With this price, the foldable flip phone has just become available to a wider audience – with a bunch of offers for early adopters available too.
The 7.45mm thick Oppo Find N2 Flip has an industry-leading cover screen, that will allow you to spend almost as much time with the phone folded as open – but once opened, that large interna6.8-inch E6 AMOLED display is a joy to behold, with a 21:9 ratio screen and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.
The phone doesn’t skimp on the camera either, using a flagship 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 sensor with f/1.8 lens – backed up with a secondary 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and 32-megapixel selfie wide angle camera (Sony IMX709) with autofocus. The camera is also tuned by Hasselblad, including pro-grade colours, a powerful professional mode, and the unique XPAN cinematic panorama format.
The second-generation Flexion Hinge also allows the phone to be unfolded at different angles, from 45 to 110 degrees, making for more exciting 4K time-lapse videos. The FlexForm Mode means a partly folded phone can be placed on a surface to do away with the need for a tripod – perfect for group shots.
For peace of mind, the hinge has been rated for over 400,000 folds and the internal screen features a very subtle crease – and the reduced number of parts also means the phone can still pack inside a 4,300mAh dual-battery and support 44W SuperVOOC charging – enough for a charge from 0% to 50% in about 23 minutes – and 100% in under an hour.
While the hardware specs might seem less important for a phone in this market segment, don’t worry, the Find N2 Flip comes with MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 9000+ SoC – meaning you’ll still be able to game and perform other power-hungry applications on this phone, meaning it is very much form and function.
