Weekly poll: who is getting the new Oppo Find N3 Flip

Competition heats up in the flip foldable market – Earlier this week Oppo launched the Find N3 Flip in the Indian market which will go on sale from October 22 (Sunday next week). The phone will be priced at ₹95,000, though pre-orders include a ₹12,000 cashback (bringing the price down to ₹83,000) and a ₹8,000 bonus for trading in old devices.

There is already some competition in the Indian market, let’s take a look. We have to start with the world’s most popular foldable, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5. Samsung is asking ₹86,000 for an 8/256GB unit. The Find N3 Flip has a better main display with a 6.8″ LTPO 120Hz panel (FHD+ resolution) compared to Samsung’s 6.7″ 120Hz panel (also FHD+). Cover display sizes are similar (3.26” for Oppo, 3.4” for Samsung). The Find N3 has opted for the bespoke Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Samsung Galaxy, powered by the Dimensity 9200 to power its phone.

Oppo definitely has the upper hand in the camera department with a 50MP main (with a larger sensor), 48MP ultrawide and even a 32MP telecamera (47mm lens). Samsung has only two 12MP modules (wide + ultrawide). The Find N3 Flip is thicker (16.5mm closed vs 15.1mm) and a little heavier but compensates with a larger 4,300mAh battery with 44W wired charging (3,700mAh with 25W wired and 15W wireless charging).

This is followed by Moto Razr 40 (₹50,000) and Moto Razr 40 Ultra (₹90,000) with Motorola. The Ultra model has a 6.9″ 165Hz LTPO main display and a 3.6″ cover display (144Hz). It is powered by the older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and a 3,800mAh battery with 30W wired and 5W wireless charging. Oppo has once again scored an easy win with its cameras – the Razr 40 Ultra has a smaller sensor with a 12MP main and 13MP ultrawide.

The vanilla Moto Razr 40 Ultra and Oppo Find N3 are less capable than the Flip, but some might not want to spend a fortune on a Flip foldable so it’s worth a look.

Another cheap – well, cheap – foldable is the Tecno Phantom V Flip. Although they’re cheaper, the V Flip and Razr 40 both have LTPO internal displays (120Hz refresh rate for the Phantom), though their cover displays are too small for full apps. Their chipsets are also weak – a Dimensity 8050 for the Phantom and a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 for the Motorola. The V Flip has a 4,000mAh battery with 40W wired-only charging.
