With the announcement of the OnePlus Open tomorrow, on 19th October, we take this opportunity to provide all the details we have acquired so far. It has been confirmed by OnePlus that the OnePlus Open is a rebranded Oppo Find N3. An email sent to The Verge confirms that both companies have worked on developing the device with only the names differing for release in distinct countries. It is rumoured that the Oppo Find N3 will only be released in China, while the OnePlus Open will be available globally.

It has been reported that the internals of both devices are the same by Roland Quandt at WinFuture. The price for the OnePlus Open is reportedly set at USD 1699. OnePlus has provided a forum post which explains every detail of the announcement. The launch event will be livestreamed on YouTube on 19th October at 10AM EDT / 4PM CEST / 7:30PM IST.

Paras Guglani, a relatively unknown leaker from India, mentioned that the OnePlus Open will receive updates for 10 years. This is three years more than what Google provides for their Pixel 8-series, which, if true, would be exceptional.

As for the specs: the table below is a summary of what the OnePlus Open will be packing.

A while ago, OnLeaks already leaked the renders of the OnePlus Open - previously called the OnePlus V Fold. This time, OnLeaks and Smartprix have shared new renders. The leaker claims that OnePlus has made some last-minute changes to the design and especially to the aspect ratio. The renders are based on pre-production unit drawings.

As we can see in the image above, the new design (right) is much smaller. It doesn't really look like a phone anymore, it's much too wide. Rumour has it that the OPPO Find N2 influenced this. For the record, OPPO and OnePlus work closely together on both hardware and software. This choice was made for "better content viewing". The corners are also rounded and the bezels are a little smaller.

The hinge has also changed: it now has a rounded profile for style and ergonomics. It also has a flat outer frame, and the speakers have been adjusted for better audio by moving the position of the bottom speakers.

The camera island is also way bigger, as it now covers up almost half of the phone's back. The cameras themselves look different too. According to Smartprix, there's a LiDAR or Time-of-Flight sensor. The flash light's size has increased as well.

The selfie camera on the inner display has moved from the top left to the top right of the phone.

The OnePlus Open was supposed to launch at 29 August in New York, but due to "unexpected turn of events", the launch has been slightly delayed, according to Jambor. The previous display was also made by BOE, but it seems that OnePlus was not happy with the result. The new iteration will use Samsung panels.

Some time ago, Yogesh Brar leaked the specifications of OnePlus' first foldable phone, and now another leaker has confirmed them. An anonymous industry source has leaked the specifications and MySmartPrice has published them. According to the source, the foldable device will have a 7.8-inch foldable AMOLED display with 2K resolution running at 120Hz. The outer display will be a 6.3-inch AMOLED, also running at 120Hz. The resolution is unknown, but it's likely to be 1080p. The SoC is said to be a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and will have 16GB of RAM along with 256GB of storage. The battery will be a 4800mAh one that can be charged at 67W. A 4800mAh seems like a pretty small battery when you consider that it will have two displays: both running at 120Hz, but one of them with a 2K resolution.

There are three cameras on the back of the phone: a 48MP primary camera, a 48MP ultra-wide secondary camera and a 64MP telephoto camera. It has two selfie cameras: a 32MP and a 20MP one. The selfie cameras will have different positions. It will also feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and also includes an alert-slider. The foldable phone will be shipped with OxygenOS 13.1, which is based on Android 13.

It's remarkable how some specifications differ from the leak of Yogesh Brar (scroll down to read about it). The spec table has been updated accordingly.

After the renders were leaked by OnLeaks, leaksters Ice Universe and Max Jambor have responded to the renders. Ice Universe replies to a user on Twitter. The user asks what the colour options are and Ice Universe replies with "golden", implying that it might come in a gold colour. Max Jambor then replies to Ice Universe saying that it might be China-only, but that there will also be black and green colour options.

The renders of the OnePlus V Fold have been leaked by OnLeaks in collaboration with Smartprix. Previous claims suggested that OnePlus' foldable phone would be nothing more than a rebranded OPPO Find N2, but Smartprix claims that this is not the case. The proof is in the renders of the prototype, which are usually very similar to the final product.

Looking at the image, we can see that the back of the OnePlus V Fold has a leather back with three cameras. One of them seems to be a periscope camera, which was also claimed in a previous leak. The branding on the back is that of Hasselblad, with whom OnePlus has a partnership. The flash for the rear camera is located in the top-left corner of the phone. In the middle of the screen we can see the front camera.

On these pictures, we can clearly see the alert-slider, a fingerprint scanner and the volume buttons. The sides of the phone are made of metal.

It's worth noting that on the last render, the front camera is positioned differently. That's because the V Fold has two front cameras, so you can use one when the phone is folded and one when it's unfolded. The renders also confirm that there are three speakers.

Last year, it was already known that OnePlus is working on its first foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Fold V and its name has been spotted on a trademark website. It's rumoured that the foldable phone will look identical to the foldable phones from OnePlus' sister company OPPO: the OPPO Find NOnePlus even confirmed that it will announce a foldable phone "later this year". Later, sketches of the OnePlus Fold V have been leaked by DigitalChatStation (ed: linking to another website as Weibo doesn't show the image anymore). Now, Max Jambor has tweeted that the OnePlus Fold V will be launched sometime in August.
