Oppo Find N2 comparison. Find N: What's new in the latest foldable?
Oppo's Find N2 foldable smartphone improves on the Find N2 in terms of display, hinge, performance, and fast charging speeds.
The Oppo Find N2 is the brand's second attempt at a foldable smartphone, but what new features does it have compared to the Find N released a year ago? The Find N2 isn't the only interesting product Oppo has announced at the INNO Day 2022 event. The Chinese manufacturer also unveiled the Find N2 Flip, a clamshell foldable smartphone that will be released globally.
Side by side, Find N2 and Find N look completely different. The new phone is lighter, has a flatter body, and has a redesigned camera island. The Find N's 5.49-inch (1,972 x 988) 60Hz enclosure display has been replaced by a 5.54-inch (2,120 x 1,080) 120Hz screen. It has a peak brightness of 1,350 nits, compared to the previous generation's 1,000 nits. The inner display is still 7.1 inches and is an LTPO panel with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. However, its peak brightness of 1,550 nits is a huge jump over the Find N's 1,000 nits.
Stronger Hinge & Faster Charging
The hinge is one of the most important aspects of a foldable smartphone, and Oppo has made major improvements with the Find N2. The redesigned hinges use higher quality materials such as Carbon fiber and a stronger metal alloy, which Oppo claims has 67 percent fewer creases. Oppo's new foldable phone is also more powerful, as it has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset inside, while the Find N has a Snapdragon 888 chipset. It also has 12GB or 16GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of non-expandable storage. Find N has a maximum memory of 12GB.
For the camera, the Find N2 has a 50MP f/1.8 Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, replacing the Sony IMX766 on the Find N. It swapped out the 16MP ultra-wide camera for a 48MP sensor, while the telephoto camera also got a bump from 13MP to 32MP. The front-facing cameras on the cover display and main display retain 32MP resolution. Another big upgrade is the use of Hasselblad camera technology for color calibration and adjustment, as well as Oppo's proprietary MariSilicon X imaging NPU.
The battery capacity is 4,520mAh, slightly higher than the Find N's 4,500mAh, but the main improvement is the fast charging speed, which has been boosted from 33W to 67W. Unfortunately, the Find N2 loses out when it comes to wireless charging. However, it It does get support for a stylus called the Oppo Pen.
Both phones feature side-mounted fingerprint scanners, face unlock, NFC, Wi-Fi 6, and dual-frequency GPS, the Find N2 also adds Bluetooth 5.3 and support for LHDC. Oppo ships the Find N2 with ColorOS 13 based on Android 13, which means it runs on the latest software. In contrast, the Find N comes with Android 11 pre-installed, even though Android 12 was already official at launch. The Find N starts at 7,699 yen (about $1,103), while the Oppo Find N2 starts at 7,999 yen (about $1,146).
