Chinese smartphone vendor OPPO has launched its first flagship foldable smartphone, the OPPO Find N, at its yearly innovation day.

A statement from the company said the device had been built after four years of research and six prototypes.

OPPO chief product officer Pete Lau said: "New form factors are ushering in an exciting new time in smartphone technology.

"OPPO has invested a significant amount of time and effort into coming up with a better approach to a foldable smartphone, experimenting with a range of form factors, hinge designs, display materials and aspect ratios, to create a new device that meets the needs of more users.

"With the OPPO Find N, we aim to change people's perceptions about what a smartphone can offer and begin making foldable devices more accessible to an even larger audience."
