OnePlus revealed the OnePlus V Fold early this year, but we have yet to hear anything about it. The launch date of OnePlus’ first folding phone is unknown.
Smartprix, alongside tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (OnLeaks), provided the phone’s initial renderings based on a prototype that looks to be near completion before the formal introduction.
The source states that the OnePlus V Fold may undergo minor changes throughout development. The rumor states that the OnePlus folding phone would not resemble the Oppo Find N2 Fold.
Black renderings indicate a Hasslebad-branded model. The phone may have a fake leather back for style. The body may be metal and glass. The V Fold may include an alert slider like OnePlus phones. It toggles audio modes. Folding phones seldom include alert sliders.
The OnePlus V Fold are out.
Renders show a flat back camera module, which may be accurate. The spherical module will include three cameras, including a periscope-style camera. The cover and primary screens might include two extra camera sensors.
The report includes OnePlus V Fold specs. The smartphone may include a 2K 120Hz AMOLED (LTPO) display and an unannounced Qualcomm (SM8475) Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 SoC. OnePlus flagships have 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.
The 4800mAh battery may enable 100W SuperVOOC charging. OnePlus may introduce wireless charging. A 50-megapixel (IMX 890) primary camera, ultra-wide camera, and periscope lens are expected in the camera system. The hole-punch cover display may include a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Unlike the Pixel Fold and other Chinese folding phones, OnePlus may launch the V Fold in India due to its popularity. OnePlus pioneered affordable premium Android phones. If priced lower in India, the OnePlus V Fold may outperform competitors. Tecno Phantom V Fold cost Rs 88,888 this year. India’s Samsung folding phone costs over a lakh.
