OPPO has today released its much anticipated Find X2 Series in all its glory, adding an entry variation – the Find X2 Lite – to complete the brand’s first 5G offering in New Zealand.
The news comes just as the company has signed on major network carrier Vodafone as a partner, with both Find X2 models (Lite and Pro) available soon at Vodafone stores across the country.
The X2 Series is the latest ideation of OPPO’s renowned Find flagship Series, known for its pioneering and innovative spirit.

At $799, the Find X2 Lite is currently the most affordable 5G smartphone on the market, and it’s jam packed with cutting-edge technology.
With a Snapdragon 765G 5G chipset, outstanding camera and video capabilities, the Find X2 Lite is a serious contender for Kiwis looking to unleash the era of 5G. Its lightning-fast VOOC charging, sleek look and shiny feel, makes the X2 Lite a must-have.
“We’re on the cusp of the next explosion of streaming, gaming, browsing, and the proliferation of more everyday uses of smartphones, as 5G makes its way to New Zealand’s streets,” says Morgan Halim, OPPO New Zealand Managing Director.
“With its features mirroring the industry-leading X2 Pro device, the X2 Lite offers a superb experience. And its sub $800 price point means more Kiwis can access 5G and the latest smartphone technology to enhance their daily lives,” says Halim.
