We discovered that OnePlus will use Find N3, which will give the phone an 8-inch internal display and a 120Hz refresh rate.

After months of speculation, OnePlus has revealed that it is prepared to enter the foldable market, with the first foldable phone to be launched this year.

According to reports, the company may already be working on two devices, but we anticipate that only one will come in 2023, most probably a larger book-style folding phone.

Here’s what we know so far about the unannounced OnePlus foldable phone.

We have discovered that OnePlus will use Find N3, which will give the phone an 8-inch interior display and a 120Hz refresh rate, similar to the Google Pixel Fold or Galaxy Z Fold 4, but in a rather larger form.

Given the alleged base of the Oppo Find N2, we can expect some of its most eminent features to find their way to OnePlus.

The “waterdrop” hinge, particularly, is a superb choice for a foldable display with a less prominent crease from the center of the inner screen.

The renders show a phone with a triple camera array placed in a circular region on the back. The warning slider, an integral part of many OnePlus flagships, also appears in the design.

Price and Availability of OnePlus First Foldable Phone

OnePlus has officially revealed that the foldable OnePlus, named OnePlus Open, will be available this year. It is scheduled to be launched in August, according to rumors.

Given that it’s a horizontally folding device with premium hardware, we should anticipate it to cost between $1,500 and $1,800, precisely like the Galaxy Z Folds and Pixel Folds of the world.

Features of OnePlus’s First Foldable Phone Camera

We should expect a 48Mp primary camera, a 48Mp ultrawide, and a 64Mp telephoto lens and sensor. However, the specifics of those lenses and sensors have yet to be verified.

There should be a 32Mp selfie camera on the front of the phone and a 20Mp one embedded in the upper left corner of the inner display.

The OnePlus Fold is anticipated to ship with a 4,800 mAh battery and 67W charging capabilities, less than the 5,000 mAh battery in the OnePlus 11. OxygenOS 13.1, based on Android 13, is likely to address the software field, but it remains to be seen how OnePlus plans to add additional features to the wider canvas.

Specifications of One Plus’s First Foldable Phone

Regarding the specifications, the OnePlus Fold will have a 6.3-inch AMOLED cover screen with FHD + resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

The outward-facing display is also rumored to include a 20MP selfie camera positioned behind a punch-hole cutout in the center.

The main 7.8″ LTPO AMOLED display is likely to have a resolution of 1,900 x 2,100px and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

According to the image, the 32MP selfie camera will have a punch-hole cutout in the upper left corner.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is anticipated to be the chipset of choice, with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

The OnePlus Fold is likely to have a 50MP primary camera and a 48MP ultrawide sensor, which are the same sensors available on the OnePlus 11.

Final Thoughts

OnePlus has the potential to shake up the folding market in the US, Europe and the UK. While Samsung is currently leading the field, new challengers are popping up left and right.

We expect Samsung and Google to meet some much needed competition with the release of the foldable OnePlus later this year. That may have already got an impact, as rumors claim that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 may be priced lower than previous Samsung foldables.
