Between the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, and the Motorola Razr 2022, it’s been a great year for foldable phones, but the year isn’t quite over yet, and two more notable foldables might land before 2023.
We’re talking, of course, about the Oppo Find N2 and the Oppo Find N2 Flip – Oppo’s rumored rivals to the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, respectively.
From what we’ve heard about them so far, they could be extremely accomplished, and soon we should know everything about them, as they’re reportedly just days away. Below, you’ll find everything we’ve heard so far about the Oppo Find N2 series.
Cut to the chase
What is it? The next foldable Oppo phonesWhen is it out? Possibly December 15How much will it cost? Unclear, but expect a high price
Oppo Find N2 release date and price
That’s apparently one day after the start of Oppo’s annual Inno Day event, and the timing would make sense, as we’ve seen devices get unveiled at this event in the past, not to mention the company’s original Oppo Find N foldable was unveiled on December 15 last year.
Plus, Digital Chat Station – another reputable leaker – had previously posted on Weibo saying these phones would land in mid-December. So December 15 is looking very likely.
It’s worth noting, though, that this launch might just be for China. If and when we’ll see these phones in other regions is uncertain, though leaker @UniverseIce has claimed that the Oppo Find N2 Flip will be available globally, while the Find N2 won’t be.
There’s no news on what the Oppo Find N2 might cost, but the original Find N retailed for ¥7,699 (around $1,100 / £910 / AU$1,650), so it’s possible that the upcoming model will have a similar price – though conversions are unlikely to be accurate anyway.
We have even less idea of what the Oppo Find N2 Flip might cost, but @UniverseIce has said it won’t cost more than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which starts at $999.99 / £999 / AU$1,499.

Oppo Find N2 design and display
We know a lot more about the design of the Oppo Find N2 Flip than the standard Find N2, because renders and even a brief hands-on video of the Flip have leaked.

The phone is clearly in a case here, so some details are hidden, but you can see a design that’s similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, but with a larger cover screen. There also appears to be a dual-lens camera.
Want to see it without a case? Twitter user @yabhishekhd has shared the image below, which shows off the same design.

According to Digital Chat Station, the Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 3.26-inch OLED cover screen, which would make it a lot bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4’s 1.9-inch one. It also apparently has a 6.8-inch 120Hz foldable OLED screen, with a 1080 x 2520 resolution.
As for the standard Oppo Find N2, the same source in another post claims this has a 7.1-inch 120Hz foldable display. In yet another post, they claimed that the resolution was 1792 x 1920, and that the Find N2 has a 5.54-inch 1080 x 2120 cover display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Interestingly, they also say that Oppo has made units with a leather finish, but that most versions currently use glass, so it’s not clear whether the leather version will make it to retail.
It will also apparently weigh less than 240g, according to @UniverseIce, which is light for a foldable phone. For comparison, the original Oppo Find N weighs 275g, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs 263g, and even the non-foldable iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs 240g.
Another source, going by the name ‘experience more’, has got more specific, saying that it weighs 233g in the leather version and 237g for the glass model. They also claim the Oppo Find N2 Flip weighs 191g.
Oppo Find N2 camera and battery
In posts spotted by Playfuldroid, Digital Chat Station has also shed some light on the Oppo Find N2’s camera, claiming that it has a 50MP main sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide one with a 114-degree field of view, and a 32MP telephoto one with 2x optical zoom.
These are apparently the same cameras as the upcoming OnePlus 11, which is notable because foldable phones don’t always match conventional flagships for camera prowess.
The source adds that the Oppo Find N2 apparently has optical image stabilization (OIS) on its main lens, and benefits from Hasselblad camera optimizations. The Find N2 also apparently has a 32MP selfie camera on each screen.
The Oppo Find N2 Flip meanwhile might have a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide one, and a 32MP front-facing one, according to Digital Chat Station in another Weibo post.
In the same post they claim that the Oppo Find N2 Flip has a 4,300mAh battery, which might charge at 44W, while they’ve elsewhere said that the standard Find N2 has a 4,520mAh one, believed to offer 67W charging according to another source.
Oppo Find N2 specs and features
The Oppo Find N2 has a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, according to Digital Chat Station, which is the top Android chipset of 2022 (other than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which hardly anything uses, yet). They also say that it has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and will run Android 13, with Oppo’s ColorOS 13 interface over the top.
A leaker has also posted screenshots seemingly from the phone, which show 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Elsewhere, leaker ‘experience more’ posting on Weibo claims that the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset in the phone will be underclocked, so it might be a bit less powerful than normal.
As for the Oppo Find N2 Flip, that’s also expected to run Android 13 overlaid with ColorOS 13, and to have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, but other specs may differ. Reportedly it has a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus chipset according to ‘experience more’ in the same post as above.
A few sites are also reporting a Dimensity 9200 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage, but it’s not clear where those specs came from. Regardless, these are shaping up to rank among the best foldable phones.
