Today in the afternoon there will be a presentation of the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. It is logical that not only ordinary users, but also specialists from competing companies will be watching the action. But OnePlus decided to take advantage of the hype around this presentation in its favor or play along with a competitor.
On its Twitter page, the company posted a video showing a foldable smartphone and promised to reveal more details about it on August 11. Visually, one gets the impression that this is not a prototype of a mobile phone with a folding design, but two separate smartphones imitating a folding device. Subdued light and well-chosen dark galaxy wallpapers help to beat the desired effect.
It has been speculated that OnePlus may have created a display case in the manner of LG’s earlier implementation. But it is unlikely that the company would offer such a dubious and expensive accessory. It is also hard to believe that a folding smartphone or an additional accessory was kept in strict secrecy and that not a single leak slipped into the network. Knowing the company’s love for promotional campaigns in anticipation of the release of new products, OnePlus would try to catch up with more excitement around the announcement.
It is possible that everything will be limited only by the promise to release its foldable smartphone in the future. What is really in the plans of OnePlus, it will tell today at 10am ET. By the way, the presentation of Unpacked from Samsung starts at the same time.
