OnePlus Open and Oppo Find N3 to both launch on October 19
Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Pixel Fold are about to see a solid amount of competition.
We have been speculating about OnePlus’s first book-style foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open, for months. A few days ago, the company even announced on X, formerly Twitter, that a launch was coming soon.
It seems that day is almost here. Today, the company officially announced that the OnePlus Open will be launching next week.
According to the company’s announcement, the launch will be in Mumbai, India, on October 19, starting at 7:30 PM IST (10:00 AM EDT). The date lines up with the recent OnePlus Open release date leak we saw.
Alongside the announcement, the company has also shared an official glimpse of its first folding smartphone with flat edges and an alert slider. The Open won’t be alone, though, and Oppo’s other book-style foldable will also launch on the same day.
OPPO Find N3 to also launch on October 19
Oppo Find N3 and OnePlus Open are likely to be the same device with different labels. The two phones are also going to launch on the same day, but Oppo is holding a separate event for the N3 series.
Oppo is holding an event in Singapore on October 19, at 14:30 GMT+8 (2:30 AM EDT). The phone is likely going to be solid in different markets than the OnePlus Open.
The phone will debut globally alongside the Find N3 Flip, which is the other device in the Find N3 series. It will be interesting to see the strategy Oppo will adapt for its latest lineup of foldables.
OnePlus Open speculated hardware details
In the words of OnePlus’s president and COO, Kinder Liu, OnePlus’s new foldable would offer an “elegant, lightweight, and slim design, alongside an imperceptible screen crease, unprecedented imaging performance, efficient software, and premium quality.”
While no other details about the divide have been officially revealed, the previous OnePlus Open leaks have provided a glimpse into the smartphone’s hardware.
The OnePlus Open is expected to sport Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, with at least 256GB internal storage, a 4,800mAh battery with 67W wired charging, and durability that rivals the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
In terms of the display, the device will pack a 7.82-inch internal folding screen with a 2,268 x 2,440 pixels resolution. Meanwhile, the external screen will be 6.31-inch with a 2,484 x 1,116 pixels resolution.
The OPPO Find N3 is also going to get more or less the same specifications, we assume.
While a previous leak has revealed apparent US pricing, we will get the official pricing details and more information next week.
