Oppo announces the N2 and N2 Flip foldable phones

The first one boasted a “creaseless” experience. For sure the second generation improves on that

The second-generation folding phones from Oppo are here, and this includes the clamshell type. The first Find N promised a creaseless experience, that, when folded or unfolded, you will barely see it.

Oppo Find N2

The Find N2 continues on from its predecessor and has similar features, including Hasselblad cameras. Folded, you will see a 5.54in. FHD+ AMOLED (2120x1080px) outer screen. When unfolded, it will look similar to a 7.1in. FHD+ AMOLED (1792x1080px) tablet (inner display). Both of these screens have a 120Hz refresh rate, DCI-P3, 100% sRGB colour gamut, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection

As a flagship, it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset based on a 4nm TSMC process. This comes along with 12 or 16GB RAM and storage options between 256 and 512GB UFS 3.1 respectively.

There are three fully-functioning rear cameras at the back. The primary camera is a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, the other is a 48MP IMX581 ultrawide, and finally, a 32MP RGBW IMX709 telephoto camera. The inner display also features a 32MP camera. These three cameras have improved performance thanks to the MariSilicon X NPU that’s built-in inside the foldable phone, as well as Hasselblad colour calibration.

The phone runs ColorOS 13 based on Android 13. It comes with a 4520mAh battery with 67W fast charging. Oppo did not mention any wireless charging capabilities. It has a USB-C port and supports 5G signals.

The phone comes in green, white, or black. Prices in China start at CNY 7,999 (~Php 63.4K) for the 12/256 configuration. Meanwhile, the 16/512 configuration starts at CNY 8,999 (~Php 71.3K). It is now ready for pre-orders while open sales start on December 23.

Oppo Find N2 Flip

Ever since Samsung started rebooting flip phones to a modern era, every manufacturer wanted to get a piece of that cake. This is Oppo’s rendition of the modern flip phone, and once again, it comes with a beautiful metallic-like premium design.

The inner display is a 6.8in. Samsung E6 AMOLED screen (2520x1080px) with 120Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the smaller complementary cover screen is a vertically-aligned 3.26in. HD+ display (720x320px) also made of AMOLED. This only has a standard 60Hz refresh rate. Oppo claims to have used a drop-shaped hinge so that creases are far less visible compared to competing brands.

Instead of a Qualcomm chip, Oppo instead opted for a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset. And to be fair, you cannot really customize the phone or unlock the bootloader, so there’s really no need for you to worry about its locked coding, Oppo does not allow it anyway. The phone comes with 8, 12, or 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and a choice between 256 or 512GB internal storage.

There are only two cameras at the back now, three in total, including the inner 32MP RGBW sensor retained from the N2. The primary camera is still the 50MP IMX890 but the ultrawide has been downgraded to just 8MP.

There is a slightly smaller 4300mAh battery inside and a slightly slower 44W fast charging versus the N2. Like the N2, it runs Android 13 with ColorOS 13 on top. It comes with Dolby Atmos audio, 5G services, NFC, and dual-band Wi-Fi.

It comes in purple, black, and gold. In China, it’s now available for pre-orders. Price starts at CNY 5,999 (~Php 47.5K) while the highest-end 16/512 is priced at CNY 6,999 (~Php 55.5K). Open sales start on December 30th.
