Oppo Find N3: Everything you need to know

    Oppo has been challenging Samsung’s dominance in the folding phone market for a while now.

    The outstanding Oppo Find N2 and Oppo Find N2 Flip smartphones were direct competitors for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, yet the bigger model’s restricted global release ensured the Korean giant maintained its edge thus far.

    However, the Chinese manufacturer has already released the Find N2’s replacement, and you can read all you need to know about the Oppo Find N3 below. But it’s worth noting right away that the phone is nearly identical to the OnePlus Open. Although OnePlus is owned by Oppo, it’s still strange to be able to purchase the same gadget from two separate companies.

    When will the Oppo Find N3 be released?

    • Pre-orders start 20 October

    Oppo did not provide a release date, just stating that pre-orders will begin on October 20.

    Oppo previously debuted its Find N devices in December, as seen by the following generations:

    However, things are different this year because both Oppo and OnePlus announced their new foldable phones virtually simultaneously on Thursday 19 October.

    Oppo streamed the launch live and you can re-watch it on Oppo’s YouTube channel.

    How much will the Oppo Find N3 cost?

    Because the phone was announced in Singapore, the business only offered pricing in Singapore dollars, where it would cost S$2399. This equates to $1,747 in the United States and £1,438 in the United Kingdom. We estimate it will cost $1699, as speculations suggested before the launch, but we won’t know the precise UK pricing until pre-orders begin.

    There are four color options: black, green, red, and gold. The black and red models have a’vegan leather’ back, while the green and gold models have matt glass. Only the Gold model has a camera portion that matches.

    This makes it considerably more than its predecessors:

    • Oppo Find N2 (12GB/256GB) – ¥7,999 (roughly $1150/£930)
    • Oppo Find N (8GB/256GB) – ¥7,699 (approx. $1210/£910)

    If it does cost US$1699, it’ll undercut Samsung and Google’s foldables by $100. You can read our Pixel Fold review for more details on Google’s phone.

    What new features does the Oppo Find N3?

    If you’ve been following the speculations and leaks, you’ll know that the phone’s design was leaked very extensively, along with photographs and specifications.

    It sports bigger outer and inner displays, as well as a triple-rear camera module with a Hasselblad logo.

    The new format brings it far closer to the designs of Samsung and Google, with an exterior 6.3-inch OLED screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1116 x 2484 pixels, and an inside 7.8-inch foldable display with a resolution of 2268 x 2440.

    These are bigger than the Find N and N2’s 5.5-inch and 7.1-inch displays, respectively. Oppo claims that while those were more pocketable than rival foldables, people desired more: the ability to operate up to three applications at once and read documents more effortlessly.

    Both displays exhibit parity as well: they have a peak brightness of 2800 nits, a refresh rate of 1-120Hz, and about the same pixel density.

    The company says it has added a self-healing layer to smooth out scuffs, and that the Find N3’s unfolded screen is almost crease-free for an uninterrupted view.

    Upgraded cameras

    The Find N3’s optics have also received considerable notice. A 50-megapixel Sony LYTIA-T808 main ‘pixel stacking’ sensor, a 48-megapixel ultrawide with a 14mm f/2.2 lens, and a 64-megapixel telephoto camera with a 3x (70mm) stabilised periscope lens compose the triple array. It also has a hybrid digital zoom of up to 6x.

    In terms of selfie cameras, the Find N3 has a 20-megapixel one on the outer display, and 32-megapixel unit in the main inner panel.

    New chipset and battery

    The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor is backed up by a staggering 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. That is the only possible combination.

    The battery capacity is 4800mAh, which is an increase over the predecessors, and it supports 67W SUPERVOOC fast charging, less than the 100W speculations stated. A 30-minute charge provides 80% power, while a full charge takes 42 minutes.

    One speculation said that the phone will have wireless charging, however this proved to be false.

    Boundless View

    ‘Boundless View’ is one of the key program features. This is an attempt to make multitasking simpler, and it is inspired by desktop operating systems such as Windows. When you have two apps active, each might take up half the screen. However, you can configure this split-screen mode such that one program takes up almost the whole screen, leaving a strip of the other app visible so that you can easily tap on it and turn that one to virtually full screen.

    Using the Global Taskbar, a floating app tray, you may open a third program that pushes the other two up to still-usable windows, but you can also leave only short strips to utilize the whole screen (nearly) and return to them with a tap.
