In the realm of foldable smartphones, 2023 has been quite a whirlwind. We’ve seen Google’s Pixel Fold making waves, Samsung unveiling its latest Fold and Flip iterations, and Motorola finally delivering a solid contender with the Motorola Razr Plus. But lo and behold, the OnePlus Open has just entered the scene, and it’s shaping up to be the standout foldable of the year.
Brilliant Displays: A Visual Feast
Let’s start with what truly sets the OnePlus Open apart – its dazzling displays. It boasts not one but two incredibly bright screens, both cranking up to a whopping 2,800 nits of brightness. To put it into perspective, the Pixel Fold only manages 1,450 nits.
The primary foldable display is a spacious 7.82-inch screen, offering a sharp 2268 x 2440 resolution and an ultra-smooth 120Hz refresh rate. The cover screen is no slouch, with an impressive 1116 x 2484 resolution and a matching 120Hz refresh rate. These screen specs hold their ground and often outshine those of devices like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5.
Capturing Memories in Style: A Camera Marvel
The OnePlus Open takes its camera game up a notch. At the rear, it flaunts a versatile triple-lens setup featuring a 48MP primary sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide lens, and a 64MP telephoto camera that can deliver 3x optical zoom. For your perfect selfies, there’s a 20MP front-facing camera.
A Beast Under the Hood: Stellar Hardware
Beneath the sleek exterior, the OnePlus Open packs a punch with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and a generous 16GB of RAM. This powerhouse duo ensures a snappy and seamless user experience. To keep you going all day, it’s equipped with a 4,805mAh battery, capable of lightning-fast 67W charging. Regrettably, wireless charging isn’t part of the package.
Aesthetic Allure: Design Choices Galore
In the aesthetics department, the OnePlus Open offers a choice of two striking colors – Emerald Dusk and Voyager Black. The latter boasts an elegant vegan leather finish, while the former dons a sophisticated glass back, catering to various styles.
Sleek and Affordable: The Winning Combo
One standout feature of the OnePlus Open is its svelte profile. It’s a mere 5.8mm thick when unfolded, on par with the Pixel Fold. It’s even slimmer at 11.7mm when folded, outshining the Pixel Fold and most other foldable contenders.
But the real game-changer here is the price tag. Priced at $1,699 / £1,599 (unfortunately not available in Australia), you get a generous 512GB of storage. While it’s the sole configuration available, it manages to undercut the starting prices of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Google Pixel Fold, which begin at $1,799 / £1,749 and offer only half the storage for the same price.
The OnePlus Open’s combination of affordability and impressive specs has the tech world buzzing. But to get the full picture, we’ll need a comprehensive review to see if it lives up to all the excitement.
