OPPO has been one of the pioneers when it comes to pushing the boundaries of smartphone innovation. This is why we have loved using their devices as there is usually something cutting-edge that interests us. In fact, the company leads the way with several revolutionary and experimental technologies such as a rotating camera, pop-up selfie camera, selfie AI, VOOC charging, 5x optical zoom, and more. And at the center is the OPPO Find series. This series showcases the best of OPPO and the latest version available is the all-new OPPO Find N2 Flip.
The OPPO Find N2 Flip is priced at INR 89,999 and is already up on sale starting today across Flipkart, OPPO Store, and mainline retailers. Customers can get it for as low as INR 79,999 through cashback and incentives.
Let us guide you through the OPPO Find N2 Flip smartphone and show you what is all about.
Design: Redefining the future by looking at the past
The first thing that we notice about the OPPO Find N2 Flip is its design. The screen of the smartphone folds down. This is more than just nostalgia bait. Folding the screen down reduces the overall footprint of the smartphone. That means we can easily carry the phone in our pocket. So, you could wear the skinniest of jeans and the OPPO Find N2 Flip will fit into your pocket regardless!
But it’s not just our pocket that the phone fits neatly into. It fits into our hands just as well. The rear panel of the smartphone features an elegant curve that delivers a smooth feel when we hold it. In fact, the whole phone perfectly fits into our hands, making it very comfortable to use.
All this is further helped by the overall dimensions of the phone itself. The whole phone weighs just 191g and is super slim at 7.45mm! This adds to its portability and style factor too. And who wouldn’t like that?
Speaking of style, the OPPO Find N2 Flip is available in two colour variants. Namely Astral Black and Moonlit Purple. The Astral Black variant features fingerprint-resistant, micro-etched glass that subtly glimmers under the light. It also features a polished aluminium frame with a wave-like flourish. Meanwhile, the Moonlit Purple features a soft shimmer with a diffusing texture. This helps attract fewer fingerprints, ensuring that the phone always looks brand new!
Cover Screen: Largest in the segment!
The second feature that turned our heads is the massive cover screen on the OPPO Find N2 Flip. Think of it as a little window into the phone itself. You can quickly glance at your notifications and even interact with some apps on the cover screen. In fact, it is the largest cover screen on any flip phone currently available. It has a size of 3.26 inches, with a 17:9 aspect ratio and a peak brightness of 900nits. It also features Edge to Edge Glass on Glass between the frame and cover screen for a bezel-less experience that is quite the head turner if you ask us. It should also be noted that the cover screen features an always-on display. So, we can quickly see the time, date, battery level, and other notifications with just a glance.
This large size also gives us more flexibility when it comes to interacting with the apps on the display. It can show up to six notifications, thereby reducing unnecessary scrolling. We can also reply to messages directly from the cover screen via built-in and customised phrases. Another benefit was that we could also toggle settings via a single screen without the need to swipe around. Further, we were be able to access payment apps directly from the cover screen. Just what you need to make payments to vendors quickly and be on your way.
Of course, the cover screen is fully customisable with messages and stickers. There are also neat little touches such as the interactive pet live wallpaper. If you just want a good laugh, then you also have the option of setting up the cover screen to display your favourite reaction GIF!
Main Display: Flexible magic
With such a good cover display, let’s not forget that the OPPO Find N2 Flip also has a main display. And what a display it is. We were left awed by its massive 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a 21:9 cinematic aspect ratio. This makes it great for watching movies or consuming multimedia content. On top of this, you also get a 120Hz LTPO adaptive refresh rate which keeps things silky smooth!
OPPO’s engineers have also put a lot of thought into the display to make it easily legible. It offers a peak brightness of 1600nits. This should make it crisp and clear, even under bright sunlight. Speaking of which, it also comes with OPPO’s proprietary Anti-Reflection film. This makes the display reflect five times less glare as compared to other folding phones.
Of course, one notable issue plaguing folding smartphones is the crease on the display. The OPPO Find N2 Flip has the least visible crease of any flip phone. This is made possible by the new generation Flexion Hinge. When folded, it guides the phone’s flexible display into a soft waterdrop pattern along the crease line. This results in a 63 percent narrower crease as compared to the previous generation hinge. Further, when you close the phone, there is no hinge gap. This helps improve dust resistance and protects it from scratches.
And not to forget is the OPPO Find N2 Flip’s FlexForm mode. The specially designed cam systems on either side of the hinge provide the perfect amount of resistance, in combination with the friction plate, confidently holding the folding angle of your choice between 45º and 110º. You can keep the phone half open in mid-fold position into a tripod steady hands-free camera or even for taking notes while doing your important conference calls.
The Flexion Hinge is built using aircraft-grade high-strength steel and aircraft-grade carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. This makes it strong, but light. Further, the hinge should be pretty reliable as it offers TÜV Rheinland Reliable Folding Certification that too first one in the flip phone category. And they do not just give those out! After 4,00,000 fold, the phone can still be used normally. This is equivalent to 10 years of use by normal users. Well, I think it’s pretty awesome!
Camera: Click to save memories
Another very prominent feature that we can see is the dual-camera setup. This includes a 50MP Sony IMX890 primary sensor. This unit packs a large f/1.8 aperture lens as well as a 23mm OIS camera with support for DOL-HDR. This allows us to take incredibly clear and crisp imaging regardless of the lighting conditions!
But that’s not all. Each and every pixel in the primary sensor is a focus point thanks to omnidirectional intelligent focusing. This lets the picture to have subjects that are in sharp focus, and backgrounds that are soft.
Teaming up with this camera is an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens. This lets you fit more of the view into the picture making it ideal for landscape photography or group photos.
As if all this wasn’t enough, OPPO and Hasselblad have jointly integrated Certified HNCS (Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution). This allows for more natural and accurate colors when shooting in RAW format. Another benefit of this collaboration is that you will get access to the XPAN mode with the smartphone. This is a special mode that is inspired by the Hasselblad XPAN camera. It offers a unique ultra-wide film-like field of view that is perfect for creating narrative-themed photos.
The imaging experience in the OPPO Find N2 Flip is then further enhanced by the use of MariSilicon X NPU. This is based on the 6nm process and helps you take better 4K video during the day via 4K Ultra HDR and in the night through 4K Ultra Night Video
The coolest bit about the dual-rear setup is that when the phone is folded, it can be used for taking selfies. This is where the large cover screen comes on to its own. The larger screen of real estate gives users a better view when clicking photos. It also lets them use all the high-end features available with the cameras.
When you open the phone, you will notice that there is a front-facing camera that is nestled within a punch-hole cutout on the display. This is a 32MP Sony IMX709 sensor. So, you can use it like you would a traditional front-facing camera and at the same time use it like a camcorder to create perfect time-lapse video and much more.
We all hate underpowered phones and thankfully, the OPPO Find N2 Flip did not disappoint us. OPPO has worked closely with MediaTek to create a battery-optimized flagship-grade Dimensity 9000+ SoC chipset for the Find N2 Flip that is based on the 4nm process. This is MediaTek’s fastest-ever 5G smartphone chip and is designed to offer top-notch performance without compromising on battery life. It should be noted that it helps the OPPO Find N2 Flip support two 5G SIMs simultaneously. This makes it the first flip phone to offer such a feature.
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ is an octa-core chipset that features one Arm Cortex X2 ultra core, three Arm Cortex A710 super cores, and four Arm Cortex A510 efficiency cores. This means that the chipset will be able to offer the right amount of performance based on the need.
It should be noted that the OPPO Find N2 Flip also comes with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, which should ensure speedy response times. In terms of software, the phone comes with ColorOS 13, which is based on Android 13. So, you get the best that Android has to offer with a dash of OPPO’s own know-how. On top of this, the phone is promised to offer four years of Android updates and five years of security updates.
Battery: It’s SUPERVOOCTM
We are pleased to report that the OPPO Find N2 Flip comes with a massive 4300mAh battery, which is very impressive considering that this is a phone designed to fold in half! In fact, this is the longest-lasting battery and fastest charging you will find in this segment.
Of course, when talking about OPPO and batteries, you must talk about the SUPERVOOCTM charging system. The OPPO Find N2 Flip offers 44W SUPERVOOCTM charging. OPPO’s optimisations, combined with the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset should ensure you aren’t tethered to a wall socket for long. With just 15 minutes of charging, you will be able to enjoy up to four hours of music streaming, an hour of social media browsing, and four hours of phone calls.
As is pretty evident, the OPPO Find N2 Flip is a smartphone that is designed to cater to all. Those looking for a stylish smartphone will love how the phone turns heads, not just for the fact that it is a flip phone, but also for its gorgeous design.
Technology enthusiasts will love the amount of high-tech wizardry that went into making the smartphone a reality. From the flexible AMOLED display itself to the intricate new generation Flexion Hinge. They will also appreciate the fact that OPPO did not shy away from putting the most powerful chipset they could into the smartphone, while still ensuring ample battery life.
Finally, photographers will love the camera features on offer. The ability to take crisp, clear photos regardless of lighting conditions will surely appeal to them. Then you add the fact that the Hasselblad partnership helps improve RAW photos means that they have greater freedom in post-processing.
All this makes the OPPO Find N2 Flip a great smartphone overall. While it may have taken some time, it looks like OPPO has finally created a smartphone that will appeal to all users. It is truly a smartphone that can do it all!
