    Hello Friends.

    [The Lab²] OPPO Find N Review - A Fold that is Bold by @Shivang Joshi

    Last week @Pete announced the OPPO Find N creating quite a few talks in the Community as in the tech world. @YRJ even wrote a breakdown here. Then, it was also mentioned here in UWIR Volume 2 Issue 38 hosted by @McJader. Some users were even trying to convince us to bring the OPPO Find N device to The Lab².

    Fortunately, as I had some hands-on experience with this device, it did not take a lot of convincing to agree, hence this edition of The Lab². We have prepared 3 colorways for this edition of The Lab². While there is no official naming for them, since this device isn't making its way to the international market, you can call them Black, White, and Purple.

    As mentioned, this device is a China-only device, so for now, it is not optimized for the International version. But still, we wanted our dear Community members to have a chance of experiencing this cool piece of tech – a foldable device that sports a different form factor to mainstream devices.

    I would like to send a shoutout to the crowd that shared their input in UWIR. While I admit we were already considering this option for The Lab², your clear 'yes' gave us the boost of confidence we needed. I hope this one is a huge success and I already envy the winners.

    I'm busy these days, but no amount of busy can stop me from applying for this.
    Even if I don't get selected (probably, since the competition will be brutal), I would love to see the reviews from our fellow users.
    Awesome stuff, cheers to the Community team and you, Daniel.
