Oppo Find N Foldable Smartphone with Dual-Display Launching on December 15

The Oppo Find N appears to resemble the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series devices, with a full-screen cover display and an in-folding main one.


Oppo Find N has been officially confirmed as the company’s upcoming foldable smartphone. Announced in an open letter by the company’s present chief product officer and OnePlus’ erstwhile head, Pete Lau, the Oppo Find N has also been confirmed to be launching on December 15. The latter will be the second day of the company’s annual event, called Oppo Inno Day 2021. Oppo has also published a tweet teasing how the smartphone looks like, giving us a fair idea in terms of what to expect.

In his open letter, Lau says, “In the past, smartphone evolution focused on the display panel, first combining a small display with a big keyboard, and evolving to today’s full-screen smartphones. But in an era where everyone has a phone with similar configurations, the smartphone experience has come to a standstill. If we can find a way to break through the bottleneck of smartphone displays, we could once again revolutionize efficiency and interactivity.”

“As early as April 2018, the first generation of the Find N prototype was born internally. Although a handful of other brands have already introduced foldable devices to the market, barriers such as utility, durability and user experience continue to prevent foldable devices from becoming a more feasible daily driver for most people,” he further stated.

The Oppo Find N, according to the rumour mill, will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. It may feature an 8-inch LTPO display on the inside, which folds inwards in a mechanism similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold series of smartphones. The folded image shared by Lau also reveals a bump for the camera housing on the rear of the smartphone’s outer shell. Finer details are yet to be revealed, including software enhancements that Oppo may have made to the smartphone for app continuity experiences.

Oppo Inno Day 2021 will also showcase the company’s first, own neural processing unit (NPU), as well as a new generation of its smart augmented reality glasses. Oppo will also showcase a retractable smartphone camera mechanism, as well as its vision and concept of ‘digital humans’.
