Last week, Oppo began selling its flagship Oppo Find X2 and Oppo Find X2 Pro flagship smartphones in China, with the entire launch batch selling out quickly, and later revealed that the Oppo Find X2 and Oppo Find X2 Pro were actually heavier smartphones. than the manufacturer said during the presentation. Oppo vice president Shen Yiren apologized publicly and also confirmed that those who wish can return the purchased smartphones to stores. The error crept in due to some difference between engineering prototypes and final versions of smartphones.
It is worth noting that in fact the difference turned out to be tiny (from 5 to 13 g), however, there have been plenty of relevant posts on the official forum. Many said that by underestimating the mass of smartphones, the manufacturer deliberately mislead buyers. The standard version of Oppo Find X2 became heavier from 187 to 192 g, the ceramic version did not weigh 196, and 209 Oppo Find X2 became heavier from 207 to 217. Oppo officially announced that the devices received recertification of regulators, so the correct weight has already been indicated on the official website and other sources. Unhappy customers can return their smartphones by March 24. Added: Oppo made a statement about the discrepancy between the data on the weight of the devices:
Last week, a global presentation of the flagship smartphones of the Find X2 line took place. Oppo always considers the opinions of users and pays special attention to its audience. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the delay in updating the data on the technical characteristics of smartphones. The weight of the device, indicated in official sources, was confirmed during the testing of the prototype. To improve performance, we changed the back panel of the battery and part of the smartphone case during the mass production stage, which increased the overall weight and thickness of the device. Updated information on the characteristics of the smartphone will be posted on the OPPO website, as well as all official representatives. Additional information is available on the official Oppo website.
