Samsung has been dominating the foldable market since it released the original Galaxy Z Fold, and although we’ve come a long way from that, more and more competitors have entered the market as well. With Oppo finally announcing the Oppo Find N2 and Find N2 Flip, two separate phones that are built on the same foundation, and with the same goal – to give away the best that Samsung has to offer, and apparently other companies too.
The Oppo Find N2 and Find N2 Flip are excellent foldable phones that you can’t buy just yet
The Oppo Find N2 and Find N2 Flip are the second-generation foldable phones from Oppo; Using the foundation to make excellent hardware.
The Oppo Find N2 ditches the usual form factor we see with foldable phones and opts for a more compact device that looks more like a passport or a book. The phone looks good, there’s no denying that.
Unfortunately, the phone will run on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, 12GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. You’ll also get a 4,250mAh battery, along with 67W fast charging. The exterior of the phone is nicely refined, has a matte finish on all sides and looks really good. Oppo has done a great job keeping the phone’s weight down at just 233g, which is slightly heavier than the Galaxy S22 Ultra but also smaller.
Oppo Find N2 comes with a 5.54-inch external AMOLED display that hits a refresh rate of 120Hz with an aspect ratio of 17.7:9, being shorter and wider than some competitors. Moving on to the internal display, you are greeted by a 7.1 inch AMOLED LTPO display with 120Hz refresh rate but lower resolution. Oppo talked about how it’s given the Find N2 and Find N2 Flip a “Flexion Hinge” which should result in better hinge quality, less creases, and better overall performance over previous phones and the competition.
Moving on to the optics, the Oppo Find N2 comes with a 50MP IMX890 main camera, a 48MP ultrawide camera, and a 32MP 2x telephoto camera. Both cameras on the front are 32MP sensors.
For those interested, the Oppo Find N2 will be available in black, green and white renders. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the phone is a China-only exclusive and there are no current plans to bring the phone to China. The company also didn’t give a tentative release date, but we’re guessing it will come out sometime next year.
If the Oppo Find N2 is not your cup of tea, you can take a look at the cheaper Oppo Find N2 Flip. This phone will be launched globally and will be launched in early 2023. You can call it the Galaxy Z Flip 4 on steroids, we’ll get into that in a bit.
Find N2 Flip will offer a 3.26-inch external screen and a 6.8-inch internal screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. Oppo claims that the crease has been significantly reduced.
We also got a few more details from Oppo starting with the fact that you’ll get a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus chipset with a MariSilicon X imaging chip, a 4,300mAh battery, 44W wired charging, and the same hinge as its foldable sibling. The main camera is a 50MP sensor, and the front camera is 32MP. There is another camera on the back but Oppo did not disclose the details. Our guess is that you’re looking at an ultrawide sensor.
Both foldable devices will be launched exclusively in China for now with the flip variant making its way to the global market at an unspecified time.
