The Oppo Find X2 Pro launched in Australia today, and it’s one of the most premium phones available from Oppo. But it’s not exactly an affordable phone – and that could explain why the company also surprised us with two new mid-range siblings in the line.
These phones are the Oppo Find X2 Neo and Find X2 Lite, and they've just dropped in Australia, with plans already available from Optus and Telstra.
Examining the 5G phones
The Oppo Find X2 Neo costs AU$999 and is essentially a specced-down Find X2 – though the latter isn't officially available in Australia. It has a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with 90Hz refresh rate, and like the Find X2 and X2 Pro the display is curved at the sides, with a punch-hole for the front-facing camera. It runs the Snapdragon 765G chipset, which delivers the phone's 5G capability, and it's also packing 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
The camera array here consists of a 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 13MP telephoto and 2MP black-and-white snappers; and for the selfie cam, you've got a 32MP sensor. Finally, the battery capacity is 4,025mAh, with 30W fast charging.
The Oppo Find X2 Lite is more affordable again at AU$749 – although the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a little cheaper – denying the Find X2 Lite the title of 'cheapest 5G phone' in Australia.

The Find X2 Lite has the same battery, charging speed and chipset as the Neo, and three of the same cameras – the difference is the telephoto snapper makes way for a 'retro-effects camera' which we're certainly intrigued to test out, not least to find out what that actually means.
The Find X2 Lite's screen is the main feature that sets it apart from the other three phones, as unlike those it doesn't have a curved screen – the display is flat, and broken up by a notch at the top. It's a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel, though one with the 'standard' 60Hz refresh rate rather than the fast 90Hz.
The Oppo Find X2 Pro, Neo, and Lite are available now in Australia and retail for AU$1,599, AU$999, and AU$749 respectively. We'll make sure to review both phones to see if they're worth your money.
