Oppo Find N details
Oppo Find N is a consequence of four years of innovative work, and it went through six ages of models, the organization claimed. The smartphone sports a 5.49-inch OLED show with an 18:9 perspective proportion outwardly. The internal collapsing show, called Oppo Serene Display, measures 7.1 inches when unfurled. It offers a 120Hz revive rate, has LTPO innovation, offers 1,000 nits of pinnacle splendor, and is secured by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The folding display is claimed to provide 60 percent more screen area than a traditional 6.5-inch phone. It also comes with an 8.4:9 aspect ratio.
Both inward and cover displays of the Find N are rated to deliver 10,240 automatic brightness levels using a built-in ambient sensor. The company is also claimed to have fine-tuned both the brightness and color calibration between the inner and outer displays to deliver a consistently smooth experience.
Oppo claims that the smartphone has a 12-layer display structure and features ultra-thin glass (0.03mm). Citing German testing firm TÜV Rheinland, Oppo says that the display can survive over 200,000 folds and has been tested at -20 degrees Celsius. Additionally, Oppo Find N is also claimed to offer up to 80 percent less crease compared to competitors, as per TUV.
The company says that this feat has been achieved by a natively evolved Flexion Hinge which has 136 individual parts. The hinge is also claimed to be responsible for virtually no gap between the panels of the folded screen (0.01mm precision). The hinge also allows Oppo Find N to be used as a laptop, in FlexForm Mode. As per the Chinese company, users can keep the phone folded, at an angle between 50 degrees and 120 degrees.
Chief Product Officer Pete Lau said that the pivot of the Oppo Find N gave a vibe of opening and shutting the door of a Limousine car. The phone also automatically locks the cover display when the inward display is folded in three seconds to maintain user privacy.
Under the hood, Oppo Find N has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The smartphone comes with a 4500mAh battery with 33W SuperVOOC wired charging, which is claimed to juice up 50 percent battery in half-hour, and fully power up the phone in 70 minutes. The smartphone also comes with 15W AirVOOC wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging support as well.
With respect to cameras, Oppo Find N conveys an aggregate of five cameras. There is a triple back camera arrangement that is secured by an artistic focal point plate and involves a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 essential sensor. There is a 16-megapixel sensor matched with an ultrawide focal point and another 13-megapixel sensor combined with a zooming focal point which offers 3x optical zoom. There is a 32-megapixel front camera on the external screen, and another 32-megapixel camera on the inner screen.
Oppo Find N runs Android-based custom software. It offers a Flexform Mode in which the bottom top and bottom screen are automatically divided, to allow users to work in laptop style.
For multitasking, Oppo has introduced a Two-Finger Split gesture in the Oppo Find N. In this feature, a user needs to swipe two fingers in the focal point of the screen, and a multi-screen interface is opened for performing multiple tasks. Users can also save tasks in a split window on the home screen in the form of an icon, and when you tap the icon, it opens in the split-screen format. Oppo claimed that as many as 30,000 apps are already compatible with its split-screen experience.
Oppo Find N also has a four-finger zoom feature that triggers a drifting window when the client squeezes the principle screen with four fingers. There is a Seamless Relay in place as well, which allows users to continue tasks running from unfolded screen to outer screen by just a swipe up on the outer screen. Additionally, there are various keyboard customizations, including a split keyboard for the larger screen.
The Find N also has a Parallel Window mode where users can have a video chat on one side of the folding display and message on the other — simultaneously. Users can also adjust the screen ratio of both sides by a dragging gesture.
Further, Oppo is working with companies including AutoNavi to offer an upgraded in-car navigation system on the Find N by using its folding display. The phone also comes preloaded with a specially designed virtual keyboard that supports handwriting and is backed by a word bank for auto prediction.
The Find N also comes with a custom split-camera UI where users can use the inner display to take photos on one side and then view, share, or delete their most recent photo on the other side.
Different features on Oppo Find N include X-axis linear motor and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support. The back of the Find N and its rear camera module is based on the fluid curve design language of the Find X3. It is also protected by the Gorilla Glass Victus.
Availability choices incorporate 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS/A-GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. The phone also comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and is equipped with dual speakers that are powered by Dolby Atmos.
