The tech world is buzzing with excitement as OnePlus prepares to launch its very first foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open. This cutting-edge device is all set to make its grand debut in India on October 19th. In anticipation of its arrival, OnePlus recently treated us to an exclusive video showcasing the key elements of the OnePlus Open, including its primary screen, hinge technology, and powerful construction.
Lightweight, Powerful, and Highly Durable
One of the standout features of the OnePlus Open is its cutting-edge hinge technology, which combines lightweight materials with exceptional durability. In comparison to its predecessor, the OPPO Find N2, the OnePlus Open's hinge employs only 69 components, down from the previous 100, making it more compact and agile. What's particularly remarkable is the hinge's minimal weight, measuring just 13 grams. This lightweight yet resilient design not only enhances its structural integrity but also ensures a smoother folding experience. When compared to other foldable phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Google's Pixel Fold, the OnePlus Open emerges as a strong contender.
Looking at Water-Proofing Abilities
While the OnePlus Open's exact water resistance rating remains undisclosed, the video provided a glimpse of its water resistance capabilities. The phone successfully withstood a series of water-based tests, hinting at the possibility of protection against moisture and liquids. This potential water resistance sets the OnePlus Open apart from its predecessor, the OPPO Find N2, which lacked any official IP rating. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3, both from Samsung, sported an IPX8 rating for water resistance. It's a promising feature for those who seek a device that can handle the occasional splash or drizzle.
Balancing Affordability with Luxury
The OnePlus Open is poised to offer an enticing proposition with an expected price of approximately Rs. 124,990. This pricing strategy positions it as a budget-friendly option in the competitive foldable smartphone market, making innovative technology more accessible to a broader audience. However, this cost-effectiveness doesn't come at the expense of luxury. The OnePlus Open represents a marriage of value and opulence, serving as a flagship offering from the renowned OnePlus brand.
