Coming as a slightly more affordable alternative to the Find N, launched to compete with the Galaxy Fold and Mix Fold series, the Oppo Find N2 Flip will feature a much more compact design, highlighted with a sufficiently powerful hardware setup.
According to rumors, the Oppo Find Flip will be unveiled on December 14 as one of the most compact foldable phones to date, equipped with a 3.26-inch external display. Thus, the foldable screen will reach a diagonal of 6.8 inches (comparable to a conventional candybar design smartphone) only in extended mode. Thus, the folding mechanism is deployed horizontally, as in the Motorola RAZR series.
Appearing in a bulky protective casing specially designed to hide design features, the phone comes with a mid-level configuration based on a Dimensity 9000 series chipset. Even if it won’t impress on the performance side, the Oppo Find N2 Flip might have quite a few strengths on its side, starting with the competitive price.
According to rumors so far, the phone comes with 50MP main camera (Sony IMX766), and 8MP ultrawide camera (Sony IMX355). The front camera will be a Sony IMX709, with 32MP resolution.
The battery responsible for supporting the two OLED screens and the Mediatec chipset will deliver a total capacity of 4300 mAh, spread over two Li-ion cells (one for each half of the case.
It only remains to be seen whether the Chinese manufacturer will manage to deliver the new foldable phone outside the Asian markets, as it is already common practice for such companies to start with limited series, then wait for sales figures and market reaction, before moving on to potentially risky global launch initiatives.
