Oppo has experience with folding phones. In reality, the Find N was introduced and sold in China last year. Oppo appears to be expanding its market this year and getting ready to introduce a brand-new line of foldables under the Find N Fold moniker.
Oppo introduced the Oppo Find N, its first foldable phone, in December of last year. Despite being a China-only release, the device’s build quality received positive reviews in our hands-on.
Contrarily, Oppo has used a new hinge style that virtually gets rid of the crease. When the screen closes, the Flexion hinge leaves some extra room in the hinge to give the screen a larger curve. This works incredibly well in practice, and unless the light is just right, it is almost impossible to notice the crease in this screen.
Nevertheless, there were still a lot of issues to be resolved, particularly on the software front. Oppo appears to be preparing to introduce a new set of foldable phones, one that resembles a tablet and the other that folds into a clamshell, in an effort to improve on this concept (via Pricebaba ). The Find N Fold and Find N Flip are the respective names of the devices. In terms of name and build, this isn’t all that different from Samsung’s existing lineup.
The newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, which also drives the recently released Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 , is rumored to power the Find N Fold and Find N Flip. The new foldables are reported to be called the Oppo Find N Fold, carrying on the moniker of its predecessor. We’ll have to wait to learn more about that in the future.
According to reports, both of these gadgets have been registered with the EUIPO, the European Union Intellectual Property Office. This suggests that the corporation may be bringing these devices to Europe rather than keeping them restricted to China.
Given the ongoing legal battle Oppo is having with Nokia over exploiting their 5G technology patents without paying, this is an interesting issue. Due to this, Oppo and OnePlus have stopped all sales in Germany, and it’s possible that other European nations will do the same shortly.
Given that Samsung currently controls the majority of the foldables industry, Oppo will undoubtedly attract some notice if the Find N Fold and Find N Flip are scheduled for a global launch. No other information will be provided, but the reports suggest that we might start seeing these devices as early as the fall.
