According to a new report, OPPO is planning to launch two foldable smartphones this year. This information comes from Digital Chat Station, one of the best-known Chinese tipsters. He shared the info via Weibo.

OPPO seems to be planning to launch two foldable smartphones in 2022

He claims that OPPO is planning to launch a book-like foldable, and a clamshell foldable. This is in line with rumors that surfaced earlier this year. Do note that OPPO released only one foldable thus far, the OPPO Find N.

The OPPO Find N turned out to be an excellent foldable smartphone, despite the fact it’s the first the company ever released. It’s a shame it never arrived to global markets, but it is what it is.

Having said that, this upcoming book-like foldable may be a successor to the OPPO Find N. The Find N is a rare bread, it’s a foldable smartphone that’s actually compact when folded. That kind of makes sense, compact when folded, large when unfolded. Pretty much every other book-like foldable out there is huge even when folded.

OPPO may keep the same philosophy for the second-gen model, and will hopefully release it globally this time around. The device is tipped to be called the OPPO Find N 2, and all we know up to this point is that it will include a 120Hz main display.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is expected to fuel the Find N successor

Considering that it’s coming this year, it will likely include the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. As a reminder, its predecessor came with the Snapdragon 888 chip.

The other foldable is a clamshell one, and it’s codenamed ‘Dragonfly’. A 120Hz display is expected on this smartphone, which goes for its main display, and it’s expected to compete directly with the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

We’re not sure when exactly will these phones launch, though, nor will they launch at the same time. The OPPO Find N was announced at the very end of the year, though, on December 15.
