OnePlus is preparing to launch its first foldable smartphone this year. A previous confirmation revealed the phone will be launched in 2023. According to a latest press release, a tipster by the name of Max Jambhor claims the company will unveil its foldable in the month of August. He made this known on his Twitter page. But the manufacturer has not offered information regarding the release date of the new foldable device.
That could come after the launch of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, the Z Fold 5, and the Google Pixel Fold smartphones.
Rumors also claim that OnePlus will name the new foldable device OnePlus V Fold. For now, that remains as it is; a rumor. However, there are indications that the name of the phone has already been sent for a trademark application in China. Apart from being a foldable, the smartphone will also be available in a flip version.

There are reports that OnePlus foldable will be a rebadged version of Oppo Find N2. The N2 smartphone has gone official in China already. The assumption could result from the 2022 merger between Oppo and OnePlus. This means that if the new foldable is a rebadged version, it may bear some similarities in spec to the Oppo Find N2.
