Here comes the OPPO Find N2 Flip. The smartphone with the largest battery and fastest charging of any Flip device
OPPO, one of the world’s leading companies in the smart device sector, presented its first foldable, OPPO Find N in December 2021. Thanks to the perfect relationship between the two screens and the introduction of an almost imperceptible fold, the Find N was enthusiastically received by winning the Most Disruptive Device Innovation Award at the Global Mobile Awards 2022. If the first foldable has been so successful, what can we expect from OPPO’s first flip?
Details on the new OPPO Find N2 Flip
Flips attract a different target than folding phones, capturing the attention of those looking for a comfortable device that does not neglect design and aesthetics. In fact, flip smartphones they are compact devices but also extremely detailed. This “portability” sometimes comes at a price: Flip phones have notoriously poor battery life and need to be recharged often. To date, nothing on the market has managed to combine the potential of a flip, in terms of aesthetics, design and comfort, with a long-lasting battery.
After four years and six generations of foldable solutions, we have created a much loved foldable phone, OPPO Find N. With a philosophy based on patience and high standards, we have been committed to creating the best flip phone possible, and a longer lasting battery and a faster reloads are the key to achieving this

A battery with greater capacity and longer life
The easiest way to improve battery life is to increase its capacity, but that’s not an easy challenge on a flip smartphone. Due to its pocket-friendly size, it becomes difficult to fit a large, fast-charging battery, especially when the hinge and folding mechanism take up so much space. Which is why most flip phones have batteries below 4000mAh. All flip smartphone manufacturers have tried to improve the battery capacity, but only OPPO has tackled this challenge in a unique way.
A structural engineer from OPPO says:
Originally, we expected our first flip phone to have a maximum battery capacity of 3800mAh. Furthermore, it had to be thin, compact and foldable. But as the leaders in technology and engineering, we have demanded more of ourselves, persevering to achieve something incredible with OPPO Find N2 Flip – the battery with the best capacity in the industry.
A “big” battery in so little space
To meet this challenge, OPPO has looked for various opportunities to carve out the space necessary to insert a larger and more powerful battery. For example, 100mAh more has been recovered by redesigning the space dedicated to the SIM card, saving 2.2mm of space. Furthermore, the displacement of the output grid made it possible to recover 78 mAh more, finally managing to insert the 4300mAh battery in OPPO Find N2 Flip. This extra capacity translates into a 17% improvement in battery life, giving you up to 20 hours more YouTube playback or 53 hours Spotify listening than other flips. Furthermore, OPPO Find N2 Flip has an autonomy equal to a whole day on a single charge, allowing an experience ever closer to traditional smartphones.
The fastest and most advanced charging in a flip phone
Flip smartphones typically don’t charge as quickly as regular bar phones because fast-charging systems require a very large battery. Once again, however, OPPO has accepted the challenge equipping the OPPO Find N2 Flip with its best-in-class 44W SUPERVOOCTM flash charge. This manages to bring the phone from 0% to 34% in just 15 minutes. Since flip smartphones are so unique due to their small size design, creating a fast charging system with excellent durability, even after a large number of charging cycles, is very challenging. To do so, OPPO has revised its proven fast-charging dual-cell design by incorporating a larger cell – 3110mAh – and a smaller one – 1190mAh – for a total of 4300mAh.
OPPO Find N2 Flip : Dual-Battery Charging System
To ensure long-term battery health, both cells need to charge and discharge simultaneously. OPPO thus created the “Dual-Battery Charging System”, adding a control switch to the parallel circuit. When the charging chip detects that the small battery has reached a certain charge level, its voltage is disconnected and it starts charging the larger battery. If the larger battery is nearing 100%, power reverts to the parallel branch scheme. So that the battery as a whole can achieve the same charge and discharge times as traditional smartphones. This “Dual-Battery Charging System” makes 44W SUPERVOOCTM charging safe, stable and possible despite the small space. OPPO Find N2 Flip does not get hot. The phone is equipped with a four-sheet graphite layer to dissipate heat evenly throughout the phone, ensuring that the maximum temperature does not exceed 41.5°C.
DXOMARK Battery Test: OPPO Find N2 Flip is the best battery-level flip
The world’s leading quality evaluation laboratory subjected OPPO Find N2 Flip to a rigorous series of battery tests to measure its performance. The score given to autonomy is 100 out of a maximum of 188 achieved in the smartphone market. Instead the DXOMARK battery charge score, consisting of full charge and fast charge, reaches a score of 112 out of a maximum of 181. The energy efficiency score, on the other hand, is composed of the Charge up and Discharge rate values, which combine the data obtained during a typical usage scenario. In this case, a score of 124 out of a maximum of 154 is obtained. Tests on OPPO Find N2 Flip position it as the best flip in terms of battery.
