After a uncountable number of leaks and teasers, Oppo Ace2 has finally official. The phone retains 90Hz refresh rate screen and 65W wired charging of its predecessor – the Reno Ace, however powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset, has 5G connectivity and the fastest wireless charging around at 40W thanks to the brand new AirVOOC charger.
The Ace2 is built around a 6.5-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. The panel comes with a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner for the 16MP selfie camera.
Around the back, there’s a circular cutout for the quartet of cameras, headlined by a 48MP main shooter. The accompanying modules are an 8MP ultrawide snapper, and two 2MP “potrait cameras”, which is fancy term for depth helpers.
The Snapdragon 865 SoC that powers the device is paired with 8/12GB RAM with the higher capacity being of the LPPDR5 variety and 128/256 UFS 3.0 storage.
The 4,000mAh battery supports 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast wired charging which is plenty fast but what’s more impressive is the 40W AirVOOC wireless charger which Oppo claims can complete a full charge cycle in only 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) and will currently only work with the Ace2.
The software front is covered by Android 10 with ColorOS 7.1 on top. Other notable features include Wi-Fi 6 and NFC and 10W reverse wireless charging.
