The OnePlus Open 2 might not happen this year

 

A lot of modern day foldable smartphones tend to feel quite similar to one another. But when we reviewed the OnePlus Open, we were actually pleasantly surprised at what a great experience it was. We weren't alone in our sentiment, which is why if you're excited for the OnePlus Open 2, we might have some bad news for you.

 

According to a post on X by Kartikey Singh, it seems that the OnePlus Open 2 might not launch this year. The original OnePlus Open launched in the later part of 2023. Most companies refresh their phones on an annual basis. it's not a stretch to think that the company could launch the OnePlus Open 2 this year.

 

 

However, the post claims that it might skip 2024 and launch in 2025 instead. A follow up reply by Chun Bhai "confirms" the delay. The post adds that the the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could power the handset. It is a bit disappointing that we won't see the OnePlus Open 2 this year, but at the same time, we don't really mind it.

 

OnePlus certainly took their time before hopping on board the foldable bandwagon. If they have to "delay" the launch of its second model to further improve it or add more features, we're all for it. It is also quite a risky move. Samsung will be launching their new foldables this year, so OnePlus will have to compete with those devices as well.


Possible OnePlus 13 render leaked

 

The OnePlus 12 was announced back in December 2023. This means that a successor will most likely come towards the later part of the year. While it might still be early, it seems that a possible render of the OnePlus 13 has leaked online. This is according to a post on Weibo by user "fixed focus digital".

 

Assuming the render is the real deal, it shows a somewhat plain-looking design on the back of the phone. It's all silver with a square camera module featuring a triple camera setup and a flash unit. It's interesting because past OnePlus designs have opted for a circle camera module.

This is why not everyone is convinced this is the real deal. Reliable tipster Yogesh Brar shared on X that the OnePlus 13 will continue to use the same circular camera cutout as its predecessors. It will be more centrally focused, similar to the Oppo Find X7. This is a slight change from the OnePlus 12 whose cameras were placed towards the side of the phone.

 

It's hard to say who's right. We're only in May and the OnePlus 13 won't be coming anytime soon, so it might be too soon to tell. Either way, it's probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now until we get more details.


OnePlus could be hopping on board the flip phone bandwagon

 

Last year, OnePlus finally got on board with foldables with the launch of the OnePlus Open. But it looks like the company could be exploring other form factors. A post on Weibo by tipster Smart Pikachu claims that OnePlus could be looking to launch a flip foldable phone as well.

 

In a way it's not surprising. Many companies who have foldables usually have two form factors. One would be the phone-tablet hybrid, and the other is a flip model that transforms a smartphone into an even smaller device. Generally speaking, flip phones tend to be more popular as they are more affordable.

 

Plus, not everyone necessarily needs a tablet, so having a smartphone that can be folded down to become even smaller is actually appreciated. That being said, we're not sure if this will be a 100% original design. The OnePlus Open is basically a rebadged version of the Oppo Find N3. Both companies are under the same parent company so it's not surprising they share tech.

 

If OnePlus launches a flip phone, it could be based on an existing model like the Oppo Find N3 Flip. Either way, we'll have to wait and see if these plans ever come to fruition. But what do you think? Is a OnePlus flip phone something you might be interested in?


OnePlus Nord CE4 teaser reveals important battery improvement

 

OnePlus Nord CE4 is just a few days away, so all the more reason for the Chinese company to come with a couple of more teaser highlighting some of the phone's key specs. After its phone's full specs list, price and design have been leaked earlier this week, OnePlus is now adding a few pieces to the puzzle by revealing new details or confirming some of the leaked information.

 

For instance, we already know the OnePlus Nord CE4 will be powered by a large 5,500 mAh battery, a welcome improvement over the Nord CE3's 5,000 mAh battery. What we didn't know is the battery comes with support for 100W fast wired charging, which is yet another important improvement over the Nord CE3's battery that supports 80W fast wired charging.

 

The information was revealed over the weekend by Amazon India, which seems to have jumped the gun a little bit and went live with a dedicated website for the OnePlus Nord CE4 before its official announcement (via GSMArena).

 

The website is no longer accessible (at least at the time of writing), but the screenshot stands as evidence that the OnePlus Nord CE4's battery does feature support for 100W fast wired charging.

 

OnePlus has already confirmed that the Nord CE4 will be introduced in India on April 1. The phone will be available for purchase for as low as Rs 24,999 ($300) and it will be offered in two colors: Celadon Marble and Dark Chrome.


OnePlus Nord CE4 design, specs and price leak ahead of April launch

 

OnePlus is gearing up for another important product launch, the Nord CE4. The phone is expected to be officially introduced in India on April 1, but the OnePlus Nord CE4 will be available for purchase in many other countries.

 

For now, we only have information about the phone's price in India, but it shouldn't be too different in other regions. Apparently, the cheapest OnePlus Nord CE4 (8/128GB) costs Rs 24,999 ($300), while the expensive model (8/256GB) is priced to sell for Rs 26,999 ($325) (via Abhishek Yadav).

 

Also, thanks to reliable leaker Ishan Agarwal, we now know what the phone looks like. A couple of official-looking renders show the OnePlus Nord CE4 from all angles, thus leaving nothing to the imagination.

Along with these pictures, Ishan also leaked the phone's key specs. For instance, the Nord CE4 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 processor. The phone is said to sport a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a large 5,500 mAh battery with 100W fast charging support.

 

As far as the camera goes, the Nord CE4 is supposed to feature a dual camera setup that consists of a 50-megapixel main sensor (Sony LYT-600) and an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera (Sony IMX355). The phone should also have a secondary 16-megapixel camera in the front for selfies.

 

Finally, the specs sheet mentions that the Nord CE4 comes with hybrid dual SIM slot, allowing users to expand storage up to 1TB via microSD card.
