OPPO Find N – its first foldable (OPPO INNO DAY 2021)
Well, not really. OPPO has been working on foldables for four years and six generations. The OPPO Find N is the first it is prepared to stake its reputation on.
New form factors herald an exciting time in smartphone technology. OPPO has experimented with a range of form factors, hinge designs, display materials and aspect ratios to create a new device that meets the needs of more users. With the OPPO Find N, we aim to change people’s perceptions about what a smartphone can offer and begin making foldable devices more accessible to an even larger audience.Pete Lau, Chief Product Officer of OPPO
OPPO Find N Basic tech
The Find sub-brand is its flagship offering, and as such, it has to have the latest technology. Forgetting the fold for a moment, the release model has a Qualcomm SD888, 12/512GB, 4500mAh SUPERVOOC/AIRVOOC fast charge battery and supports Dolby Atmos.
The 7.1”, 8.4:9, 120Hz LPTO OLED screen is called a Serene Display and uses 12-layers of materials, including Ultra-Thin glass. It has 1000 nits peak brightness (about 400 nits typical). Unlike other foldables, the Flexion Hinge widens the fold angle to reduce the fold crease – it claims to be 80% less noticeable than other brands. There is also an external 5.49” OLED display with Gorilla Glass protection front and back.
ColorOS has updates allow the screens use from 50-120° as well as split screens and video/text halves. It also supports new gestures such as a two-finger split screen and four-finger floating windows. The content on the outer panel seamless transfers to the fold panel.
