OnePlus Open Foldable: A Worthy Challenger to Samsung’s Dominance?

Published on

It’s been over four years since Samsung entered the foldable phone market, and in that time, the company has seen little competition in this space. While other manufacturers have ventured into the foldable market, it has predominantly been Chinese companies, lacking the global reach of Samsung.

Earlier this year, Google’s Pixel Fold emerged as a true competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold lineup. Now, OnePlus is set to join the fray with the launch of the OnePlus Open, scheduled to take place soon. While initially focused on the Indian market, it will eventually expand to other regions, including Europe. What sets the OnePlus Open apart are its rumored specifications, potentially outshining the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Pixel Fold in various aspects.

The OnePlus Open is rumored to feature:

  • A 6.3-inch AMOLED cover display and a 7.82-inch foldable AMOLED screen, both supporting a 120Hz refresh rate and 2,800 nits of peak brightness.
  • The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, overclocked and exclusive to Samsung’s flagship devices for a significant portion of 2023, paired with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
  • A triple rear camera setup with 48MP main, 48MP ultra-wide, and 64MP 3x telephoto cameras, along with 20MP and 32MP front-facing cameras on the inner and outer screens.
  • A 4,805 mAh battery with 80W fast charging, outperforming the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s 4,400 mAh battery with 25W charging.

However, the OnePlus Open may fall short in terms of:

  • Water resistance, as it is rumored to have an IPX4 rating, offering protection against splashes but not full immersion like Samsung’s foldables.
  • Software experience compared to Samsung’s foldables.
  • Stylus support, which it is not expected to feature.

One potential obstacle for the OnePlus Open is its price tag. Rumored to be priced at $1,699 in the US, it is only $100 less than the Galaxy Z Fold 5, which might affect its reception, considering the stiff competition in the foldable market.

As the OnePlus Open makes its debut, it’s clear that the foldable phone arena is heating up, and it remains to be seen whether OnePlus can truly challenge Samsung’s dominance in this innovative space.
