Last December, Oppo entered the foldable market with the launch of the Oppo Find N. A year later, the company has now confirmed to release its successor called Oppo Find N2. This device has been also revealed to be accompanied by yet another foldable phone called Oppo Find N2 Flip.
The upcoming Oppo Find N2 Flip will be the company’s first clamshell foldable smartphone. It will compete against the world’s best-selling foldable phone series — Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Let’s take a look at everything that’s known about this device ahead of its official announcement.
Oppo Find N2 Flip Launch Date
The Oppo Find N2 Flip is scheduled to launch in China on December 15 (Thursday). It will be announced alongside the Oppo Find N2 on the second day of the Oppo Inno Day 2022 conference.
The keynote will begin at 4 PM GMT+8. It will be live-streamed on Weibo and leading Chinese video streaming platforms.
The smartphone is also rumored to debut in global markets later. However, the company is yet to confirm it.
Oppo Find N2 Flip Design
The Oppo Find N2 Flip is a clamshell foldable smartphone. In other words, its internal main display folds vertically inwards.
Oppo has been teasing the design of this handset for the last few days. At the same time, it has even appeared in a render and short video.
Based on this information, we can expect the device to sport a larger cover display than Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Motorola Razr 2022. The external screen will be placed vertically on the right side of the cameras.
Finally, the phone will feature a thin flat frame and curved rear panels.
Oppo Find N2 Flip Specifications (Based on Leaks and Rumors)
The Oppo Find N2 Flip will arrive with a 6.8-inch Samsung E6 foldable AMOLED display with an FHD+ (2520 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Whereas, the vertical OLED cover screen will measure 3.26 inches.
Under the hood, the handset will house a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus SoC. This chipset will be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.
The smartphone will use a dual camera system on the rear. The setup will consist of a 50MP Sony IMX890 primary sensor and an 8MP Sony IMX355 ultra-wide unit. It will also come with a 32MP Sony IMX709 front-facing camera and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The phone will boot ColorOS 13 based on Android 13. It will draw energy from a 4,300mAh battery and carry support for 44W fast wired charging.
Last but not least, the device will be available in black, white, and green color options.
Oppo Find N2 Flip Expected Price
The original Oppo Find N debuted at ¥7,699 ($1,104). It is a horizontal folding smartphone that turns into a tablet when unfolded.
On the other hand, the Oppo Find N2 is a vertically folding clamshell smartphone. This type of foldables is usually cheaper than the ones that turn into tablets.
Therefore, the Oppo Find N2 will be more affordable than the Oppo Find N at launch.
