The N3 Flip has some new and exciting features added like the triple camera setup on the back and an alert slider. The hinge is also improved and the overall aesthetics of the phone is beautiful.

Design and display
The OPPO Find N3 Flip has a similar design to its predecessor the OPPO Find N2 Flip. The major difference we can see is the triple-camera setup instead of a dual camera setup in the Find N2 Flip. The back is made up of plastic and the frame is made up of aluminium. The hinge is now more durable and sturdy with the new material called “Seiko Pseudo-cone Hinge”. This material is made of a special alloy that is strong and durable, yet flexible enough to allow the phone to fold and unfold smoothly.
The hinge can withstand up to 600,000 folds and also be folded at the lowest of -20°C and highest of 50°C temperature. It also has an alert slider which is a great feature and allows users to keep the phone on vibrate, silent and ring.
The OPPO Find N3 Flip has a dual-screen setup. The inner main screen is a 6.80-inch vibrant AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,520 x 1,080 pixels, offering a 403 PPI. It is capable of reaching 1,600 nits peak brightness and supports a wide colour gamut of 1.07 billion colours. It features an adaptive refresh rate ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz, with a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz. The inner screen is protected by Schott UTG Glass.
On the outer side, you have a convenient 3.26-inch AMOLED cover display with a resolution of 720 x 382 pixels and a brightness of 900 nits. It also supports a wide colour gamut and has a touch sampling rate of up to 120Hz, all while being safeguarded by Corning’s 7th generation Gorilla Glass. The outer screen is also advanced and almost all the apps can be used making it handy at times.
