When compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5, OnePlus’ folding phone will be far thinner
In the market for foldable smartphones, Samsung is beginning to face increasing levels of competition from other Android manufacturers. Foldable smartphones from Huawei, OPPO, Tecno, Vivo, and Xiaomi have already been released, which puts Samsung’s Galaxy Z series at a competitive disadvantage. OnePlus, another another Chinese company that makes Android smartphones, is getting ready to release a product that will compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 5. OnePlus is rumored to have plans to release a high-end foldable smartphone onto the worldwide market in the second half of this year, according to a tip from a Chinese source named Digital Chat Station. It appears that the device possesses a huge screen, a periscope camera, and a design that is quite thin.
In addition to this, the report asserts that the product in question is in reality a rebranded OPPO handset with the model number OPPO PHN110. There is a possibility that it will be marketed everywhere as the OnePlus V Fold. According to reports, the display of the smartphone is a foldable 120Hz LTPO OLED panel. It is possible that it will have a hinge that is very similar to the one seen on the OPPO Find N2. If it does, this will result in the crease being much less obvious, and the phone will fold entirely flat. In addition, the device is said to have a very thin profile, much like the Huawei Mate X3 and the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 smartphones.
In addition to that, it is rumored to include OnePlus’s recognizable Alert Slider switch. It is very likely that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU will be used in its build. On the rear of the device is said to be a three-camera arrangement consisting of a primary camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels (Sony IMX890), an ultrawide camera, and a telephoto camera with a periscope lens for enhanced magnification. According to reports, two different selfie cameras have resolutions of 32 megapixels and 20 megapixels, respectively. It is anticipated that it will have a battery capacity of 4,800 mAh and will support OnePlus’s 65W+ fast charging technology.
It’s highly unlikely to have a water resistance rating of IPX8, though. When OnePlus finally releases its first foldable phone, Samsung will have already introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 5 to the market. It is anticipated that it would include displays of the same size as its predecessor, but the brightness of those displays may be improved. In addition, because the redesigned hinge is curved like a water droplet, it is anticipated that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 would have a crease that is less obvious. It is anticipated that the phone will come equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, an IPX8 rating, and cameras identical to those found in the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
