The 6.7″ AMOLED panel on the Oppo Find X2 and Find X2 Pro has been rated A+ by DisplayMate (calling it “top tier, world class” display). The company is excited to talk more about how the display was built and the features that enabled it to earn the highest mark.
But before we dive into that, some info on when the new flagship duo will be available. The phones are already available in China and will launch in the following countries by the end of the month: the Netherlands, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Singapore and Vietnam.
Twenty more countries will receive the Find X2 soon after: Australia, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Pakistan, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and United Kingdom.
The euro price for the Oppo Find X2 Pro is 1,200, the vanilla Find X2 goes for 1,000.
Now for the display – the Find X2 uses Samsung’s Y-OCTA technology, which makes panels thinner. It supports 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling rate, the system can intelligently adjust between 120Hz and 60Hz, based what what you are doing. For example, some apps support (and need) only 60Hz, but scrolling through the UI is always done at 120Hz.
Oppo uses a technique called “split sampling” – when the display driver is updating the image, the touch sampling hardware is disabled to avoid interference. The company also implemented physics-based animations (considering things like damping, speed, and inertia) that accurately match up to the speed of your finger.
Oppo worked with Samsung and Qualcomm to optimize its 10-bit HDR support. Better yet, it added a screen calibration step to the manufacturing process, which takes an extra 26 seconds. The company also filed two patents related to the process. And it was worth it as the Oppo Find X2 duo consistently achieves 0.4 JNCD absolute color accuracy (“visually indistinguishable from perfect”).
There’s an AI-driven system that automatically adjusts the color temperature and brightness of the screen depending on ambient light (the system is fed by two 6-channel color sensors). The color sensors also help the cameras capture more accurate colors.

If you want it, the O1 Ultra Vision Engine implements motion interpolation – taking 24fps or 30fps video and turning it into 120fps footage (that’s 5x or 4x the number of frames).
DisplayMate’s report shows that the Oppo Find X2 display has some of the highest peak brightness readings (over 1,300 nits with low average picture level), lowest screen reflectance (4.4%), smallest brightness and color variation with viewing angles, in addition to the perfect image quality and contrast.
