Oppo enters the foldable smartphone market in France with the arrival of the Oppo Find N2 Flip. A model that is positioned against the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, the current reference in terms of smartphone in clamshell format. It launches for pre-order today in France at €1,100 in a single available configuration.
Oppo is attacking Samsung in the foldable smartphone market, more particularly in the clamshell segment, which is currently very successful, compared to the foldable book format. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, a market benchmark, may have a serious competitor in its field: the Oppo Find N2 Flip, which we were able to test.
Oppo’s first folding smartphone in France
Find N2 Flip is the brand’s first foldable model to be launched in France. What sets it apart from Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip most is its larger external screen. With a diagonal of 3.26 inches in portrait format, it wants to cover more needs when the phone is in the folded position. A positioning similar to that of the Motorola Razr 2022, which also had a larger external screen. For Oppo, such a screen allows you to display up to six notifications, take selfies, send pre-written responses, record a voice memo, or answer calls. All powered by a customizable widget system.
As for the internal screen, it is a 6.8-inch Amoled panel that offers a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 120 Hz refresh rate. The brightness seems to be there with a maximum of 1200 cd/m². As for the hinge, Oppo says that it has tested it beyond 400,000 folds and announces that it has been designed more compact and robust than the previous generation (which did not launch with us). 400,000 folds, this allows the smartphone to be opened and closed almost 100 times a day for more than ten years.
The Oppo Find N2 Flip wants to compete with the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in autonomy
The main complaint about the Galaxy Z Flip is its low autonomy: sometimes it’s hard to last a full day with this foldable. Oppo intends to respond to this with a model with a 4300 mAh battery. The manufacturer prides itself that it can last a full day on a single charge. The charge of the Oppo Find N2 Flip, by the way, is 44 W, which recovers up to 50% of the battery in 23 minutes and 100% in less than an hour.
Enough to power the SoC Dimensity 9000+, developed especially for this model. Enough to take full advantage of ColorOS 13, the brand’s latest version of Android 13. The latter also announces four years of major updates and five years of security updates, positioning it alongside Samsung in this area.
Oppo Find N2 Flip price and availability
The Oppo Find N2 Flip is now available for pre-order and will launch this February 28 on Oppo’s online store and at retailers. There will be two colors available: black and purple. A single configuration will be offered, which includes 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM.
