While Samsung is ready to show off its next-gen foldable devices, including Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 later today, OnePlus wants to grab consumer attention. So, ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event, OnePlus has shared a short teaser showcasing some kind of a dual-screen foldable smartphone.
The Chinese giant took to Instagram to share a short teaser video for its dual-screen smartphone. Although the video is not clear, it shows a dual-screen foldable device standing on a flat surface. You can check out the teaser attached right below.
Surprisingly, the device shows off by OnePlus in the video has a galactic wallpaper, which might be a direct jab at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy foldables. Moreover, the device looks more like a dual-screen smartphone rather than a foldable device.
The device teased by OnePlus looks similar to LG’s take on foldable smartphones. Instead of an actual foldable display, they come with support for an additional add-on display like the LG G8X ThinQ or the LG Velvet. So, if OnePlus is teasing a similar device, then it is not something new that we are going to see.
Furthermore, at the end of the video, OnePlus also shared a date (8.11.21) that points to August 11, 2021. So, we expect the company to show off the dual-screen device later today. That is some pretty neat marketing from OnePlus. But, will we be surprised, or are we in for a disappointment? What do you think about the OnePlus foldable device? Do you think it will be on par with modern foldable devices? Let us know in the comments below.
Unless it’s set for the 8th of November 2021?
Is a thing in the UK and pays of Europe…
Parts, not ‘pays’ ? Pesky keyboard correction…
Hi Sean, the Instagram post comes from OnePlus USA, so it’s safe to assume that it’s 11th August 🙂
