OPPO Find N v/s Samsung Fold3: Which one is better?
OPPO had introduced the Find N foldable smartphone in China last week. It comes with a 'Flexion Hinge,' a 7.1-inch foldable display, Snapdragon 888 chipset, and costs CNY 7,699 (roughly Rs. 91,000). The device is worth comparing with its rival, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, which went official in August this year. Let's find out which one is a better model.
- OPPO Find N is the tech brand's first foldable smartphone and has already received fame in the Chinese market as it got sold out within seconds during the first online sale.
- In comparison, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has a similar design, premium hardware, and has received a good response from buyers despite its astronomical price-tag.
Both the Find N and Fold3 feature an inward folding design with a side-mounted fingerprint reader. The former has a punch-hole on the outer as well as the inner screen while the latter has it just on the cover display. Inside, the Fold3 has a full-screen look achieved by adopting an in-screen selfie camera. It also boasts IPX8 water resistance and stylus support.
OPPO Find N weighs 275 grams and sports a 5.49-inch AMOLED cover display along with a 120Hz, 7.1-inch QHD+ (1792x1920 pixels) foldable AMOLED screen. In comparison, Samsung's Fold3 tips the scales at 271 grams and has a 6.2-inch AMOLED cover display and a 120Hz, 7.6-inch QHD+ (1768x2208 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED main screen. Both the devices have Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
OPPO Find N sports a 50MP main shooter, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 13MP telephoto lens on the outside. There is a 32MP selfie snapper on the outside as well as inside. The Fold3 houses a 12MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 12MP telephoto camera. For selfies, there is a 10MP snapper on the cover and a 4MP in-display camera.
OPPO Find N and Samsung Fold3 draw power from a Snapdragon 888 chipset, paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The former packs a 4,500mAh battery with 33W wired, 15W wireless, and 10W reverse charging support. The latter houses a 4,400mAh battery with 25W wired and 11W wireless charging support. Both the devices run on Android 11.
OPPO Find N is priced at CNY 7,699 (around Rs. 91,000) and CNY 8,999 (approximately Rs. 1.07 lakh) for the 8GB/256GB and 12GB/512GB models, respectively. Meanwhile, the Fold3 costs CNY 14,999 (roughly Rs. 1.78 lakh) for the 12GB/512GB variant. The Find N gets our vote for its competitive price-tag, compact form-factor, better cameras, and a bigger battery with faster charging support.
