OnePlus launched its first foldable phone labelled OnePlus Open. Powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, this foldable features 512GB storage and 16GB RAM. The outer display is a 6.31-inch AMOLED with 120Hz refresh rate shielded by Ceramic guard. The main display is 7.82-inch, both the displays have a 2k resolution. The display has 2800 nits peak brightness, 431 ppi and 426 ppi with Dolby Vision support.
In terms of camares, the OnePlus Open introduces Sony’s latest LYT-T808 sensor. With a large 1/1.43-inch sensor and 1.12?m pixel size, it adopts the innovative “Dual-Layer Transistor Pixel” technology. This reimagined pixel structure enhances light absorption and storage within a more compact framework. Unlike traditional arrangements, this architecture separates and layers pixel transistors beneath the photodiodes, resulting in a substantial increase in light capacity, effectively doubling the maximum intake and storage (Full Well Capacity). Hence, the pictures are vivid, sharp, and notably less prone to overexposure.
In addition to the outstanding main camera, it features a specialized 64-megapixel telephoto camera with OIS, providing 3X optical and 6X lossless in-sensor zoom, and an 120X Ultra Res Zoom. This camera’s physical customization is pivotal. Its periscope zoom design and custom d-cut on the lens exterior enable a seamless fit into the slim profile of the OnePlus Open, allowing 23% more light to reach the sensor. Notably, it houses the largest telephoto sensor ever deployed on a foldable, at 1/2-inch, ensuring exceptional telephoto performance even in low-light conditions.
OnePlus also leverages its Hasselblad partnership to enhance the Hasselblad Portrait Mode. This feature shines particularly in low-light environments. The groundbreaking cameras work harmoniously to deliver depth-tracking, bokeh, and flare effects reminiscent of those captured by Hasselblad cameras equipped with XCD 3,5/30, 2,8/65, and 2,5/90V lenses, achieving a level of sophistication akin to DSLR photography.
OnePlus has also tailored the Oxygen OS for Open. OxygenOS 13.2’s new feature: Open Canvas is designed from scratch to elevate daily productivity, it maximizes multi-window efficiency on expansive displays. Remarkably, nearly 95% of mainstream apps seamlessly adapt to the extended screen, eliminating any need for awkward visual adjustments or resizing.
With Open Canvas, the confines of the physical display no longer limit multi-window operations or “split screen” usage. Active windows can be effortlessly stretched and resized to preference, and secondary windows smoothly transition in and out of the physical display, utilizing virtual screen space. This empowers users to effortlessly switch between apps or concentrate on a specific task. Up to four app-windows can coexist on the screen simultaneously, with the option to save up to nine multi-app presets for instant access.
Furthermore, Open Canvas introduces a desktop-like taskbar at the bottom of the expanded main display, granting quick access to recent and preset applications. An unprecedented “Recent” folder feature is unveiled on the OnePlus Open’s taskbar, providing instant access to recent photos, saved images, edited documents, and more. Users can intuitively rearrange these items via a straightforward drag and drop function, seamlessly integrating them into compatible applications like Gmail, Microsoft 365 suite apps including OneNote, or messaging platforms like Google Message, Microsoft Teams, and WhatsApp.
The OnePlus Open comes with 4,805mAh battery and comes with fast 67W SUPERVOOC charging that fully replenishes the battery from 1-100% in just about 42 minutes.
The OnePlus Open is designed to seamlessly support Wi-Fi 7 right out of the box, along with dual 5G cellular connectivity. The OnePlus Open comes in two colours, Voyager Black and Emarald Dusk and retails for Rs. 139,999. There are other additional offers with the phone on pre-order.
