As the inner display is shown, it’s almost impossible to determine if there’s a punch hole or under-display camera but there seems to be one on the top left corner. If you watch the opening of the display closely, you can spot what looks like a camera on the corner. Though one can see curved sides with a chrome finish and a massive camera bump, housing at least three camera sensors can be spotted on the rear panel. Pete Lau, OnePlus’ CEO who is also overseeing brand synergy between Oppo, Oneplus and Realme, has mentioned that the company has ironed out issues that plague most foldable phones including a crease and durability.
Our first encounter with Oppo’s foldable device came in the form of a concept device back in 2019. The company also showed off two concept phones last year, one with a rollable display and the other with a trifold display. These phones, unfortunately, were never commercially available. However, given the smartphone – dubbed Oppo Find N – has been teased by the company and will be unveiled during Oppo’s Inno Day 2021, we can now claim with certainty that it is in the works. The #OPPOFindN is a beautifully designed smartphone. Repeat the process of holding, folding, and enjoying. The date is set for December 15th. pic.twitter.com/LVZKNgYiAv #OPPOINNODAY2021 The date is December 9, 2021. The teaser depicts a foldable phone with a gigantic inward folding primary display and a large near-bezel-less exterior display.
While watching the teaser, you can notice a slight reflection on the left corner which could possibly indicate the position of the selfie camera (Image credit: Oppo). Oppo Pad live images and specifications tipped online. Meanwhile, a report on GizChina quotes tipsters to suggest that the device, bearing model number PEUM00 was spotted on Geekbench. The same model had bagged the MIIT certification some time back. The tipster shared a screengrab of the latter’s website via his Weibo account earlier in December. The Geekbench listing provides additional information around the device, which has since been reportedly arriving with the name Vivo Find N. Of course, the teaser carries the name with the tipster also suggesting that it could find its way to the company’s annual conference scheduled for next week.
The listing on Camera FV-5 website indicates a 12.6MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture, EIS support, OIS, and a resolution of 4096×3072 pixels. This effectively means that the Oppo Find N could capture 50MP images using pixel binning. On the front, the device could house an 8.1MP camera. There were reports that the device would sport an 8-inch OLED display (the size appears consistent in the teaser) with a 120Hz refresh rate. It was expected to draw its power from a 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging options.
The listing suggests that the Oppo Find N could have the Snapdragon 888 chipset under its hood, which corroborates some of the earlier rumors around the device. We also get indications that the handset ships with 12GB RAM and could be running the Android 11 out-of-the-box. The data around benchmarks indicate that the new device scored 925 points in the single-core test and 3,364 points in multi-core test. The device is also expected to feature a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display. There were rumors of Sony’s IMX766 50MP camera being the choice for the primary shooter, though we haven’t heard anything concrete about the number of cameras on the back panel yet.
