OPPO Find N2 Flip Flexion Hinge, Explained : A Groundbreaking Innovation

OPPO, a renowned global brand of smart devices, has recently introduced its very first flip phone, the OPPO Find N2 Flip. With cutting-edge technology designed to enhance the flip phone experience, this latest innovation sets a new benchmark for excellence in the market.

What sets the OPPO Find N2 Flip apart from the competition is its revolutionary Flexion Hinge, which represents a breakthrough in flip phone technology.

The OPPO Find N2 Flip boasts a unique tear-drop shaped hinge that redefines the standards of flip phone design. This innovative hinge serves as the foundation for a sleek and powerful device, featuring a spacious cover screen and long-lasting battery life.

Improved Flexion Hinge

OPPO’s dedication to advancing the smartphone industry is evident in the thoughtful engineering behind the Flexion Hinge. This groundbreaking technology was first introduced in the Find N series, OPPO’s inaugural foldable phone, and has since become a signature feature of the brand’s premium flip phones. 

The OPPO Find N2 Flip takes this innovation to the next level with a miniaturized hinge that maximizes the phone’s portability and usability without sacrificing essential features. Meticulously tested and refined, the Flexion Hinge represents the pinnacle of OPPO’s pursuit of quality and excellence.

The improved hinge of the Find N2 Flip offers enhanced functionality, featuring a new cam system and 1/4 spindle assembly that allows the phone to remain partially folded at any angle between 45° and 110°. With FlexForm Mode, users can hold the phone in any position for an optimal viewing experience, whether it's for binge-watching, video calls, or capturing stunning photos and videos that rival those taken with a built-in tripod.

The hinge material selection has also been refined, with the Find N2 Flip utilizing a flexible stainless steel element that is precisely etched and injected with a soft, pliable material. Additionally, aeronautical high-strength steel at the key bearing position ensures the hinge's reliability, with a tensile strength increase of up to 15% and a yield strength increase of up to 25%. Meanwhile, aircraft-grade carbon-fiber reinforced polymer guarantees that the hinge is both strong and lightweight.

This meticulous design provides the perfect balance of flexibility and firmness, whether folding the phone or typing on the display. Furthermore, the hinge guides the screen into a specific waterdrop fold when the Find N2 Flip is closed, significantly reducing the crease compared to its competitors. The waterdrop shape has a larger bending radius than the conventional U-shaped hinge, resulting in a lighter crease and reduced screen deformation.

Stellar Features

The OPPO Find N2 Flip features a spacious cover screen on the front of the phone, made possible by the miniaturized hinge. This compact hinge design also allows for a high-capacity, fast-charging battery and contributes to the phone's overall durability, enabling unique, partially folded experiences.

With the largest cover screen of any flip phone on the market, the Find N2 Flip sets a new standard for clamshell foldable phones. The 3.26" cover screen occupies almost half of the top half of the phone, providing ample space to display content. Coupled with OPPO's thoughtful design, the cover screen becomes an easy-to-view, primary point of interaction where users can quickly check their phone and get a snapshot of their digital life at a glance.

From checking the weather to responding to notifications and messages, the cover screen allows users to stay connected while also striking a better digital health balance. With its intuitive design, the OPPO Find N2 Flip makes it effortless to manage your digital life and stay connected on the go.

The OPPO Find N2 Flip doesn't just offer a powerful cover screen, but also introduces new interactive pet wallpapers that add an element of playfulness to your daily routine.

For those who enjoy taking selfies, the cover screen, together with the Flexion Hinge, allows you to preview while shooting video and capture clearer selfies with the main camera, which is the best camera on your phone. The phone's photography features also include Dual Preview, allowing subjects to see themselves on the cover screen, and FlexForm Mode for time-lapses, video calls, and long-exposure photography.

In addition to its great camera features, the Find N2 Flip also boasts a powerful battery with a capacity of 4300mAh, much larger than other flip phones, and comes with a 44W SUPERVOOC flash charging capability for an all-day user experience.

The miniaturized hinge on the Find N2 Flip doesn't compromise its durability, as it has been tested to withstand 400,000 folds by TÜV Rheinland, equivalent to around 10 years of normal usage. Additionally, it has been put through extreme temperatures and still worked perfectly after being folded and unfolded 100,000 times at both -20ºC and 50ºC.

But it's not just the folding mechanism that sets the Find N2 Flip apart. When the phone is shut, the New Generation Flexion Hinge has no hinge gap, preventing dust and particles from collecting along the crease line. This ensures that every time you open the phone, the screen looks as fresh as when you left it.

Finally, when the phone is open, it feels and looks like a familiar, traditional smartphone with no compromises. The Flexion Hinge and unique Reticular Matrix Plate supporting the screen result in the shallowest crease of any folding phone, making it virtually invisible in most environments. This allows you to fully focus on the large, high-quality display without any distractions while watching, gaming, browsing, or scrolling.
