The launch of Oppo Ace 2 marks the beginning of a new lineup — omitting the ‘Reno’ moniker from its device, which was launched a year back in Oppo Reno Ace, a preeminent device of its time for being an affordable flagship.
The Snapdragon 865 processor lies at the helm of the device alongside up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, and dual-mode 5G connectivity, everything you could have wanted in a 2020 flagship. At the front, the device flaunts a 90Hz FHD+ OLED display with a 180Hz touch response rate conforming to the high refresh rate tenor coming from the previous year or so.
The Oppo Ace 2 boasts 65W wired charge support charging the 4,000mAh cell, applauded to charge the device fully in just 35 minutes. However, the crowned jewel of the device is its AirVOOC wireless charging conveying 40W speed, much like the Huawei P40 Pro Plus. Oppo affirms the wireless charging to charge the device fully in just 56 minutes. You can buy the accessory for 249 yuan (~$35) in China, whereas third-party Qi chargers would deliver up to 10W speeds.
Besides, the device also has the 10W reverse wireless charging allowing users to top up a true wireless earbud or someone else’s phone as well.
Moving onto the optics, you get a quad-camera setup at the back comprising a 48MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide (119-degrees), and a couple of 2MP portrait sensors while missing out on a telephoto zoom. Also, at the front lies a 16MP selfie snapper housed inside a punch-hole cutout.
Further noteworthy features include an under-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, enhanced haptic feedback, Breeno assistant, and ColorOS 7.1 based on Android 10 but you will miss the 3.5mm port.
The Oppo Ace 2 will go up for a sale at a price starting at 3,999 yuan (~$567) for the 8GB/128GB, 4,399 yuan (~$624) for the 8GB/256GB, and 4,599 yuan (~$652) for the 12GB/256GB variants. Having said that, words on its international availability are yet to be revealed.
