That’s why we haven’t seen a foldable OnePlus smartphone yet

In the last year, we have seen foldable devices increasingly appearing on the global market. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is now available while the new Moto Razr 2019 and Huawei Mate X are coming. OnePlus is one of the main players in the smartphone market, yet it seems that it has not even thought about its foldable yet.

The Verge interviewed Pete Lau – CEO of OnePlus – about different topics. In no uncertain terms, the number 1 of OnePlus said that according to the company the technology is not yet ready to offer significant advantages with foldable smartphones in comparison to what they cost.

OnePlus is far from betting on foldable smartphones

According to the CEO of OnePlus, the current materials for creating folding displays are not so good. At the same time, it does not offer good display protection such as those used for non-folding devices. Pete Lau was not even convinced of the folding mechanism of the new Moto Razr.

So there was talk of another feature currently considered very important in smartphones. OnePlus will continue to devote particular attention to the development, both hardware and software, of the photographic sector. Pete Lau stressed that he does not believe in the race for the highest number of sensors. He added that having many cameras does not automatically imply a better quality of the shots. OnePlus devotes a lot of resources to cameras software development. They have a team of developers working only on that.

Finally, there was talk about the prices. For Lau, it will be impossible not to follow the market trend. There is a constant increase in smartphone prices, especially for the top range. The company will certainly continue to focus on product quality, without losing sight of the new features that increase the sales numbers. What do you think about the statements of OnePlus CEO?
