This page has been translated using artificial intelligence and machine learning before being reviewed by a human editor in your native language.

(Pocket fluff) – Oppo is relatively new to the foldable phone market, only launching its first mainstream flexible smartphone in 2021, but it’s come out with a bang, delivering a pretty unique product. At the end of 2022, it introduced the Find N2, which has an elegant design and a higher level of performance than its predecessor.

It’s slowly making its way into the competitive market, but there’s no denying that it’s facing fierce competition, especially from Samsung. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is Samsung’s newest high-end foldable phone, and in many ways it’s considered a trend-setter and market leader in the book-folding phone category. So how exactly does the Oppo Find N2 2022 compare? Read on to find out.


Design and manufacture

  • Find N2: 132.2 x 140.5 x 7.4 mm (unfolded)
  • 4 layers: 155.1 x 130.1 x 6.3 mm (unfolded)
  • Find N2: 132.2 x 72.6 x 14.6 mm (folded)
  • Fold 4: 155.1 x 67.1 x 14.2-15.8 mm (folded)
  • Find N2: 233 grams – Aluminum, Gorilla Glass Victus/Vegetable skin
  • Layer 4: 263 grams – Reinforced aluminum, Gorilla Glass Victus+ – IPX8 water resistance

There’s no denying that the biggest differences and seemingly biggest similarities between the two are in design.

Both are horizontally foldable phones, with a tough glass screen on the outside and a larger flexible screen on the side. Both phones are mostly made of aluminum and glass, although the black Oppo Find N2 has a vegetable-tanned leather back.

Samsung’s phone has slightly better durability than Oppo’s, but it also has a newer version of Gorilla Glass Victus for IPX8 water resistance, while Oppo’s doesn’t have an official classification against moisture or dust.


They are very different devices to look at and hold though. The Fold 4 is much larger than the Oppo and weighs 30 grams more. This means that Find N is the most portable, easiest to pocket and fits in the palm of your hand. Its compactness and lightness definitely work in its favor.

Another design and build element that works in Oppo’s favor is the hinge and flexible display design. The phone folds completely and leaves no space near the hinge. The screen folds into the hinge to allow for this, and by doing so, you won’t get any obvious, visible creases like on a Samsung phone.

External/cover displays

  • Find N2: 5.54-inch AMOLED – 120Hz
  • Layer 4: 6.2-inch AMOLED – 120Hz
  • Find N2: 1080 x 2120 – 18:9 aspect ratio
  • 4 layers: 904 x 2316 – ratio 23.1: 9

Oppo’s approach to the outer screen or cover is very attractive. Just because it has a more standard aspect ratio. At 18:9 and with a relatively small 5.54-inch diagonal, it’s easier to use in everyday work than the Samsung.

By comparison, the Z Fold 4 is narrower and longer, with a 6.2-inch display with a 23.1:9 aspect ratio. Perfectly usable, but not so easy to hold with one hand.

Both phones have fast and smooth displays on the front, both devices can reach 120Hz and are bright, vibrant and colorful AMOLED displays.

Of the two, the Oppo is more useful for watching videos, browsing social media, and replying to messages. It feels just like using any regular smartphone screen, so if you do change it doesn’t require much adaptation.

Internal/main screens and software

  • Find N2: 7.1-inch foldable AMOLED LTPO – 120Hz
  • 4 layers: 7.6-inch foldable LTPO AMOLED – 120Hz
  • Find N2: 1792 x 1920 – 370ppi – HDR10+ – 1550 nits peak
  • Layer 4: 1812 x 2176 – 373ppi – HDR10+ – 1200 nits peak
  • Find N2: ColorOS 13 based on Android 13
  • Fold 4: A UI 5 based on Android 12L (upgradable to Android 13)

The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s extra height means its main internal foldable display is considerably taller than the Oppo’s. It offers a wider canvas with a diagonal of 7.6 inches (compared to 7.1 inches).

However, both offer similar performance. Both phones offer 120Hz adaptive refresh rates for smooth animations and both are HDR10+ certified with high peak brightness.

Samsung’s phone can hit up to 1,200 nits, while Oppo can handle 1,550 mAh outdoors in daylight.

Because of the different aspect ratios, you don’t get the same resolution in the two, but they look very similar in terms of sharpness when viewed side by side. And this is due to the fact that there are very few of them. At 373 pixels per inch, the Oppo has a few more pixels than the Samsung, which has 370 pixels per inch of screen.

Naturally, both phones run on Android. However, Oppo launches with Android 13, with its own ColorOS skin on top. Samsung launched Android 12L but is currently rolling out Android 13 to its users.

Both companies have slightly different approaches to software optimization for flexible displays, but each has some kind of “Flex” mode where key visual elements move up the screen and controls down when the phone is placed at an angle. .

Samsung’s phone also benefits from compatibility with the company’s S Pen stylus, and has software optimized to get the most out of it for annotating, drawing, handwriting and marking up images and documents.

Hardware and performance

  • Both: Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
  • Find N2: 12GB/256GB or 16GB/512GB
  • Tier 4: 12GB/256GB, 12GB/512GB or 12GB/1TB
  • Find N2: 4520mAh battery – 67W SuperVOOC wired charging
  • 4 layers: 4400mAh battery – 25W wired charging – 15W wireless charging

When it comes to day-to-day performance and speed, we suspect there will be little to separate these two phones as the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor sits at the helm of both devices.

Both phones also come with plenty of RAM, with a minimum of 12GB in both. However, the Oppo model that offers more storage comes with an additional 4GB, taking it to 16GB.

The batteries are similar, with the Oppo’s 4520mAh capacity slightly ahead of Samsung’s 4400mAh cell. Find N2 takes things up a notch when it comes to fast charging. It is equipped with 67W SuperVOOC charging and can be fully charged in about 35 minutes.

Samsung’s phone can handle up to 25W, but only if you have the right charger (not in the box). However, Samsung has another trick up its sleeve: wireless charging. It just adds a level of convenience to the procedures.


  • Find N2: 50MP main, 48MP ultra-wide, 32MP telephoto 2x zoom
  • 4 layers: 50MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, 10MP telephoto 3x zoom
  • Find N2: 4K/60fps and FHD/240fps slow-motion video
  • Layer 4: 8K/24fps, 4K/60fps and FHD/240fps in slow motion
  • Find N2: Dual 32MP punch-hole selfie cameras
  • 4 layers: 4MP under display and 10MP flip selfie camera

While their exact sensor composition and image processing are different, which will undoubtedly result in slightly different images, both phones have similar camera systems.

Both have a triple camera system on the back, with the primary camera paired with an ultra-wide zoom and a telephoto lens. Samsung has a slight advantage, as its zoom reaches 3x optical, while the Oppo has 2x optical.

Everyone has a very different approach to selfie cameras. Oppo has taken the easier route by placing a 32-megapixel selfie camera on both the front display and the internal display.

Samsung has gone high-tech and hidden the low-resolution selfie camera on its main display using the latest UDC/UPC technology. The results aren’t great, but luckily there’s a more capable 10-megapixel sensor on the front display.


  • Find the N2: Around $1,150/£945
  • Z Fold 4: From $1,499/£1,649

As of this writing, it is very difficult to compare the prices of the Oppo Find N2, as the phone is currently only available in China. Converting its 7,999 yuan price to US dollars gives us a price of around $1,150 (or £945). This will make it significantly cheaper than a Samsung phone, but most devices launched in the US, UK and Europe often get a significant price increase compared to their Chinese market prices, and the real price can’t be that low if at all. was actually launched.

Samsung’s foldable flagship is the company’s most expensive smartphone and one of the most expensive phones on the market. Excluding trade-ins, the phone alone could cost you a minimum of $1,499 in the US or £1,649 in the UK.

The result

Ultimately, there’s a lot to like about both phones, and each has its own appeal. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a mature offering that offers excellent performance, a solid camera system and a larger internal display. It’s ideal for those who want to feel like they’re using a tablet when it’s open. Samsung’s software is also slightly better optimized for the foldable display, benefiting from years of development in optimizing Samsung’s S Pen stylus.

Oppo’s main strengths are its lightness and compact size when closed, as well as the format of the front screen. It is more comfortable to use with one hand, closes almost flat and is relatively light. However, there is a catch, as it is not being launched outside of China, which will make it very difficult to get hold of.
