After three years of essentially just Samsung dominating the foldable market, more brands are expanding the market. According to some new leaks, OnePlus is preparing a new foldable that’s unsurprisingly similar to the Oppo Find N, and a new look at the Vivo X Fold has surfaced.
OnePlus might rebrand the Oppo Find N
A report from 91Mobiles, citing Yogesh Brar, OnePlus is currently developing a foldable smartphone that’s a “copy” of the Oppo Find N, just with different software and destined for international markets. This would, of course, come as absolutely no surprise, given that OnePlus and Oppo are sharing more resources than ever.
If OnePlus is to rebrand the Oppo Find N, it’s certainly good news. Last year when we had a chance to try out the Find N, we were impressed by its hardware, and only a bit put off by its China-focused software. A OnePlus version of the same device still wouldn’t really have our favorite software, but it’d be an improvement nonetheless.
Max J, a reliable tipster for OnePlus details, corroborated that OnePlus is working on a foldable device. However, he says that the device won’t be coming to market anytime soon.
