Oppo reportedly follows Find N with a foldable flip phone

(Pocket-lint) – Oppo will reportedly enter the market for foldable flip phones with a new device in its Find series to take on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Huawei P50 Pocket.

Having already released its first foldable, Oppo Find N, it is said that the manufacturer is looking to offer an alternative with a mussel design.

Online tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings on Twitter) 91Mobiles told that the handset will be aimed at a more affordable price than peers.

He also revealed that it is likely to hit the shelves in the 3rd quarter later this year, so sometime between July and September.

In addition to the potential flip-style device, 91Mobiles claims that Oppo is working on another foldable phone. It could very well be Oppo Find N 2, which would make sense.

The first Find N was made available in December last year, so this second generation device is likely to follow a similar launch pattern and also come before Christmas this time.

Oppo has long developed various form factors using flexible OLED panels, including a rollable concept unit shown in July 2021. The Oppo X 2021 has a screen that extends from a standard smartphone shape, effectively expanding the handset instead of folding out.

However, this has not yet been used in a consumer release.
