As you may already know, today was a big day for Samsung. The Korean company unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold5, Galaxy Z Flip5, Galaxy Watch6 family, and the Galaxy Tab S9 line, all in one huge event held on its home turf.
OnePlus didn’t want to be left out of the spotlight, so it responded to Samsung’s launch event with the tweet you can see below.
We OPEN when others FOLD
— OnePlus (@oneplus) July 26, 2023
This pretty much confirms the name of OnePlus’ first foldable. It will be called OnePlus Open, just as recent rumors have mentioned. The use of “Fold” in the tweet also lets us know that the OnePlus Open will be competing head-on with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold5, and not the Flip5 – otherwise, it would have been “we Open when others Flip”, right?
Anyway, the OnePlus Open is expected to be announced at an event in New York at the end of August. We’ve already seen it in some leaked CAD-based renders, and interestingly enough it seems to look exactly like what a leaked schematic showed the upcoming Oppo Find N3 to be. It wouldn’t be surprising if the OnePlus Open will serve as the international version of the Find N3, which is itself expected to remain exclusive to the Chinese market.
According to previous leaks and rumors, the OnePlus Open will have a 6.3-inch AMOLED cover screen with FHD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as a 20 MP selfie camera inside a hole-punch cutout. The main screen will be a 7.8-inch LTPO AMOLED with a likely resolution of 1,900 x 2,100 and 120 Hz refresh rate. Its selfie cam is rumored to be 32 MP.
At the helm should be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The main and ultrawide cameras are rumored to be identical to those found in the OnePlus 11, while the third module will be a 64 MP telephoto camera. The phone should have a 4,800 mAh battery and 67W fast charging support.
