Oppo’s tipped to launch affordable foldable smartphone soon


It’s no secret that Oppo is already hard at work on other foldable smartphones to add to its line-up, which it debuted in December with the Find N. As for the following one, it’s reported to be similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 or Huawei P50 Pocket foldables.

According to Oppo, it’s less expensive than others, which makes sense, considering its Find N was also cheaper than its rivals when it released in China. According to a report out of China, the ‘flip’ Oppo will cost about CNY 5,000, which presently converts into roughly $756 or €718. While the P50 Pocket begins at CNY 8,988 in China, the Galaxy Z Flip3 starts at CNY 7,399 ($1,119 or €1,063), putting this in perspective.

Although we’re pleased that Oppo is playing the price card when it comes to foldables, the fact that it has always priced its other devices in the other direction is a little strange to observe. Regardless, the Oppo ‘flip phone’ is expected to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC, which implies it might debut as early as this summer. We’ll let you know as soon as we can.
