Oppo Find N3 Flip is the first triple-camera flip phone

The clamshell foldable is launching with Hasselblad cameras and an alert slider

Oppo Find N3 Flip

Oppo has unveiled the Find N3 Flip, a follow-up to last year’s Find N2 Flip, which happens to be our favorite clamshell foldable. Oppo released a series of images of the Find N3 Flip, which is bound for a global release following its launch in mainland China today.

Oppo describes the Find N3 Flip as the device that “rewrites the flip phone rulebook” – especially when it comes to cameras. The reality is that, in comparison to slab phones of similar price, flip phones have less-than-stellar camera performance.

Fortunately, the Oppo Find N3 Flip ups the ante in terms of camera performance on a flip phone. To that effect, the Find N3 Flip has a new circular camera bump, or “cosmos ring” that houses a trio of Hasselblad-branded cameras on its cover. There’s a 50-megapixel main, an 8-megapixel ultrawide, and a 32-megapixel telephoto. That makes the Find N3 Flip the first clamshell-style foldable with three cameras on its cover.

And based on our experience testing the previous generation Find N2 Flip, we anticipate that the Find N3 Flip’s camera performance will likely beat out the Motorola Razr+ and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.

Speaking of its competitors, while the Galaxy Z Flip5 and the Razr+ do sport much larger display cover screens, Oppo has opted to stick with the same 3.26-inch vertical cover screen as its predecessor. However, we’re not fussed, because based on our experience using the N2 Flip, we think that its vertical cover screen offers just the right amount of screen real estate to be useful for widgets. Some of the apps that work with widgets include Spotify, TikTok, YouTube, Gmail, Reddit, and Google Maps.

What’s new here is that Oppo is actively working on bringing additional app widgets to the cover display. Also, the interactive pets widget is going from 2D to 3D.

The inner display of the Find N3 Flip is also the same great display as its predecessor; it’s a 6.8-inch 120Hz refresh rate display. However, they have further improved the zero hinge gap design, which is practically creaseless.

But otherwise, the design of the Find N3 Flip isn’t the same as its predecessor. While most flip phones are boxy, the Find N3 Flip now sports precision curved glass edges (74.5 degrees) for a sleeker look and borderless feel that allows for a better in-hand experience. There’s also a new alert slider for setting silent, vibrate, and ring settings.

Under the hood, the device is once again powered by a capable Mediatek Dimensity 9200 chipset.

When it comes to battery, the device is powered by a 4300mAh battery. There’s also 43W Supervooc flash charging which charges the device to 50% in about 53 minutes. But once again, we’re disappointed that they didn’t include wireless charging.

The Oppo Find N3 Flip will be available in a choice of black, cream gold, or misty pink. Pricing has not been announced, but the device is slated for a global release.

Overall the Find N3 Flip is looking out to be a fine but not revolutionary upgrade over its predecessor. And that’s ok, after all – it’s only been half a year since the Find N2 Flip launched, and the N2 Flip nearly knocked it out of the park.
