OnePlus will soon launch its first foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open. Recently, a tipster posted that the phone had been officially announced by the company. According to him, it could be launched on October 19th.
Its pre-production units have also leaked, giving an idea of its characteristic design. Before its official release, this smartphone was spotted in someone’s hand for the first time.
Recently, an Instagram account called viralbhayani posted a video showing Anushka Sharma using a foldable smartphone. From the earlier leaked visuals, we can conclude that this is the OnePlus Open. It can be seen that she is flaunting the phone’s rear side and then unfolding it.
As a result, OnePlus is trying to maintain a high level of excitement about the first foldable smartphone it will launch in India. The company hasn’t yet announced the launch in the market, but this also suggests the product will be available soon.
The updated renders of the OnePlus Open are based on pre-production unit images, according to Onleaks. Thus, they provide the best and most comprehensive overview of the upcoming product. In addition, the updated renders differ from the previously leaked CAD-based renders.
According to the new images, the OnePlus Open looks more compact than the previously leaked render, which had a taller form factor. As a result, its aspect ratio has been widened to resemble that of the OPPO Find N2 or even the Google Pixel Fold. It also looks tiny, almost the size of a wallet. All sides of it are curved.
Compared to the early renders, the circular camera module on the back panel also becomes larger. The device is equipped with two sensors, a periscope lens, an ‘H’ branding confirming the presence of Hasselblad, and another sensor that may be a Time-of-Flight or LiDAR sensor. There is no change in the position of the LED flash unit on the back panel, although its size has increased. Also, the foldable phone’s back panel is textured with faux leather.
Both the interior and exterior displays of the OnePlus Open have thin bezels. On the main display, the punch-hole is located in the center, while on the interior screen, it is located in the top right corner.
OnePlus Open’s new renders are characterized by its boxy form factor. On the right edge, there are two rocker buttons, the first of which probably doubles as a fingerprint reader. The left side of the device also features the brand’s iconic Alert Slider. There will be four speakers on the foldable phone, located at the top and bottom of the device. At the bottom of the device is a USB-C port.
