Oppo announces its first foldable phone, Find N launch on December 15
New Delhi : Oppo Find N has been announced as the company's first foldable phone in the Indian market. The new smartphone is been promoted as a result of Oppo's four years of R&D and six generations of prototypes. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series, the Oppo Find N has an inward folding design.
The company has also released a teaser of the phone which is believed to be launched in India on December 15. As per teasers, the phone appears to have a metal finish and two different OLED displays, including a foldable one as the primary option.
In an open letter, Oppo Chief Product Officer and OnePlus Founder Pete Lau announced the development of the Oppo Find N.
"With the Find N, we have solved the main pain points in previous foldable smartphones, such as the crease in the display and overall durability of the device, by inventing perhaps the best hinge and display designs available today," Lau said.
The Oppo Find N also seems to have a rounded metal design that looks quite similar to the original Samsung Galaxy Fold. As seen in the teaser video, the phone should come with a USB Type-C port and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
“Although a handful of other brands have already introduced foldable devices to the market, barriers such as utility, durability and user experience continue to prevent foldable devices from becoming a more feasible daily driver for most people. So, when I returned to Oppo last year, I was excited to take over this major project and guide the team to overcome the final hurdles to turn this dream into reality,” he said.
Detailed specifications of the Oppo Find N will be announced once it is launched in the market.
