oneplus: OnePlus tipped to launch its first foldable smartphone in 2023 – Times of India
OnePlus seems to be planning to launch its first foldable phone next year. As per a latest tweet by known tipster Max Jambor, we may see the first foldable OnePlus smartphone in 2023. As per a previous report by PhoneArena, Jambor previously suggested that the company may launch multiple foldable devices in 2023. OnePlus’ software lead Gary Chen hinted the same during a media conference at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2022) that the company is working on foldable phone software alongside Google.
Although the executive did not reveal anything about the device, his remarks suggest that we may see a foldable smartphone from OnePlus soon. “OnePlus is working with Google on flagship devices, including foldable phones, and the new features that can be introduced in OxygenOS 13.” Chen said as per Android Central.
Currently it is not known which design will be used by OnePlus for its foldable device. However, rumours suggest that the company will at least launch one smartphone similar to the Oppo Find N. For those who are unaware, Oppo Find N is the first foldable smartphone from Oppo. It features a clamshell style design as seen on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
If previous reports are to be believed, the OnePlus foldable smartphone may come with entirely new design. According to an OnePlus patent application reported by LetsGoDigital, the company is working on a tri-fold smartphone. The patent document named Mobile terminal shows a smartphone with three foldable display parts.
According to the patent application, the displays on the smartphone will be backed by double hinge which will allow the device to fold in multiple ways. As of now, Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei are the front-runners in foldable display technology, but this design patent by OnePlus is unlike any other seen in the market.
