Most people are aware of OnePlus plans to follow the trend toward foldable phones. OnePlus officially announced in March 2023 that it would be joining the foldable phone market in the third quarter of that year.
Even as OnePlus has kept some information about its next foldable device under wraps, Smartprix has had an exclusive first peek at the eagerly awaited OnePlus V Fold even before it is officially unveiled. In association with the dependable industry insider Steve “OnLeaks” Hemmerstoffer, Smartprix has acquired in-depth renders that highlight the OnePlus V Fold eye-catching design features.
Early rumors about the OnePlus V Fold have given rise to predictions that the company may rename the OPPO Find N2 as the OnePlus Fold. We are here to correct the record and refute such assertions, nevertheless. Images of a prototype unit in the testing phase, which often closely matches the finished product, were used to derive our conclusions. The OnePlus V Fold will undoubtedly have its own unique personality and will not be a carbon copy of the OPPO Find N2, despite the possibility of some slight tweaks.
OnePlus Fold in 5K resolution
The next OnePlus V Fold is expected to have a striking imitation leather back that gives it a high-end appearance and a cozy feel in the palm. Our pictures of the OnePlus Fold also show off its triple rear camera setup, which is adorned with the recognizable Hasselblad logo. Importantly, a periscope lens is incorporated, enabling optical zoom features similar to those of the Samsung S23 Ultra. Outside of the camera island, in the left-hand corner, is the rear camera flash.
The well-known alert slider, a point of difference frequently found in OnePlus flagships, will be present on the OnePlus Fold. A fingerprint sensor is also elegantly integrated into the power button of the OnePlus V Fold, providing customers with the ease of secure biometric verification. Your eyes will be pulled to the device’s front, which is dominated by a sizable screen with thin bezels, when you turn it around.
Stylishly placed in the middle of the front screen is a selfie camera. A selfie camera is hidden inside the phone and is located in the left-side corner when the screen is opened. The OnePlus folding phone’s triple speaker system, which promises an immersive music experience, is also confirmed by renderings. The OPPO Find N2 and Samsung Galaxy Z foldable look to be the inspirations for the book-style hinge mechanism. Due to the placement of antenna bands in the side frame by OnePlus, the phone is made of metal.
While the OnePlus V Fold prototype in the renderings we’ve shown you has a faux leather finish, it’s crucial to remember that OnePlus may potentially release variations of the smartphone made of more conventional and high-end materials like metal or glass. This provides a larger variety of possibilities to accommodate various aesthetic preferences and meet personal preferences. Also, we want to stress that the name of OnePlus’ first folding phone is provisional and subject to change.
What should we expecting from the OnePlus Fold specifications?
Turning to the OnePlus V Fold’s specifications, we can see that it should provide a top-tier performance. For flagship performance, it is anticipated to include a Qualcomm SM8475 Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 processor. A 2K 120Hz AMOLED (LTPO) display, which offers vivid images with a high refresh rate for improved fluidity, is believed to be present on the phone.
The OnePlus V Fold’s powerful 50MP (IMX 890) main camera, along with an ultra-wide lens and a periscope lens, enable varied image capabilities, which will excite photography fans. A 32MP (OV32C) front camera on the device allows for crystal-clear video calls and gorgeous selfies. The OnePlus V Fold will come with a powerful Li-Po 4800mAh battery with 100W SuperVOOC charging to support extended usage.
