Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has officially released its debut foldable phone, the OnePlus Open. This new offering is a rebranded version of Oppo’s recent foldable release, the Find N3, both of which were launched simultaneously on Thursday, October 19, 2023. Though identical twins, subtle differences distinguish the OnePlus Open from the Oppo Find N3, like the brand logo at the back of the phone and the user interface.
Here’s a closer look at what the OnePlus Open brings to the table:
Design and User Interface:
While the Oppo Find N3 displays the Oppo logo on its rear, the OnePlus Open proudly sports the OnePlus brand. Furthermore, the OnePlus Open operates on OxygenOS 13.2, as opposed to the ColorOS found on the Oppo Find N3.
The OnePlus Open, similar to the Oppo Find N3, adopts a book-like folding mechanism. Its primary display is a 7.82-inch LTPO 3.0 AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2440 x 2268 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The phone boasts an aspect ratio of 1.0758:1 and brightness levels that reach 2,800 nits. Moreover, the device is equipped with an external or secondary screen – a 6.31-inch Super Fluid LTPO 3.0 AMOLED panel, maintaining the same refresh rate and brightness levels as the primary display but with a resolution of 2484 x 1116 pixels.
One of its standout features is the OnePlus Canvas. When users unfold the OnePlus Open, they’re greeted with this feature, designed to enhance multitasking. In practice, users can adjust the display size of apps or even exhibit multiple apps on the main screen. Up to three app windows can be displayed, in either vertical or horizontal screen orientation.
The rear of this smartphone is dominated by a large circular camera module, imprinted with the Hasselblad text and logo, indicating the phone camera’s collaboration with the renowned camera maker, Hasselblad.
Regarding camera specifics, the OnePlus Open is backed by a tri-camera system. Its primary camera offers a 48 MP resolution supported by a Sony LYTIA-T808 sensor. This sensor comes with a 1/1.43″ size and a 24 mm f/1.7 lens with optical stabilization. The technology incorporated promises enhanced light sensitivity. Additionally, the OnePlus Open features a 48 MP ultrawide camera with a 14 mm f/2.2 lens and an autofocus feature. There’s also a 64 MP telephoto camera with three times optical zoom.
The partnership with Hasselblad ensures that the OnePlus Open cameras benefit from Hasselblad’s color calibration technology. This foldable device also comes equipped with dual front cameras: a 20 MP camera on the primary screen and a 32 MP camera on the secondary screen.
The OnePlus Open is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 System on Chip (SoC), complemented by 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and a sizable 512 GB of internal storage.
In essence, the OnePlus Open stands as a testament to OnePlus’s technological advancements and collaboration efforts, setting the stage for potential market dominance in the foldable smartphone sector.
