OnePlus just teased a Foldable: New device incoming or is OnePlus trolling its competitor Samsung?


The electronics manufacturer, OnePlus, USA has just teased a OnePlus foldable smartphone on its Instagram and Twitter handles. While we’ve viewed countless rumors and leaks within the past, the corporate has been tight-lipped about this. The foldable’s version specifications are not known yet, but the teaser reveals parts of its design.

In the 16-second long video teaser, the company has set forth a foldable, which is unfolded in a Samsung Galaxy Fold-like fashion. However, the planning hints at a split-screen or dual-screen Android phone instead of a folded display.

If it’s that way, the OnePlus foldable could be taking inspiration from the Microsoft Surface Duo and LG V60 ThinQ. The device within the teaser seems to possess a tall ratio, but we cannot say if it’s an external display or not.

From the side, the foldable seems to possess super slim bezels. With the dark screensaver running within the teaser, it’s just like the device has no bezels whatsoever. Going further with the assumptions, the space-theme of the device indicates at Hasselblad cameras, just like the current OnePlus flagships.

OnePlus Foldable Device Release Date

The OnePlus foldable teaser reveals that the device is going to be released on 11 August at 10 A.M. ET. Since the teaser came in through the OnePlus USA Twitter and Instagram, we’ll expect the device to first launch within the U.S.

Counterpoint Research says that OnePlus’ U.S. market share has grown by 182% percent. However, the corporate is yet to interrupt the large four’s market. All things considered, we will expect the OnePlus foldable device to return with flagship specifications, Hasselblad cameras, and super slim bezels. There were no updates about where to watch the launch at the time of writing this article. We’ll update it with the knowledge because it rolls out. Another interesting detail about the OnePlus foldable is that it’s launching on an equivalent day because of the new Samsung Galaxy Fold. Samsung also has an event at the same time and date, and we’ve covered how you can watch the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event.
