Gadgetren – Along with the times, many technology companies in the world have created and launched mobile phones with flexible screens.
A mobile phone with a foldable screen makes it a hybrid as it can be a mobile phone and a tablet at the same time to make its dimensions more compact.
This also makes the user practical to use it as needed. Currently, foldable phones usually allow it to be in mobile phone mode for short needs and at the same time it can change to tablet mode by stretching the screen to get a wider viewing area.
Following this trend, OPPO also introduced its first hybrid device called Find N in 2021, which used a foldable screen on the inside and a secondary screen on the outside (cover).
To be able to provide a flexible display that can be folded and unfolded, OPPO incorporated a hinge named Flexion Hinge joining 136 parts with a precision of up to 0.01mm. OPPO claims that the Flexion Hinge can move smoothly like the movement of joints in the human body.
The Flexion hinge features a design that forms a drop of water when the screen is folded, thus widening the screen’s folding angle to create a curved screen that is up to 80% less visible compared to other devices (as assessed by TUV Rheinland).
You could say that the Flexion hinge on the OPPO Find N acts as a support when the screen is folded. The hinge design eliminates the gaps between the screens when folded, offering a more complete look and protecting the inner screen from scratches.
The gear and spring structure in the Flexion hinge allows the OPPO Find N to stand upright when the screen is opened at an angle between 50-120 degrees. Equipped with software specially designed for phones with a foldable screen, the FlexForm feature on OPPO Find N can provide users with the flexibility to use it in various scenarios.
Continuing its innovation, OPPO is also introducing a slimmer foldable screen mobile phone in late 2022 called OPPO Find N2 Flip that comes with New Generation Flexion Hinge support.
Compared to the previous generation, the New Generation Flexion Hinge has an increase in the ability to fold the screen so that it is almost invisible even if the user is constantly opening and closing the screen.
The new generation Flexion hinge will make the screen fold into a teardrop shape so that it provides space so that the screen does not fold too much when the device is closed, so that the effect on the folds of the screen is not visible to the naked eye when the main screen is stretched.
Based on information from OPPO, the New Generation Flexion hinge is capable of providing a folding depth of 0.11 mm and 1.29The claimed to be smaller than other foldable phones with a U-shaped hinge construction that has a fold depth of 0.22mm and 4.22The. This makes the OPPO Find N2 Flip more compact than other flip phones when closed.
If the New Generation Flexion Hinge can make the folds of the Find N2 Flip’s screen almost invisible in daily use, the construction of the U-shaped hinge often causes the screen to fold when the screen is bent continuously.
OPPO Find N2 Flip also received TUV Rheinland certification after passing 400,000 times of testing or the equivalent of ten years of use. This shows that the hinge of this device has strong and durable strength.
Thanks to this hinge, the OPPO Find N2 Flip also features a FlexForm feature that can present an attractive choice of angles when users want to take photos, record videos, view information or enjoy entertainment content.
You could say that the new generation Flexion Hinge is one of the spearheads that makes the Find N2 Flip phone have a main screen that is barely visible for a flip phone.
