Oppo Find N it is the first leaflet of the Chinese company to land on the market. Not ours, we anticipate it immediately. Find N will indeed arrive on December 23 in China while the possible release date for the rest of the world, including Italy, has not yet been announced.
The sixth of its kind
If it is the first Oppo foldable to land on the market, why does the title say that it is the sixth folding of the Asian giant?
The answer is simple: all previous models have never debuted in stores, physical or online. In fact, Oppo worked hard to create a product that lived up to user expectations, both from a hardware and a software point of view. Find N is therefore the first leaflet of the Dongguan company that meets Oppo and consumer standards.
Oppo Find N: two displays and a single hinge
The Chinese manufacturer has chosen the path of dual display: an external, 4.9 “and with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, and an internal, 7.1” with an unusual ratio, ie 8.4: 9. A decision that should guarantee users the ability to perform virtually any function with the external screen, taking advantage of the large internal folding display as needed.
Of course, size and ratio do matter up to a point. In fact, users are looking for quality screens. To meet this need, Asian society has created the Serene Display. It is the name given to the internal screen, made and customized with 12 different layers, including a 0.03 mm width of Flexion UTG, i.e. ultra-thin glass.
Let’s not forget then the dynamic refresh rate – from 1 to 120 Hz depending on the content – and a brightness that reaches 1,000 nits peak.
The hinge that makes the ben possible 200,000 guaranteed openings from Oppo it is called Flexion Hinge, It is made up of 136 different components and boasts a unique, teardrop design that solves some of the biggest pain points of folding devices by widening the angle of the display’s fold and offering a cushion when you close it.
The software adapts
The Flexion Hinge allows Oppo Find N to remain in balance when opened at an angle between 50 ° and 120 °. A feature that is also exploited by the software thanks to FlexForm. Some applications, such as Music, Notes and Camera, they can in fact adapt to guarantee users a better user experience.
Think for example of Notes, with Find N that allows you to take notes without holding your smartphone. Opening the Camera instead you may find that the device behaves like a tripod, which is extremely useful for both video calls and time-lapse recording.
But FlexForm Mode is only one piece of the puzzle. In fact, there are several solutions found by Oppo on the software front. On the multitasking front, for example, we find the possibility of sliding two fingers down to divide the screen in half; you can also pinch a screen with four fingers to switch from fullscreen to a smaller window or, again, use long-press and drag-and-drop icons to create a multi-app split-screen combination and create combinations that you can quickly recall in time of need.
Finally, there is no lack of keyboard customizations that allow, among other things, to divide it to type with two thumbs without too much difficulty.
But the performance? To animate Oppo Find N we find the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory. The 4,500 mAh battery should take us to the end of the day while fast charging – the 33W SuperVOOC Flash Charge – lets you switch from 0 to 55% in 30 minutes and to fully recharge the smartphone in about 70 minutes. Fast charging at 15W and reverse charging at 10W are also available.
A complete photographic sector
The photographic sector is also a vital aspect for a folding top of the range. That’s why Find N mounts a 50 megapixel Sony IMX766 main sensor, a 16 megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 13 megapixel telephoto lens, as well as two selfie cameras positioned on both the internal and external displays.
To accompany the user we also find a renewed interface, which offers the ability to use the internal display for shooting and to view, share or delete the photo with the external one, as well as the ability to use the external display to allow the shooting subject to preview the photo. A speech that obviously also applies when you are alone, so you can take your selfies with the rear module.
An ergonomic design
Oppo Find N uses, for the first time on a folding device, a curved design on both outer edges, so as to improve grip without sacrificing design. To protect it we find the Gorilla Glass Victus while the camera plate is ceramic for a truly premium finish.
We then report the presence along the edges of the fingerprint reader, integrated in the power button, and of two speakers with Dolby Atmos support.
Three colors are provided: Black, White e Purple. The first combines opaque glass and new film lamination techniques for a premium effect; the second is inspired by a white ceremica glaze, with the presence of a glossy glass and a refined texture that matches the ceramic camera plate to create a feeling of coherence. Finally we have the Purple variant, which uses multiple layers of custom film to create illusions of light and shadow with a transparent texture.
Oppo Find N: price and availability
But how much does Oppo Find N cost? At the moment the company has not announced the price.
On the availability front, however, the date for the debut on the Chinese market is 23 December while there is no news relating to the landing in Europe and Italy.
