The OPPO Ace 2 is finally official. This new device from OPPO is the successor of the OPPO Reno Ace, which previously owns the record for the world’s fastest wired charging system in a smartphone.
Just as expected, OPPO removed the Reno branding with the Ace 2. With the new nomenclature, we expect OPPO to have a better direction on the “Ace” branding in the future.
The main selling point of the OPPO Ace 2 is its insanely fast “AirVOOC” system with 40W wireless technology. It is at par with Huawei P40 Pro and far better than the wireless charging of Apple and Samsung which is only 7.5W and 15W, respectively.
Apart from the wireless charging, the OPPO Ace 2’s wired charging is impressive with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0. Meanwhile, its battery capacity is somehow mediocre with 4,000 mAh.
When it comes to other specs, the OPPO Ace 2 is not as fancy as the new OPPO Find X2 Pro but still maintained flagship internals. It comes powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset and supports a 5G network. The phone also has up to 12GB RAM, 256GB of internal storage and runs Android 10 OS.
Moreover, the OPPO Ace 2 features a 6.55-inch OLED screen with a 1080p resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a face unlock feature.
As expected, the OPPO Ace 2 lacks some lackluster features in the camera department. The Ace 2 has a quad camera setup with a 48-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, and dual 2-megapixel depth and macro sensors. Fairly decent but nothing grand. On the flip side, it has a punch-hole 16-megapixel front camera.
The OPPO Ace 2 comes in three colors: Aurora Silver, Moon Rock Grey, and Fantasy Purple. The 8GB+128GB version retails for a price of CNY3,999 (~Php28,700), while the 8GB+256GB versions costs CNY4,399 (~Php31,600). Meanwhile, the 12GB+256GB version priced at CNY4,599 (~Php33,000).
No word yet on its availability and pricing in the Philippines but we do hope to get the device soon.
