Oppo Find N has become the company’s first foldable phone. The smartphone is the result of four years of research and development and the end product of six generations of prototypes. Oppo also praised that it has used a list of refinements on the Find N to provide a better folding experience. The phone appears to be a strong competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 that, launched earlier this year as the third iteration of the Galaxy Fold.

To talk about the Oppo Find N and how it compares to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, host, Akhil Arora speaks with Reviews Deputy Editor Roydon Cerejo and Senior Reviewer Aditya Shenoy on this week’s episode of Gadgets 360 podcast Orbital.

The Oppo Find N has a starting price of CNY 7,699 (approximately Rs. 90,700) for the base version with 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage, while the top-end 12 GB + 512 GB model costs CNY 8,999 (approximately Rs. 1,06,000). The pricing is lower when we compare it to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, which starts at Rs. 1.49.999 for the 12GB RAM + 256GB model and goes up to Rs. 1,57,999 for the 12GB + 512GB option. However, Find N is currently a China exclusive, and it’s unclear if it will reach other markets in the future.

Foldable Phone

Roydon had the chance to spend some time with the Oppo Find N. He talks about the main features of the phone. One of the most important is the OLED cover display which is large enough at 5.49 inches and has an 18:9 aspect ratio. This makes it a perfect phone to use when folded. It’s better than the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which delivers a 24.5:9 aspect ratio and looks more like a pen tray – thanks to its slim and tall appearance.

Unfolded, the Oppo Find N has a 7.1-inch LTPO display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The foldable display has a screen-to-body ratio of 90.7 percent. A patented Flexion Hinge design is claimed to leave no gap between the two sides of the folding screen.

Oppo Find N First Impressions: Folding the Right Way

The modified hinge solves the problem of showing a crease in the center of the folding display when unfolding. This is different from the Galaxy Z Fold 3 – and most other foldable devices today – in that a crease is visible when you unfold the phone and place your finger somewhere in the middle. It makes the phone look like it has a flat seamless screen.

In addition to the new hardware, Oppo has brought a list of tweaks to the software side of the Find N to take advantage of the foldable form factor. There is gesture support to enhance multitasking on the foldable display. You can also split the keyboard into two different parts for easy typing.

When unfolded, the Find N works more like a mini-tablet. It is, however, thicker and heavier than a regular premium smartphone. This is something that also exists with the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Oppo has packed the Find N with a 4,500mAh battery that supports 33W SuperVOOC wired charging, 15W AirVOOC wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. The phone also packs a total of five cameras, including a triple camera setup on the rear and two selfie cameras – one on the cover display and the other on the inner screen.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
