OnePlus, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is reportedly gearing up to launch its first foldable device. According to a recent tweet by known leaker Max Jambor, OnePlus may reveal its first foldable phone in August. Although there's no specific date mentioned, past OnePlus releases suggest that the company might unveil it early in the month.
OnePlus will face significant competition in the foldable market as many other players are also working on their foldable devices. Google is expected to announce its Pixel Fold during this month's Google I/O event, while Samsung is likely to release its Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 earlier this summer.
Huawei is also planning to launch its foldable device, the P60 Pro, which is rumored to be much lighter than its competitors. Vivo is refining its foldable phones, having recently launched the X Fold 2 and the X Flip in China. Motorola is working on its next-generation Razrs, although rumors suggest its specs may be behind the curve.
While foldable phones are still quite expensive, Tecno's Phantom V Fold offers a more affordable option, with a price of $1100. It remains to be seen whether OnePlus will follow suit and introduce a more accessible price point for its first foldable device.
It seems like nearly every smartphone manufacturer is trying to enter the foldable device market, with Samsung, Google, and OnePlus all launching their own foldable phones this year. While we don't know much about OnePlus' offering, the company has a track record of producing high-quality devices, and it will be exciting to see what they come up with in the foldable category.
