Title: OnePlus Open: The Newest Competitor to Challenge Google’s Claim of Thinnest Foldable
The race to create the thinnest foldable phone is heating up, as Google’s claim of having the “thinnest foldable of all” might soon be challenged by the upcoming OnePlus Open foldable phone. Marketed as the “Thinnest foldable available in North America,” the OnePlus Open is set to give tough competition to its rivals.
Google’s Pixel Fold, touted as the frontrunner, measures 12.1mm thick when folded and 5.8mm when unfolded. However, the OnePlus Open claims to surpass it in terms of slimness. While specific measurements for the OnePlus Open remain undisclosed, its marketing campaign promises a foldable that will be even thinner than the Pixel Fold.
Not only will the OnePlus Open potentially outshine Google’s offering, but it will also give the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 a run for its money. With measurements of 13.4mm when folded and 6.1mm when unfolded, the Galaxy Fold 5 falls behind in terms of sheer thinness. However, it is worth noting that in some markets, the Honor Magic V2 currently holds the title of the thinnest foldable, featuring a folded thickness of 10.1mm and a mere 4.8mm when unfolded (glass version).
Apart from a sleek design, the OnePlus Open offers impressive specifications. It will be available in two striking color options: Voyager Black and Emerald Dusk (Green). Additionally, the device boasts an impressive 16GB of RAM and 512GB of flash storage, ensuring a seamless user experience.
The OnePlus Open also excels in terms of its camera capabilities. It features a periscope lens with 6x optical zoom and optical image stabilization, providing users with exceptional photographic capabilities in a foldable device.
Battery life is often a concern for foldable phones, but the OnePlus Open addresses this issue by incorporating the largest battery ever seen in a foldable device. Furthermore, it supports 67W fast charging, allowing users to top up their device quickly and conveniently.
In terms of pricing, the OnePlus Open aims to be competitive. With a price tag of $1,699, it slightly undercuts both the Pixel Fold and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, making it an attractive option for consumers seeking a premium, yet affordable, foldable phone.
Excitement is building as the unveiling of both the Pixel Fold and OnePlus Open is scheduled for October 19th, with pre-orders commencing on the same day. Tech enthusiasts eagerly await the release of these devices to witness the evolution of foldable technology and discover who will claim the title of the thinnest foldable phone in the market.
As the battle for the thinnest foldable phone intensifies, consumers can anticipate a wave of innovation and competition in the foldable device segment, ultimately leading to greater options and improved features for users seeking the ultimate smartphone experience.
