OPPO Find N2 Flip Set To Flip Australian Smartphone Market
OPPO today announced its first foldable smartphone for the Australian market, the Find N2 Flip. This revolutionary flip device will hit Aussies shores with an RRP of $1,499 and be available for pre-order from the 2nd of March.
Combining the largest cover screen on any flip phone with all-day battery life and SUPERVOOCTM flash charging, Find N2 Flip takes foldables from the fringes to the forefront.
“Empowered by world-class hardware, a flagship camera system with a Sony IMX890 sensor, the incredibly powerful and super efficient 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 9000+, ultra-fast dual-SIM 5G connectivity, and best-in-class charging speeds, Find N2 Flip marks the start of a new chapter for OPPO’s foldable product portfolio and the flip phone segment on the whole,” said OPPO Australia, Managing Director, Michael Tran.
“Find N2 Flip breaks through barriers with the largest cover screen on any flip phone. With it, world-class selfies and flagship photography experiences are made possible. We’re confident that the Find N2 Flip is the premium flagship foldable that Aussies will love,” added Tran.
Redefining the Cover Screen
Measuring 3.26 inches, Find N2 Flip’s cover screen is the largest of any flip phone currently available. Its vertical orientation is a game changer, allowing the Cover Screen to display as many as six notifications in one view – that’s industry-leading. Quickly reply to messages in mainstream messenger apps, toggle settings, record a voice note, answer a call and more – all without opening your phone.
A New Standard Set For Flip Phone Cameras
Find N2 Flip’s flagship 50MP main camera features a large Sony IMX890 sensor with an f/1.8 lens – a strong foundation for incredible imaging. Co-developed with legendary camera manufacturer Hasselblad, Find N2 Flip captures pro-grade colours, a fully featured Professional Mode, and its unique XPAN mode freezes time in a wide, cinematic frame.
Much more than just a photography champion, Find N2 Flip’s in-house imaging NPU, MariSilicon X, boosts night video to capture ultra-clear 4K footage in low light, and you can also hold the phone part-folded and sideways, just like a camcorder for a steadier grip.
Tested to Over 400,000 Folds
Much of what makes Find N2 Flip outstanding is its second-generation Flexion Hinge, which works in harmony with the main display to create a robust folding screen with an incredibly subtle crease. In addition to being incredibly subtle to the eye, the crease also feels virtually imperceptible to the touch for an uninterrupted flat-screen experience.
The phone has also been independently certified by TÜV Rhineland to withstand over 400,000 folds and unfolds at standard room temperature. That’s equivalent to opening and closing the phone around 100 times a day for more than ten years.
The Longest Lasting and Fastest Charging Flip Phone
Find N2 Flip fits a large 4,300mAh battery in its compact body. This is the biggest battery in any flip phone by a huge margin, resulting in reliable all-day battery life. OPPO also worked closely with MediaTek to optimise the Dimensity 9000+ chipset for Find N2 Flip.
OPPO also includes the fastest charging of any flip phone on Find N2 Flip – 44W SUPERVOOC – taking the battery from nearly empty to 50 per cent in just 23 minutes and up to 100 per cent in less than one hour.
The Longest Android OS and Security Support
In addition to world-class hardware, OPPO Find N2 Flip is also a huge step forward with the software experience for flip smartphones. It runs OPPO’s latest ColorOS 13 specifically optimised for the new form factor, taking full advantage of the large cover screen, Flexform Mode and a lot more. It is also OPPO’s first phone to offer four years of major ColorOS updates and 5 years of security updates, joining the ranks of the longest support in any Android phone.
Fusing Technology with Style
With polished aluminium sides, a fingerprint-resistant glass cover and a unique micro-etched wave pattern across the hinge, Find N2 Flip has a stunningly simplified design that is available in two colours: Astral Black and Moonlit Purple.
Weighing just 191g and measuring only 7.45mm in thickness, Find N2 Flip is thin and light. The device’s immense 6.8-inch E6 AMOLED display is picture perfect, with its cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio and smooth 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Viewability is also excellent across various environments thanks to an advanced anti-reflection film and up to 1600 nits of peak brightness.
Pricing and Availability
The OPPO Find N2 Flip in Astral Black and Moonlight Purple is available to pre-order from the 2nd of March 2023 at $1,499 from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
