OnePlus Unveils First Foldable Smartphone – The OnePlus Open
In a move that has left tech enthusiasts buzzing with excitement, Chinese smartphone company OnePlus has officially entered the foldable phone market with its latest offering, the OnePlus Open. Joining the ranks of Samsung, Google, and Xiaomi, OnePlus aims to make a splash with its innovative design and impressive features.
The OnePlus Open boasts a book-like design, similar to the popular Galaxy Fold, which allows users to experience a larger screen when unfolded. The device features a 6.31-inch display when folded, but expands to a breathtaking 7.82-inch OLED display when opened up. This larger screen real estate provides users with a more immersive viewing experience.
What sets the OnePlus Open apart from its competitors is its display capabilities. The device supports a 120Hz refresh rate, ensuring smooth scrolling and seamless multitasking. Additionally, it comes equipped with a “Ceramic Guard” cover glass, a feature comparable to Apple’s Ceramic Shield, which provides added durability and protection.
Designed with user convenience in mind, the OnePlus Open is both thin and lightweight. When folded in half, it measures just 11.7mm thick, making it easy to slip into pockets or bags. Unfolded, it slim down to an impressive 5.8mm. Weighing only 239 grams, it offers a premium feel and form factor that falls between the Z Fold5 and the Pixel Fold.
Photography enthusiasts will be pleased to know that OnePlus has partnered with renowned camera company Hasselblad to enhance the OnePlus Open’s camera capabilities. The device boasts a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 64-megapixel telephoto camera with 6x in-sensor lossless zoom, and a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. When unfolded, users can utilize the impressive 20-megapixel front-facing selfie camera, and when closed, a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The circular housing at the back of the device, housing the lenses, adds a touch of elegance and luxury to the OnePlus Open. However, some critics have noted that it may obstruct certain shots, a minor drawback to an otherwise impressive design.
Under the hood, the OnePlus Open is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform, ensuring smooth performance and efficient multitasking. It features 16GB of RAM, providing ample memory for running multiple applications seamlessly. The device is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor power button for enhanced security, a hearty 4,805mAh battery for all-day use, and support for Wi-Fi 7 for lightning-fast connectivity.
For eager fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the OnePlus Open, pre-orders are now open. The official launch date has been set for October 26, and the device is priced starting at $1,700. With its cutting-edge features and sleek design, the OnePlus Open is set to compete fiercely in the foldable phone market, promising an unrivaled user experience.
