The true star of the OPPO Finds N3 Flip is its groundbreaking triple-camera setup, a first in the flip phone segment. The triple stack with a 50 MP primary camera, 48 MP Ultra-wide camera, and 32 MP telephoto portrait camera looks quite impressive and gives a camera experience like any other flagship device.

Most foldables in the market today have dual camera setups, which gives the OPPO Find N3 Flip a unique advantage over the competition. The device also comes with Hasselblad Natural Color Solution which allows for better color tuning and tonal enhancements and gives a consistent camera experience across their camera systems.

The Sony IMX890 sensor on the primary camera allows for more light to come in thereby making the camera quite apt for low-light photography. What sets the Find N3 Flip apart from the competition though is its telephoto portrait camera featuring a 32MP IMX709 sensor with 2x optical zoom, which gives a very natural bokeh finish to your portraits. On the front, this camera system is housed in a punch-hole display making the setup extremely versatile and suitable for top-notch video calls, selfies, and 4K 30fps video recording.

Complementing these features is a 114-degree ultra-wide-angle camera with a 48MP Sony IMX581 sensor, offering detailed and noise-free images, even in challenging lighting conditions for those wide-angle shots/group selfies. The camera's autofocus also enables users to capture striking macro photos of subjects as close as 4cm.

It’s not just the tech, but the form factor also adds to the camera experience on this smartphone. The all-new Multi-Angle FlexForm Camera mode lets you hold the flip in a variety of angles to shoot creative selfies, time-lapse shots, and ultra-wide group selfies making the device quite functional. Through the partnership with Hasselblad and working on proprietary algorithms, the OPPO Find N3 Flip offers improved color representation and an enhanced photography experience. Features like XPAN mode and three additional filters - Emerald, Radiance, and Serenity - designed by professional Hasselblad ambassadors can provide users with various features to experiment with the camera.

A design that marries elegance and functionality

The OPPO Find N3 Flip combines both style and functionality seamlessly. It sports a Gorilla Glass Victus cover back that gives the device a sleek and slim appearance. When folded, the Find N3 Flip measures just 85.54mm, making it half the size of a regular smartphone, fitting comfortably into any pocket or purse. Weighing a mere 198g, this device is incredibly lightweight and measures only 7.79mm in thickness when open. The roundness of the edge also makes it comfortable to hold for long. The device is available in two rich colors: Cream Gold and Sleek Black both of which look equally attractive.

A notable addition to this smartphone is the Alert Slider, located on the left edge, allowing users to switch between three modes - Silent, Vibrate, and Ring - without having to open the device, providing greater convenience.

The device features a smooth 120Hz 6.8-inch display with a pixel density of 403ppi. Thanks to its TÜV Rheinland Intelligent Eye Care certification, it employs Eye Comfort Tone technology, using ambient light prediction to ensure eye comfort even after extended use. Furthermore, its multi-layer screen protection utilizes a patented stainless steel mesh matrix to minimize creases, providing a more immersive viewing experience.

Enhanced durability and flexibility

The hinge on the OPPO Find N3 Flip has also undergone significant improvements. The single friction plate from the previous generation has been replaced with a dual friction plate structure to enhance FlexForm stability. This innovation allows users to find their preferred angle with ease and ensures the device stays in the chosen position and looks quite creaseless.

OPPO has reinforced the core load-bearing positions of the device with aircraft-grade high-strength steel. This enhancement significantly improves durability and increases deformation resistance from drops by an impressive 25% when compared to its predecessor, the Find N2 Flip. The device's hinge also boasts a micro-carved flowing texture, a testament to OPPO's commitment to both aesthetics and functionality.

A versatile cover display

The OPPO Find N3 Flip maintains its large 3.26-inch vertical display for the cover screen, a feature continued from the Find N2 Flip. This screen mirrors the main display in proportion, ensuring a seamless user experience. The practicality of this approach is evident, as over 90% of Android apps are designed to work in vertical mode, eliminating compatibility issues associated with square screens.

In a significant improvement over the previous generation, the cover screen now supports over 40 essential apps, including popular choices like Gmail, Outlook, Uber, Google Maps, and YouTube Music. Users can now reply to emails, book cabs, navigate with ease, and even control their music on the go. The cover screen's 17:9 aspect ratio and super-thin 0.3mm bezel make it perfect for enhancing information visibility, allowing users to see more content without the need for excessive scrolling.

Additionally, the cover display also aids in capturing the perfect selfie and adjusting the lighting for flawless shots. This versatile screen offers one-touch replies, speech-to-text, emojis, and a full QWERTY keyboard for easy typing, making it a practical addition to the device.

Users can personalize the cover screen with up to 20 unique styles and three quick access widgets, including Messages, Camera, Battery, Recorder, Timer, and To-dos. Moreover, the OPPO Find N3 Flip introduces an exciting feature: eight digital pets with animated actions that respond to users and their surroundings, adding a fun and interactive aspect to the device.

Weather updates can also be displayed on the cover screen by default, providing real-time information to users. This customization and convenience aspect of the cover screen ensures that the device seamlessly integrates into users' everyday lives.

Great performance

Other than the clamshell form factor and the camera system, the OPPO Find N3 Flip does not disappoint with its performance. 

It comes with OPPO’s coveted rapid charging solution 44W SUPERVOOCTM technology and this takes the 4300 mAh battery less than 56 minutes to go from zero to 100%, or 10 minutes for 21%. This allows you to utilize the device for over a day without having to worry about charging. The industry-leading color-filter-on-thin-film encapsulation (COE) display technology also cuts display power consumption by 20% while elevating the viewing experience. 

You can harness the prowess of the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 processor, built on 4nm technology on the Find N3 Flip which ensures both energy efficiency and seamless operation. Bolstered by 12GB of RAM, it is a powerhouse in your palm. Benefit from an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate that optimizes power consumption while delivering top-notch performance. The OPPO Find N3 Flip delivers a seamless smartphone experience that does not compromise on battery life.
