- OPPO Ace2 announced in China starting at 3,999 CNY (about Rs 41,000)
- This is the first phone from OPPO to support wireless charging
- No word on when or if the device will be launched in India.
OPPO has today announced the Ace 2 smartphone in China dropping the Reno branding, which had been touted for quite some time. It is unclear whether the phone will be launched in India or not but based on the fact that Reno Ace did not launch in the country, the chances of the Ace 2 coming are pretty slim. This is another flagship-grade device from the company after having announced the Find X2 Pro, in the global markets in March.
OPPO Ace 2 pricing and availability
As of right now, the phone has been announced in China and it will start shipping from April 20th in the country. Pricing of the phone starts at 3,999 CNY (about Rs 41,000) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, along with 4,399 CNY (about Rs 45,000) for the 8GB + 256GB variant and 4,599 CNY (about Rs 47,000) for the 12GB + 256GB variant. There is no word on India launch or pricing of the device currently. The OPPO Ace2 is going to be available in Aurora Silver, Moon Rock Grey, and Fantasy Purple colour options.
OPPO Ace 2 specifications
While the Ace 2 isn’t on the flagship standard of the Find X2 Pro, it still boasts incredible specs. Powering the phone is a flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC and there is support for dual-mode 5G. The phone comes with a 6.5-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a punch-hole cutout, an in-display fingerprint sensor for security and Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

Ace 2 support an incredible 40W wireless charging thanks to the “AirVOOC” charging solution
The Ace 2 happens to support an incredible 40W wireless charging thanks to the “AirVOOC” charging solution, putting it on par with the recently launched Huawei P40 Pro, which also boasts of a 40W wireless charging.
In terms of wired charging, Ace 2 supports the same 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging technology that was seen also on the Reno Ace. As far as optics go, the phone has a quad-camera setup with a 48MP main camera along with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and 2MP macro and depth sensors.
