Leaked renders give us a glimpse of OnePlus’ first foldable smartphone

Folding the competition with its upcoming foldable?

The air has been buzzing with gossip and excitement about OnePlus' highly-anticipated, maiden foray into the world of foldable smartphones. The brand confirmed the launch earlier this year and now a new leak has revealed the design of the upcoming smartphone.

Leaked design renders, via industry insider Steve ‘OnLeaks’ Hemmerstoffer‘s tweet, shows OnePlus' upcoming foldable smartphone has Hasselblad-tuned cameras, housed in a circular camera module at the rear, displaying the Hasselblad logo at its centre. Adding a touch of novelty, the device boasts a faux leather back panel, a rare sight in foldable phones, lending it a refreshing aesthetic.

Positioned at the top left corner of the rear panel is the LED flash module, while the frame features mostly flat surfaces at the top and bottom, with an alert slider at the left edge. The power button on the right edge is expected to double as a fingerprint scanner, combining convenience and security.

Turning our attention to the front, the OnePlus foldable phone reveals a seemingly expansive display adorned with slim bezels. Situated at the top centre is a hole-punch cutout housing the front camera. According to reports, this impressive device is rumoured to sport a 2K AMOLED display with an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. As anticipation mounts, it's expected that more details about the OnePlus foldable phone will surface soon, with a potential launch in various markets slated for August.
