OPPO, a leading brand in APAC
2023 is a significant year for OPPO in Asia Pacific and it will also be celebrating its 10th year anniversary in Singapore, which is a great feat in today’s competitive landscape.
From its humble beginnings of the “Smiley Phone” over 10 years ago, OPPO has since raced to the forefront and is currently, one of the top-selling brands in Asia. According to Canalys, OPPO’s smartphone shipments ranked first in Asia in 2022 and has maintained its position in Southeast Asia as the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in overall shipment last year. Sentiments have also been immensely positive from OPPO users across Asia Pacific. Today, there is approximately one OPPO user for every five people in the region.
Asia Pacific has always been an important region for OPPO, where the company started overseas market from, which is why OPPO is dedicated to serving the region and the people here by going all-in on upgrading its product portfolio with compelling high-end segment products that are leading in the industry.
Innovation is in OPPO’s DNA
The key to OPPO’s success in the region is attributed to its continuous innovation and investments into R&D to provide better user experiences to consumers.
Be it innovating in the quality of early audio players and feature phones, delivering breakthroughs in SuperVOOC flash charge technology and new form factors like rotating camera and pop-up camera, or developing cutting-edge innovations such as the MariSilicon X NPU in recent years, OPPO has always been a leading figure in pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with its remarkable breakthroughs.
OPPO has always sought to elevate the technology industry and creating a better future for all through its ongoing innovation. In 2022, OPPO closed off with over 88,000 patent applications filed and more than 44,000 granted patents globally, demonstrating its strong R&D capabilities.
At MWC 2023, OPPO showcased the Air Glass 2 which is equipped with its new breakthrough in developing the world's first resin SRG-diffractive waveguide lens and a new-generation Spark image projector. OPPO also unveiled the OPPO Omni Wi-Fi Router and OPPO Zero-Power Tag which unlocks even more powerful ways to communicate and connect.
Going All-in on the Foldables
Foldables represent one of the most innovative visual changes for smartphones in the recent decade, which is set to usher in a new era for smart device experience. OPPO began its pursuit of making the best foldable in the market in 2018, putting emphasis on perfecting the craft and technology, going deep on R&D to refine the foldable experience for users.
At the end of 2021, OPPO launched its first foldable – the OPPO Find N – that saw the debut of its exclusive Flexion Hinge technology which sets the path for making the crease invisible.
Last year, OPPO launched the Find N2, which is also the world’s lightest horizontally folding phone. Both were extremely well received in the markets and OPPO's foldable sales in China skyrocketed by 453% in 2022 compared to the year before. The OPPO Find N2 foldable series also made a successful debut in the Chinese market at the end of 2022, achieving a significant year-over-year growth of 483% and ranked first with 30% market share in January 2023.
Outside China, the OPPO Find N2 Flip will be the first flip foldable from OPPO and it is also the very first foldable available in the global markets. OPPO’s Find series has always been the cream of the crop when it comes to flagship performance and design.
With the new Find N2 Flip, OPPO is once again delivering breakthroughs in technological innovation in the high-end user market – a key trait that OPPO will maintain as it continues to break new ground in technology and products that are the best for users.
A closer look at the OPPO Find N2 Flip
A product of industry-leading engineering and innovation with intuitive design principles – the OPPO Find N2 Flip challenges what consumers have come to expect from small form-factor foldables.
Much of what makes the Find N2 Flip incredible, is OPPO’s New Generation Flexion Hinge, which works in harmony with the main display to create a robust, folding screen with an incredibly subtle crease. The New Generation Flexion Hinge is also more compact than ever, creating more space for a larger cover screen and a 4,300mAh higher-capacity, faster-charging battery.
Moreover, measuring 3.26 inches, the Find N2 Flip's cover screen is the largest of any flip phone currently available. With it, world-class selfies and flagship photography experiences are made possible.
Under the hood it delivers flagship experiences empowered by world-class hardware, a flagship camera system with a Sony IMX890 sensor, MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ power, ultra-fast dual-SIM 5G connectivity, and best-in-class charging speeds.
Just as with the Find N and Find N2, there is no hinge gap when the Find N2 Flip is closed, so it keeps dust out, and OPPO has appointed TÜV Rhineland to test its durability. The phone is certified to withstand over 400,000 folds and unfolds, which is equivalent to around 100 times a day for more than ten years.
Robust enough to last over a decade of folding, the OPPO Find N2 Flip is set to mark a new benchmark for flip phones with its revolutionary vertical cover screen that is the largest of its kind, a long-lasting, fast-charging battery, and a host of flagship experiences.
