The Find N2 Flip is OPPO’s first foldable set to launch outside of China
Fingers crossed it makes it to Australia.

OPPO has taken the wraps off its second batch of foldable devices, revealing the Find N2 and its first flip phone form factor device, the Find N2 Flip. While the Find N2 will likely be exclusive to China, the Find N2 Flip will see a global release next year. OPPO has yet to confirm whether this will include Australia however and hasn't indicated pricing.
The Find N2 Flip takes its cues from devices like the Galaxy Z Flip family and the reimagined Motorola RAZR, but has a much larger external display for use when the phone is shut. Measuring in at 3.26-inch, OPPO says this screen is large enough to display up to six notifications at once.
OPPO is also trying to address other pain points with the form factor. It says the crease on the internal display is "practically invisible" and the 4,300mAh battery will last all day. Battery life has consistently been an issue with flip phone-style foldables.
The Find N2 Flip is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset and has a 6.8-inch internal display with a 120Hz refresh rate. In terms of cameras, there's a 50MP primary lens, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 32MP camera. OPPO says it will provide more details about the global version of the Find N2 Flip early next year, presumably including information like RAM and storage.
Meanwhile, the Find N2 is being pitched as the lightest tablet-style foldable. The vegan leather model weighs 233g grams, 42 grams lighter than the original Find N. For comparison, Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs 263 grams, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs 240 grams.
OPPO says it achieved this through the use of carbon fibre in the build and a redesigned hinge. The new hinge makes the display crease narrower and entirely removes the gap when the device is closed.
Otherwise, the design is fairly similar to the original model. It has a 7.1-inch external display and a slightly larger 5.54-inch external display. Both have 120Hz refresh rates.
Other key specifications include a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor (rather than the recently revealed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2) and a 4,520mAh battery with 67W fast charging. You'll find three cameras on the back, including a 50MP primary lens, a 48MP ultra-wide camera, and a 32MP 2x telephoto lens.
At this stage, the Find N2 is not slated for a global release.
