A couple of days ago, OnePlus posted a short video on its Twitter page where, using two smartphones, it created the illusion of a foldable device. It promised to reveal more details on August 11 at the same time as the launch of the presentation of the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
A number of publications have suggested that OnePlus wants to show or talk about its foldable mobile phone. But it turned out that what the company had in mind had nothing to do with the folding device. In this way, it just wanted to inform about a price cut of the OnePlus 9 in the United States. And the illusion of a foldable smartphone was only created in order to convey to users the idea that they can get two flagships from OnePlus for the price of one foldable Galaxy Fold. In any case, the goal of attracting the attention of a wide audience by the company’s advertisers has been achieved.
The price has been reduced to $ 375 only for US residents and those who purchase the new product from the mobile operator T-Mobile. The pricing itself looks very nice and is a great deal for a smartphone with Snapdragon 888, 6.55-inch AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and triple rear camera 50MP + 48MP + 2MP.
