It’s all on the Hinge. OPPO Find N3 Flip passes 1M fold test.

Estimated read time 4 min read

When OPPO first launched their first flip phone, the OPPO Find N2 Flip, we wrote about that the success of the device is heavily attributed to the game-changing Flexion Hinge that the brand created. It made the crease significantly less compared to its predecessors.

A generation after, the OPPO Find N3 Flip followed up on this and made the already amazing zero-gap hinge 25% stronger thanks to the aircraft-grade stainless steel core. It also has an ingress rating of IPX4 meaning small splashes of daily life, like rain or spilled drinks, will not get in the way of the OPPO Find N3 Flip…or its hinge.

In fact, OPPO received a Reliable Folding Certification from TÜV Rheinland because of the Flexion Hinge on the OPPO Find N3 Flip.  This certification is given to the device as it was able to pass all the quality performance evaluation standard introduced by TÜV Rheinland specifically for foldable screen smartphones.

The certification given to OPPO proved that you can open and close the OPPO Find N3 Flip more than 1,000,000 times and the hinge and display will remain intact. If you open and close the OPPO Find N3 Flip for an average of 250 times a day, it’s going to take more than 10 years before signs of wear and tear will be seen and felt.

According to an article published by TÜV Rheinland, the OPPO Find N3 Flip was assessed on four major criteria: physical performance, holding comfort, scene durability test, and 10,000-fold durability. Based on actual data, more than 40 tests are conducted to assess the display color accuracy in the bending area, touch response, bend lifespan, creases, and more.

To prove this, OPPO held a live stream with the TÜV Rheinland testing laboratory to showcase the real-time testing process on the device.  Attendees witnessed that even after successfully passing all certification test thresholds, the device was still being continuously folded in the lab for over 1,000,000 times.

The Reliable Folding certification process also entails extreme tests such as resistance to impacts from foreign objects (simulating a device drop), folding at a high temperature of 50°C, and folding at a chilly -20°C. It is expected that products must continue to offer an optimal user experience after these tests, ensuring minimal crease changes, consistent screen flatness, reduced hinge noise, smooth opening and closing actions, and minimal distortions in the bending area.

The goal of the certification process is to meet consumers’ expectations for dependable and long-lasting foldable screens. Being able to fold the OPPO Find N3 Flip 1,000,000 times is testament to the durability of the product, ensuring every user a stellar experience they can enjoy for a very long time.
