An image has recently surfaced showing what the OPPO Find N3 Flip could look like, giving us a first look at what the upcoming smartphone will look like.
The following information comes from 91mobiles who claim that the image is based on an Initial Technical Verification (EVT) prototype. The end product may look very different. Therefore, take anything that has leaked with caution. However, OPPO apparently didn't want to change the design of the Find N2 Flip too much since the upcoming device is mostly similar to the previous model. The smartphone is said to have the "same sophisticated design and the same large external display" as before. The most noticeable change this time is the appearance of a third camera lens.
According to 91mobiles, the OPPO Find N3 Flip will feature the same camera system as the Chinese flagship OPPO Ren 10 Pro, albeit significantly different. At the top of the package is a 50-megapixel, f/1.8 aperture Sony IMX890 lens with OIS, or optical image stabilization. This allows the camera to move with the N3 Flip to ensure steady shots. The unique 32 megapixel telephoto lens of the N3 Flip allows you to take perfect close-ups. Third, there's the 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, first seen on the N2 Flip.
As for the rest of the leak, the report states that the OPPO Find N3 Flip will have "specs similar to the Find N2 Flip".
The main screen remains a 6.8-inch Full HD Plus screen (1920 x 1280 pixel resolution) with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smaller front display is likely to remain a 17:9, 26-inch, 3-panel AMOLED stay on the screen. Under the hood, 91mobiles claims a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. And the battery with a capacity of 4300 mAh is said to support fast wired charging with a power of 44 W.
Aside from those goodies, there's not much else in the race. 91mobiles anticipates that the OPPO Find N3 Flip will be launched in early December priced at Rs 75,490. In comparison, you can buy the Find N2 Flip from Amazon for £670, so it looks like this model will be more expensive.
OPPO does not operate in the US, so the Find N3 Flip is unlikely to make it there. If you're looking for something with a wider international reach, be sure to check out TechRadar's list of the best foldable phones of 2023.
