OnePlus is finally launching its foldable handset in late 2023. On the other hand, it has been many years in the foldable phone market, and Samsung still reigns. Now, the question in mind is, can OnePlus be the foldable handset that will finally be able to compete with Samsung?
Here is the answer: The OnePlus President and CEO, Kinder Liu, added a statement during the launching of its OnePlus 11 Concept handset featuring advanced cooling technology. He said that the company would launch its first foldable smartphone sometime later in the year, which aims to be at the pinnacle experience of today’s foldable market.
On the other hand, the Chinese tech maker has so far showcased its first folding phone during the Cloud 11 release conference, which is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2023. But at the time, we were still determining how the premium company would structure its upcoming products.
At MWC 2023, OnePlus officially confirmed launching its foldable phone in the “second half of 2023”. The brand CEO revealed interesting details on the dynamic foldable gadget.
OnePlus COO Kinder Liu said:
Our first foldable phone will have the signature OnePlus fast and smooth experience. It must be a flagship phone that doesn’t settle because of its folding form, in terms of industrial design, mechanical technology, and other aspects. We want to launch a device that aims to be at the pinnacle experience of today’s foldable market.
OnePlus COO: Kinder Liu said that the first foldable phone would have the signature OnePlus fast and smooth experience. He added that the firm is trying to create a device that can meet the users’ needs in every aspect in terms of industrial design, mechanical technology, and other aspects.
Significantly, the company points to only one device, while we assume two models – ‘Book’ and ‘clamshell’ foldable devices. Apart from this, the company has also revealed the trademarks for the names V Fold and V Flip, which again creates a puzzle regarding the amount of foldable.
