  • OnePlus is reportedly working on launching its first-ever foldable smartphones.
  • The company hasn't revealed any details about foldable smartphones so far.
  • We can expect the devices to launch later this year.
OnePlus is all set to unveil the OnePlus 11 5G, OnePlus 11R, and OnePlus Buds Pro TWS earphones at the Cloud 11 launch event on February 7. Alongside the smartphones, OnePlus is also bringing a couple of its firsts - the OnePlus Keyboard and the OnePlus Pad.

Besides these new products, the company is reportedly gearing to unveil its first foldable smartphone soon. According to a tweet from a known tipster, Mukul Sharma, the company is gearing up to launch its first-ever foldable smartphone that features a clamshell and notebook-like folding design. The former will be dubbed as OnePlus V Flip, while the latter will be called the V Fold model.

Tipster Mukul Sharma tweeted a screenshot of a trademark filed by OnePlus for its foldable devices. He also claims that internal testing of one of these devices has begun in different regions, including Europe.

OnePlus didn’t yet announce any specifications of its foldable handset ,yet, but in 2022, OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau shared pictures of a hinge on Twitter, hinting about the development of foldable devices.
Expected features and specifications
The first foldable smartphone by OnePlus could feature similarities to Oppo’s Find N, which was launched back in December 2021. The OnePlus V Fold could feature a 7.1-inch inner display with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. The device may come with a 5.49-inch outer display with a 60Hz refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

While the Oppo Find N is equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, the OnePlus foldable phones could be powered with the newest chipset.

Talking about the camera, it could feature a 50MP primary camera, 16MP ultra-wide angle and a 13MP telephoto lens, and a 32MP selfie camera, similar to Oppo Find N.

Coming to the battery, it could pack a 4500mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.

This is the second time that the news surrounding OnePlus foldable has popped up ever since 2022. Currently, there is no concrete launch timeline available yet; we can certainly expect OnePlus V Fold and OnePlus V Flip to launch sometime later this year.
