Oppo introduced today the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro flagships with respective price tags of €999 and €1,199. Michael Tran, Head of Strategy & Product Marketing of Oppo Western Europe hosted the online event, where he said the phones will be globally available in “early May”.
However it turns out we won't need to wait that long. After the launch we had a Q&A session with Bingo Luo, Product Manager of Oppo Find X2 series, who confirmed the phone will arrive on March 13 in several countries and will be available both with retailers and through carriers, and he specifically mentioned telecoms like Orange, T-Mobile, Telefonica.
In fact, the Oppo Find X2 and Oppo Find X2 Pro are currently available for pre-order in the Netherlands. T-Mobile offers the phones on contract asking EUR996 with virtually any plan.
If you don’t want to sign up a contract with a carrier, the Dutch retailer MediaMarkt has both phones available for purchase, with shipping scheduled for next Friday. It also has some devices at key offline stores, Dutch media revealed.
Another market where the Find X2 smartphones are available is China - JD.com is offering them either with or without a carrier contract, and the Find X2 is even offered in a version unavailable anywhere else - with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
