  • The OnePlus Concept One could be unveiled at CES 2020 next month.
  • OnePlus is still calling it a concept phone, suggesting that it is testing the waters in the foldable phones space.
  • ‘OnePlus Concept One’ will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 in Las Vegas next month.
Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus said that it will unveil its first ever concept phone -- the ‘OnePlus Concept One’ at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 in Las Vegas next month. As of now, OnePlus has not revealed any information about the concept device.

However, a report by the Korea Herald revealed that Concept One will be a foldable phone. Although OnePlus has not revealed any other details, it claimed that the Concept One will be an alternative future smartphone.

Essentially, it could be OnePlus’ answer to phones like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Motorola Razr and the Huawei Mate X.


OnePlus Concept One: What we know so far

Little is known about the OnePlus Concept One. But OnePlus did promise a futuristic design. It also said that the Concept One will be the first in a series of concept phones that will come with innovative technology and an alternate design approach.

In addition to a foldable display, the report also suggests that the OnePlus Concept One might support up to 40W wireless fast charging and 100W wired fast charging.

Foldable phones are not easy


At the moment, it is not known if Concept One will make it to the production line and compete with the likes of Galaxy Fold, Razr and Mate X. Among these three, the Galaxy Fold is the only foldable smartphone that has been launched commercially in multiple markets, including India.

The Motorola Razr witnessed a setback as its commercial launch is pushed back.

The Huawei Mate X finally went on sale in November, but it is not available for purchase outside of China as of now. If the OnePlus Concept One turns out to be a foldable phone, OnePlus has its task cut out.
