The Oppo company officially showed a foldable smartphone, the Find N 5G model. After folding, the device has a compact size and looks great. Competitors have nothing to be afraid of.
During the second day of the INNO Day 2021 event, Oppo presented its first foldable smartphone. At first glance, the device looks like a very good alternative to competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. The new folding box has a more handy and more useful size in the folded version.
Two AMOLED displays
Oppo Find N folded has dimensions of 132.6 x 73 x 15.9 mm and decomposes to a size of 132.6 x 140.2 x 7.8-8 mm. The device weighs 275 g. As in the Korean competition, there are two displays. The larger one, foldable, has a diagonal of 7.1 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 1792 pixels. The AMOLED panel can dynamically change the image refresh rate, up to 120 Hz, and its maximum brightness is up to 1000 nits. The cover, in turn, has a 5.49-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 988 x 1972 pixels.
Flexion hinge and FlexForm mode
The Flexion hinge in Oppo Find N consists of 136 components fitted with a precision of 0.01 mm, which is to ensure its smooth operation. The design follows a drop of water and solves some of the biggest problems with foldable devices. The mechanism widens the bend angle of the display and creates a buffer when the display bends, which in turn minimizes the refraction, which is up to 80% less noticeable compared to other such devices. This was confirmed by the TUV institute. This design also virtually eliminates the gap between displays when folded, offering a more integrated look and better protection of the internal display from scratches.
The design of the cam and spring structure inside the Flexion hinge allows the device to operate freely at any angle between 50 and 120 degrees. Along with a number of software features that exploit the potential of the foldable display, the FlexForm mode in Oppo Find N allows users to fully customize the device to their needs.

Oppo has adjusted the user interface to make it work better and more efficiently in compatible applications such as Music, Notes and Camera. For example, in the Notes application, Oppo Find N can turn into a mini laptop. The smartphone can also be used as its own tripod, making 4K content creation, video calling and online meetings easier and hands-free.
Both screens have holes for the lenses of the front cameras with a resolution of 32 Mpix (Sony IMX615, f / 2.4). The rear camera set consists of three units with a 50 Mpix configuration (Sony IMX766, All-Pixel Omni-Directional PDAF, f / 1.8, OIS) + 16 Mpix (Sony IMX481, ultra-wide angle, f / 2.2) + 13 Mpix (Samsung S5K3M5, telephoto, 2X optical zoom, f / 2.4).
The main camera can also be used to take better selfies by using the external screen to preview the image. Such a photo can be taken using hand gestures, making it easy to stay in the frame without pressing the shutter button.
Inside the case there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, supported by 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 or 512 GB of UFS 3.1 mass memory. The device offers a set of modern wireless connectivity standards: 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC. The whole is powered by a 4500 mAh battery with fast 33W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge wired charging and 15W AIRVOOC wireless charging. There is also 10W wireless charging. The factory installed system is Android 11 with a ColorOS 12 interface.
