This year marks the 25th anniversary of Hideaki Anno’s ground-breaking anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. And along original anime getting a run on Netflix and a new movie coming out this year, Eva fans are being spoilt silly.

And now Oppo is here to upset me I mean them even further, with company releasing the Oppo Reno Ace 2 EVA Limited Edition up for grabs in China. But most reports say that the number available will be extremely limited.

And everything screams Neon Genesis Evangelion at you.

The box and case are reminiscent of something from NERV and even the SIM card removal tool is a mini, shorter-handled Spear of Longinus. And as you can see, even the phone’s interface has had a facelift.  

Additionally, Oppo is also releasing an Asuka Langley Soryu-themed Oppo Watch, a Rei Ayanami themed Enco W31 true wireless earbuds, and an EVA-themed wireless charging pad. Each can be bought separately with the phone or as a complete set.

In terms of specs though, the Limited Edition is the same as Oppo Ace 2’s, with 4,000mAh battery that can be charged by the Evangelion themed 40W "AirVOOC" wireless charging system in slightly under an hour. The 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charges the same battery in just 30 minutes.

Other specs include Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 5G connectivity, OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a hole-punch front-facing camera, only 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage space, and a rear triple-lens system (48MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 2-megapixels macro) with depth sensors.

This isn't the first anime-inspired phone. Neither is it even the first Neon Genesis Evangelion inspired phone. This beauty came out eight years ago.
