5G Capable OPPO Smartphones

OPPO Find X2 Pro

This phone is one of OPPO's 5G capable devices that will surely catch your eye because of its amazing features and specifications.

  • Design. This very attractive phone has a smooth and posh design with a curved screen and an off-centre camera bump at its rear. It is also comfortable to hold because of its soft leather and it has a ceramic finish which is subtly reflective and glossy. You will have a modern and immersive viewing experience because of the waterfall screen of this phone.

  • Display. Several users dubbed this OPPO release as a mini-cinema in your pockets because of its 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 3,168 × 1,440 pixel resolution. In addition to this, it also has a 120Hz refresh rate with 240Hz touch sampling which paves the way for a seamless scrolling. However, its brightness may not be optimal when used outdoors under the bright sun.

  • Camera. The camera of this smartphone has an impressive 10x zoom hybrid setting. Additionally, the macro mode is capable of shooting a close up even at only 3cm of distance. It also has a wide-angle lens, as well as a dark mode feature that allows you to take natural photos even in almost complete darkness. 

  • Performance and Battery. OPPO Find X2 Pro is a fast-charging phone. In fact, all you need is 38minutes to fully charge its 4,260mAh battery cell. It is also packed with safety features such as a special cooling mechanism inside it to ensure optimal performance. However, this phone is not capable of wireless charging though. Performance-wise, you will find that this phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and 12GB of RAM. This is coupled with a 512GB storage space, although there is no slot for a micro SD card.

OPPO Reno 10x Zoom

Another 5G capable OPPO device is the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom that has a competitive price, undercutting most of the other 5G capable phones out in the market today. Below are some of the amazing features of this phone.

  • Design. The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom has a chunky design with a 9.4mm thick and 210g slab of gorilla glass and aluminium. It is built with a frosted glass that gives it a warm and soft touch. The great part is that it has a unique pop up camera that you would want to show off to your friends.

  • Software and Screen. Reno runs with the Android 9.0 Pie operating system, which is known to be speedy and never sluggish. However, you may find large buttons for notification settings somehow annoying, or you may fall prey to the "close all apps" system that still leaves several of the background apps in your phone up and running.

  • Display. This phone has a big 6.6in OLED screen with a 2,340x1,080p resolution. True enough, it has a lower resolution compared to other Android phones but this is generally unnoticeable. The no-notch look will even make playing online games or video streaming a much more immersive experience for you. 

  • Camera. Reno boasts of a 10x zoom capability. It also has a separate button to activate the wide-angle camera, but you can also use the button to scroll through the different zoom levels available. You may find that the 6x zoom is already optimal but the 10x zoom may result in low-quality photos particularly on low-light. Nevertheless, you will find consistency in your photos, regardless of the lens or zoom level that you use. For sure, you will also love the versatility of this phone's camera and how its lens is set up.

  • Performance and Battery. Aside from 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage space, you will find that the SIM tray has space for a micro SD card. Alongside this, the capacity of the battery of this phone will get you going throughout the entire day even if you are constantly gaming or watching videos. However, you need to allow an hour and a half to fully charge it. Even the software of the phone is speedy and smooth.

  • Price, Availability, and Warranty. While Reno is not officially available in the US, you can easily acquire this phone in the UK, as well as in other regions in Europe, Asia, and Australia at a very reasonable price. OPPO also provides a two-year warranty but this doesn't cover any accidental damage though. The great news is that the warranty is recognized internationally.

Conclusion

If you are keen on having a 5G capable phone without breaking your bank, then it is a good idea for you to consider OPPO's releases. Rest assured that you will get all the features that you need in a phone with a sleek design, perfect for your everyday use.
