Pricing and Availability, and My Take on OPPO Find N3 Series |

I have just attended the OPPO Global Launch event held in Singapore. If you are looking for a foldable with flagship camera capabilities, you need to check out the OPPO Find N3 Series.

The lighting and feel about the event are on-point.

My key takeaways after attending the event and playing with the OPPO N3 and the OPPO N3 Flip are: –

  • OPPO wants to marry flagship quality into foldables especially the camera capabilities (first to have optical zoom on a foldable).
  • OPPO N3 Flip is targeted for people who want a foldable with style and not compromising quality.
  • OPPO N3 is for those who want to maximize productivity on their phone with PC-like familiarity.
  • OPPO is definitely not shy to target their competitors (shown during the presentation)
  • OPPO is addressing some pain-points on the current foldables in the market (e.g. camera quality, useability of the additional screens, folding lines).

Both Find N3 and Find N3 Flip will be available for pre-order from 11AM SGT, 20 October 2023 to 27 October 2023 and will be available for sale islandwide in Singapore from 28 October 2023.

OPPO Find N3 and Find N3 Flip Smartphones Launch Globally Unlocking a New Level of Foldable Excellence

Find N3 and Find N3 Flip make their global debut right here in Singapore, with both introducing breakthrough technologies in the foldable category

October 19, 2023, SINGAPORE – OPPO, the world’s leading smart device brand, today announced the global launch of its Find N3 and Find N3 Flip foldable smartphones. The latest devices deliver breakthrough experiences in imaging, design, and usability, empowering customers to expect more from their next foldable.

Commenting on the launch, Pete Lau, SVP and Chief Product Officer of OPPO, said, “Our goal at OPPO is to create the best, and that’s what we’ve done with Find N3 and Find N3 Flip. A big-screened foldable should always be a pleasure to use, so Find N3 has two clear, bright, comfortable, rich-looking displays; neither screen is a compromise. We also believe that premium smartphones should have incredible cameras; yes, even flip phones. So, both Find N3 and Find N3 Flip can capture life’s precious moments without missing the fine details.”

“Underpinned by flagship performance and features that matter most to our customers, Find N3 and Find N3 Flip are ready to empower creativity, productivity, and self-expression, unlocking a new level of foldable excellence,” he added. 

OPPO’s Latest Foldables at a Glance

Find N3 combines a thin and light design with an elevated aesthetic. Its two flagship screens are not only the sharpest and brightest of any foldable, but also of a comfortable size. It is the first foldable to feature a pro-grade imaging system; its advanced camera new stacked pixel technology, is combined with Hasselblad tuning and modes, along with ColorOS 13.2’s next-generation capabilities for PC-level productivity in your palm. Add uncompromising performance, battery life, and charging speeds, and Find N3 delivers a best-in-class two-inone experience in a striking-looking, slimline package.

Find N3 Flip also brings a series of firsts to its category: the flagship triple-camera flip phone and a telephoto lens. Beyond just a fantastic camera, the upgraded vertical cover screen introduces third-party app support to the series, and a refined ColorOS 13.2 combines with premium styling and flagship performance to lay the foundation for an awesome smartphone and a new standard of flip phone.

OPPO Find N3

The Clearest and Brightest Foldable Screens

For a brilliant view, be it open or closed, Find N3’s two large, comfortable-to-use screens are the clearest and brightest of any foldable. Building on Find N and Find N2’s Golden Ratio displays, Find N3’s screens are taller, creating a 6.3” outer screen, and a 7.8” unfolded screen. When closed, Find N3 looks like a traditional bar-type smartphone, but when opened, it transforms into an immersive tablet.

Both of Find N3’s screens display are over 425 pixels per inch for flagship clarity, and the 1440Hz PWM dimming ensures they are comfortable to use, even for long periods. The LTPO technology also allows for a smooth 1-120Hz dynamic refresh rate for fluid scrolling and gameplay, at up to 2,800 nits peak brightness. This ensures that Find N3’s screens are easy to see even in direct sunlight. In addition, there is a self-healing layer to smooth out scuffs, making Find N3’s unfolded screen almost crease-free for an uninterrupted view. 

On its sound, it is equipped with three powerful speakers that makes left- and right-channel stereo sound possible when the device is held horizontally or vertically. It is also 30% louder than its main competitor, with 100% superior bass reproduction for a richer sound, while Spatial Audio from its powerful speakers or headphones ensures Find N3 is the ultimate smartphone for immersive experiences.

Built to Last and Styled to Perfection

OPPO’s third-generation Flexion Hinge lies at the core of Find N3’s thin, light body. Not just smaller than the previous generation hinge, it is also more durable. Adding to its durability is its IPX4 splash resistance and Find N3 is also the first phone to be independently tested to withstand 1 million folds by TÜV Rheinland.

Complementing this world-class durability is Find N3’s premium design – elegant and thin at 5.8mm when open and 11.7mm when closed. Weighing just 239g in vegan leather, it is lighter than some traditional bar flagships, and with its easy-to-grip flat sides and curved corners, feels perfectly natural to hold and use.

Find N3’s confident, axisymmetric design looks magnificently balanced, with its camera echoing Find X6’s iconic Cosmos Ring design. It is available in two colours: Champagne Gold (glass back), and Classic Black (vegan leather back).

Three Pro-grade Cameras for Iconic Photography

OPPO changes the face of foldable photography with Find N3’s three pro-grade cameras, covering three popular full-frame equivalent focal lengths: 14mm, 24mm, and 70mm.

Debuting Sony’s 48MP[1] LYTIA-T808 sensor on foldables, this two-layer stacked CMOS image sensor creates more space to receive light, resulting in reduced noise, superior dynamic range, and richly detailed photos and videos.

Find N3’s 48MP ultra-wide camera is powerful and versatile. Its sensor is over 100% larger than the ultra-wide sensors in other flagship foldables, and with autofocus, captures dynamic macro shots as well as expansive landscapes and group shots.

When you need to zoom, Find N3’s ultra-thin periscope telephoto camera combines a 64MP resolution with a fast f/2.6 aperture for shots loaded with detail whether taken in the day or night.

Portrait photography is at the heart of Find N3 and Find N3 Flip, with both phones enhanced with Hasselblad Portrait Mode. OPPO Computational Photography engine also underpins both phones’ class-leading quality, balancing excellent dynamic range with natural-looking results.

PC-level Productivity in Your Pocket

Running Android 13 with ColorOS 13.2, Find N3 will receive four years of software updates and five years of security updates. This is all part of OPPO’s commitment to delivering a long-lasting, quality experience, both in terms of hardware and software. 

OPPO has also reimagined the big-screen foldable experience for Find N3.

The Global TaskBar with App Library and File Pocket ensures recent files and apps are always within easy reach. To power PC-level productivity in your palm, OPPO pioneered the Boundless View. This empowers users to flow effortlessly across two full-screen apps on Find N3’s 7.8” screen.  

With Boundless View for three apps, it is easy to work across three tall apps, with two appearing on-screen alongside one another, and a third off-screen. Simply tap the offscreen app to bring it into view.

15” Boundless View displays all three apps with a 7.8” tablet view for maximum focus on one app at a time, while still multitasking naturally between all three. Easily access an interactive overview of your active apps with a four-finger pinch, for a 15” view in your palm.

Peace of Mind and Incredible Performance

OPPO puts privacy at the core of the Find N3 experience, with Sound-Sealed Call preventing anyone nearby from hearing your phone calls, and a dedicated security chip protecting files at a hardware level. This way, user data on the Find N3 can only be accessed by its user.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, it delivers 35% improved performance and a 40% boost in overall efficiency versus last-generation chipsets. Together with 512GB UFS 4.0 storage and 16GB LPDDR5X RAM, expect true flagship gaming and multitasking. Find N3 can also keep over 40 apps running in the background thanks to OPPO’s Dynamic Computing Engine.

A large 4800mAh battery ensures reliable day-long power, and with class-leading 67W SUPERVOOC™ fast charging, Find N3 will not keep you waiting when you need to top-up and go. A short 30-minute charge delivers 80% power, and it charges to 100% in just 42 minutes.

OPPO Find N3 Flip

Do More on Find N3 Flip’s Powerful Cover Screen

Navigating Find N3 Flip’s cover screen mirrors navigating a familiar smartphone for a seamless, complementary experience. Refined and upgraded, the cover screen now features time-saving new wallpapers that showcase real-time information at a glance while displaying handy quick shortcuts. 

Find N3 Flip’s cover screen supports third-party apps, so Google tools like Gmail, Wallet, and Maps, as well as favourites like Grab, Telegram, TikTok, X (formerly Twitter), WeChat, WhatsApp, and more, can all be used whether Find N3 Flip is open or closed. 

OPPO’s cheeky, playful Interactive pets are also coming to life – evolving from 2D on the previous Find N2 Flip, to 3D on the new Find N3 Flip. Now, there are more pets to pick from, including a Panda, Koala, Tiger, Dog, Bird, Rabbit, and Cat; a perfect way to brighten up your cover screen.

Find N3 Flip’s vertical cover screen also displays more notifications and quick settings compared to other flip phones with wider displays, so you can see more with just a glance. It is also the same orientation as Find N3 Flip’s camera sensor, so it captures photos with virtually no crop, for the highest quality selfies possible.

The First Flip Phone Telephoto Camera for Incredible Portraits

Find N3 Flip is the first flip phone with a flagship triple camera and the first with a telephoto camera. This class-leading imaging system features a 50MP wide, 48MP ultra-wide, and 32MP 2x zoom equivalent telephoto camera.

Find N3’s wide camera’s large sensor, high-resolution, and fast f/1.8 aperture lens matched with OIS captures detail-rich shots with low noise, even in dark and challenging environments.

The ultra-wide camera captures with an expansive 115º field of view and an f/2.2 aperture, and with autofocus, can take striking macro photos, focusing as near as 4cm.

As the only flip phone with a telephoto camera to date, Find N3 Flip captures subjects with optical 2x reach for a portrait-perfect focal length. Combined with Hasselblad Portrait mode, Find N3 Flip’s 2x camera perfectly documents subjects with a flattering, natural look.

Part-fold Find N3 Flip, and your camera will activate in FlexForm Mode. This is ideal for tripod-steady capture on a surface. Preview selfies on the cover screen, using the best camera available to guarantee quality results, and rest Find N3 on a surface for steadied selfies and group shots.

Find N3 Flip Looks Stylish and Feels Fantastic 

Find N3 Flip looks elegant and sits comfortably in hand with the most curved glass of any phone, and its triple camera system is elevated by the Cosmos Ring, adding an extra touch of elegance.

Available in three distinct, tasteful colours – Sleek Black, Cream Gold, and Misty Pink –  there is a Find N3 Flip to match your personal style. And when the 6.8in, 120Hz, AMOLED screen unfolds, it looks bright, vibrant, and deep.

A Secure Fold that can Handle a Splash

OPPO’s upgraded Flexion Hinge for Flip makes Find N3 Flip’s shallow screen crease and zero-gap hinge possible, and with an IPX4 rating, you will not need to worry about life’s splashes.

Whether capturing content or watching a video, Find N3 Flip holds its position in FlexForm mode between 45-120 degrees, and with TÜV Rheinland Reliable Folding Certification, it is independently tested to an incredible 600,000 folds.

Powered by the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9200 and featuring the largest, thickest graphite layer of any flip phone, Find N3 Flip is fast, reliable, and keeps its cool. Its large 4300mAh battery also ensures it lasts a comfortable day, as OPPO’s class-leading 44W SUPERVOOCTM fast charging means you won’t be waiting around for a top-up or full charge.
