Pete Lau, the OnePlus CEO, stated that foldable phones had not reached the stage of commercialization yet in 2020. The company did not plan to release a folding phone at that time. Although the company was open to exploring this form factor, they wanted to wait until more advanced technologies were available.
Oppo Find N
Oppo, a subsidiary of OnePlus, launched the amazing Find N last year. It has a flat, wrinkleless display that folds seamlessly without gaps. The OnePlus Fold will be available soon.
These rumors were confirmed by Gary Chen, OnePlus Chief Software Officer. He said the phone would run a modified OxygenOS 13 based on the Android 13 operating system.
Pete Lau posted two photos on Twitter at the end of the week, asking his followers, “What do these photos show?”
OnePlus and Oppo, owned by BBK, have partnered more closely than ever on everything from design to software. The OnePlus Fold could be a rebadged Find N with OxygenOS rather than ColorOS.
