Oppo's Find N3 series hits the global market


Usually when Chinese smartphone manufacturers announce a new phone, it tends to be made available in China first before it launches globally (if at all). This was the case with the Oppo Find N3 series that was launched back in August, but if you're not in China but like what you see, the global availability of both phones has since been announced.


During an event held in Singapore, Oppo announced the global availability of both the Find N3 and Find N3 Flip. The company says that pre-orders will kick off tomorrow on the 20th of October with prices starting at SGD1,499 (~$950) for the Find N3 Flip with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and SGD2,399 (~$1,750) for the Find N3 with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

In case you're learning about either phone for the first time, the Oppo Find N3 Flip will feature a 3.26-inch external AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate, while its inner foldable display comes in at 6.8-inches with a 120Hz refresh rate. It uses Oppo's Flexion hinge design and under the hood, a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chipset can be found, alongside a 4,300mAh battery.


The phone is also the first foldable flip phone with a triple camera setup which consists of a 50MP main shooter, a 48MP ultrawide, and a 32MP optical zoom, with a 32MP camera on the inside for the selfie cam.

As for the Find N3, it packs a 6.3-inch display on the outside while its inner foldable display opens up to 7.8-inches, making it a pretty sizable device if you want a more tablet-like experience. The inner display also has a 120Hz refresh rate and it will also rely on Oppo's Flexion hinge technology.


Unlike the Find N3 Flip, the Find N3 will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and comes with a 4,800mAh battery. For its cameras, the Find N3 will feature a Hasselblad-branded triple camera setup with a 48MP two-layer stacked CMOS sensor, a 48MP ultrawide, and a 64MP telephoto, with a 20MP selfie cam for the outer display, and a 32MP selfie cam for the inner display.

The Oppo A2x could be the ultimate budget smartphone


The prices of smartphones have gone through the roof in recent years, where buying a flagship phone for $1,000 is starting to become the (disturbing) norm. Luckily, if you're in the market for a cheap smartphone, Oppo has you covered with their latest handset, the Oppo A2x.


There's honestly not much to say about the Oppo A2x. The phone comes with a 6.56-inch LCD panel with a HD+ resolution, but on the upside it does boast a 90Hz refresh rate, making it better than more expensive models that still pack a 60Hz refresh rate as its default. It also has a peak brightness of 720 nits.

Under the hood, a MediaTek Dimensity 6020 chipset can be found where it will be offered with either 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, along with 128GB or 256GB of storage. There is a microSD card for storage expansion, a bit of a rarity these days, so it's nice to see that Oppo hasn't ditched it completely yet.


As for the cameras, the Oppo A2x comes with a single 13MP camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and an LED flash, while the front-facing camera is of the 5MP variety. Once again, nothing to write home about. There is a 5,000mAh battery, support for fingerprint scanning, and there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack.


In terms of pricing, the base Oppo A2x will be priced at CNY1,099 which is roughly $150 after conversion, or CNY1,399 (~$190) for the model that comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There's no word on international availability, so don't get your hopes up just yet unless you get it from gray market imports.

Oppo's rumored battery replacement initiative is something all phone makers should adopt


Generally speaking, a lot of phones these days are smart enough where it will not overcharge when plugged into a charger. This is important because lithium ion batteries have a set number of cycles before it starts to lose its charge.


This means that the longer you use your phone, eventually it will reach the point where your phone's battery life is nowhere as good as it was the day you bought it. It's the natural progression of things, but the good news is that if you plan on buying an Oppo phone, Oppo could replace your battery for free.


This is according to a post by Digital Chat Station on Weibo who claims that Oppo is planning on launching a free battery replacement program starting with the upcoming Oppo A2 Pro 5G.


Keep in mind that this is not the same as Apple's battery replacement program in the past, where due to the company not being transparent about the throttling they implemented when battery capacity hits 80%, the company offered cheaper battery replacements for affected customers.


Instead, this is said to be an initiative undertaken by Oppo where if your battery capacity drops below 80% during a four year period, they will offer a battery replacement for free. We're not totally clear on the details yet as the program has yet to be launched, but if this is true, it's a pretty awesome move on Oppo's part.
