(Pocket-lint) – Oppo has announced its latest flagship foldable phone, the Find N2.
The previous model impressed us in 2021 and became one of our favorite foldable devices to date. It was only let down by its availability as it was only released in China.
To remove the plaster prematurely: Unfortunately, this is also the case with this model.
Oppo has told us the reason for this decision is that app support for the phone’s unique aspect ratio is still limited in western countries, while the brand’s ties to the Chinese market have made it easier for developers to get on board to fetch.
Apart from the limited availability, the hardware of the new cell phone should also impress.
According to Oppo, it’s the lightest horizontally foldable phone ever, weighing just 233 grams.
That’s 43g lighter than the Find N and lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Much of this weight reduction is due to the second generation Flexion Hinge. This is at the same time thinner, lighter and stronger than the previous generation.
Made from a combination of carbon fibers and alloys, it’s now rated for 400,000 folds, double the original Find N.
Oppo says the creases are even less visible on the new model’s screen, which is quite an achievement given that the Find N was already excellent in this area.
The phone maintains its short and stocky dimensions, with a 5.54-inch display on the outside and 7.1-inches when unfolded.
Both displays have a snappy 120Hz refresh rate and impressive brightness. The outer display offers 1350 nits, the inner 1550 nits.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and supports 67W SuperVOOC fast charging, which offers a flat to full charge in just over 40 minutes.
There’s a triple camera setup with a trio of Sony sensors including a 50MP f/1.8 main camera, 48MP f/2.2 ultrawide and a 32MP f/2.0 2x telephoto camera.
These cameras all benefit from Hasselblad color science and, thanks to MariSilicon X processing, have greater dynamic range and better noise reduction.
As we mentioned above, the camera will only be launching in China, which is a bit of a shame as it sounds like a serious piece of gear.
