Earlier this year, OnePlus teased that they would be launching their own foldable phone. A follow-up interview with the company’s COO later revealed that the handset would be launching in the second half of the year, but seeing as there are six months in the second half of 2023, the question is, when?
According to a report from Pricebaba who got tipped off by tipster Yogesh Brar, we might have a more specific timeframe for the phone’s launch. The report claims that the handset might be announced in August, or to be more specific, the first half of August, and that OnePlus will be hosting an event in New York where the handset will be revealed.
The report goes on to claim that the OnePlus Fold is expected to have a global launch so pretty much everywhere OnePlus phones are sold should be able to get their hands on the foldable.
As for its specs, the OnePlus Fold will be adopting a phone-tablet hybrid design. It will feature an 8-inch inner foldable display with a QHD+ resolution, and a 6.5-inch OLED external display with an FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and will come with 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage, and will pack a 4,800mAh battery.
There’s no word on price, but based on the price of other similar foldables like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Google Pixel Fold, we don’t expect it to come cheap.
