In the early 2000s, everyone and their grandmothers had a foldable phone. In the era of smartphones, it is even more important because it now means bending the screen. It’s no wonder, then, that Oppo chose this particular name for its first globally sold foldable, the Find N2 Flip, which we have for you today.
As part of Oppo’s second generation of commercially available foldable devices, the Find N2 Flip joins the Find N2 proper to form a duo similar to the Galaxies Flip and Fold case. The big(-ish) Find N2 remains exclusive to its home market, but the N2 Flip goes global and takes on the Z Flip4 in the Battle of Flips.
The Find N2 Flip is indeed similar to the Galaxy, but it takes its own path in two main areas. Most notable is the Cover Screen — a large (well, big) 3.26-inch unit that opens up more possibilities for case use than the Galaxy’s tiny 1.9-inch screen. It’s even bigger than the Motorola Razr 2022’s 2.7-inch external screen.
Then there’s the chipset – it’s not a Snapdragon like you’d find on the Galaxy. The Oppo Flip goes for the Dimensity 9000+, one of Mediateks’ high-end flagships.

The rest of the bits are closely aligned. Oppo’s regular camera system beats the Galaxy when it comes to the primary module (50MP vs. 12MP), but its ultrawide isn’t quite as good (8MP vs. 12MP). The Razr 2022 has the most capable camera system out of the three, with a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP ultra-wide camera, with AF. The Find has what appears to be the highest-profile selfie camera out of the three, though — for what it’s worth on a device that doesn’t necessarily need a “selfie” camera.
The Find N2 Flip’s foldable screen has a diagonal of 6.8 inches, more or less in line with the other two, though the numbers can be a bit misleading when it comes to handling — more on that on the next page. The Find’s charging specs are some of the fastest in the segment, plus the N2 Flip has the largest battery among its peers. The stereo speakers go without saying, but it’s worth noting that the Galaxy Flip is still the only one here with a proper IP68 rating — the Find isn’t waterproof, not officially at least.

Oppo Find N2 Flip unboxing
The Find N2 Flip, at half its size, arrives in the same box as the Find N2 proper, only off-white as opposed to the larger model’s non-black color (gray, some call it). It also features the same kinetic design that lifts the phone towards you when you open the lid.
Inside, the contents are the same as in the larger phone’s packaging. Well, in principle, at least – the case is clearly different. We were given 2 extra clear plastic covers – one for each half of the research. The top half has a comically large cutout for the external display, but that’s when you have the largest external display on the market.
The charger and cable that goes with it are actually the same — that means the Flip charges with a 67W adapter, even though it’s only rated for 44W charging.
