The result of four years of research and development, OPPO has launched its foldable flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find N.
You will have noticed that phones just keep getting bigger and bigger. It’s no wonder really when you think about how reliant on smartphones we’ve become but there’s a certain point when you’re just trying to stuff a tablet into your skyrocket and that’s when phone makers have to think out of the box. Adding to the foray of foldable phones is OPPO’s new Find N.
Combining cutting-edge technology with an improved foldable experience, the Find N features an intuitive and immersive 7.1-inch landscape display when unfolded and a 5.49-inch outer display.
With an 8.4:9 aspect ratio, the inner display unfolds directly into landscape mode so users can watch videos, play games or even read e-books without the extra step of rotating the device. When folded, the 18:9 aspect ratio gives users a full, familiar smartphone experience with a display that is easy to use with one hand.
Enhancing this experience is the Flexion Hinge, which combines 136 components with extreme precision of up to 0.01 mm, ensuring a hinge that works as smoothly as the joints in the human body. OPPO’s unique water-drop hinge design solves some of the biggest pain points in foldable devices by widening the angle of the fold in the display and offering a buffer when the display folds, resulting in a minimal crease that is up to 80% less noticeable compared with other devices. This design also practically eliminates the gap between displays when folded, offering a more integrated look and better protecting the inner display from scratches.
The hinge also allows the device to freely stand when unfolded at any angle between 50-120 degrees, allowing users the flexibility to adapt the device to a wide range of usage scenarios. For example, the Find N can serve as its own tripod, making 4K HD time-lapse imaging and video calling a breeze.
OPPO’s custom 12-layer Serene Display offers excellent protection and durability and works with the Flexion Hinge for a smooth foldable experience. The display includes a 0.03 mm layer of Flexion UTG (ultra-thin glass), compared to 0.6 mm for regular smartphone glass, allowing it to easily bend while providing strong durability. The Serene Display is also very reliable, with the ability to be folded over 200,000 times while still maintaining an overall smooth folding experience with next to no crease.
The inner screen uses an LTPO display with smart dynamic refresh rate technology that adapts the refresh rate anywhere between 1-120 Hz based on the content you’re watching. Both screens provide 10,240 automatic brightness levels, ensuring user comfort in all kinds of complex lighting environments, with a peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits.
Other fun features include a series of new gestures that make side-by-side multitasking easier; new keyboard customisations for the inner display; a triple camera set up that includes a 50MP Sony IMX 766 main sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, and a 13MP telephoto lens; three templates for time-lapses; and a 3D-curved design to improve the hand feel.
The OPPO Find N, which comes in three colours (black, white, and purple), also features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Mobile Platform, together with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and a large 4,500 mAh battery that offers all-day battery life. Also lookout for the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is housed in the power button, as well as the dual speaker system and Dolby Atmos support which deliver more lifelike sound.
