Folding flagships with the strongest hinge: OPPO unveils Find N3 and Find N3 Flip

Oppo

OPPO has officially announced the global release of its flagship folding smartphones Find N3 and Find N3 Flip, which will soon be available for purchase. Both smartphones look extremely fresh and attractive, plus the manufacturer places special emphasis on the camera system of the new products, as well as the highest level of reliability and durability – this is really important for premium foldable devices.

OPPO focused on the durability of the design, not forgetting about the cameras, stylish design and performance.

For example, the design of this smartphone is based on the third generation Flexion hinge, which, despite its compact size (it is smaller than the Find N2, for example), boasts an increased level of strength. The manufacturer notes that the hinge design includes super-hard liquid metal based on zirconium, and ultimately, according to the results of an independent study by TUV Rheinland, the OPPO Find N3 smartphone can withstand up to 1,000,000 folding and unfolding, while also having IPX4 water protection. Also, due to the reduced hinge, the smartphone turned out to be light (239 grams) and thin (5.8 mm when open and 11.7 mm when closed).

This smartphone also received camera system equipment from Hasselblad and three lenses covering the most popular focal lengths – 14 mm, 24 mm and 70 mm. In addition, the flagship received the latest development from Sony – an advanced CMOS sensor with a resolution of 48 megapixels, which was created specifically for folding smartphones (it optimally uses free space and captures more light, reducing noise levels). The system also has a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera that can be used in a variety of scenarios, and a 64MP telephoto lens with f/2.6 aperture. Special mention should be made of the Hasselblad Portrait Mode, which significantly improves the quality of pictures.

The foldable flagship Find N3 runs on proprietary ColorOS 13.2 firmware based on the Android 13 operating system, supports advanced Boundless View technology (allows you to simultaneously work with two full-screen applications) and attracts attention with truly impressive performance thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Additionally, the system on a chip received 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512 GB of internal UFS 4.0 memory are enough for any modern video games. And, importantly, the smartphone supports 67 W SUPERVOOC fast charging, which allows you to restore 80% of the battery in 30 minutes.

Controlling the functions of the OPPO Find N3 Flip smartphone using its external vertical smartphone has now become much easier – the process is similar to working with a regular smartphone. Also from this display you can access various mini-applications and software from third-party developers, so the messenger can now be used even when the smartphone is closed. And, of course, you can’t go past the interactive pets, which look very funny and allow you to interact with them – there is a panda, a koala, a rabbit and many other animals.

Naturally, the smartphone is also equipped with an advanced three-camera system – there is a 50 MP main camera, a 48 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 32 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. It is worth noting that the main camera of the smartphone has optical image stabilization and takes very detailed pictures without noise, even in poor lighting. The ultra-wide-angle camera with wide aperture allows you to capture a 115-degree field of view, and the autofocus function allows you to take excellent macro photos from up to 4cm away. Hasselblad Portrait technology is also supported, and 2x zoom allows you to capture distant subjects with a natural view.

The smartphone also features OPPO’s advanced and redesigned Flexion Hinge, which makes the smartphone even thinner and the crease less noticeable while providing IPX4 protection. The performance of the smartphone is driven by the MediaTek Dimensity processor, which provides the gadget with flagship performance at quite reasonable temperatures. Under the hood there is also a 4300 mAh battery and support for 44 W SUPERVOOC technology, which allows you to charge your smartphone extremely quickly.

Both OPPO foldable flagships will soon be available for official purchase – information on prices and the start date of sales will appear a little later.
