We have been waiting for Oppo Find N2 Flip for a long time. This foldable flip phone was first unveiled in China in December, but the phone has finally made its way around the world, and it looks like the delay might have been worth it.
For starters, the Find N2 Flip costs just £849 in the UK and is expected to cost $1,499 in Australia when it launches in March. It’s unlikely to launch in the US, but for comparison, those prices translate to around $1,025.
It’s incredibly affordable by foldable phone standards, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 – which is one of its main rivals and also at the affordable end of the foldable phone price spectrum – starting at $999.99 / £999 / AU$1,499.
So in the only region where we’ve confirmed prices for the Oppo Find N2 Flip, it costs significantly less and that’s with 256GB of storage, while the Z Flip 4’s initial capacity is just 128GB. To get 256GB with this phone you’ll have to pay $1059.99 / £1059 / AU$1649.

If you’re tempted by the Oppo Find N2 Flip, UK buyers will be able to pre-order it from a variety of retailers and operators including EE, O2, Amazon and Argos starting today (February 15).
The phone is expected to ship on March 2 and you’ll be able to choose between Astral Black and Moonlight Purple shades. In addition, buyers will receive a free 100GB Google One trial for six months.
For Australians, the Oppo Find N2 Flip has been announced to launch from March 16, with pre-orders available from March 2.
Pretty much everything else about the Oppo Find N2 Flip has been known since its Chinese launch, but in case you missed it, highlights include the largest cover screen of any foldable flip phone, at 3.26 inches, plus a 6.8-inch foldable 1080 x 2520 AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Oppo Find N2 Flip also has a 50MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 32MP selfie camera, 4300mAh battery, 44W charging, powerful MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus chipset, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage and supports 5G.
The Oppo Find N2 Flip also seems to be built to last as it has been tested to withstand over 400,000 folds and is promised four years of major OS updates and five years of security updates.

Analysis: The main rival of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 with one big flaw
Considering how much more affordable the Oppo Find N2 Flip is than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, it could be a major competitor to Samsung’s latest foldable flip phone.
In fact, if it wasn’t from a smaller brand, it could easily be the most popular foldable phone, especially considering it has a larger cover screen than the Z Flip 4, as well as more megapixels in the main camera, and a larger battery and faster charging.
There’s one big problem though – the Oppo Find N2 Flip will almost certainly never come to the US, so it’s not much of an option in one of the biggest smartphone markets in the world. Still, for those who can buy it, it could be one of the best foldable phones around.
