According to a recent leak, OnePlus is set to enter the foldable smartphone market with its upcoming device rumored to be called the “OnePlus V Fold.” The leak suggests that this foldable device will boast impressive specifications.
The inner display is reported to be a substantial 7.8 inches with a 2K resolution and a high 120Hz refresh rate, surpassing the sizes of both the Pixel Fold and Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series. On the other hand, the outer display is said to be a 6.3-inch panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, but the aspect ratios have not been disclosed.
Under the hood, the OnePlus V Fold is expected to feature the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which comes as no surprise since it is also present in the OnePlus 11. It is speculated to offer 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, positioning it as a flagship device.
Power will be provided by a 4,800mAh battery with 67W fast charging support through USB-C. Although not as fast as the OnePlus 11, it is significantly quicker than the charging speeds of Google and Samsung’s foldable phones. The device will come with Android 13 running OxygenOS.
In terms of cameras, the leak reveals that the OnePlus V Fold will sport a 48MP primary camera, a 48MP ultrawide camera, and a 64MP camera equipped with a telephoto lens. However, the extent of the optical zoom capabilities remains unclear. It is worth noting that the OnePlus 11 only offers a 2x telephoto lens. Selfie enthusiasts will be pleased to find a 32MP front camera on the outer display and a 20MP front camera on the inner display.
OnePlus has officially confirmed that its first foldable device will launch in the third quarter, with rumors pointing to a potential release in August. Preview renders of the device showcase a design featuring a large circular camera bump and a reasonably wide outer display. With its impressive specifications, OnePlus aims to enter the foldable smartphone market strongly.
