It’s no coincidence that both devices were released on the same day.
Alongside the OnePlus Open, Oppo also released their third iteration foldable. It’s basically the latter phone but with Oppo’s own flavour. Because the two phones are very similar, the Oppo Find N3 will be released in global markets where the OnePlus Open couldn’t reach. We heard it will retail in Singapore, aside from its home country, China.
Just like the Open, the N3 features a Hasselblad-labelled triple camera and the all-new Sony LYTIA 48MP primary camera! We talked about the OnePlus Open already, so we’ll make this one brief.
The only main difference between these two are the Android skins, and even then, it’s barely a difference because OxygenOS now shares a lot of elements from ColorOS. Just like the OnePlus Open, the Oppo Find N3 has a 7.81″ LTPO3 unfolded display and a 6.31″ LTPO3 OLED when folded.
It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with 16GB RAM and 512GB ROM. An additional 4GB RAM is what the OnePlus Open was missing.
It uses a 48MP Sony LYTIA T808 camera (with 52MP effective megapixels), a 64MP Omnivision OV64B Telephoto, and a 48MP Sony IMX581 ultrawide. It features a 32MP selfie camera on the cover screen and a 20MP camera when used similarly like a tablet.
In terms of battery life, you’re getting a 4805mAh battery with 67W SuperVOOC fast charging. Like the Open, this one also lacks wireless charging. A shame. It might turn off some users.
It comes in Champagne Gold, made using aluminum, and Classic Black with a leather design. It premiered in China for CNY 12,999 (~PHP 100.8K) but also includes a variety of accessories including a kickstand, car charger, keyboard, and many others. The tablet also has more color offerings at home, including red and green. The same green found on the Open. In the same region, a 12/512 version is offered, at a slightly lower CNY 9,999 (~PHP 77.6K) price tag.
Another noticeable difference is how these companies sell these tablets. While essentially a brand change, OnePlus only offers the tablet online since they have no physical stores, at least in the US where it is being sold. Servicing can be a chore since you have to send it in and who knows what could happen.
