As OnePlus continues its campaign to expand its portfolio, it seems the next step is the obvious-foldables. According to a new report, OnePlus is planning to release its first foldable phone later this year.
Reportedly, the upcoming phone will be based on, or a copy of, the OPPO Find N that was unveiled last year. OnePlus is owned by OPPO and has merged with its parent company, so that’s not surprising. The company has already announced several devices similar to OPPO or Realme – another OPPO-branded product. The upcoming OnePlus 10R and OnePlus Ace are likely to be followed by the Realme GT Neo 3, for example.
Announcing the OPPO Find N rebadge will be a welcome surprise for fans, as the Find N is widely seen as one of the best foldable devices on the market, thanks to its excellent design and almost creaseless use. In addition, the OPPO Find N also performed very well in JerryRigEverything’s durability test earlier in the year. Unfortunately, however, Find N is still only for OPPO’s home market of China. This OnePlus foldable will essentially be a smart business decision by OPPO to bring the first product to the world market with the brand of the Western brand.
As it stands, the actual launch plans – with all the hardware differences compared to the OPPO Find N – for the OnePlus foldable phone are still unknown. However, we will keep you updated.
