It seems like we’ll get some interesting new phones from OPPO in the second half of the year, including the company’s new foldables. This information comes from Digital Chat Station, a well-known Chinese tipster. He shared the information via Weibo.
OPPO is planning to launch two new foldable, plus some other exciting devices
First and foremost, let’s talk about the aforementioned foldables. The OPPO Find N2 is one of them. This handset will follow the Find N which launched last year.
The OPPO Find N was actually a really compelling phone, quite compact when folded, and a small tablet when opened. It launched towards the end of the year, so we’re not expecting the Find N2 to launch that soon. It will likely arrive in the fourth quarter of the year, likely November or December. The OPPO Find N2 is codenamed ‘White Swan’, by the way.
The other foldable is codenamed ‘Dragonfly’, and that seems to be a vertically-folding foldable smartphone. That device will compete directly with the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Huawei P50 Pocket, and the upcoming Motorola Razr foldable.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 variant of the OPPO Find X5 Pro may also be on the way
In addition to those phones, OPPO seems to be planning to launch a regular flagship fueled by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. It may even be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 variant of the OPPO Find X5 Pro.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 does bring improved performance compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and better power management. On top of that, the thermals are also better. So, it makes sense.
That’s not all, though. It seems like OPPO is also planning to announce the OPPO Watch 3 smartwatch, and the OPPO Band 2 fitness tracker. Well, that fitness tracker will likely be a hybrid between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker.
And last, but not least, ColorOS 13. This will become OPPO’s next-gen Android-based OS which will ship on the company’s phones. It will likely be included on top of Android 13 smartphones globally. In China, we may even see it shipped on phones with Android 12.
All in all, OPPO has a lot of devices planned for the remainder of the year.
