With its book-like foldable design aspect, the OnePlus Open smartphone challenges competitors such as the Google Pixel Fold and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. Although it is not as thin and light as the newly unveiled HONOUR Magic V2, the new foldable is still significantly lighter than the foldables from Google and Samsung. Here, it has an alert slider as well.
Regarding the screens, you get a 7.8-inch 2K OLED folding screen (1.0758:1) and an exterior 6.3-inch smartphone screen (2,484 x 1,116, 20:9). The smartphone panel’s aspect ratio falls between that of Samsung and Google’s external screens, and unlike the Pixel Fold’s primary display, which is squat, the folding screen is nearly square.
The phone runs the Oxygen OS 13.2 skin on top of Android 13. OnePlus is also releasing a number of features to capitalise on the larger screens. Multi-window and split-screen functionality, resizable windows, multi-app presets (similar to app pairings), drag-and-drop sharing, and the usual taskbar are all included. OnePlus, thankfully, promises four major OS updates and five years of security patches.
Bluetooth 5.3, a trio of “Reality” speakers, a side fingerprint scanner, and Wi-Fi 7 are among notable features.
