Before we get to all the ways Oppo has improved the second-generation foldable, let’s get the unboxing out of the way. The Oppo Find N2 comes well-stocked – better than its predecessor.
There’s a 67W charger, a USB cable, a cleaning cloth, and a case made of two parts.
Compared to its predecessor, the Oppo Find N2 is slightly narrower – 72.6mm vs 73mm, slightly thinner – 14.6mm/7.4mm vs 15.9mm/8.0mm, and lighter – 233g vs 275g.
The weight is the most impressive improvement and it’s down to the new hinge. It has fewer parts – 100, down from 138 – and it uses more advanced materials.
Both displays appear the same, but have tweaked aspect ratios that make them squarer than before. The cover display is still 5.54-inch but supports 120Hz refresh rate now, while the inner display has a 7.1-inch diagonal with the same high refresh rate.
While the Oppo Find N was rounded and glossy, the Find N2 has a flatter frame that’s matte. It makes for better handling and looks better as well.
Like its predecessor, the Oppo Find N2 offers a triple camera as well as two selfie cameras. The main module was upgraded to a Sony IMX890, a 50MP 1/1.56” sensor which sits behind an f/1.8 24mm lens with OIS. This replaces the equally-sized IMX766.
The ultrawide camera got an even bigger upgrade with the 48MP IMX581, a 1/2” sensor, behind an f/2.2 14mm lens. As a reminder, the original N had a 16MP 1/3.09” sensor. Then there’s the telephoto camera, which made the switch to the 32MP IMX709 sensor (1/2.74”, up from 13MP 1/3.4”).
There seemingly wasn’t time enough to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 inside the Find N2, so instead it got a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. It’s still a very capable chip, so you shouldn’t worry about performance.
The Oppo Find N2 lacks one feature its predecessor had – wireless charging. It’s a bit of a bummer, but not as much as the lack of availability outside of China. We do hope Oppo will bring the Find N2 to the global market alongside the Find N2 Flip.
