One Plus Fold to Be Unveiled in New York in August
OnePlus Fold will probably be launched in New York in August and will thus come into direct competition with Samsung Galaxy Flip5 and Fold5.
The first foldable smartphone from OnePlus will arrive in the third quarter of the year, the company’s CEO Pete Lau himself has said. A new rumor from a usually reliable source now gives us some more details.
Among about where the phone will be launched.
Launch and Global Sales
First, apparently, the phone should be presented in New York in the first half of August. This means that it will be presented just one or two weeks after Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold5 and Flip5, if we are to trust the latest rumors about Samsung’s next Unpacked event on July 26.
In addition, it is said that the phone is being rolled out globally – this in contrast to, for example, the Google Pixel Fold, which only came out in selected countries, including not Denmark.
Of course, this means that it will come out on the market in the USA, India, Denmark and all other countries that today have OnePlus phones on the shelves.
May Be a One Plus Version of The Oppo N3
Interestingly, Oppo is said to ship its N3 on the market in China in August, and recent rumors mention something that the OnePlus Fold may be intended as an international version of that phone.
Oppo and OnePlus work closely together and have the same owners, so presumably there may be something to that talk.
Expected Specs on One Plus Fold
If true, it will have an eight-inch internal foldable display with QHD+ resolution and a 6.5-inch FHD+ exterior display, both with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Inside sits the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512GB UFS 4.0 memory. The OnePlus Fold is expected to carry Android 13 with OxygenOS 13.1 from the start. If that happens, it will be a bit of a disappointment considering that it launches around the same time as Google launches Android 14.
The last specifications we know of give the phone a battery of 4.800 mAh with support for 80W charging with cable, a main sensor of 50 megapixels with OIS, an ultra-wide angle of 48 megapixels and a periscope telephoto lens of 32 megapixels, as well as a selfie camera for each screen of 32 megapixels.
