Over the past few weeks, there have been several leaks surrounding the device, including the device’s renders, giving us an idea about what the device will look like.

The OnePlus Open is expected to be priced at $1,699 (approx. ₹1,41,300). The device will compete with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, which has been priced starting at ₹1,54,999 in India.
Everything we know so far
In addition to the renders, the teaser shared by OnePlus on X (formerly Twitter), has confirmed some of the rumours. The OnePlus Open will feature an Alert Slider, seen on several OnePlus smartphones. Additionally, it will come with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, just like the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
The OnePlus Fold is expected to be launched in two colour options – a black colour variant with a leather back and a green colour variant with a glass back. At the back, the foldable smartphone will come with a large circular camera module, featuring a triple camera setup, consisting of a 48MP primary camera, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 64MP telephoto lens.
The OnePlus Fold is expected to feature a large 7.8-inch OLED display on the inside and a 6.31-inch OLED display on the outside. It is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Interestingly, soon after the launch, Qualcomm is slated to announce the Snapdragon Gen 3 chipset. Finally, it is expected to be powered by a 4,805mAh battery with 100W fast charging support. The battery is not only bigger than the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s 4,400mAh battery, it is also ahead in terms of charging compared to the 25W charging offered by Samsung.
