After a first teaser video in the last week, Oppo officially launched its new folding smartphone Oppo Find N today revealed. According to Oppo, development took four years and six prototypes. The result is a folding smartphone with a large outside and an almost square inside display. The screen attached to the outside of the housing measures 5.49 inches and the large display installed on the inside comes with an aspect ratio of 8.4: 9 by 7.1 inches.
The hinge built into the smartphone is called Flexion Hinge and consists of 136 components. It folds the Oppo Find N in a teardrop shape, making the kink less noticeable. The wedge-shaped gap between the two halves when folded is also eliminated, according to Oppo. The hinge also offers the so-called Flexform mode, which can keep the two halves stable at any angle between 50 and 120 degrees. This means that the smartphone can be used as a tripod for time-lapse recordings or video calls.
The built-in display is an AMOLED panel with 120 Hz, which, thanks to its special design, should withstand up to 200,000 folding processes. It has a resolution of 1,792 x 1,920 pixels. The display installed on the outside is also an AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1,972 x 988 pixels. However, it only supports a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
The Snapdragon 888 and eight or twelve gigabytes of RAM work in the case. When it comes to internal storage, buyers can choose from 256 and 512 gigabytes. The Oppo Find N has a total of five cameras. The main lens has a resolution of 50 megapixels and comes from Sony. It is supported by two selfie cameras as well as an ultra-wide-angle lens with 16 megapixels and a telephoto lens with 13 megapixels. A battery with 4,500 mAh is also on board.
The Oppo Find N will be available in China from December 23, 2021. The version with eight gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of internal memory costs the equivalent of 1,070 euros and the version with twelve gigabytes of RAM and 512 gigabytes of internal memory costs the equivalent of 1,240 euros. Currently, Oppo does not plan to release the smartphone outside of China. A release in Germany is therefore unlikely. (PC world)
