OPPO Unveils Find N3: OPPO’s latest foldable smartphone, the Find N3, is poised to make its way into the Australian market in a matter of weeks after a global launch in Singapore. With taller displays, three pro-grade cameras, and a rapid charging battery that claims to fully charge in just 42 minutes, OPPO aims to “reshape the smartphone landscape in Australia,” according to OPPO Australia’s managing director, Michael Tran.
The Find N3 boasts displays that are taller than its predecessors, featuring a 6.3-inch cover screen and a 7.8-inch main screen, promising to be among the clearest and brightest foldable screens available. These new-sized screens introduce features like split screen, floating window, global taskbar, and a boundless view, creating what OPPO’s Head of the Find Product Line, Peter Lee, describes as a “15-inch virtual screen in your hands.”
Despite its impressive screen size, the Find N3 maintains an ultra-thin profile at 5.8mm when open and 11.7mm when closed, weighing only 239g, which sets it apart as thinner and lighter than its competitors. OPPO has also emphasized durability, subjecting the device to rigorous testing, including one million folds, and earning an IPX4 splash resistance rating, thanks to a self-healing layer designed to minimize scuffs.
The Find N3 introduces “major breakthroughs” in software and camera technology. Foldable phones were often criticized for weaker image quality, especially in low light and zoom scenarios. To address this, the Find N3 features three pro-grade cameras, a 48MP wide-angle camera, a 64MP periscope telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera. Additionally, it incorporates a 20MP inner screen camera supporting 4K video recording and debuts Sony’s 48MP LYTIA-T808 two-layer stacked CMOS image sensor in foldable phones, providing a significant leap in camera quality for the foldable market.
The device is also equipped with a 4800mAh battery that promises all-day power and 67W SUPERVOOC™ fast charging, enabling a rapid 80% charge in just 30 minutes or a full 100% charge in 42 minutes. Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, 512GB of storage, 16GB of RAM, and 120Hz refresh rates on both displays.
The OPPO Find N3 in Classic Black is expected to be available in Australia from mid-November with a recommended retail price of $2699, offering a premium alternative to competitors in the foldable smartphone market.
Stay tuned for the specific launch date and retailer announcements in the coming weeks.
