OPPO Ace2 x EVA smartphone


The Oppo Ace2 went on sale in China in late April, originally available in three colors. Now Ice Universe has revealed an Evangelion Limited Edition of the phone with some beautiful minimalist decals on the back.

The NERV logo is lifted straight from the show, you can dig through the Fandom wiki for more details. Neon Genesis Evangelion has been around for a long time so there’s a rich backstory. In fact, this phone celebrates the 25th anniversary of the series, which premiered in 1995.

The release of the fourth movie in the “Rebuild of Evangelion” tetralogy has been postponed due to the pandemic, though it’s not clear if that will affect the launch of the limited edition phone. As for price, expect something north of the CNY 4,000 ($565) that the base model costs. How much more is not clear yet.

The Oppo Ace2 remains unchanged below the limited edition exterior. This means the same 6.55” 1080p+ AMOLED with HDR10+ and 90Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 865 chipset, 48MP main and 8MP ultra wide camera. The fast charging support is perhaps the most impressive part: 65W wired, 40W wireless (the charging pad is sold separately) and 10W reverse wireless, all tapping into the 4,000mAh battery.

Building Internet-connected things seems obvious today, but what about when there’s no Internet?

 The concept often feels like something out of a science fiction movie or a doomsday prepper’s handbook- and while this device can work in both scenarios, it’s also about understanding resiliency for your projects and being a good steward of the systems in place today.

I’ve been posting the progress of this project on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook all month, and this is my full build log of the project. You’ll find the parts list at the bottom of this article. They are affiliate links that help me make more cool stuff, and by using them you don’t pay any more than usual- so thank you for supporting my projects, even just a little bit.
