Oppo Debuts The Find N2 Foldable Phone


Oppo officially debuted the Find N2, its 2nd generation foldable smartphone for the market segment. A direct successor to the original Find N, the new phone comes with several upgrades and features.

Firstly, the Find N2 is slightly more narrow than its predecessor, with an overall thickness of 72.6mm when closed, which is 0.4mm thinner than the Find N. Oppo has also managed to reduce the weight to just 233g, which is just slightly above the weight of a pre-cooked steak. When opened, the entire phone’s thickness is 7.4mm.


Moving on, the Find N2 continues the compact foldable phone design with a new 17.7:9 aspect ratio, 5.54-inch cover display. While it sounds like a downsize from the 18:9 aspect ratio of the Find N, it does have thinner bezels and even supports a 120Hz refresh rate this round. Additionally, it also has a peak brightness of 1350 nits and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.

Unfolded, the main display of the Find N2 still measures in at 7.1-inches and even retains the same 9.6:9 aspect ratio. The screen is an LTPO panel, meaning that your refresh rate will range anywhere from 1Hz to 120Hz. Like the cover display, it is also very bright but has a higher peak brightness at 1550 nits.

More importantly, the Find N2’s Flexion hinge has also been vastly improved. Firstly, it now only uses 100 parts, down from the 138 parts that the original Find N initially had. As an indirect effect, the reduction of moving parts also reduces the overall weight of the phone. Further, the new hinge design also reduces the crease of the foldable display by 67%, thus making it less visible. Also, unlike its predecessor, it can now be folded into different angles.

Specs-wise, the Find N2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC, supports Oppo’s 67W VOOC fast-charging technology, and has a 4520mAh battery internally. Camera-wise, main module houses a triple-camera array, comprising a 50MP main Sony IMX 890 sensor; a 48MP IMX581 ultrawide, and a 32MP IMX709 telephoto. All these sensors, by the way, are powered by the brand’s new MariSilicon X processor, co-developed by Hasselblad and designed with features like AI Noise Reduction, 4K Ultra HDR Video recording, and FlexForm Capture, to name a few.


The only thing missing from the list right now is local pricing and availability of the Find N2. We’ve reached out to Oppo’s local rep for the details, but even they are saying that they won’t be able to provide us the information until a later date.
