Exactly a year on since revealing its first folding phone, Oppo has announced a follow-up simply called Oppo Find N2. The new Oppo Find N2 retains the awesome form factor and design of the Find N but with several improvements in the area of the display, hinge design, processor (obviously), and imaging.

The Oppo Find N2 also has a tri-camera setup but in a different layout and of course, higher resolution sensors. The main snapper appears to be carried over from its predecessor, which is a 50 MP camera with f/1.8, 84-degree of FoV, 6P element, and support AF and OIS.

However, the two other cameras got upgraded to a 48 MP ultra-wide angle camera (f/2.2, 115-degree FoV, 6P, AF) and a 32 MP telephoto camera (f/2.0, 49-degree FoV, 6P, AF). Previously, they were a 16 MP ultra-wide angle (f/2.2, 123-degree FoV, 5P, Fixed Focus) and 13 MP telephoto (f/2.4, 45-degree FoV, 5P, AF).

Moreover, the new camera system benefits from Hasselblad Mobile Imaging System – in addition to Oppo’s self-developed MariSilicon X Imaging NPU chip. The front-facing camera remains at 32 MP with f/2.4 aperture and 5P lens but with a wider FoV at 88.5°.

Interestingly, while this device is not powered by the latest Snapdragon chip; it runs on the 8+ Gen 1 chip instead. And does not enjoy faster memory and storage like the Xiaomi 13 Series announced recently. The Find N2 is still on LPDD5 and UFS3.1 too.

On the display department, the secondary display gets the biggest boost with a tad larger 5.54-inch (as opposed to 5.49-inch on the Find N) screen. Furthermore, the secondary display now supports a 120 Hz refresh rate and has a higher resolution of FHD+ (2,120 x 1,080 pixels).

Meanwhile, the main display is a variable refresh rate (1-120 Hz) WUSXGA (1,920 x 1,792 pixels) display. Brightness has been bumped up too. The main display has a peak brightness of 1,550nit and the secondary display peaks at 1,350nit. On Find N, both displays peaked at 1,000nit.

Both displays are flexible AMOLED with the main display rocking a UTG (so-called ultra-thin glass) and the outer display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 7. And then there’s the improved hinge which is 34% lighter and reduces fold lines by 60%.

Now, I am totally intrigued. It was said that the fold lines on the Find N were almost non-existence and therefore, this would mean it is almost invisible on the Oppo Find N2. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case.

The new hinge, which is constructed from aerospace-grade materials, is touted to be lighter, and space-saving, and its new design allow it to be stay opened at various angles.

The battery is larger – if ever so slightly – at 4,520 mAh (versus 4,500 mAh) and it supports 67W SUPERVOOC 2.0 fast charging.

As before, it has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and it supports face unlock. Other notables are tri-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, 5G radio, dual SIM (nano), and support 2×2 MIMO, 8 Spatial-stream sounding MU-MIMO.

Did mention that it is 42g lighter than its predecessor at 233g, and even more amazing is, it is actually thinner when folded, at 14.6 mm (vs. 15.9 mm).
