Unlike most smartphone makers, Oppo hasn’t launched a new flagship with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Well, that’s if we don’t take the OnePlus 10T into account. The company keeps Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset for its new foldable smartphones. Yes, after the success of the Oppo Find N, the company is ready for another launch in the foldable segment. This year, we’re expecting two variants – the Oppo Find N2 and the Oppo Find N Flip. The former is a sequel to last year’s foldable, while the latter is an all-new Oppo foldable with a shell-like body. According to a new report, the Oppo Find N2 and its brother will be launched in December.
Digital chat station Tipster, which has an impressive track record, states that the next fold will arrive in December. This is in line with the release of the Oppo Find N, which also took place in December.
Oppo Find N2 Specifications
According to rumors, the Oppo Find N2 will bundle ColorOS 13 directly with Android 13. This may be accurate as the company is already bringing the update to its flagship phones. Moreover, the leaks suggest the use of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Although the first phones with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will appear in December, there is no need to rush. After all, the first foldable files with the SoC will not appear until 2023. The phone will be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Exact display details aren’t clear, but we’re expecting a refresh rate of 120Hz.

The Oppo Find N2 will pack a MariSilicon X NPU, which is Oppo’s self-developed AI noise reduction technology. It also features 4K Ultra Night video recording and is responsible for other camera improvements.
The tipster also confirms that the Oppo Reno9 series is expected later this month. As a result, Oppo fans can expect a series of announcements in the next few months. OnePlus is also expected to launch the OnePlus 11 in January 2023.
The big question is whether Oppo will bring the Oppo Find N2 and Flip to global markets or keep them exclusive to the Chinese market. So far, there are only a handful of brands competing in the global segment of foldable phones, and Samsung is sure to take the lead.
