Global smart device brand OPPO recently launched its first-ever flip phone, the OPPO Find N2 Flip. Theseis latest innovations deliver the best product in the market, with technology that focuses on making the flip phone experience unique and seamless. What makes the OPPO Find N2 Flip above the rest is its industry-leading Flexion Hinge which marks a new era in flip phones.

On the new OPPO Find N2 Flip, users can take advantage of the tear-drop-shaped hinge that changes the game for the flip phone technology. It serves as a solid foundation for a compact yet powerful and capable device with its large cover screen and battery.

The next-generation Flexion Hinge

The carefully designed Flexion Hinge is an example of OPPO’s commitment to continuously improving the smartphone industry. The Flexion Hinge is first launched in the Find N series, the first-ever OPPO foldable phone that is packed with powerful performance while maintaining an appropriate weight and size, it remains the best feature for OPPO’s powerhouse flip phone. With the miniaturized hinge of the Find N2 Flip, the smartphone is more compact and light without compromising its important features. It underwent rigorous testing and improvements throughout to deliver the highest quality it has today.

The upgraded hinge also improves upon the core functionality, with a new cam system and 1/4 spindle assembly, so it can hold its form part-folded between 45° and 110°. Its FlexForm Mode lets you hold the phone in your chosen position. You can dive into a relaxing binge-watch, take video calls and capture scroll-stopping photos or videos as if it has a built-in tripod.

The choice of hinge materials has also been refined, with the Find N2 Flip featuring a flexible stainless steel element that is precision etched, and injected with a soft, pliable material.

Aeronautical high-strength steel at the key bearing position ensures the hinge delivers higher reliability, that the tensile strength is up to 15%, and the yield strength is up to 25%. Meanwhile, the aircraft-grade carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer is also there to make sure the hinge is strong but light.

This creates the perfect amount of flex and firmness, whether folding the phone or typing on the display. It also guides the screen into a specific waterdrop fold when the Find N2 Flip is shut, reducing the crease significantly when compared to the competition. The water drop shape has a larger bending radius than the U-shaped hinge, resulting in a lighter crease and lessening screen deformation.

Superior features

The OPPO Find N2 Flip boasts a large cover screen on the front of the phone thanks to the miniaturized hinge in the Find N2 Flip. A smaller hinge also makes a high-capacity, fast-charging battery possible, and its robustness helps to create unique, part-folded experiences and upgrade durability.

The Find N2 Flip features the largest cover screens of any flip phone (foldable phones with clamshell fold), elevating the element from decorative to game-changing. The 3.26" cover screen accounts for 48.5% of the top half of the phone to display more content. When matched with OPPO’s design thinking, the cover screen becomes an easy-to-see, first point of interaction, so you can check in with your phone, and get a snapshot of your digital life at a glance.

See the weather, your notifications, and even reply to messages quickly, then move on – helping you to strike a better digital health balance while staying connected.

Do more with OPPO Find N2 Flip’s cover screen widgets and interactive pets

The Find N2 Flip’s cover screen isn’t just powerful, it’s playful too, introducing new interactive pet wallpapers to add pockets of fun to your day.

Speaking of fun – if you love selfies, you’ve probably used a low-specced dedicated selfie camera in the past, but now with the cover screen together with the help of the Flexion Hinge that can enable your phone to “stand” in a part-folded way, you can preview while you are shooting video with it and also capture clearer selfies with the main camera -- the best camera on your phone.

The Find N2 Flip’s photography highlights don’t stop there. With Dual Preview, give users’ subjects a cover screen preview of themselves, and part-fold the phone to unlock FlexForm Mode – perfect for time-lapses, video calls, and long-exposure photography.

A great camera phone is of limited use if its battery can’t keep up with creativity – but the Find N2 Flip can. While most flip phones feature between 3500mAh and 3700mAh of power – the Find N2 Flip upgrades that capacity to a whopping 4300mAh with a 44W SUPERVOOC flash charging that comes with it for an all-day user experience.

The miniaturized hinge doesn’t sacrifice durability, with the phone having been tested to 400,000 folds by TÜV Rheinland – the equivalent for withstanding normal usage for around 10 years. It’s also been put through extreme conditions, working perfectly after being folded and unfolded 100,000 times at both -20ºC and 50ºC.

It isn’t just the folding mechanism that gives the Find N2 Flip the edge. When shut, the New Generation Flexion Hinge doesn’t feature a hinge gap. This prevents dust and airborne particles from collecting along the crease line, so every time you use it, the screen looks as fresh as when you left it.

Finally, the whole phone looks and feels like a familiar, traditional, compromise-free smartphone when open. The Flexion Hinge and unique Reticular Matrix Plate supporting the screen result in the shallowest crease of any folding phone, making it virtually invisible in most environments. This means you can focus on what’s on-screen, and use the large, high-quality display to watch, game, browse or scroll without compromise.

A new era in flip phones

Thanks to its smaller, New Generation Flexion Hinge, the Find N2 Flip enjoys the largest cover screen, highest capacity battery, and fastest charging of any flip phone. It also creates rich cover screen experiences with that extra size, ranging from playful interactive animals to useful toggles and widgets, and it levels up photography and durability in a host of ways.

So while the hinge of a flip phone might be a single element, its impact is far-reaching, and thanks to OPPO’s game-changing New Generation Flexion Hinge, the Find N2 Flip is a compromise-free breakthrough for the category.
