrived with Android 8.1 Oreo and got updated to ColorOS 7 based on Android 10. Would be amazing to see it getting Android 11, but only time will tell.
