It’s a leaker well known by the name of Digital Chat Station which revealed some additional details, after having already lifted the veil on a good part of the technical sheet of the famous smartphone a few weeks ago.

It is now a virtual certainty, the future foldable smartphone ofOppo will adopt the same format as the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The one who could well be called ” Oppo Find N 5G Would therefore take the form of a classic smartphone that would unfold to become an almost square tablet, like a book.

New details for the screen and photo sensors

We already knew that the unfolded screen would be between 7.8 and 8 inches and would display a good refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. We learned, however, that it would be an LTPO type AMOLED screen and that the camera would be located in the upper left corner.

As for the front screen, used when the device is folded, it would manage to stand out from the competition thanks to a design detail that is important: curved edges, a first on a foldable smartphone. The punch of the front camera would be central and its refresh rate will be established at 60 Hz.

As revealed last month by Digital Chat Station, the foldable Oppo would run well with a Snapdragon 888, Qualcomm’s high-end processor. Unsurprisingly, it should use ColorOS 12, Oppo’s in-house interface based on Android 11. A fingerprint sensor would be placed on one of the side edges and the device should enjoy a fast charge at 65 W.
