OPPO has just launched its first foldable flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find N, on the second day of its annual OPPO INNO DAY showcase.
The OPPO Find N has a 7.1-inch inner display and a 5.49-inch outer display with an 8.4:9 aspect ratio. OPPO said the Flexion Hinge on the OPPO Find N brings together 136 components with extreme precision of up to 0.01 mm, ensuring the hinge 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, it said. 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 cam and spring structure inside the advanced Flexion Hinge allows the device to freely stand when unfolded at any angle between 50-120 degrees.
Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 Mobile Platform, OPPO Find N offers up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. A large 4,500 mAh battery offers all-day battery life, while 33W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge is optimized to charge to 55% in 30 minutes and to 100% in 70 minutes. It also comes with 15W AIRVOOC wireless charging (compatible with standard Qi) and 10W reverse wireless charging. The OPPO Find N includes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that is housed in the power button, as well as a dual speaker system and Dolby Atmos support.
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 has been tested, folded over 200,000 times while still maintaining an overall smooth folding experience with next to no crease, according to OPPO.
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 are watching. The inner display also features support for a touch sampling rate of up to 1,000 Hz.
The OPPO Find N is equipped with a flagship-level triple-camera setup including a 50 MP Sony IMX 766 main sensor, a 16 MP ultra-wide lens and a 13 MP telephoto lens, as well as selfie cameras on both the inner and outer displays.
The OPPO Find N comes in three distinctive colors – Black, White and Purple.
No official pricing details or availability was announced but the phone is expected to go on sale in China starting from an estimated price of $1,200.
