Cover Story: The Philosophy Of The OPPO Find N3 Flip’s Outer Screen

When OPPO launched the Find N2 Flip, it had the largest cover screen of any flip phone in the market. With an impressive 3.26-inch large display, it brought a revolutionary upgrade to the experience of the Flip phone.

After the Find N2 Flip, OPPO saw the entire industry following their lead in this direction, with the size of cover screens on flip phones getting larger and larger.

With the announcement of the OPPO Find N3 Flip, OPPO once again sets the standard in the user’s overall experience by introducing enhancements in its latest flip smartphone. 

Vertical is Better

OPPO had a choice when making the OPPO Find N3 Flip: follow the trend and try and make the biggest cover screen once again, or think differently.

They went back and took a serious look at what kind of cover screen provides the best user experience.

Considering the daily scenarios users encounter and OPPO’s in-depth understanding of its global users, they still believe that “Vertical is Better.”

Selfies with Vertically No Crop

When you use the cover screen to take selfies, you can see the full preview. 

It’s so familiar – the same orientation as your smartphone screen. It’s also the same orientation as the phone’s camera sensor. This means it captures photos with virtually no crop. What you literally see is what you get.

Compared to other products, although they can display more now by increasing the size of the cover screen, it is still evident that whether it’s people or the background, the vertical cover screen of the OPPO Find N3 Flip can provide a better preview of more content, helping users compose their shots more effectively and confidently.

Bigger is Better

Most Android apps are designed to work on a vertical screen. Therefore, the vertical cover screen of the OPPO Find N3 Flip gives a more natural and intuitive experience.  The bigger screen can also display more information.

Compared to other products, the OPPO Find N3 Flip can provide previews of more text messages and emails (e.g.Gmail) and showing more of the conversation details (e.g. WhatsApp).

It can also display more complete social media posts (X/Twitter). Other products can only show a portion of the text. The OPPO Find N3 Flip allows users to see both text and the entire four accompanying images.

These differences are not solely determined by screen size but are the most noticeable efficiency disparities users experience in their daily lives.

The Next-Level Cover Screen Experience

Over the past few months, OPPO has been working with its partners like Google to fine-tune the experience for each app to make sure all the supporting apps scale as well as possible on the cover screen. 

Out of the box, the OPPO Find N3 Flip will support dozens of the most popular apps on the cover screen. This includes Google apps like Phone, Maps, Keep, and Gmail, as well as other popular apps social media, short video, music streaming and food delivery apps, and car-hailing services, maps, online payment solutions and more.

Answer the phone with Google Dial, play a fun GameSnacks game, hail a taxi with Grab, navigate with Google Maps, check your social media – swiping through posts and videos, or even reply to messages in Telegram with a Google keyboard, and you can do all of that without having to open up the phone.

More apps will be added on OPPO Find N3 Flip’s powerful cover screen through future software updates.

With the new app support, OPPO believes users will experience the next-level cover screen experience on the OPPO Find N3 Flip.
