We adored the length and breadth of the original Oppo Find N, but we were less happy with its thickness and especially its weight; it was chunkier than the Galaxy Z Fold4, which was significantly larger. With the second generation of this model, Oppo has solved these difficulties and also improved the cover display.
There are also a great number of other enhancements, but before we get into the specifics, it is important to point out that Oppo is also unveiling its first flip foldable today. This is an opportunity that you won’t want to pass up because it is getting released all over the world.
Oppo Find N2
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, the 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 Flexion hinge of the second generation offers significant advancements over its predecessor. To begin, there are 100 components, as opposed to 138 in the previous version. Second, it makes use of modern materials such as carbon fiber and an alloy that has high strength. All of these factors contribute to the phone having a lighter overall weight.
Because to the revised design of the hinge, the crease has been reduced in size by 67%, making it less obvious. The hinge has the ability to hold any angle between 45 degrees and 125 degrees, which has a variety of applications, but we’ll get to those in a little.
The presentation on the cover has been improved. It is still nearly the same size, but the aspect ratio has been changed to 17.7:9, making it slightly more square (instead of 18:9). In spite of this, Oppo was able to make the phone thinner than its predecessor by reducing the size of the bezels. Additionally, the 5.54-inch cover display now supports a refresh rate of 120Hz. Additionally, it is extremely brilliant, reaching a maximum of 1,350 nits, and it is shielded by Gorilla Glass Victus.
The proportions of the internal display are the same, coming in at 7.1 inches, and it has an aspect ratio of 9.6:9. Due to the fact that it is an LTPO panel, the refresh rate of this one can go anywhere from 1Hz to 120Hz. The touch sampling rate is 480Hz across both panels. The display has a maximum luminance of 1,550 nits, making it even more luminous than the one on the cover.
In addition, Oppo added a layer of anti-reflective material to the display, which makes it easier to read the screen in environments with bright ambient light, even when the brightness level is turned down. Both displays are HDR10+ compatible and have color sensors that allow them to adapt their imagery to the prevailing 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 upgraded its sensor to a 32-megapixel IMX709 chip (with a 1/2.74-inch size rather than a 13-megapixel 1/3.4-inch one). In the event that you are unable to identify the model number, the fact that this sensor contains an RGBW filter enables it to capture more light. The Find N had a 13MP telephoto camera with an f/2.4 aperture, but this one has a brighter f/2.0 aperture, making it even better. The focal length is relatively short, coming in at 47 millimetres, which is lower than the one found on the previous model (52mm). However, it is possible that the improvements are sufficient to circumvent the problem that was present in the first generation of the Find N, which automatically switched to upscaling images captured by the primary camera when the lighting conditions were dim.
One is located on the cover display, while the other is located on the front of the device; both of these cameras have 32-megapixel sensors.
MariSilicon X serves as the engine that drives the camera system, which was created in collaboration with Hasselblad. The Hasselblad Natural Color Solution, which is featured on the namesake cameras, is replicated through the application of algorithms in the Professional mode. The eponymous panorama camera, which used 35mm film but shot in a wide aspect ratio and covered 65mm in its photographs, served as the inspiration for the Xpan mode on the X-T2. In keeping with its name, the Xpan mode captures photographs with a wide aspect ratio of 65:24.
You can shoot from waist level, for example, gazing down at the phone, in a manner that is analogous to using a Hasselblad camera with a waist-level finder. The hinge enables some unique shooting angles. You can even lay the phone flat on the ground and utilize the hinged construction as a makeshift tripod to hold it steady.
Oppo has made improvements to the charging system, which is now rated at 67W and promises to reach 37% in 10 minutes and to complete a full charge in 42 minutes (whereas the previous system required 70 minutes to reach 100%). However, there is no longer support for wireless charging. The capacity of the battery has been maintained at the same level of 4,520mAh.
The Find N2, like its predecessor, utilizes the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 as its chipset, which places it one generation behind the current standard. It comes with either 12 or 16 gigabytes of LPDDR5 RAM, as well as either 256 or 512 gigabytes of UFS 3.1 storage. Both Android 13 and ColorOS 13 are pre-installed on the device when it is purchased.
The Oppo Find N2 will be available for purchase in China in the near future; however, there is currently no information regarding a wider release. Be sure to check back soon for an in-depth analysis of the Find N2 since we have one here at the office. In the meantime, here are the costs for China, where reservation services will begin today. We have included straight currency conversions for foreign markets; however, these do not take into account any additional taxes; therefore, you should view them more as a recommendation.

Oppo Find N2 Flip
The Oppo Find N2 Flip is the first foldable device of its type that the firm has produced. The Galaxy Z Flip and the Moto RAZR 2022 are its most obvious competitors, and this one sticks out thanks to its rather large 3.62-inch cover display (a 60Hz OLED panel, 382 x 720px). This can be put to a variety of different functions, such as taking selfies or displaying QR codes, monitoring the weather or adjusting various settings.
When unfolded, the 6.8-inch internal AMOLED panel operates at 120Hz measures. This LTPO display has a high refresh rate of 1-120 Hz, and it is extremely bright, with a maximum of 1,600 nits. It also supports HDR10+ and provides 97% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
In contrast to the Find N2, this one utilises the Dimensity 9000+ chipset as its primary processing unit. You have the option of selecting from the following three configurations: 8/256GB, 12/256GB, and 16/512GB (this is LPDDR5/UFS 3.1).
The camera configuration has been scaled back to include a 50MP primary module with the same IMX890 1/1.56″ sensor as well as an 8MP ultrawide unit with an IMX355 angle of view. As is customary with flip phones, there is not a telephoto lens included inside the device. On the internal display is a 32-megapixel camera for taking selfies; however, because the cover display is so large, you may also use the primary camera. Image processing is taken care of by the MariSilicon X chip that is integrated into the board.
This phone features the largest battery of any flip phone to date, measuring 4,300 mAh, and because of its 44W charging capability, it is also the quickest to top off its charge. In comparison, the battery capacity of the Galaxy Z Flip4 is 3,700mAh and it can be charged at either 25W or 15W wirelessly, while the battery capacity of the Razr 2022 is 3,500mAh and it can only be cable charged at 30W. The charging process for the Oppo may reach 34% in just 15 minutes, however, it takes practically an entire hour to reach 100%.
There is no IP rating for the product’s resistance to dust or water. Additionally, the external panels of the Find N2 Flip are made of the more mature Gorilla Glass 5 material. When it is folded up, the phone has a thickness of 16 millimeters and weighs 191 grams (it closes without a gap, just like the other Find N models).
You should have been able to tell from the introductory paragraphs that the Oppo Find N2 Flip is scheduled for a worldwide release; the other information will be made available at a later time. However, we do have the prices for China (in addition to a direct currency translation for your reference; however, this does not take into account any additional taxes). The first day for making reservations in China has arrived.
