The first foldable foldable phone from Oppo may arrive sooner than you think

Apart from the flip phone, the Chinese tech brand is also internally testing a new foldable phone, possibly the Oppo Find N 5G successor. Internal testing is happening in some regions of Europe and Eurasia. It’s also slated to release later this year, though there is not enough clarity on whether it will launch alongside the alleged flip phone.

Oppo was said to be working on a clamshell foldable phone to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip series earlier this month. We had no idea, though, that Oppo had made substantial progress. Oppo has began internal testing of its first-ever clamshell flip phone in several Eurasian and European locations, according to famed leaker Mukul Sharma, with the official launch expected later this year.

Highlights

  • About the pricing: Oppo’s clamshell foldable device may have a price tag of CNY 5,000, which roughly translates to $756 or €718. In China, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 is priced at CNY 7,399 (~$1,119 or €1,063). A cheaper price tag may not even come at the expense of lackluster hardware. Although we don’t have all the details about what’s inside it, rumor has it that the latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip will power the device.

  • However, internal testing of a product doesn’t guarantee its official release is near. If the company is not happy with the testing, it might delay the product to fix the persisting issues. This has happened to Google’s alleged “Pixel Fold” foldable device. Likewise, it can happen to Oppo’s upcoming clamshell foldable phone too. Whatever the case may be, the company’s flip phone may seem more attractive than Galaxy Z Flip3 as the former may be priced significantly lower than the latter.
