In what’s likely to be the final flagship phone launch of 2022, Oppo has unveiled both the Find N2 and the Find N2 Flip – Oppo’s foldable rivals to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.
That said, while the phones have been unveiled this launch was only for China, so some details of global availability and pricing are yet to be confirmed – though we know at least one of these phones will be sold more widely.
We also don’t yet have a full specs list for the Oppo Find N2 Flip at the time of writing, so the bulk of this article covers the standard Oppo Find N2 for now. But we have some information on the Flip too, and as soon as we learn more about it, we’ll add additional details below.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? The latest foldable Oppo phones
- When is it out? Now in China, early 2023 globally for the Flip
- How much will it cost? Unclear, but expect a high price
Oppo Find N2 release date and price
The Oppo Find N2 series was unveiled on December 15, 2022 at the company’s annual Inno Day event, in China. That launch is only for China, but we know that the Oppo Find N2 Flip will be launching more widely – including in many parts of Europe – in the first quarter of 2023. So in other words sometime between January and the end of March.
However, it doesn’t sound like the Oppo Find N2 will get the same wider roll out, so if you were hoping to be able to buy the company’s Z Fold rival you might be out of luck.
We don’t have pricing details for the Find N2 Flip yet, but leaker @UniverseIce has said it won’t cost more than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which starts at $999.99 / £999 / AU$1,499.
Oppo Find N2 design and display
The Oppo Find N2 Flip looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Motorola Razr (2022), and other clamshell foldable phones. So it has a normal smartphone-sized foldable screen, which when folded shut shrinks the phone down to a compact size.
However, where rival handsets have tiny cover displays, the Oppo Find N2 Flip’s is bigger. Oppo hasn’t said how big, but you can see in the pictures above that it looks a reasonable size, and Oppo claims it’s the biggest yet on this style of phone. It’s big enough for example to display six notifications at once.
Oppo also claims that, thanks to an improved hinge, the Find N2 Flip has an almost invisible crease in its foldable screen.
That’s all Oppo has told us about the Flip so far, but leaks have revealed other possible details.
According to Digital Chat Station, the Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 3.26-inch OLED cover screen, which would make it a lot bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4’s 1.9-inch one. It also apparently has a 6.8-inch 120Hz foldable OLED screen, with a 1080 x 2520 resolution.
The standard Oppo Find N2 looks more like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, with a big 7.1-inch 1792 x 1920 foldable AMOLED display that has a 120Hz refresh rate.
Fold it shut and you can make use of a 5.54-inch 1080 x 2120 AMOLED external display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
The Find N2 has a lightweight design, coming in at just 233g, if you get the black vegan leather finish. It’s also available in green and white Gorilla Glass Victus versions, and those are almost as light, at 237g. For reference, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is 263g.
Oppo Find N2 camera and battery
Oppo hasn’t said anything about the Find N2 Flip’s cameras, other than that they’re ‘flagship-level’. We can also see from imagery that it has a dual-lens camera.
However, according to leaker Digital Chat Station in a Weibo post, the phone has a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide one, and a 32MP front-facing snapper.
As for the battery, we know that’s it’s 4,300mAh – which makes it much bigger than the batteries in other clamshell foldables, and the same source as above claims that it charges at 44W, though that detail hasn’t been confirmed yet.
The standard Oppo Find N2 has a triple-lens camera with a 50MP f/1.8 main sensor, a 48MP f/2.2 ultra-wide one, and a 32MP f/2.0 telephoto one with 2x optical zoom. It also has two 32MP f/2.4 selfie cameras – one on each screen.
Its battery is 4,520mAh, and it charges at 67W, which can get it from zero to 100% in about 42 minutes.
Oppo Find N2 specs and features
The Oppo Find N2 Flip has a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus chipset, which is one of the most powerful chipsets of 2022, but less powerful than the new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 2, which we’re likely to see in a lot of 2023’s phones.
That’s about the only spec we have for it, but we imagine it will run Android 13 with Oppo’s ColorOS 13 interface, since the Oppo Find N2 does.
Speaking of the Oppo Find N2, that has a similarly powerful Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, and comes in two configurations – one with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and the other with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
It also supports 5G, and has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual Dolby Atmos-powered stereo speakers. In all, it sounds like it could be one of the best foldable phones, so it’s a shame only the Flip is likely to go global.
