OnePlus to launch its first foldable phone in H2 2023

OnePlus has confirmed the launch of its first foldable smartphone in the second half of 2023. It was announced during the “From Fast & Smooth to Beyond” panel discussion at Mobile World Congress 2023.

At the OnePlus 11 global launch earlier this month, the company said something phenomenal was coming in Q3 2023 and also released a teaser that hinted at a foldable device.

OnePlus didn’t reveal the specs but said it will have flagship specs. The company recently filed a trademark on the OnePlus V Fold and V Flip names with China’s National Intellectual Property Administration, so the company may also launch a Flip phone.

OnePlus also shared its plan to build a stronger smart ecosystem over the next 3 to 5 years to bring its signature fast and smooth experience to broader categories.

The creation of this ecosystem will enable OnePlus to provide seamless connectivity between OnePlus devices such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, TVs and other IoT devices.

OnePlus will reveal more details about the foldable device in the coming months.

Regarding the foldable phone, Kinder Liu, president and COO of OnePlus, said at the event:

Our first foldable phone will have OnePlus’ signature fast and smooth controls. It has to be a flagship phone that doesn’t settle due to its foldable shape in terms of industrial design, mechanical technology and other aspects. We want to launch a device that aims to be the leader in today’s folding device market.
