OnePlus, a renowned smartphone brand under the BBK umbrella, is gearing up to join the foldable phone league. While its siblings Oppo and Vivo have already ventured into the realm of foldable devices, OnePlus is set to make its mark with the OnePlus Open. Earlier this year, the company confirmed the impending launch of a foldable phone, and today, enthusiasts got a glimpse of the official teaser, fueling rumors of a launch later this month.
In a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), OnePlus tantalizingly hinted at an upcoming smartphone with the caption, “A true OnePlus experience awaits. Opening soon.” The silhouette featured in the teaser unmistakably reveals a foldable phone, and the clever wordplay in the caption strongly hints at the device being christened the OnePlus Open.
Rumors have been circulating that the upcoming OnePlus foldable phone might be a rebranded version of the Oppo Find N3 Fold. This speculation gains weight from a recent Geekbench listing of the phone and images circulating online, showcasing Indian actress Anushka Sharma using a device that aligns with earlier renders of the Find N3 Fold. This development is particularly exciting as Oppo’s book-style foldable phones have garnered praise but have been limited to the Chinese market.
Leaked information points to the OnePlus Open making its debut in India on October 19. As for its specifications, the device is expected to boast a 7.8-inch 2K internal display with an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. Powering this foldable marvel could be the robust combination of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. Moreover, users can anticipate a substantial 4,800mAh battery, complemented by 67W fast charging capabilities.
OnePlus enthusiasts and tech enthusiasts alike are eagerly awaiting the official unveiling, marking a significant step for OnePlus into the innovative world of foldable smartphones. Stay tuned for further updates on the OnePlus Open as the launch date approaches.
