In the early noughties, everyone and their grandmother had a flip phone. In the smartphone era, it's more of a big deal since it now means bending the display. No wonder then that Oppo went with that name in particular for its first globally sold foldable, the Find N2 Flip, which we have for you today.
As part of Oppo's second generation of commercially available foldables, the Find N2 Flip joins the Find N2 proper to form a duo similar to the Galaxies Flip and Fold situation. The large(-ish) Find N2 remains exclusive to its home market, but the N2 Flip goes international and takes on the Z Flip4 in the battle of the Flips.
The Find N2 Flip is indeed a lot like the Galaxy, but takes its own path in a couple of major areas. Most notable is the cover display - a large (well, large-er) 3.26" unit that opens more possibilities and uses cases than the Galaxy's tiny 1.9" display. It's even bigger than the Motorola Razr 2022's 2.7" outer screen.
Then there's the chipset - it's not a Snapdragon like you'd find on the Galaxy. Oppo's Flip goes for the Dimensity 9000+, one of the high-end Mediateks.Two Flips side by side: Galaxy Z Flip4 (left) next to Find N2 Flip
The rest of the bits are more closely aligned. The rather run-of-the-mill camera system of the Oppo beats the Galaxy when it comes to the primary module (50MP vs. 12MP), but its ultrawide isn't as good (8MP vs. 12MP). The Razr 2022 has the most capable camera system of the three, with a 50MP primary and a 13MP ultrawide, with AF. The Find does have what appears to be the highest-specced selfie camera of the three, though - for what that's worth on a device that doesn't necessarily need a 'selfie' camera.
The foldable display of the Find N2 Flip has a 6.8-inch diagonal, more or less in line with the other two, though the numbers might be a bit misleading when it comes to handling - more on that on the next page. The Find's charging specs promise some of the fastest top-ups in the segment, and that's in addition to the N2 Flip having the largest battery among its peers. Stereo speakers go without saying, but it's worth pointing out that the Galaxy Flip remains the only one around here with a proper IPX8 rating - the Find isn't water resistant, not officially at least.

Oppo Find N2 Flip unboxing
Half-size as it may be, the Find N2 Flip arrives in the same box as the Find N2 proper, only off-white as opposed to the bigger model's off-black livery (gray, some call it). It also features the same kinetic design that lifts the phone towards you when you open the lid.
Inside, the contents are also the same as in the bigger phone's package. Well, in principle, at least - the case is obviously different. We got two pieces of transparent hard plastic snap-on covers - one for each half of the Find. The top half has a comically large cutout for the outer display, but such is the case when you have the largest outer display on the market.
The charger and the cable to go with it are indeed the same - that means the Flip ships with a 67W adapter, even though it's only rated for 44W charging.

Got it for one week now. Flipology !!! Plaisant phone, great screen, fine battery except for charge. Use only 44w charger and upper. Oppo 33w and below chargers don't charge it well.
