For Samsung, the launch of OnePlus’ first foldable phone is both good and terrible news


While some of Samsung’s competitors are releasing their first-generation foldable phones, Samsung introduced its fifth-generation last week. One of these businesses is OnePlus, which is anticipated to introduce its first foldable phone later this month. The fact that it is known as the OnePlus Open is both beneficial and bad for Samsung. Comparatively to other Chinese companies, OnePlus sells their phones in more Western nations. In order to compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 5, the OnePlus Open is anticipated to be made accessible in additional European and North American nations. For Samsung, this means increased competition. According to rumors, the OnePlus Open has more spectacular camera gear, larger screens, and a considerably larger battery. The foldable phone from OnePlus may lure some customers away from Samsung due to its superior hardware specifications.

The OnePlus Open does, however, provide income for Samsung Electronics. Now, though, the business has chosen to make use of a superior foldable OLED panel from Samsung Display. It is said to have a 7.8-inch foldable OLED display with QHD+ resolution and a 6.3-inch cover display with Full HD+ resolution. Samsung Display’s foldable OLED screens are widely regarded as being superior to those made by BOE. Therefore, even if OnePlus’ first foldable phone will compete with Samsung’s mobile phone company, it will generate income for Samsung’s display manufacturing business.

According to earlier claims, the OnePlus Open would reportedly use the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, 16GB RAM, and 512GB storage as the Galaxy Z Fold 5. Additionally, it might have a 50MP main rear camera, a 48MP ultrawide camera, a 64MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom, a 32MP selfie camera on the cover screen, a 20MP selfie camera on the foldable screen, and more. An anticipated 4,800mAh battery with 67W rapid charging will power it. Price estimates for this phone range from $1,500 to $1,800.
