Oppo Find N3 Flip and Watch 4 Pro have official renders and launch date

 

Adding to the lineup of clamshell foldable phones, Oppo is set to introduce the Oppo Find N3 Flip. The Chinese manufacturer Oppo recently revealed on Weibo that it will release the new Find N3 Flip and Watch 4 Pro on August 29 in China.

 

The main attraction of the event will undoubtedly be the Oppo Find N3 Flip. The officially released images from Oppo confirm the previously leaked designs and images that have surfaced in the past few weeks. It is official now that instead of two vertically placed cameras, the next-gen Find N3 Flip has three encapsulated within a circle.

 

For now, the rumors say that Oppo will use the same cameras that come with the Oppo Reno 10 Pro, meaning a 50MP main shooter with optical image stabilization, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 32MP telephoto. In addition, the phone is anticipated to support 67W fast charging and house a 4,300mAh battery. It's said that the device will run on Android 13.

 

While the specifications of the device have not been officially confirmed by Oppo yet, leaks and rumors suggest that the Find N3 Flip will sport a 6.8-inch LTPO AMOLED display on the interior with a 120Hz refresh rate. On the exterior, there is expected to be a 3-inch cover display.

 

The Watch 4 Pro will also be part of the August 29 event

Undoubtedly taking the spotlight is the Oppo Find N3 Flip, but the supporting role of the Watch 4 Pro should not be underestimated. Official images of the Watch 4 Pro showcase its elegantly curved surface design. The watch is encased in stainless steel, features a ceramic bottom cover, and offers a variety of band options. To be sure of the exact number of bands versions available, we will need to await the official launch.

 

Just a few days ago, Oppo shared some details about the Watch 4 Pro. It will be powered by the Snapdragon W5 Gen1 chipset and will feature 2GB of RAM. The Watch 4 Pro will also incorporate an LTPO AMOLED panel with full-color Always On Display (AOD) support. This upcoming timepiece will include an eight-channel heart rate sensor, a 16-channel blood oxygen (SpO2) sensor, a wrist temperature sensor, and an ECG sensor.

 

Both the Find N3 Flip and the Watch 4 Pro will initially debut in China. The Find N3 Flip will probably be released globally in the coming months if the company follows the strategy it had with the previous Find N2 Flip, which was released for the global markets a couple of months after its launch in China. As for the Watch 4 Pro, we're not overly optimistic about a global launch, given that the Oppo Watch 3 Pro remained exclusive to China. But hey, who knows, maybe Oppo might surprise us.


Oppo Find N3's display could be bigger than the ones in Google Pixel Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 5

 

According to the Chinese calendar, 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit. According to the mobile calendar - if there was such a thing - 2023 is the year of Foldable. New details regarding the Oppo Find N2's display size surface indicating that things are getting bigger.

 

There's a Weibo post from the reputable Digital Chat Station account that lists some compelling screen specifications - both for the inner and outer displays (via 9to5Google). Here's what the roughly translated information reads: the inner display allegedly will be 7.82-inches, with a resolution of 2268 x 2440 pixels, while the outer one is 6.31-inches and 2484 x 1116p (with a ratio of 20:9). "The PPI is the highest among folding screens", a possible "collector's edition" rounds up the technical leak. Supposedly, all the variants will come with 16GB LPDDR5X of RAM, and 1TB UFS 4.0 storage - plus, there are unconfirmed plans for a 24GB RAM version.

 

The 7.82-inches alleged display is not only bigger than the ones Oppo used in the Find N and the Find N2 (both used 7.1-inch inner displays and 5.54-inches outer screens), it tops the inner displays of the Google Pixel Fold (measuring at 7.6-inches) and the latest Galaxy Z Fold (7.6-inches on the inner and a 6.2-inches cover screen). The Find N and Find N2 were exclusive to China, so it's still unclear whether or not the third iteration will make it to the USA, but one can hope.

 

The current leaks align perfectly with rumors about the OnePlus Open, which has been expected to have the same larger display and to share near-identical hardware with the Find N3.


Oppo is formally China's biggest smartphone producer

 

China is perhaps of the most crowded country on the planet, and throughout the long term, the nation has figured out how to lift its monetary position. To such an extent that China is currently a market that many organizations are attempting to break into as it is a significant one on the off chance that an organization is attempting to develop its market.

 

That being said, as far as smartphones, it seems as though unfamiliar organizations have a ton of neighborhood rivalry to fight with, particularly with the most recent figures where it has been uncovered that Oppo is currently formally the main smartphone producer in China. The Chinese organization orders an astounding 18% generally share in China, and 10% of the worldwide market, which thus likewise makes them the fourth biggest smartphone producer on the planet.

 

As per the information from Canalys, Oppo held 31% of the China market during Q1 2023 alone. The organization's most recent foldable phone, the Oppo Find N2 Flip, was attributed as assisting the organization with accomplishing those figures, where the phone alone represented 15% of foldable smartphone deals in China.

 

This is amazing, particularly when you consider that Samsung is pretty much the pioneer and principal driver of foldable phones in the market today. Many had recently fixed Xiaomi as a possibility to assume control over the China market, however in view of these numbers, it seems as though Oppo has started to lead the pack.


OPPO to exit France as distributor ceases operation

 

2023 has been a steep slalom for OPPO in Europe. In late March there were rumors that OPPO will leave four EU states, then the company denied this. Some four months later, OPPO might be leaving France for real.

 

A report from SamMobile references an article from French outlet Frandroid: Yang Technology, the exclusive distributor of OPPO in France, announced that "it will cease its activities".

 

Earlier this year tipster Max Jambor tweeted that both OPPO and OnePlus are to withdraw from the following European countries: Netherlands, France, UK and Germany. An immediately issued statement by a OnePlus official refuted the tipster's info and noted that "OPPO and OnePlus are committed to all the existing European markets".

 

Then came May, when it was reported that the German OPPO website was still live, but had turned into a ‘ghost town' with no new posts, information or updates. That's on par with the fact that the OnePlus 11 did not launch in Germany because of a patent dispute between Nokia and OnePlus.

 

The beef between OPPO and Nokia was taken to court, where the Chinese brand actually won. A judge in the Paris Court of Justice has ruled that Nokia's patents are considered "invalid" due to a "lack of novelty". The trial at first instance has been won by OPPO, but most probably Nokia will appeal this Paris decision. Nevertheless, OPPO has decided to take a step back and apparently cut ties with France, while staying ‘on hold' in Germany.

 

It's been awfully quiet on OPPO's social media in France and their Instagram account, in particular. The brand used to share a minimum of three posts per week, but for the last 9 weeks, the sum is... zero. Social media activity is not a serious activity criterion, but it's not to be underestimated in light of recent events.

 

What does that mean for users?

This new state of affairs means that it will soon no longer be possible for people in France to buy OPPO smartphones straight from the official distributor, but instead will have to rely on resellers. However, there's a statement from OPPO that their users in France will be able to access after-sales services and receive future OS updates.


Oppo Unveils the K11 for Chinese Markets

 

Oppo has debuted its latest addition to its midrange smartphone lineup in the form of the Oppo K11, which packs some pretty good hardware specs and features. One caveat though is that the phone is currently only available in China, but nevertheless is designed to take on competing midrange smartphones.

 

Up front, the phone comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, with a 1080×2400 pixel resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Aside from the display, everything else on the phone is made from plastic, which comes in black and blue color variants.

The Oppo K11 comes in a base model with 256GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM for the base model, which is priced at around $265 when converted. There's no word yet of an international release, but we should probably hear more from Oppo soon.
