Oppo Find N First Impressions: Folding It the Right Way – Gadgets 360

The Samsung Galaxy Fold series has gone unchallenged in India for the past few years, and we recently saw Samsung really stepping up its game with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (Review). However, Oppo has just revealed one big surprise before we wrap up 2021, which gives us enough reason to rethink whether the Galaxy Z Fold indeed represents the best way to make a large-screen foldable. The Oppo Find N was unveiled a week ago as the company’s first commercially available foldable smartphone, and even though it is on sale only in China, Oppo India sent us a unit to play with for a short while.

Having reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, there are plenty of differences about the Oppo Find N that immediately stand out to me, and in my opinion, make it a better tablet-style foldable. I haven’t spent a lot of time with it, and a full review of this phone won’t be too helpful at this point since it’s not going to launch in India anytime soon, but I do want to point out a few things that I really like about it.

The Oppo Find N feels like a regular (albeit chunky) smartphone when folded


The design of the Oppo Find N is perhaps its biggest talking point since this is where most of Oppo’s R&D efforts have been applied. The Find N is built from premium materials such as glass and aluminium, which you can tell from the moment you pick it up. It’s quite chunky and heavy, but surprisingly, not much more so than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

The first thing you’ll come to appreciate is the familiar form factor. The outer OLED display goes nearly edge-to-edge with the frame and its 18:9 aspect ratio makes it relatively easy to handle and use with one hand. It’s almost as if you’re using any standard smartphone, which just happens to be unusually thick. The outer display only has a 60Hz refresh rate, but once you unfold this phone, you get a much larger 7.1-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Both displays are bright and vivid, support HDR playback, and deliver crisp visuals. Since the Find N is shorter and wider than the Galaxy Z Fold 3, videos automatically fill up more of the screen without you needing to switch the device’s orientation in your hands.

The crease is barely visible on the interior display, making the Oppo Find N quite pleasant to use


Speaking of the folding screen, the Find N uses ultra-thin glass over the OLED panel, but the magic lies in the ‘Flexion’ hinge. Oppo has developed a special mechanism that allows the two halves of the Find N to sit flush against each other, thereby eliminating gaps so dust and dirt can’t easily get through. The hinge also allows for greater tolerance where the display actually folds, so there’s barely any crease when it’s open. You can still see mild …….
