The foldable phone trend continues to spread. OnePlus, one of the rising names in the industry, is preparing to enter the world of foldable phones. The company continues to work on its first foldable phone, the OnePlus Open model.
OnePlus Open will be introduced on October 19
OnePlus plans to enter the foldable smartphone world with a well-equipped player. The last information about the device, which has previously revealed many leak details, is about its release date. According to Max Jambor, who is known for his closeness to OnePlus, OnePlus Open will take the stage on October 19.
Judging by previous leaks, the device is a candidate to be the strongest player in the foldable world. It will use a 6.3-inch AMOLED panel with a 20Hz refresh rate on the front. Open, which has a 7.8-inch AMOLED screen with 2K resolution on the inside, offers larger screens than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 on both sides. Open, which will get its electrical power from its 4800mAh battery, will come with 67W fast charging support.
When will which OnePlus model receive the OxygenOS 14 update?
OnePlus has created the Android update schedule for smartphones. OxygenOS 14 beta will be distributed to devices starting from October.
On the other hand, the device aims to eliminate the chronic problems of foldable smartphones. As it is known, since the sector is new, it also contains some malfunctions. The durability problem, especially in the hinge section, has not been resolved yet.
A YouTuber named Mrkeybrd tested the durability of OnePlus Open hinges. In the tests carried out, the device withstood more than 400 thousand folds. This means that you can use it for 10 years even if you turn it on and off 100 times a day. With this number, it left behind Motorola Razr+, which is considered the best in the field. So much so that even Samsung’s new models, the most powerful in the foldable world, remain at 200 thousand folding levels.
