While Samsung continues to dominate the foldable smartphone market, there are a few other smartphone makers working on foldable phones of their own. This includes the likes of Oppo, and thanks to a new leak from Digital Chat Station, some of the specs for the rumored device have been revealed.
For one, Oppo’s folding phone will feature a design similar to that of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. This means we’ll see a phone that unfolds into a tablet-like state, while providing a usable cover screen. However, this outer screen will be capped at 60Hz, which could be considered a downgrade if you already own the Z Fold 3 with its 120Hz Cover Screen.
Thankfully, the main display will not see any of those limitations, as it will be capable of a 120Hz refresh rate. There will be a hole-punch selfie camera placed in the top left corner, instead of having it on the right-side of the folding screen. Oppo will also be integrating a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is the perfect way to go when it comes to phones of this size.
Digital Chat Station also provided a bit of insight when it comes to the camera hardware that will be implemented on Oppo’s foldable phone. The aforementioned selfie camera will make use of a 32MP sensor, while users will enjoy a triple-camera setup on the back. The design will be similar to that of the recently-released Oppo Reno 6, but will use a primary 50MP sensor and presumably an additional ultra wide lens and telephoto camera.
Previously, Oppo was rumored to be releasing this new foldable phone sometime in November. However, considering that the month is pretty much over, it’s clear that these rumors were false. There is the potential that Oppo is going to make some type of formal announcement before the end of 2021, so we’ll just have to wait and see what’s to come.
