The Oppo Ace 2 has been officially announced after a month of constant leaks and teasers. The new phone retains the 90Hz refresh rate screen and 65W wired charging of its predecessor – the Oppo Reno Ace, but it comes with the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset, 5G connectivity and the fastest wireless charging around 40W, all thanks to the brand new AirVOOC charger.
Oppo Ace 2 Features
The Oppo Ace 2 comes with a 6.5 inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. The display has a punch-hole cutout at the top left corner which accommodates the 16MP selfie camera.
At the back, you will find a circular cutout for the rear cameras. The rear camera setup is made up of a 48MP main shooter, 8MP ultrawide snapper, and two 2MP “portrait cameras”, which is a fancy term for depth helpers.
Under the hood of the Oppo Ace 2, lies a Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with either an 8GB or 12GB RAM with the higher capacity being the LPPDR5 variety and 128GB/256GB UFS 3.0 storage.
The Oppo Ace 2 has a 4000mAh battery which supports 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast wired charging which is pretty fast. What is more impressive is the 40W AirVOOC wireless charger which Oppo claims can complete a 0 to 100% charge in just 56 minutes. The actual charging pad has its own spinning fan to keep thermals in check and will be sold separately for CNY 249 ($35).
On the software-front, the Oppo Ace 2 runs on Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1 on top. Other notable features are Wi-Fi 6 and NFC and 10W reverse wireless charging.
Oppo Ace 2 Price and Availability
The Oppo Ace 2 price starts at CNY 3,999 ($565) for the 8GB/128GB model. There is also an 8GB/256GB variant for CNY 4,399 ($625) and a top of the line 12GB/256GB trim for CNY4,599($650).
The phone will be available in Purple, Grey, and Silver colours. Pre-orders are already ongoing, while the Ace 2 official sales will start from April 20, 2020. The international availability of this phone is yet to be confirmed at the moment.
