OPPO newly teased its first foldable smartphone and the OPPO Find N. The device will be fully disclosed tomorrow at the OPPO Inno Day 2021 event. However, most parts of the forthcoming device have been revealed already, including the display’s specifications and manufacturer. Can you guess who made the OPPO Find N’s foldable display?
Well, it’s none other than Samsung Display. A report from TheElec states that the foldable display on the OPPO Find N is made by Samsung’s display manufacturing arm. The smartphone has a 7.1-inch internal display with an LTPO OLED panel and a 120Hz variable refresh rate. Moreover, the display is protected using Samsung’s UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass) protection layer for scratch and drop resistance.
The OPPO Find N is the first foldable smartphone from Chinese brands to use UTG. Other devices, including the Huawei Mate X2 and the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold, use polyimide film instead of glass. It is being reported that Xiaomi will switch to Samsung Display’s 8.01-inch foldable panel and UTG for the Mi MIX Fold 2’s internal screen. For the external display, it could use BOE’s 6.52-inch screen.
