Following the rumored moniker for OnePlus's first foldable smartphone last week, a new lead suggests the specific launch date for the device as well. If this is to be believed, the OnePlus Open could be unveiled at the end of August, which is hot on the heels of Samsung's foldable event this month.

Launch date of OnePlus's first foldable smartphone

The same source that first reported that OnePlus could announce and release its foldable device in August is now providing a specific date on when this will kick off. According to prolific leaker Max Jambor, OnePlus will hold an event on August 29 in New York, and it will debut the OnePlus Open. This detail is supported by SmartPrix, which also leaked the first pictures of the foldable.

It was remembered last year that the OnePlus 10T (review) was also revealed in the same month and venue. Hence, it further gives credibility to the given information.

Regarding the release date of the OnePlus Open, it is not mentioned whether the launch event will see an availability after it. It is possible that the handset could make its way to stores immediately after the launch or only a few weeks later. Interestingly, it would put OnePlus Open head-to-head against Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Flip 5 which are expected to be announced at the end of July.

The OnePlus Open or Fold is said to enlist a book-styled folding form factor with a 6.3-inch AMOLED cover screen and a 7.8-inch 2K main display. Furthermore, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip paired with 16 GB of RAM and 256/512 GB storage. The triple camera setup at the back is helmed by a 48 MP main sensor along with a 48 MP ultrawide and 64 MP periscope snapper.

OnePlus 12 launch window for China and international markets

Not only the launch of the OnePlus Open has been cleared out. The source stated about the other upcoming OnePlus flagship as well, which is the OnePlus 12. Unsurprisingly, OnePlus is tipped to reveal the OnePlus 12 in December in China. This will be followed by a global release in January or February 2024.

The OnePlus 12 has been leaked extensively, including its latest renders showing off the new periscope camera at the back. It will also sport a new centered punch hole and thinner bezels on the display. The device will arrive with the unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 rather than this year's flagship processor of Qualcomm.

Are you intending to get the OnePlus Open or OnePlus 12 once they are released later this year? Perhaps you prefer to grab Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5 or Galaxy Z Flip 5? Hit us up with your answers in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
