Early Verdict

Oppo’s Find N2 may share some similarities with the Galaxy Z Fold series, but with its stouter dimensions, it’s different enough to stand out. We’re also delighted that the foldable’s cameras aren’t being neglected, with Oppo adding Hasselblad highlights to its Find N series’ solid camera hardware.

2022 has been the year of Chinese brands taking the foldable fight to Samsung, and the Oppo Find N2 is the latest in a line of impressive two-in-one style smartphones that transform from traditional candybar to tablet with an unfold.

With a similar, horizontally folding design to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Find N2 is larger than clamshell phones like the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Find N2 Flip, the latter launched alongside the N2. Despite this, it’s still light, weighing less  than any other horizontally folding phone.
