The upcoming Oppo Find N3 Flip phone might pioneer the inclusion of a telephoto lens.

The Oppo Find N3 Flip has been unveiled through recently leaked renders, revealing a design that represents a refinement compared to Oppo’s previous foldable offering. These fresh renders also hint at an upgraded camera system for the Oppo Find N3.

These details emerged from sources such as leaker Yogesh Brar and Digital Chat Station on Weibo, though the initial reports have since been removed (as reported by Android Authority). These leaks provide a glimpse into the design of the Oppo Find N3 Flip, which prominently features a triple rear camera setup bearing the prestigious Hasselblad branding. It’s worth noting that Oppo has collaborated with Hasselblad on its premium smartphones, including the Oppo Find X5 Pro and Oppo Find X6 Pro.

Rumors suggest that the Oppo Find N3 Flip will feature a 6.8-inch LTPO internal display with an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. Additionally, reports indicate the presence of a 3-inch external display, reminiscent of existing flip-style foldable phones. In the camera department, the alleged specifications include a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 32MP telephoto lens for the rear setup. The device is also expected to retain the same 32MP front-facing selfie camera found on its predecessor.

Exceptionally distinctive in a positive manner

If these renders prove to be precise, the Oppo Find N3 Flip could potentially become the inaugural clamshell-style foldable to deliver photography capabilities on par with conventional smartphones.

Certainly, cameras are present in other foldable devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Pixel Fold, but these belong to the book-style foldable category, offering a larger surface area and more room for components. In contrast, clamshell designs like the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Motorola Razr Plus typically stick with a dual rear camera configuration.

Oppo’s Find N2 Flip has already caught our attention due to its exceptional camera performance, as demonstrated in TechRadar’s Oppo Find N2 Flip review. It showcased how Oppo’s software expertise and dedicated processing power resulted in a camera system that came remarkably close to matching its non-foldable counterparts.

If the Oppo Find N3 Flip does indeed come equipped with a telephoto lens, it could represent the first foldable device tailored for camera enthusiasts. For those who have no qualms about using Oppo’s ColorOS operating system, and for many, this isn’t an issue at all, this device’s launch might be something to look forward to.
