OPPO swamps Australian market with 5G phones for all pockets

Chinese smartphone maker OPPO has put three new 5G models on sale from Tuesday, one of which was announced in March. The company's Find X2 series launched its premium model, the Find X2 Pro ($1599) at that time, and has added the Find X2 Neo ($999) and the Find X2 Lite ($749).

[The last-named is competitively priced against its own stablemate, the realme X50 Pro 5G, which is yet to launch locally. Based on US dollar prices, it is expected to sell for about $810.]

In one stroke, thus, the company has ramped up the number of 5G smartphones available to Australian consumers, with four coming from its ranks; the OPPO Reno 5G 10x Zoom was released last year. An LG model and two Samsung models make up the remainder and it looks like the market is slowly getting into gear to take advantage of the new technology.

The Neo and Lite have Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processors and are thus both 5G future-proof. The Pro has a 865 5G CPU. All three have AMOLED displays, ranging from 6.7" (Pro) and 6.5" (Neo) to 6.4" (Lite).

There is no extension storage slot nor a second SIM; if truth be told, there is no need for such features given the riches on display. The Pro has 512GB storage and 12GB memory, the Neo has 256GB of storage and 12GB memory while the Lite has 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. The comparison of the three can be seen in the chart below.

"With the announcement of the wider Find X2 Series, we are continuing to set a new standard for smartphones as Australia delves into the 5G era and consumers expect more from their smartphones for less," said OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran.

"The Find X2 Pro, Neo and Lite devices all offer a premium smartphone experience to suit various consumers' wants and needs.

"As we continue to pioneer leading technology advancements, in a time where the 5G network matures and its adoption increases, the smartphone will become even more important in our daily lives.

"With many features mirroring the industry-leading X2 Pro device, the X2 Lite offers a superb experience - and at its sub $800 price point, more Aussies have the chance to access 5G and the latest smartphone technology to enhance their daily lives."

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
