OnePlus V Fold leaked renders present a big foldable cellphone with a Hasselblad digital camera system

With a launch date set for someday this yr, OnePlus would possibly simply be the final main Android model leaping into the foldable area… however like they are saying, it’s extra necessary to do it proper than to do it first.

OnePlus isn’t one to shy from innovation. They’ve made telephones with electrochromic glass, they even designed a fluid cooling system into the OnePlus 11 Idea which debuted at MWC this yr, and the cellphone maker is now able to debut their first foldable, allegedly dubbed the OnePlus V Fold. Set for a launch someday this yr, the V Fold options the identical book-like folding type of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, the Oppo Discover N2, and the Google Pixel Fold. Thanks to those rendered pictures based mostly on leaks supplied to Smartprix and OnLeaks, we now have a reasonably detailed take a look at the upcoming foldable, together with just a few robust speculations on the {hardware} entrance too.

Based mostly on the cellphone’s folding format, it would function a major folding display and a full-size secondary display on the entrance, prompting folded in addition to unfolded use. As has been the case with a variety of OnePlus telephones prior to now, this system can have a digital camera system powered in collaboration with Hasselblad, and despite the fact that the round digital camera bump feels rather a lot just like the one on the OnePlus 11, there’s a slight deviation within the type of an offset flash module that sits on the highest left nook. The digital camera setup is rumored to incorporate a 50MP important digital camera and a telephoto lens for periscope zoom performance. The cellphone is imagined to have two selfie cameras, each rumored at 32MP every. The again appears to be like to be created from fake leather-based, giving the cellphone a premium contact together with that additional little bit of grip wanted to carry the hefty system. In spite of everything, no person likes dropping their cellphone, particularly when it’s an costly foldable.

Based mostly on credible rumors, the V Fold will sport a 2K AMOLED show with a 120Hz refresh charge and a triple-speaker setup for stereo audio. The cellphone itself is predicted to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or an upgraded Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset, alongside a 4800mAh battery with 100W SuperVOOC charging.

Given OnePlus’ shut affiliation with OPPO, the cellphone can also be anticipated to sport the Flexion metallic hinge seen in OPPO’s Discover N2. This distinctive hinge helped the smartphone have a smaller, slimmer design and it’s speculated that the OnePlus V Fold will profit from that little bit of innovation too. Whereas the fake leather-based again appears to be a reasonably distinct a part of the cellphone, the V Fold will in all probability include common glass variants too (one more design element taken from the OPPO playbook).

A detailed take a look at OnLeaks’ renders exhibits the reappearance of the beloved alert slider, whose disappearance within the OnePlus 10 created fairly an uproar in the neighborhood. Whereas the alert slider makes its method again to the cellphone, the facility button can also be anticipated to have a fingerprint sensor constructed into it, circumventing the necessity for a fingerprint sensor beneath the show. Whether or not that is accepted by the OnePlus fan base is but to be decided.

The OnePlus V Fold is predicted to launch in Q3 this yr, with a concentrate on gross sales in India, China, and the US. The value, in the meantime, is but to be decided, though given the OPPO Discover N2’s $1050 price ticket upon launch, count on the OnePlus V Fold to start out within the $1,000 ballpark.
