finally a serious competitor to the Galaxy Z Flip4?

OPPO is expected to introduce its Find N Flip soon. We take stock of the characteristics, price and release date of the most anticipated folding smartphone of this end of the year.

OPPO’s first clamshell folding smartphone is getting closer and new elements have appeared on the web. The Chinese brand should take advantage of the end of 2022 to unveil two new folding devices. In addition to the Find N successor, OPPO should take inspiration from Samsung by offering a “flip” variant. This format appeals to users, in particular thanks to its lower base price than “book” type models.

After a first leak in October, the Find N Flip is getting talked about again. Before its presentation, we decided to take stock of one of the most anticipated smartphones of the end of the year.

A MediaTek Dimensity chip rather than a Snapdragon

According to information from Digital Chat Station, the OPPO Find N Flip would embed a chip Dimension 9000. A small surprise insofar as the first returns evoked rather the presence of a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The choice of MediaTek remains however coherent since this SoC is still one of the most powerful on the market. It continues to equip mobile devices, pending the deployment of the Size 9200.

It remains to be seen whether the manufacturer will choose to offer different versions. OPPO had notably presented a Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition equipped with a Dimensity 9000; in addition to the Find X5 Pro equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that we know in France.

As mentioned above, the manufacturer would opt for a 6.8-inch folding AMOLED E6 display. This indoor screen should offer definition Full HD+ 1080 x 2520 pixels, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. 3.26-inch secondary screenOLED, would take place at the front of the device.

Dual camera and fast charging

On the photo side, it seems to be confirmed that the Find N Flip will be equipped with a 32-megapixel Sony IMX709 selfie camera. On the back of the folding smartphone, OPPO would offer a double photo module consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor (Sony IMX890) and a 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 ultra-wide-angle lens.

The whole would be powered by a 4300mAh battery ; who would benefit from a c44W fast charge. This element will be important, because the clamshell models struggle to convince in terms of autonomy. Finally, a fingerprint reader would take place on the side and should act as a start key. The Find N Flip is likely to run under Color OS 13an overlay based on Android 13. It would come in black, white and purple.

When will the OPPO Find N Flip be presented?

Also according to Digital Chat Station, the OPPO Find N Flip will be formalized in mid-December. The brand is expected to introduce its flip smartphone alongside theOPPO Find N2. This smartphone, future rival of the Galaxy Z Fold4looks powerful.

On the other hand, we do not know if OPPO plans to launch its next folding smartphones in France. After a first test on the Chinese market, it is likely that the manufacturer try their luck on the European market. This decision would allow him to compete with Samsung, which is still waiting to see competitors arrive.

OPPO Find N Flip: the most anticipated folding smartphone of the end of 2022

Even if the Find N2 is likely to be OPPO’s most powerful folding smartphone, it is of course the Find N Flip that all eyes are on. Faced with Samsung, the real challengers are few and OPPO seems to be able to measure up to the South Korean giant. Since the fall of Huawei, this Chinese brand has been trying to take up the torch by focusing on the (very) high end. A paying strategy that could soon take a new turn: that of the folding smartphone.

For users, the arrival of a serious competitor would be good news. This market, which is still confidential, lives for the time being to the rhythm of Samsung’s announcements; which remains competitive to prove that the segment has a future. With the Find N, OPPO has already demonstrated (read our hands-on) that there was room for a different format that of its Korean competitor.
