OnePlus working on a foldable phone? CEO Pete Lau shares a teaser

This month seems to be all about foldable smartphones. After Xiaomi, Samsung, and Motorola launched their latest foldable device, it looks like OnePlus wants to jump on the bandwagon.

The company’s co-founder Pete Lau recently shared two photos on the social networking platform Twitter with text saying “What do you think of this?” , which suggests that the company owned by BBK Electronics may be working on a foldable phone.

While OnePlus has not revealed if they are planning to release a foldable phone, the tweet indicates that the company may be planning to enter the foldable market. The image that Lau shared shows a detail, likely used for a foldable screen. If this turns out to be true, they may be able to develop a foldable phone with ease thanks to Oppo’s R&D experience. Oppo already has Find N – a foldable phone. Given the size of the hinges, some say the rumored device will unfold like the Samsung Galaxy Fold 4.

Meanwhile, Samsung is betting big on the future of foldable phones and says the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold may outpace the Galaxy S series by 2025. For a brand like OnePlus to establish a foothold in the foldable device market and compete with Korea Southern smartphone maker may not be easy given that Samsung has some head start right now.
