According to OPPO engineers: they wanted an outside screen that didn’t feel too cramped and an inside screen that’s ideal for videos and games. The display features a 120Hz LTPO panel that can refresh between 1Hz to 120Hz. Like the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the display is covered by Ultra-thin glass (UTG).

OPPO adopted the “waterdrop” hinge technology used by Huawei and Motorola for their foldables. This makes the screen less creasy compared to Samsung foldables. The hinge also folds completely flat with no gap, and OPPO says it’s been tested to withstand over 200,000 folds.

The starting price of the OPPO Find N is $1,200 and this makes it cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Xiaomi’s Mix Fold with starting price of $1,799 and $1,500 respectively.
