After a month of constant leaks and teasers, Oppo’s Ace2 is finally official. It retains the 90Hz refresh rate screen and 65W wired charging of its predecessor – the Reno Ace but brings the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset, 5G connectivity and the fastest wireless charging around at 40W thanks to the brand new AirVOOC charger.
The Ace2 sports a 6.5-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution, 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.
Jumping to the back we find 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 "portrait cameras", which is a fancy term for depth helpers.
Under the hood, the Snapdragon 865 SoC 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).
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.
The Oppo Ace2 will come in purple, grey and silver colors with a starting price of CNY 3,999 ($565) for the 8/128GB model. There’s also an 8/256GB variant for CNY 4,399 ($625) and a top of the line 12/256GB trim for CNY4,599($650). Pre-orders are already underway while official sales start on April 20. International availability details aren't confirmed yet.
