Oppo has just unveiled its latest generation of foldable smartphones in its home country of China. The two new foldable phones include the Oppo Find N2 and the Find N2 Flip. The former is a direct successor to the original Find N, while the latter is a new Flip model.

Oppo Find N2 Unveiled

The original Oppo Find N was well received by fans of foldables but was thicker and weightier – it was chunkier than the larger Galaxy Z Fold4. The newly introduced Oppo Find N2 has addressed these concerns with the second-generation model while also improving the cover display.

The new are many more improvements too, but before we dive into the details, we should mention that Oppo is also introducing its first flip foldable today – you don’t want to miss this one as it is getting an international release.

The Oppo Find N2 is a tad narrower than its predecessor at 72.6mm when closed (down from 73mm). More importantly, the device now weighs just 233g thanks in large part to an improved hinge design. Also, thickness is 14.6mm when closed and 7.4mm when opened (down from 15.9mm and 8.0mm).

The anodized metal frame comes in three styles – matte white and a minty green (these have glass backs and weigh a bit more, 237g) and a black option with vegan leather covering the back.

The second-generation Flexion hinge has been greatly improved. First, it has fewer parts – 100, down from 138. Second, it uses advanced materials like carbon fiber and a high-strength alloy. All of this helps bring down the weight of the phone.

The new hinge design also shrinks the crease by 67% and that makes it less visible. The hinge can hold any angle between 45° and 125°, which has several use cases, but we’ll get to those.

The cover display has been reworked. It is still roughly the same size; however, the aspect ratio is slightly squatter at 17.7:9 (instead of 18:9). Even so, the phone is narrower than its predecessor because Oppo trimmed down the bezels. The 5.54” cover display now also supports 120Hz refresh rate. It is also very bright, peaking at 1,350nits and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.

The internal display has the same dimensions, 7.1” and a squarish 9.6:9 aspect. This one is an LTPO panel, so its refresh rate can vary between 1Hz and 120Hz. Both displays have 480Hz touch sampling rate. The display is even brighter than the cover one with a peak of 1,550nits.

Also, Oppo layered an anti-reflection film on the display to improve screen legibility in bright ambient light conditions even at lower brightness settings. Both displays support HDR10+ and use color sensors to adjust their imagery according to lighting conditions.

Like its predecessor, the Oppo Find N2 offers a triple camera as well as two selfie cameras. The main module was upgraded to a Sony IMX890, a 50MP 1/1.56” sensor, which sits behind an f/1.8 24mm lens with OIS. This replaces the same sized IMX766.

The ultrawide camera got an even bigger upgrade with the 48MP IMX581 1/2” sensor, behind an f/2.2 14mm lens. As a reminder, the original Find N had a 16MP 1/3.09” sensor.

Then there’s the telephoto camera, which made the switch to the 32MP IMX709 sensor (1/2.74”, up from 13MP 1/3.4”). In case you don’t recognize the model number, this sensor has an RGBW filter that allows it to collect more light. Even better, it is paired with a brighter f/2.0 aperture (the Find N had a 13MP f/2.4 tele camera). The focal length is on the short side, at 47mm it is shorter than the previous model (52mm). Still, maybe the upgrades are enough to avoid the issue of the original Find N, which switched to upscaling images from the main camera in the dark.

There are two identical selfie cameras – one on the cover display, one inside – both with 32MP sensors.

The camera system is powered by MariSilicon X and was co-developed with Hasselblad. The Professional mode uses algorithms to match the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution featured on the namesake cameras. The Xpan mode is inspired by the eponymous panorama camera, which used 35mm film but shot in a wide aspect ratio and its photos spanned 65mm. Fittingly, Xpan mode takes panoramic photos with a wide 65:24 aspect ratio.

The hinge allows for some creative angles – you can shoot from waist level, for example, looking down at the phone, similar to a Hasselblad camera with a waist level finder. You can even put the phone on the ground and use the hinged design as a sort of tripod.

Oppo improved the charging system, which is now rated at 67W and promises to hit 37% in 10 minutes and to complete a full charge in 42 minutes (the old system needed 70 minutes to get to 100%). However, wireless charging has been dropped. The battery capacity is effectively the same at 4,520mAh.

Like its predecessor, the Find N2 is a step behind the current chipset generation and uses the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. It is paired with 12GB or 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone comes with Android 13 and ColorOS 13 out of the box.
