Of course, the comparison is a bit lame, but it is still used to put the weight of foldables on the scales, which is finally falling. At 233 grams, the Oppo Find N2, which will be launched in China on December 15th, is said to weigh less than a classic cell phone in a bar format for the first time, although you can see the 240 gram iPhone 14 Pro Max from Apple (available here on Amazon) selected.
Nevertheless, this weight reduction (the first Oppo Find N still weighed 275 grams) is a relevant improvement. According to Oppo, this was mainly achieved through the use of new materials and a completely new hinge (see also video below). The leaker Ice Universe called the magic word “carbon” in a tweet, but then deleted the posting again, making it unclear whether carbon will actually be the miracle cure for future foldables like the Galaxy Z Fold5 expected in summer.
In terms of form factor, the Oppo Find N2 should be quite similar to its predecessor, and that is definitely desirable, because the wider impression even when folded was generally perceived as an advantage over the very long-looking cover display of the direct competitor Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3. In the latest Oppo promo video, the Find N2 folding cell phone can also be seen with a leather-like back and a frontal view. According to an earlier leak, Oppo uses new and Hasselblad-branded cameras, but the chipset is still the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and not yet the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
