At the beginning of the year, OnePlus confirmed its intention to launch its first folding mobile phone with the aim of facing manufacturers such as Samsung, Xiaomi or Motorola, who also have a device with features in their catalog. And this one is about to be officially announced. The call OnePlus Open It will be launched on October 19, and although the company has not revealed major details, we already know practically all of its features, new features and advantages over its competition.
One of the keys to the OnePlus Open is its design. OnePlus, specifically — and as some leaked images show—, will maintain a very similar aesthetic to the rest of its conventional mobile phones. That is, the brand’s folding will arrive with a back that stands out, above all, for its photographic module. This will have a circular shape that will protrude slightly from the edge. It will also include a glass back in a matte finish.
The most notable thing about the OnePlus Open’s appearance, however, is its format. It will have a “book type” design. That is, it will have a flexible screen that opens horizontally, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 or the Oppo Find N2. This will mean that the OnePlus Open will have an external screen of a size similar to that of a smartphone, so that the user will be able to easily navigate the interface without having to open the device.
The OnePlus Open screens
Of the screens, by the way, we also know details. The outer panel will be 6.31 inches. It is a Fluid AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a maximum brightness of 2,800 nits and a screen ratio percentage of 91.8%.
The flexible outer panel, on the other hand, will feature Flexi-Fluid AMOLED technology, and It will have a size of 7.82 inches. It will also have a refresh rate of 120 Hz, as well as a brightness of 2,800 nits, although it will have a little more frame, since its screen ratio is 89.6%.
Regarding the flexible screen, there is a very interesting detail that OnePlus itself has shared. The terminal will have a “Flexion” hinge —the same one that Oppo uses in its Find N— improved. This will make the panel bend more subtly, avoiding the tedious visible mark on the interior screen and preventing it from being damaged in the short term.
Processor, storage and battery
According to rumors, the OnePlus Open will arrive equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It will also do so with a variant with up to 16 GB of RAM, as well as 512 GB of internal memory. It is likely, however, that we will see more modest versions, perhaps with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
The OnePlus Open, on the other hand, could arrive with a battery of 4,800 mAh; a smaller capacity than the OnePlus 11 battery (5,000 mAh). It will also have a 67W fast charge. It is not clear if the brand’s foldable will also be compatible with wireless charging.
This will be the cameras of the OnePlus Open
OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus Open will arrive with a new sensor Sony LYTIA-T808 48 megapixel. This one, in particular, incorporates Pixel Stacked technology, which is capable of capturing more light despite the sensor size being relatively small.
The OnePlus Open will also have a second ultra-wide-angle camera with 48 megapixel resolution, as well as a tThird 64-megapixel telephoto sensor capable of capturing images with 3x optical zoom. The telephoto camera could also offer a zoom of up to 6x in hybrid format (mixing optical and digital zoom), as well as a digital crop of up to 120x.
The OnePlus foldable, on the other hand, It will have two cameras dedicated to selfies. One located on the exterior screen, which will have a resolution of 32 megapixels; and another on the flexible interior screen, with a resolution of 20 megapixels.
