Oppo launched the OPPO Find N on the second day of their annual OPPO INNO DAY showcase.
The Find N is OPPO’s take on the foldable phone.
New form factors are ushering in an exciting new time in smartphone technology.
OPPO has invested a significant amount of time and effort into coming up with a better approach to a foldable smartphone, experimenting with a range of form factors, hinge designs, display materials and aspect ratios, to create a new device that meets the needs of more users.
With the OPPO Find N, we aim to change people’s perceptions about what a smartphone can offer and begin making foldable devices more accessible to an even larger audience.Pete Lau, Chief Product Officer of OPPO
OPPO set out to create an improved display experience with the Find N.
The Find N has a 7.1-in main display with an 8.4:9 aspect ratio. The square-ish screen means users wont need to turn the phone 90 degrees to watch videos in full screen.
The 5.9-in cover display has an 18:9 aspect ratio which offers users the traditional smartphone experience.
The main screen features variable refresh rate up to 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 1000Hz with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
The high touch sampling and refresh rate is good for gaming and content consumption because the screen will give users faster response times, and give a smooth video experience.
OPPO’s Find N has a split screen feature which lets users split the screen in half, have screen-in-screen view and have multiple split screens that allows users to run multiple apps in one go.
This feature is made for those who wants to be productive with the device.
The display also features a 12 layer Serene Display which offers users better protection and durability.
According to TUV, OPPO’s Flexion Hinge on the Find N has a water drop design that widens the angle of the fold which offers a buffer zone that keeps the main screen crease less noticeable.
The new design is claimed to eliminate the gap between the screen when folded, offering better protection to the main display.
The Flexion Hinge allows the device to unfold between 50-120 degrees.
According to the company, the display has been fold tested for over 200,000 times while maintaining a smooth folding experience with no crease and was verified by TUV.
OPPO says FlexForm Mode gives users the freedom to adapt the device to a wide range usage.
The feature has been integrated in Music, Note and Camera apps.
Users can use the phone as its own tripod to record time-lapse videos, better hands-free video call experience and even convert the phone to a mini laptop to take notes.
The Find N has a 50MP main camera with a Sony IMX 766 sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide lens and a 13MP telephoto lens.
There are also front facing cameras in the main screen and the cover display.
The phone supports video up to 4K at 60fps and 240fps at 1080p, which is more than enough for vlogging, TikToks and family videos.
When bent at a 60 degree angle the screen automatically gives users an image preview at the bottom display making it easy to get the perfect shot.
The new split-camera interface gives users the main display to take photos on one side and view, share or delete the photo on the other.
When unfolded users can use both displays so the subject and the user can have a preview of the shot at the same time.
Users can also use the rear camera to take high quality selfies and vlogs using the cover screen as a preview screen.
The Tech specs
The Find N has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Mobile chip with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB storage under the hood.
All this is powered by a 4,500mAh battery which supports OPPO’s 33W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge that can bring the phone up to a full charge in 70 minutes. So users wont need to be plugged in to enjoy their content.
The Find N also supports the 15W AIRVOOC wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging.
It also features a Dolby Atmos dual speaker system that delivers a surround sound experience.
The phone comes in three colourways; Black, White and Purple.
OPPO has yet to release any information regarding the suggested price or when the phone will reach Malaysian shores.
