As we like the original Oppo Find N’s length and height, we weren’t as fond of its thickness and, in particular, its weight because it was heavier than the bigger Galaxy Z Fold4. With the second-generation model, Oppo has solved these issues and enhanced the cover display.
There are many further upgrades, but before we get into the specifics, we should point to you that Oppo is also unveiling its first flip foldable today. This one is very important because it will be available internationally.
Oppo Find N2
When closed, the Oppo Find N2 is somewhat smaller than its predecessor at 72.6mm (down from 73mm). More significantly, the tablet now only weighs 233g, in large part because of an upgraded hinge design. Additionally, the thickness is 7.4 mm when opened and 14.6 mm when closed (down from 15.9mm and 8.0mm).
The anodized aluminium frame is available in three colours: matte white, mint green, and black. The white and mint green versions feature glass backs and weigh 237g more than the black version.
Flexion’s second-generation hinge has seen significant advancements. First of all, there are now 100 components instead of 138. Second, it makes use of cutting-edge components including high-strength metal and carbon fibre. All of this contributes to the phone’s weight reduction.
Additionally, the crease is reduced by 67% thanks to the revised hinge design, making it less noticeable. There are various use cases for the hinge’s ability to support angles between 45° and 125°; however, we’ll get to those later.
Its cover display has experienced revision. It is still around the same size, but the aspect ratio is 17.7:9, which is a little bit smaller (instead of 18:9). Even so, Oppo reduced the bezels, making the phone slimmer than its predecessor. The 120Hz refresh rate is now supported by the 5.54″ cover display as well. It also has Gorilla Glass Victus protection and a max brightness of 1,350 nits.
The internal display is the same size, measuring 7.1″ and having a rectangular 9.6:9 aspect ratio. This panel’s refresh rate can range from 1Hz to 120Hz because it is an LTPO screen. The touch sampling rate for both panels is 480Hz. With a peak brightness of 1,550nits, the display is even brighter than the cover one.
In order to enhance screen visibility in strong ambient light situations even at lower brightness settings, Oppo overlaid an anti-reflection coating on the display. Both displays employ colour sensors to modify their images in response to lighting conditions and support HDR10+.
The Oppo Find N2 boasts a triple camera in addition to two selfie cameras, much like its predecessor. The primary component was upgraded to a Sony IMX890, which features a 50MP 1/1.56″ sensor and an f/1.8 24mm lens with OIS. This replaces the IMX766 of the same size.
With the 48MP IMX581 1/2″ sensor and an f/2.2 14mm lens, the ultrawide camera saw an even greater improvement. Recall that the 16MP 1/3.09″ sensor on the original Find N was available.
Then there is the telephoto camera, which upgraded from a 13MP 1/3.4″ sensor to a 32MP IMX709 sensor (1/2.74″). If you don’t know the model number, the RGBW filter on this sensor enables it to capture more light. Even better, it has a brighter f/2.0 aperture in comparison to the Find N’s 13MP f/2.4 telephoto lens. At 47mm, the focal length is quite short; it is also shorter than that of the previous model (52mm). However, perhaps the improvements are sufficient to prevent the problem with the original Find N, which switched to a dark picture upscaling from the primary camera.
There are two identical 32MP selfie cameras, one inside and one on the cover display. The camera system was created in collaboration with Hasselblad and is powered by MariSilicon X. The Hasselblad Natural Color Solution seen on the cameras bearing the same name is replicated by algorithms in the Professional mode.
The Xpan mode takes its cues from the titular panorama camera, which utilised 35mm film but produced images with a wide aspect ratio that covered 65mm. The Xpan mode efficiently captures panoramic images with a wide 65:24 aspect ratio.
The hinge enables some inventive shooting positions; for instance, you can shoot from waist level while looking down at the phone, just as with a Hasselblad camera that has a waist-level finder. Even better, you can utilise the phone’s hinged construction as a type of tripod by setting it on the ground.

The charging mechanism was enhanced by Oppo and is now rated at 67W, promising to reach 37% in 10 minutes and reach 100% in 42 minutes (the previous system required 70 minutes to reach 100%). Wireless charging has been abandoned, though. At 4,520mAh, the battery capacity is generally constant.
The Find N2 uses the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is a generation older than the one used by its predecessor. It comes with 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 12GB or 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Android 13 and ColorOS 13 are preinstalled on the phone.
There is currently no information available on the Oppo Find N2’s global rollout outside of China. Keep checking back for a comprehensive evaluation since, well, we have a Find N2 at the office. Here are the costs for China, where bookings may be made as of right now. Consider them to be more expensive because we have provided straight currency conversions for foreign markets that don’t take into account any additional taxes.
Oppo Find N2 Flip
The company’s first foldable in this form factor is the Oppo Find N2 Flip. Its obvious competitors are the Moto RAZR 2022 and Galaxy Z Flip, but this one sticks out thanks to its big 3.62″ cover display (a 60Hz OLED panel, 382 x 720px). This may be used for a variety of things, including taking selfies, displaying QR codes, and adjusting various settings.
When unfurled, the inbuilt AMOLED panel with 120Hz measures 6.8″. This LTPO display has a high refresh rate of 1-120Hz, HDR10+ compatibility, and 97% DCI-P3 coverage. It is also exceptionally bright, with a maximum brightness of 1,600 nits.
This one, as opposed to the Find N2, is powered by the Dimensity 9000+ chipset. You may pick between the following three configurations: 8/256GB, 12/256GB, and 16/512GB (this is LPDDR5/UFS 3.1).
With a 50MP primary module (same IMX890 1/1.56″ sensor) and an 8MP ultrawide unit (112°, IMX355), the camera system is scaled back. Unlike other flip phones, this one doesn’t have a telephoto lens. A 32MP selfie camera is available on the internal display, or you may utilise the primary camera because of the spacious cover display. The chip from MariSilicon to handle image processing is on board.
The 4,300mAh battery in this phone is the biggest flip battery to date, and it also charges the quickest at 44W. For instance, the Razr 2022 has a 3,500mAh battery (again, the IMX709) and only supports 30W wired charging, but the Galaxy Z Flip4 has a 3,700mAh battery (25W wired, 15W wireless). The Oppo system can charge to 34% in 15 minutes and requires roughly an hour to reach 100%.
For water or dust protection, there is no IP rating. The outside panels of the Find N2 Flip are made of the outdated Gorilla Glass 5. When closed, the phone has a closed size of 16mm and 191g.
