It also comes with a secondary screen that can do more than what you could ask for. Pretty neat huh
Ever since Samsung popularized the concept of the folding phone, everyone living in grandma’s house has been doing the same and is trying to outcompete each other. These clamshell folding phones are basically a modernized version of flip phones. Except well, you probably can’t do the “flippy” as with a flip phone can.
The Oppo Find N series is the company’s experimental flagship phones which mainly includes foldable phones. Their first one is a tablet type like the Samsung Galaxy Z Folds. The second-generation comes in two flavours: tablet type and clamshell. We’re taking a look at the clamshell type.
The Find N2 and N2 Flip were previously released first in China. The global version of the N2 Flip isn’t much different, except of course, this has Google services. During the Chinese keynotes, Oppo claimed the device stood the test of time as it had rigorous testing. It was folded over 400,000 times and thanks to the company’s waterdrop hinge design, the crease is far less pronounced (only about 0.15mm thick).
The phone’s main competitor is, of course, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. Just like that phone, Oppo is committing 4 years of major Android upgrades and 5 years worth of security updates for the N2 Flip. This is also pretty close to Google’s Pixel line.
Just like the Chinese edition, the global variant has a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ at the helm and also is equipped with Hasselblad-enhanced cameras. The primary shooter is the flagship 50MP Sony IMX890 with OIS. The other camera is sadly just the typical 8MP ultrawide. It comes with a secondary screen as well which is useful for taking selfies with the main camera. Although, despite that, it comes with a 32MP selfie camera.
It sports a 4300mAh battery with 44W SuperVOOC fast charging. It charges via USB-C. It comes in Astral Black and Moonlight Purple. It comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner because it is hard to fit an in-display scanner in the current state of flipping phones.
In comparison, the 8/128 Galaxy Z Flip 4 starts at GBP 999 (~Php 66.8K) while the Find N2 Flip is far more affordable at GBP 849 (~Php 56.8K) and also has double the storage (8/256). There is also a 12 or 16GB LPDDR5 RAM with 512GB UFS 3.1 storage versions available
There’s no word yet of a Philippine release but according to an Oppo PH representative, there may be an official announcement as nothing is final yet.
For now, maybe stick to Samsung’s. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 starts at Php 58,990
