Folding screen smartphones have become popular a few years ago. But it’s difficult to design and manufacture products in this category. That’s why this field doesn’t develop swiftly. Moreover, there are various types of folding screen smartphones. And when it comes to the clamshell models, the situation becomes worse. However, smartphone makers are doing their best in order to get a piece of cake. OPPO is no exception. Recently, pricebaba reported that OPPO had registered two folding screen smartphones with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). They are called the Find N Flip and Find N Fold.
A Weibo leaker also said that OPPO is developing a new vertical inward folding machine, codenamed “Dragonfly”, which coincides with the OPPO Find N Flip.
On top of that, the Find N Flip is likely to sport Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8+ flagship processor, which is on par with its rivals in terms of hardware. Anyway, this is the most powerful chip in the Android camp. The Snapdragon 8+ adopts TSMC 4nm, which has made a huge breakthrough in performance and energy efficiency compared with the previous generation.
Other than that, the Find N Flip will sport a 120Hz high refresh rate screen. It will also use a new hinge structure, which will reduce the thickness and weight of the device. Thus, it is going to be a thin and light flagship.
The other device – Find N Fold – is going to be the successor to the OPPO Find N, which will feature a book-style folding design similar to the Galaxy Z Fold.
In addition to the new folding flagship, OPPO is also developing the OPPO Band 2 headset and the Find X5 Pro. The latter will sport the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
