OPPO Find N3 launches globally with some pretty bright screens
All set to take on Samsung with this one.
Just hours ago, OPPO announced its third-generation book-style foldable smartphone, the first to finally launch outside China. It is the successor to last year’s popular OPPO Find N2, which sadly wasn’t launched outside its home country.
OPPO’s latest flagship foldable features, Qualcomm’s latest mobile chipset, 67W SuperVOOC charging, and a price tag to match. Here’s what you need to know about OPPO Find N3.
OPPO Find N3 design and display
OPPO has continued its trend of a shorter and wider book-style foldable with the Find N3. The company uses its third-generation Flexion Hinge at the core of the Find N3, certified to withstand 1 million folds.
We expect the same setup in the OnePlus Open, also launching today, which is likely to be the same device with different software.
Despite being thinner and lighter than its previous iterations, Find N3 is more durable. It’s only certified for IPX4 splash resistance, which is pretty solid for a foldable phone.
OPPO Find N3 sports a 7.82-inch 2440x2268px internal folding display with a 1-120 Hz dynamic refresh rate and a peak brightness of 2,800 nits.
Meanwhile, there’s a 6.31-inch 2484x1116px AMOLED external panel with a dynamic 10-120 Hz refresh rate, 20:9 aspect ratio, and the same peak brightness.
The screens are some of the brightest you’ll find on a mobile phone, and get resolutions to match, as rumors had suggested.
OPPO has designed the Find N3 to accommodate at least three windows on the screen at the same time – in both horizontal and vertical views. The company calls it a 15-inch virtual screen.
According to OPPO, 95% of its mainstream apps will support the expanded display, with the capability of resizing an active window in a multi-window setup.

OPPO Find N3 is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, unlike the MediaTek-powered Oppo Find N3 Flip. It is a top-tier chipset complete with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB.
A 4,805mAh battery keeps the smartphone going, paired with 67W SuperVOOC charging support. According to OPPO, it can do 0-100% in just 42 minutes.
As expected, the Find N3 features an impressive Hasselblad-branded camera setup on its back and two selfie cameras – 20MP on the inside and 32MP on the cover screen.
On the back of the smartphone, there’s a triple camera module featuring Sony’s latest 48MP (1/1.43”) LYTIA-T808 “pixel stacked” sensor with dual-layer transistor technology.
In addition, there’s a 48MP 1/2″ sensor behind a 14mm f/2.2 ultrawide lens featuring autofocus and a 64MP 1/2″ zoom camera with a 3x 70mm f/2.6 stabilized periscope lens. The camera also has hybrid zoom capability up to 6x or 145mm.
OPPO Find N3 colors, pricing, and availability
OPPO Find N3 is available in four colors and two finishes – Black and Red features a vegan leather back, while Green and Gold features a matte glass finish. Interestingly, only the Champagne Gold model features a color-matched camera island.
Find N3 comes in a single variant, sporting 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage, costing SGD 2,399, which comes to around $1,750. Pre-orders start tomorrow, October 20. It’s going to be available globally, but don’t expect US availability to be easy.
For the US market, Oppo is likely to keep the OnePlus Open as the option. It’s likely to be the exact same phone as the Find N3, though, so you should be able to get your hands on this one. Technically.
