There have been rumors that OnePlus has been working on a foldable phone for several years, but now we have official confirmation that the OnePlus V Fold is real and in the works. While the company has been quite secretive when it comes to official details, there have been numerous leaks and rumors regarding the phone’s specs and design, so we already have an idea of ​​what to expect.

There is no need for you to scour the internet for all the preliminary information regarding the OnePlus V Fold because we have put together this article which will tell you everything you need to know about it. Here’s what we know so far about the OnePlus V Fold.

OnePlus V Fold: design

As for the official look of the OnePlus V Fold design, we haven’t seen much from OnePlus itself. However, we got our first look at the foldout via a leak from credible leaker @OnLeaks. The images shown in the leak look like pretty standard fare in terms of what we’d expect from a foldable phone made by OnePlus, albeit with some interesting choices. The device looks strikingly similar to Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Google Pixel Fold in terms of overall design. However, there are some key differences.

To begin with, the back of the device is said to be made of leather, giving the OnePlus V Fold a unique feel and look. This would probably make it easier to grip the phone since it won’t be as sleek as other foldable devices.

Also setting the OnePlus V Fold apart from the rest of the foldable world is the unique OnePlus camera array. The leaked images show three rear cameras arranged in a circle that looks similar to the camera island featured on the OnePlus 11. Unlike the OnePlus 11, however, the LED flash appears to be positioned in the upper left corner of the V Fold as opposed to to be part of the camera island.

The OnePlus V Fold also appears to retain the company’s signature alert slider, which can be seen on the right side of the display when folded. It’s unclear what type of hinge the foldout will use, but based on the images, there doesn’t appear to be much space between the displays when folded. Thus, the OnePlus V Fold could pull a page out of the Oppo Find N2book with a Flexion hinge that allows it to fold cleanly on itself.

It’s important to note that while the leaked renders come from a reputable leaker, the images are based on a prototype unit that’s undergoing testing, meaning it’s very possible the phone’s design could be different when it eventually launches. They still give us a good look at what OnePlus has planned for its first foldable, as there’s also a chance that the design will remain similar to what we’re seeing.

OnePlus V Fold: specifications

Qualcomm

When it comes to the specifications of the OnePlus V Folds, the company hasn’t said anything official about what we should expect. Given OnePlus’ history, however, there are a few parts that we assume will go into the foldout.

One of the most pressing questions regarding the foldable’s specifications concerns its processor. OnePlus 11 was equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which will probably also be included in OnePlus V Fold. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is one of the best processors on the market, and it’s the same chip that powers other major Android flagships like the Galaxy S23 Ultra. There are also rumors suggesting that the phone could get a slightly updated Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset instead.

In terms of display, the OnePlus V Fold is said to sport a 2K OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. This is a similar display to the one found on the OnePlus 11, so there aren’t too many surprises. We also expect the V Fold to offer a three-speaker setup for stereo audio, a feature that probably works better with foldable devices.

While the specs of the OnePlus V Folds look pretty impressive, they’re all pretty much on par with the rest of the leading Android foldables on the market. The one place it differs, however, is in the rumors surrounding its charging capabilities. OnePlus has long led the way when it comes to excellent fast charging, and it’s a safe bet to assume that it will equip the OnePlus V Fold with its best hardware in that regard. Currently, the OnePlus 11 supports charging speeds of 80W and 100W (depending on where you live), which are blazingly fast especially when compared to other popular flagships like the Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro (which only support speeds of charging of 45W and 20W, respectively).

Whether the OnePlus V Fold supports 80W or 100W charging, it will be the best foldable on the market when it comes to its battery. Rumors say it will have a 4,805mAh cell, similar to the 4,520mAh and 4,400mAh cells found in the Oppo Find N2 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, which only support charging speeds of 67W and 25W respectively.

OnePlus V Fold: cameras

Some recent leaks suggest that the OnePlus V Fold will have an impressive array of cameras on top of the rest of its solid specs. According to the leaks, the OnePlus V Fold will have a 50MP main camera that uses the Sony IMX890 sensor to capture high-quality images, the same camera found on the OnePlus 11 and Oppo Find X6.

Based on the leaked renders we’ve seen showing the collapsible camera array, we can tell that one of the cameras uses a telephoto to periscope zoom functionality. This means that the OnePlus V Fold will be able to take impressive shots from a distance. It’s unclear what the zoom range will be as we don’t have much information on what type of lenses the phone will be equipped with other than the main one, but it’s safe to assume that it will have impressive zoom with its periscope capabilities.

While we don’t know what to expect from the other two lenses on the rear camera island, it appears the OnePlus V Fold will sport two selfie cameras: one in the center at the top of the display when folded, and one in the upper left. corner of the inner screen. Both cameras are said to be 32MP lenses, similar to those found on the Oppo Find N2.

OnePlus V Fold: price

Since the OnePlus V Fold will be the first foldable OnePlus, it’s hard to know what to expect in terms of price. So far, there have been no rumors about what will be sold. OnePlus tends to be a slightly cheaper option when it comes to its flagships (OnePlus 11 retails for $699), but given that a foldable is a bit like two phones smashed together, they tend to be more expensive overall. the line.

It’s safe to assume that the OnePlus V Fold will cost at least $1,000, but it will probably cost a little more. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Google Pixel Fold both cost $1,800, and while it’s not sold in the US, the Oppo Find N2 costs around $1,120. Based on the more popular foldable competition, there’s a wide range that the OnePlus V Fold can fall into if OnePlus is trying to be competitive with its pricing.

OnePlus V Fold: release date

OnePlus

To put it bluntly: we’re still quite off the launch of the OnePlus V Fold. There haven’t been too many leaks surrounding it, which tend to increase as a device gets closer to store shelves. Additionally, the leaked renders we saw surfaced in June were of a device coming from the testing phase, meaning OnePlus may not have secured a finalized design just yet. In other words, there may still be a lot of work for the company to do on the foldout before it sees the light of day.

Luckily, one of the little official information we have about the OnePlus V Fold concerns its general release window. When OnePlus initially announced it was working on the V Fold earlier this year during Mobile World Congress 2023, the company said it would launch in the second half of the year. There’s not much going on, but that means we should expect it to launch before the end of 2023.
