OPPO Find N Unveiled, Featuring a Sleek Foldable Design and Creaseless Display

OPPO Find N, their first foldable flagship, dropped on schedule today. It was unveiled at the Oppo INNO Day event, and it’s designed to compete directly with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3. It has the same form factor as the Fold, except it’s more refined and polished. 

The OPPO Find N has been in the making since 2018 because Oppo cycled through several prototype iterations. Its basic premise is nothing groundbreaking — three Samsung Folds and two Huawei Mate X have already introduced it. But where the Oppo Find N shines is the maturity and polish it brings to this design layout. 

The Oppo Find N has no visible crease running above the hinge, for starters. Other phone-makers have struggled to eliminate the unsightly folds on their flexible screens. It’s all thanks to the teardrop ‘Flexion’ hinge. It’s an intricate piece of engineering that not only makes the creaseless apparent but also removes the gap in the screen when it’s folded shut. Overall, it’s a very streamlined experience, especially for a first-gen product. The years of R&D seem to have paid off.

The Oppo Find N also supports the ‘Flex’ mode, which Samsung has popularized over the years. You can affix the foldable at any angle between 50 and 120 degrees. It serves as a built-in tripod for video calling, selfies, or long exposure photography.

Unfold the Oppo Find N to meet its 7.1” LTPO OLED panel that dynamically adjusts the refresh rate between 1 and 120Hz. Plus, it hits 1000 nits of peak brightness. The flexible ‘ultra-thin glass’ used for this screen is also thinner than any other on the market. The aspect ratio on the inner display is wider than Galaxy Fold’s, giving it a more tablet-like feel.

The same goes for the cover display on the new foldable Oppo mobile, which is more compact (5.49”) and wide. In contrast to the narrow, unusual aspect ratio of the Z Fold 3, the cover screen here is ergonomic. Note, however, that the refresh rate on the secondary display is capped at 60Hz.

At its heart, the Find N has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, 12GB of memory, and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. 33W wired and 15W wireless charging power the 4500 mAh battery inside the device. Oppo has also integrated simple and effective gestures into the UI to make it more user-friendly. 

Of the five cameras on board, three are arranged inside a raised platform on the back and one inside each screen. The triple camera is a cluster of 40MP wide, 16MP ultra-wide, and 13 telephoto lenses. The selfie cameras have 32MP sensors behind them.

Oppo Find N comes in Black, Ceramic White, and gradient purple finishes. And it’s priced lower than Samsung’s latest Z Fold 3. The baseline 8GB+256GB edition starts from 7,699 Yuan (~ Rs. 215,400.) The fully specced out Find N costs 8,999 Yuan (~ Rs. 251,800.)
