At the launch event for OPPO’s new foldable smartphone, the Find N2 Flip, the brand announced its exciting collaboration with local fashion designer Rich Mnisi.
Both Mnisi and tech journalist Nafisa Akabor joined a panel discussion about the Find N2 Flip’s design and usability at the launch, hosted at Cradle Moon Lodge in Mulderdrift.

Mnisi designed exclusive accessories to be sold alongside the OPPO Find N2 Flip to select customers.
Speaking at the launch, Mnisi said he drew inspiration from nostalgia and the Find N2 Flip makes the process easier – from streamlining research to communicating with his team.
He even shared a humorous anecdote about a friend who struggled to take a photo with the incorrect angle.
The entire photoshoot debacle caused a two-day fight.
“This one time, Bradley was shooting me on my phone and he was getting the angle wrong the whole time.
“We almost fought. Actually, we did fight for two days.”
But with the larger screen on the Find N2 Flip, Mnisi jokes that it could save friendships.

Limited edition accessories
Mnisi expanded his product range to now include phone covers and created limited edition accessories for the OPPO Find N2 Flip.
According to OPPO South Africa‘s head of marketing, Avashnee Moodley, the brand’s mission is to “elevate life through technological artistry.”
Speaking about the collaboration with Mnisi, she says: “Rich, in the space of a very short period, has elevated South African design on the world stage through a bold vision and innovative style.
His designs are inimitable, enthralling and covetable.
Bold and innovative, like OPPO
She said the relationship with Mnisi is a perfect fit for OPPO because he is bold, innovative and a trendsetter.
OPPO is a technology brand focused on innovation, so it just makes sense and is a perfect fit.
“Working with Rich over these last few months has been incredible”, she said.
The collaboration between OPPO and Mnisi not only highlights the brand’s commitment to supporting local artists, but also showcases the practicality and usability of the Find N2 Flip in everyday life.
The Find N2 Flip is available from Vodacom, MTN, Telkom and CellC in either black or purple from R1 199 per month.
