Oppo Find N2 and Find N2 Flip, Oppo’s new foldables that rival the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4

Oppo has launched today the second generation of its folding mobile, although instead of arriving with a single model as the brand did in 2022, it comes with two variants of folding: the Oppo Find N2 with a book format, and the Oppo Find N2 Flip with a shell-like fold.

Oppo celebrates the INNO Days 2022 these days, at which time the brand brings to light some of the technologies that it has developed during 2022 and that already have a sufficient level of maturity to reach the market in 2023.

One of the most anticipated announcements of the day has been the official presentation of the new batch of foldable phones from the Find N series , which push the limits of the foldable smartphone experience, providing a thinner design and a feeling of lightness in hand, a nearly invisible crease, and industry-leading performance.

The Oppo Find N2 is the evolution of the company’s first foldable phone, the Oppo Find N, which we were able to review, but it didn’t make it to Western markets. For its part, the Oppo Find N2 Flip is the company’s first foldable car-style smartphone and is presented as the main rival to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

Both foldables will be launched in the Chinese market after their presentation at INNO Day 2022, but for the moment the only model that has been confirmed to reach western markets will be the Oppo Find N2 Flip, which is estimated to arrive at the end of the first quarter of 2023.

Oppo Find N2 Flip, a new rival for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Motorola Razr 2

The Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 3.26-inch external screen in vertical format, which allows users to see up to six notifications at once and easily preview photos captured by its camera system. In the analysis of the Motorola Razr 2022, we already anticipated that this concept of an external screen would set a trend and here we have the first samples of it.

When unfolding it, we find a 6.8-inch AMOLED internal screen with an aspect ratio of 21:9 with a variable refresh rate between 60 and 120 Hz . All this in a phone that weighs only 199 grams .

As for performance, inside it mounts a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset specifically tuned by the manufacturer for this model in order to improve energy consumption. The Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 4,300 mAh battery and 44W fast charging with the charger included in the box.

The Find N2 Flip packs a 50-megapixel Sony IMX 890 dual rear camera, while the 30-megapixel front-facing camera is hole-punched on the inner screen and has an autofocus function.

Like its big brother, the Find N2 Flip arrives with ColorOS 13 running on Android 13 and features specific to folding screens.

The Oppo Find N2 Flip will be officially launched in China today, and will hit global markets , including most European countries and Spain, by the end of Q1 2023 in three colors: purple, gold and black.

The Oppo Find N2 is the successor to what was the first Oppo folding mobile presented at this same event last year. One of the strengths of the new generation is found in the smaller, thinner and stronger second generation Flexion Hinge hinge system for the Oppo Find N2.

This new hinge not only eliminates 76% of the visible crease on the screen, but also makes it imperceptible to the touch by being 67% narrower , while reducing the weight of the assembly and leaving no gap between the two faces when folded.

The incorporation of carbon fiber as a support under the interior screen of the Oppo Find N2 further reduces weight and makes it more resistant, withstanding up to 400,000 folds.

The Oppo Find N2 measures only 14.6 mm thick when folded and weighs only 233 grams, making it one of the lightest on the market, even more than some conventional flagships despite the extra weight that the hinge entails. .

This lightness is possible thanks to the use of carbon fiber and high-resistance alloys used in the aeronautical industry, with which the 100 elements that make up this hinge have been manufactured, 36 elements less than the previous generation, adding IPX4 certification against dust and water for both the Find N2 and the Find N2 Flip.

The Find N2 outer screen is a 5.54-inch AMOLED and reaches 1,350 nits of maximum brightness, while the inner screen is a 7.1-inch AMOLED with a maximum brightness of 1,550 nits of maximum brightness and a refresh rate of 120hz . In addition, it incorporates an anti-reflective film that improves visibility outdoors.

Inside is a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor with 5G support, a 4,520 mAh battery and 67 W SUPERVOOC fast charging .

The Oppo Find N2 is very well equipped in the photographic section with a 50 Mpx Sony IMX890 main camera , accompanied by a 48 Mpx ultra-wide angle with macro functions, and a 2X telephoto with a 32 Mpx RGBW sensor that reduces noise . and improves portraits and zoom. All this with color science fine-tuned by Hasselblad and supported by MariSilicon X.

The Oppo Find N2 arrives with ColorOS 13 running on Android 13 . This operating system makes it possible to better adapt to the new folding format, allowing better use of the particularities of the format. For example, you can capture only half of the screen by swiping 3 fingers.
