OPPO took what it learned from the Find N to introduce an improved book-style foldable. Let’s get acquainted with the OPPO Find N2.
Thinner & lighter
The original OPPO Find N was on the chunkier side, so, unsurprisingly, the company tries to shed some of that former device’s weight. The OPPO Find N2 is a bit narrower than its predecessor at 72.6mm when closed (compared to the 73mm of the Find N). Its thickness is 14.6mm when closed and 7.4mm when opened (down from 15.9mm and 8mm). It also weighs less at 233g, thanks to the improved hinge design.
The second-generation Flexion hinge on this foldable has fewer parts (100 down from 138) and uses advanced materials like carbon fiber and high-strength alloy to help keep the weight down. This new hinge shrinks the crease by 67%, meaning it should be less visible. It allows the phone to hold any angle between 45 and 125 degrees.
With that slightly smaller frame, OPPO reworked the Find N2’s displays, too. It keeps roughly the same size as its predecessor, but its aspect ratio is slightly stouter at 17.7:9 (instead of 18:9). But even if the phone is narrower, the bezels are thinner on the cover screen, so the difference shouldn’t be too big.
The OPPO Find N2’s 5.54-inch cover display supports a 120Hz refresh rate, achieves a peak brightness of 1,350 nits, and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. Its inner display maintains the same dimensions with a 7.1-inch screen and a squarish 9.6:9 aspect ratio. This internal display features an LTPO panel, meaning the refresh rate varies between 1Hz and 120Hz. It gets even brighter than the cover screen at 1,550 nits.
OPPO improves screen legibility with an anti-reflection film. Both screens get HDR10+ support, too.
The OPPO Find N2 still has a triple camera setup at the back and two selfie shooters. The main camera at the back gets upgraded to a 50-megapixel IMX890 sensor with optical image stabilization. That’s paired with a 48-megapixel IMX581 ultra-wide sensor and a 32-megapixel IMX709 telephoto camera. As for the selfie cameras on the cover display and inside, both have 32-megapixel sensors.
As part of OPPO’s ongoing partnership with Hasselblad, the two companies co-developed the camera system on the Find N2. It gets features like the Professional mode using algorithms to match the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution and Hasselblad’s signature Xpan mode. OPPO’s MariSilicon X processor helps with image processing.
This phone’s hinge allows for some creative shooting angles. You can shoot at waist level looking down at the phone, similar to a Hasselblad camera’s waist-level finder, or even place it on the ground and use that hinge to make a tripod of sorts.
Plus, the other OPPO Find N2 specs
Unfortunately, the OPPO Find N2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by being a step behind the current chipset generation with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone comes with the Android 13-based ColorOS 13 out of the box.
OPPO maintains the same 4,520mAh battery, but now it gets 67W charging, which promises to get you to 37% in 10 minutes or a full charge in 42 minutes.
The OPPO Find N2 is available in two configurations:
- 12GB + 256GB – CNY 8,000 (around USD 1,150)
- 16GB + 512GB – CNY 9,000 (~USD 1,300)
OPPO offers three color options for this foldable. There’s a matte white and minty green. Both have glass backs and weigh a bit more at 237g. And then there’s a black option with vegan leather covering on the back.
