The brand OnePlus stayed away from the trend of folding smartphones, leaving other manufacturers to test the concept and wipe the plaster of the first generations.
But now that the segment is well established and accepted and that several players are trying to find a place in it, the time is approaching to invite themselves to it. During the presentation of the smartphone OnePlus 11 in the international version in February, the manufacturer had very briefly mentioned a first folding smartphone for the third quarter of the year.
It was only a half-surprise since evocative brand names had already been registered, giving hope for two models: OnePlus V Fold et OnePlus V Flipand therefore two distinct formats as with Samsung and its Galaxy Z Fold / Z Flip.
Du Fold in August
Leaker Max Jambor, often aware of OnePlus’ projects, clarifies the launch schedule by saying that the OnePlus Fold will be presented during the month ofAugust 2023.
OnePlus regularly announces new products during the summer and a folding smartphone could therefore be one of the novelties of the year. Apart from the teaser evoking the hinge of the foldable screen, no details are yet known.
Oppo Find N2, precursor to a OnePlus V Fold?
However, OnePlus depends on the Oppo brand which has already launched folding smartphones Oppo Find N et N2 a version Fold et Flip and its products could be strongly inspired by them, just like the Oppo Pad 2 and OnePlus Pad Android tablets have great similarities.
Derived from Oppo smartphones?
This would not necessarily be bad news since it would mean that mobile devices would take advantage of bend-free flexible displays Oppo models, with an adapted OxygenOS interface.
If the folding smartphones of OnePlus will try to overshadow the products of Samsung, leader of the segment, they will perhaps arrive after the latter: the Korean group would indeed have the intention to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 5 et Z Flip5 from July, a few weeks ahead of the usual schedule. To confuse the competition?
