Oppo Find N2 Flip review
In the early noughties, everyone and their grandmother had a flip phone. In the smartphone era, it’s more of a big deal, as it now means bending the screen. It’s no wonder then that Oppo especially went with that name for its first globally sold foldable, the Find N2 Flip, which we have for you today.
Part of Oppo’s second generation of commercially available foldable devices, the Find N2 Flip joins the Find N2 to form a duo similar to the Galaxy’s Flip and Fold situation. The big(-ish) Find N2 remains exclusive in its home market, but the N2 Flip goes international and takes on the Z Flip4 in the battle of Flips.
The Find N2 Flip is actually a lot like the Galaxy, but takes its own path in a few big areas. Most notable is the cover display – a large (well, larger) 3.26″ device that opens up more options and uses cases than the Galaxy’s small 1.9″ screen. It’s even bigger than the Motorola Razr 2022’s 2.7″ external display.
Then there’s the chipset – it’s not a Snapdragon like you’d find on the Galaxy. Oppo’s Flip goes for Dimensity 9000+, one of the advanced Mediateks.

The rest of the bits are more closely aligned. Oppo’s fairly run-of-the-mill camera system beats the Galaxy when it comes to the primary module (50MP vs. 12MP), but its ultra-wide isn’t as good (8MP vs. 12MP). The Razr 2022 has the most capable camera system of the three, with a 50 MP primary and a 13 MP ultrawide, with AF. However, the Find has what appears to be the highest-spec selfie camera of the three – for what it’s worth on a device that doesn’t necessarily need a ‘selfie’ camera.
The foldable display on the Find N2 Flip has a diagonal of 6.8 inches, more or less in line with the other two, although the numbers can be a bit misleading when it comes to handling – more on that on the next page. Find’s charging specs promise some of the fastest top-ups in the segment, and that’s in addition to the N2 Flip having the biggest battery among its peers. Stereo speakers go without saying, but it’s worth pointing out that the Galaxy Flip remains the only one here with a proper IP68 rating – the Find isn’t waterproof, at least not officially.

Oppo Find N2 Flip unboxing
The half-sized Find N2 Flip comes in the same box as the actual Find N2, only off-white as opposed to the larger model’s off-black color (grey, some call it). It also has the same kinetic design that lifts the phone towards you when you open the lid.
Inside, the contents are also the same as in the larger phone’s package. Well, in principle at least – the case is obviously different. We got two pieces of clear hard plastic snap-on covers – one for each half of the find. The top half has a comically large cutout for the outer screen, but that’s what happens when you have the biggest outer screen on the market.
The charger and cable for it are actually the same – meaning the Flip comes with a 67W adapter even though it’s only rated for 44W charging.
