Oppo Find N3 Flip Launches In China, Global Release Date Unknown
Oppo Find N3 Flip

Oppo has officially unveiled the Find N3 Flip in China. BrandSpur Nigeria reports that tt arrives six months after sales of the Find N2 Flip predecessor began internationally, and just a month after Samsung’s global launch of the Galaxy Z Flip.

A global release date and price hasn’t been provided for the Find N3 Flip, but Oppo claims in a press release that it’ll be “coming soon” to international markets. It’s also unclear if Oppo will release the N3 in the US, unlike the N2 Flip.

While sporting a similar clamshell design to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, Oppo’s offering differs in its camera array which might give it an edge. Compared to the Z Flip 5’s 12 megapixel main camera and a 12 megapixel ultrawide, the Find N3 Flip features a new Hasselblad-branded triple-camera setup located on the rear of the phone, similar to that featured on Oppo’s Find X6 Pro. It provides a 32-megapixel telephoto, a 48 megapixel ultrawide with 114 degree field-of-view, and a 50-megapixel main camera, alongside a 32-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Oppo Find N3 Flip has 12GB of memory and is available in two variants: one with 256GB of storage for 6,799 yuan (around $932) and another with 512GB for 7599 yuan (around $1,042). If that’s reflective of actual international pricing, then the N3 Flip will be similarly priced to Samsung’s $999 Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the $999 Motorola Razr Plus.

The full specifications of the device aren’t officially available in English yet but we’ve been able to scrape some key bits from the Chinese-language product page. The phone has a combined thickness of around 16.4mm (around 0.6 inches) which slims down to 7.8mm (around 0.3 inches) when opened, which is slightly chunkier than the Z Flip 5’s respective 15.1mm folded / 6.9mm unfolded thickness. The weight sits at 198 grams (around 6.9 ounces) compared to the Z Flip’s 187 grams (6.5 ounces).

The Find N3 has a 6.8-inch 403ppi internal screen that features a 120Hz refresh rate, and an external 3.26-inch cover display with a pixel density of 250ppi. Comparatively, the Z Flip 5 has a slightly smaller 6.7-inch 120Hz internal display with a higher pixel density of 425ppi, while the cover display is much larger at 3.4 inches, with a pixel density of 306ppi.

The Find N3 Flip is still rocking a 4,300mAh battery that can be fast-charged at up to 44W, just like the prior N2 Flip model. It also features the much-loved three-stage alert slider (which allows users to quickly switch between media notification settings) found on devices from its OnePlus subsidiary.

Besides the phone itself, Oppo is also selling a neat little case for the Find N3 flip that features a looping strap that should make the phone easier to hold and position on a flat surface. Prices for the case start from 199 yuan (around $27).
