OnePlus, the trailblazing smartphone manufacturer, recently revealed that it would join the foldable phone brigade by launching its first foldable device. Expected to be named the OnePlus V Fold, it has been a topic of intense speculation since the announcement. Recently, a set of leaked specifications provided to MySmartPrice by OnLeaks painted a fairly detailed picture of what we might anticipate from this device.
At the heart of these revelations is a 7.8-inch inner display, which would be larger than the 7.6-inch screens sported by both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Google Pixel Fold. However, it still falls short of the impressive 8-inch display on Xiaomi’s China-exclusive Mix Fold 2. Apart from this, the OnePlus V Fold is likely to boast a 6.3-inch outer display, with both screens expected to feature OLED panels boasting 2K resolution and 120Hz refresh rates.
Under the hood, it’s predicted that the OnePlus V Fold will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, complemented by an option of up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. This formidable combination should provide users with a fluid and responsive user experience.
On the photography front, we could potentially expect a three-camera setup on the device’s rear side: a 48MP primary sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 64MP telephoto sensor. The leaked information also indicates a 32MP selfie camera on the outer display and a 20MP front-facing camera on the inner display. This robust camera setup should cater to all types of photographers, from casual to professional.
The OnePlus V Fold may be backed by a substantial 4,800mAh battery, with support for 67W fast charging. Though this might seem like a step down from the OnePlus 11’s 80W fast charging in the US (100W internationally), it should still ensure a rapid energy boost when needed.
Rendered images leaked by SmartPrix have given us a potential sneak peek at what the OnePlus V Fold might look like. The device appears to have an almost bezel-less display and a distinctive, bulging, circular camera island at its center. However, images of the device in its fully closed state remain elusive, keeping us guessing about its complete look.
Design and specs are critical, but software can make or break the user experience. Comparisons drawn between Samsung Z Fold 4 and Google Pixel Fold illustrate this point perfectly. While the OnePlus V Fold is rumored to run on the company’s Android-based OxygenOS, it remains uncertain how well this will perform on a foldable device.
The OnePlus V Fold is expected to feature Hasselblad-branded cameras, following in the footsteps of the OnePlus 11. Other rumored features include an alert slider and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The device is anticipated to be released in August, hot on the heels of Samsung’s expected reveal of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 at its Unpacked event in late July.
