Samsung is planning to launch its W23 foldable phone in China tomorrow. And as if trying to steal the company’s lightning, information about a new foldable flip phone made by Oppo has just emerged from a Chinese social media platform. Weibo. An accident? Maybe so, but it is not unreasonable to consider the possibility that Oppo will have leaked this new information in an attempt to put a damper on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 (W23 variety).

However, according to a new leak, Oppo is working on its first foldable flip phone.

These are all great features for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, at least in terms of numbers. However, there is no information about the design of the hinge, the choice of materials, the IP rating (or not), the price, or any software features that can make the phone best flip. The only details that have been leaked concern some raw materials, and we will not know if the information has been received by Oppo itself.
