‘Oppo Find N2 Flip’ Specifications And Review: Everything You Need To Know Before Buying

The launch of Oppo Find N2 Flip took place in China in December 2022, but it was released only for the domestic market at that time. On February 15, 2023, the flip phone arrived on the global market and created quite a buzz. The buzz is centered on the question, “Has Samsung found a worthy competitor in the clamshell domain, which it has dominated for so long?” Oppo Find N2 Flip has enough juice to stay in the market, not only with its specifications but also from a price point of view. To get a detailed view of this worthy challenger continue reading the article.


Build And Design

The Oppo Find N2 Flip comes with an aluminum frame and a glass body. When in the folded mode, the device has a dimension of 85.5 x 75.2 x 16 mm, while it has a dimension of 166.2 x 75.2 x 7.5 mm when it is unfolded. When folded, the Oppo Find N2 Flip looks extremely premium and weighs around 191 g, which is considerably on the lighter side. On the global market, the device will only be available in Astral Black and Moonlit Purple colors, which is quite similar to Samsung’s Z Flip 4. The smartphone has a slight grip issue and requires a firm grasp and some effort to open, but the Flexion hinge works smoothly and is capable of withstanding more than 400,000 folds, according to Oppo. The IPX4 rating, which provides no dust resistance and only a basic level of water resistance, is unfortunate and detracts slightly from the durability factor. 


Display

Both the main and cover screens have an AMOLED display. The 6.8-inch main display supports HDR10+ and can reach a peak brightness of up to 1600 nits, making it perfect for the outdoors. The device has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and is equipped with LTPO technology, which allows the refresh rate to drop to 1 Hz for improved battery life. With a screen-to-body ratio of around 86.4% and a pixel density of around 403 PPI, the Oppo Find N2 Flip has a resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels. In the Vivid mode, the device has a color gamut of 97% NTSC and 100% DCi-P3, while in the Gentle mode, it has 70% NTSC and 100% sRGB. The cover display is 3.26 in and has a peak brightness of up to 900 nits. Oppo neither offers complete access to every feature via the cover display like Motorola’s Razr nor does it only focus on notifications like Samsung’s Z Flip 4. It takes the safe middle path by allowing access to connectivity controls, notifications, and a group of useful widgets. Most foldable models have been plagued by the problem of a crease, which is often painful to the eye. Oppo has implemented its updated Flexion “water drop” hinge, which you can also find in the Find N, and is far better compared to Samsung’s U-shaped one which has reduced the crease by 60%. This clamshell model also does not have a gap when it is folded, which makes it look not only aesthetically pleasing but also keeps the dust away from the screen.


Technical

Though it is a flagship-level smartphone, the Oppo Find N2 Flip is equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset and not the Snapdragon 8 Gen Plus 1. The device runs on Android 13 (ColorOS 13) and has an octa-core CPU and Mali-G710 GPU. When the essential tests were run, the device scored 936 points on the single core and 3265 on the multi-core in the GeekBench 5 test. On the AnTuTu benchmark, it scored 773574 points, and 2623 points on 3DMark WildLife Extreme. If we speak in terms of the real world, the Oppo Find N2 Flip is fast enough and you will not feel any lag or stutter while opening apps, scrolling, or playing games. The stereo speakers are decent and are able to provide immersive sound, but for getting the best sound with the in-built Dolby Atmos, using a headphone is recommended. The ColorOS has quite a simple interface and has genuinely useful features that enhance the performance of the device. Not only has Oppo assured to provide security updates for 5 years but also OS upgrades for 4 years, which will come in handy.


Camera

Foldable phones, when compared to regular smartphones, have always struggled with the camera department, but the Oppo Find N2 Flip is a bit better. The Oppo Find N2 Flip is tuned by Hasselblad, who takes care of the software and color reproduction, while the photography is taken care of by the MariSilicon X imaging chip. Oppo Find N2 Flip has a dual camera setup in the rear with a 50 MP wide and an 8 MP ultrawide and in the front a 32 MP selfie camera. The 50 MP is equipped with the IMX890 sensor, similar to the OnePlus 11, but does not have OIS. In a well-lit environment, the images are vibrant and the details are visible. But when it comes to low-light conditions, the camera loses its potentiality and provides a softer, oil painting-like picture. It is better to take selfies with the 50 MP rear camera and use the front camera only for video calling.


Battery And Connectivity 

The Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 4300 mAh battery, and the company surely had an engineering challenge getting this large battery on this device. They opted smartly for the dual-cell design, and the large battery does pay off, providing battery backup for more than a day with moderate usage. The Oppo Find N2 Flip includes a 44 W SuperVOOC charger that can charge a phone’s battery to 100% in an hour but does not support wireless charging. For connectivity, the device is equipped with NFC, WiFi 6, and Bluetooth 5.3.


Conclusion

In the foldable market, which was dominated by Samsung until now, Oppo has come up with an improved device in almost all departments, including battery life, crease, camera, and display. The expected price of the device is going to be around $850 for the base variant, which is also more than $100 less than the Samsung Z Flip 4. Yes, it is true the water and dust resistance can be a bit of a worry with its IPX4 rating, but otherwise, the Oppo Find N2 Flip is a serious competitor of the Samsung Z Flip 4, which was much needed.
