OPPO Find N3 Launched Globally: Get Ready to Unfold Excellence
OPPO has today announced its new Find N3 foldable smartphone will soon hit the Australian market, following a global launch event in Singapore. Delivering breakthrough experiences across imaging, design, and usability, empowering customers to expect more from their next foldable.
Speaking at the global launch of the device, OPPO Australia Managing Director, Michael Tran stated, “As we prepare to introduce the new OPPO Find N3 foldable smartphone to the Australian market, we’re thrilled to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation. The Find N3 is not just a smartphone; it’s a gateway to a new era of mobile experiences.
“Our 2023 performance has been strong, particularly in the premium space where we’ve introduced these new form factors. Building on the local success of the Find N2 Flip earlier this year, we’re confident that the Find N3 will captivate Australian consumers with its stunning design, groundbreaking technology and uncompromised viewing experience.
“We’re excited to see how our new Find N3 will reshape the smartphone landscape in Australia. We believe this device represents the epitome of excellence in the foldable market and we can’t wait to share it with our customers,” added Tran.
OPPO’s new flagship foldable will land in Australia with an RRP of $2,699 and be available from mid-November, with the local launch date set to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Clearest and Brightest Foldable Screens
For a brilliant view whether open or closed, Find N3’s two large, comfortable-to-use screens are the clearest and brightest of any foldable. Building on Find N and Find N2’s Golden Ratio displays, Find N3’s screens are taller, creating a 6.3” outer screen, and a 7.8” unfolded screen. When closed, Find N3 is a traditional smartphone, and when open, it becomes an immersive tablet.
Both of Find N3’s screens display over 425 pixels per inch for flagship clarity, and 1440 Hz PWM dimming ensures they are comfortable to use, even for long periods. LTPO technology makes a smooth 1-120Hz dynamic refresh rate possible for fluid scrolling and gameplay, and with up to 2,800 nits peak brightness, even in direct sunlight, Find N3’s screens are easy to see. By adding a self-healing layer to smooth out scuffs, Find N3’s unfolded screen boasts a barely-there crease for an uninterrupted view.
Three powerful speakers make left and right-channel stereo sound possible, whether the Find N3 is held horizontally or vertically. It’s also 30% louder than its main competitor, with 100% superior bass reproduction for a richer sound, while Spatial Audio from its powerful speakers or headphones ensures Find N3 is the ultimate smartphone for immersive experiences.
Built to Last and Styled to Perfection
OPPO’s third-generation Flexion Hinge lies at the core of Find N3’s thin, light body. Despite being smaller than the previous generation hinge, it’s more durable. In addition to IPX4 splash resistance, Find N3 is the first phone to be Independently tested to withstand 1 million folds by TÜV Rheinland.
Complementing this world-class durability, Find N3’s premium design is elegant and thin at 5.8mm when open and 11.7mm when closed. Weighing just 239g in vegan leather, it’s also lighter than some traditional bar flagships, and with its easy-to-grip flat sides and curved corners, feels perfectly natural to hold and use.
Find N3’s confident, axisymmetric design looks magnificently balanced, with its camera echoing Find X6’s iconic Cosmos Ring design, and will be available in Australia in a Classic Black (vegan leather back) colourway.
Three Pro-grade Cameras for Iconic Photography
OPPO changes the face of foldable photography with Find N3’s three pro-grade cameras, covering three popular full-frame equivalent focal lengths: 14mm, 24mm, and 70mm.
Debuting Sony’s 48MP LYTIA-T808 sensor on foldables, this two-layer stacked CMOS image sensor creates more space to receive light, resulting in reduced noise, superior dynamic range, and richly detailed photos and videos.
When you need to zoom, Find N3’s ultra-thin periscope telephoto camera combines a 64MP resolution with a fast f/2.6 aperture for shots loaded with detail whether taken in the day or night.
PC-level Productivity in Your Pocket
Running Android 13 with ColorOS 13.2, Find N3 will receive four years of software updates and five years of security updates. This is all part of OPPO’s commitment to delivering a long-lasting, quality experience, both in terms of hardware and software.
OPPO has also reimagined the big-screen foldable experience for Find N3. The Global TaskBar with App Library and File Pocket ensures recent files and apps are always within easy reach, and for PC-level productivity in your palm, OPPO pioneered Boundless View. This empowers users to flow effortlessly across two full-screen apps on Find N3’s 7.8” screen.
Incredible Performance Folded In
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, it delivers 35% improved performance and a 40% boost in overall efficiency versus last-generation chipsets, and with 512GB UFS 4.0 storage and 16GB LPDDR5X RAM, expect true flagship gaming and multitasking. Find N3 can also keep over 40 apps running in the background thanks to OPPO’s Dynamic Computing Engine.
A large 4800mAh battery ensures reliable day-long power, and with class-leading 67W SUPERVOOC™ fast charging, Find N3 won’t keep you waiting when you need to top-up and go. A 30-minute charge delivers 80% power, and it charges to 100% in just 42 minutes.
Pricing and Availability
The OPPO Find N3, RRP $2,699, will be available in Classic Black with availability and the local on-sale date to be announced within the coming weeks.
