Oppo is a newcomer to the market of folding phones, having only released its first consumer flexible smartphone in 2021. Nevertheless, it arrived with a bang, releasing a device that was incredibly distinctive. The Find N2, which was released in the tail end of 2022, brought an improved design and improved performance over its predecessor.
There’s no disputing that it faces tough competition, particularly from Samsung, as it enters a market that is gradually getting more competitive. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is Samsung’s most recent premium folding phone and is widely regarded as setting trends and dominating the market for phones that fold like books. How does the Oppo Find N2 from 2022 differ specifically from Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4? Find out by reading on.

The OPPO Find N2 is the best option in this category if we are talking about the design and dimensions. It is the most compact and lightweight horizontal foldable phone currently available. It is almost as light as a typical smartphone at 233 grams. Additionally, it is available in a unique color variation with a leather back. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 is still quite interesting because it has the IPX8 certification and is a waterproof phone. Even when unfolded, it is slimmer, but it weighs more than 260 grams, making it much heavier.
Given that they both have AMOLED panels with 2K resolutions, 120 Hz refresh rates, and HDR10+ certification, these two phones’ displays offer comparable image quality. The size is key here; the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 has a 7.6-inch internal display and a 6.2-inch external one, compared to the OPPO Find N2’s 7.1-inch internal and 5.54-inch external display. Be aware that the Samsung foldable’s external display is actually inferior to the one on the OPPO one. The Galaxy Z Fold4 is the only phone, however, to support a stylus: the S Pen. Do you want a foldable phone like this to have larger displays or a more compact design?
Specs & Software
These two devices’ hardware components are pretty near to one another. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU that powers both phones suggest that there won’t be anything to differentiate them in terms of speed and real-world performance.
The RAM on the two phones is also very substantial, with a minimum of 12GB on each. Oppo’s greater storage option, however, includes an extra 4GB, bringing the total to 16GB.
Batteries are comparable as well, with the Oppo’s 4520mAh marginally outperforming the Samsung’s 4400mAh cell. When it comes to fast charging, the Find N2 does step things up a notch. It has a 67W SuperVOOC charging system and can be fully recharged in around 35 minutes.
The Samsung phone can handle speeds of up to 25W, but only if you have the proper charger (which isn’t included in the package). However, Samsung does have a secret weapon in its sleeve: wireless charging. It merely makes the process more convenient.
The OPPO Find N2 is the best choice if you want a longer battery life because it has a 4520 mAh battery and smaller, less power-hungry displays. Thanks to 67W fast charging, this phone will also charge more quickly. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 enables wireless charging, on the other hand.
The OPPO Find N2’s camera hardware appears to be more reliable than that of its competitor. It has a 50 MP main camera with OIS on the back, a 32 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 48 MP ultrawide camera. The main camera is a Sony IMX890 sensor. A 50 MP main camera with OIS is included in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, but the other sensors—a 10 MP telephoto lens and a 12 MP ultrawide lens—are inferior. Consequently, the Find N2 should offer greater camera performance.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has a starting price of approximately $1378/€1300, though this varies by market. With prices starting at $1166/€1100, the OPPO Find N2 is only offered in the Chinese market.
