Oppo Find N3 Flip: Fixing Flip Phone Sunglasses Issue

Foldable flip phones offer numerous advantages but come with their fair share of challenges. Among these, the issue of using flip phones while wearing sunglasses has been a persistent problem. Oppo’s Find N3 Flip, which originally launched in China a couple of months ago, is now making its way to the global market, addressing this particular concern. Although it won’t be available in the US, and pricing details for most regions are still pending, we can delve into what this device has to offer.

The Oppo Find N3 Flip appears to have effectively tackled the enduring issue of using flip phones while wearing sunglasses, a problem that has plagued devices such as the Motorola Razr+ and Galaxy Z Flip 5. When attempting to use these phones with polarized sunglasses, the foldable display often becomes nearly unreadable, resulting in a frustrating user experience. Traditional form factors had resolved this issue long ago, and Samsung and other manufacturers had already addressed it in book-style foldables.

Oppo has taken a page from Samsung’s book in solving this problem by reworking the display assembly. Specifically, they have removed the polarizer, which is the root cause of the issue. This change not only enhances the visibility of the display but also improves power efficiency, a welcome improvement for users.

We can only hope that Samsung and Motorola will adopt similar solutions in their next-generation flip phones.

In addition to fixing the sunglasses problem, the Oppo Find N3 Flip brings other enhancements. It features upgraded camera hardware, an updated MediaTek chip, and the ability to run some full apps on the outer display. Keep an eye out for a comprehensive review of the Find N3 Flip in the months to come.
