The Mobile World Congress (MWC) will be held in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 to March 3 this year. Like CES in January, MWC is a venue for mobile phone brands to showcase innovative products. While OnePlus has yet to confirm that it will be attending MWC, leaker Max Jambor reveals some details about the company’s plans. According to Jambor, OnePlus will release a concept phone at the upcoming MWC 2023. The report claims that the new phone will be called the OnePlus Concept Two. However, details about the device are still scarce at the moment. But since it is a concept product, it is expected that the device will include some breakthrough techs and industry-first features.
OnePlus showed off the OnePlus Concept One at CES three years ago. This device was developed in cooperation with the car brand, McLaren and was the first to apply electrochromic tech that is generally applied to the glass of aeroplanes and sports cars. Applied to mobile phones, the “hidden rear camera” came into being. The transition time of the entire rear camera part from opaque to transparent is about 0.7 seconds. This is also the most “conceptual” part of the whole phone. In terms of appearance, the entire mobile phone is covered by the leather used in McLaren supercars, which looks very cool. Like most concept phones, the OnePlus Concept One never hit the market.
After three years, what innovative techs OnePlus Concept Two will bring is worth looking forward to. However, never expect the concept phone to launch in the market. It will only show possibilities but will not be released.
OnePlus keyboard will be launched in India on February 7
According to reports, the OnePlus 11 will launch in India on February 7, after the device was launched in China earlier this month. Beyond that, the company is also working on a keyboard, dubbed the OnePlus Keyboard. Now, 91mobiles has learned exclusively from a tip-off that the OnePlus keyboard will also be launched in India on February 7. In addition, a new image of the device shows the design details of the keyboard.
Gizchina News of the week
OnePlus’s official website has a page specially created for the keyboard. This confirms that the product is currently in the testing phase and will be launched in February. This device will also enter mass production in March this year. While the keyboard will debut in India, it is also possible that OnePlus will bring it to global markets. However, there is no official information regarding the markets it will launch.
OnePlus Keyboard design
The OnePlus new Keyboard comes in an all-white design. The images also reveal that this keyboard will have regular keys like the function keys, backspace, Del, page up and page down, and a red button, which is said to be a rotary encoder knob. The OnePlus website claims that the keyboard will feature a “dual spacer mount design” and a custom layout and profile.
OnePlus says the spacer design ensures a precisely calibrated yet soft percussion paired with a satisfying sound. While the keyboard isn’t silent, audible sounds are said to be “suppressed while retaining a superior typing experience.”
The OnePlus keyboard is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux, and this keyboard will use Keychron’s key switches and keycaps. OnePlus will provide hot-swappable keycaps with multiple colour options at the time of release. In addition, the report claims that the new keyboard will also support RGB lighting effects which will make it good for gaming. At the moment, there is no specific official information about the price of this device. The company will reveal more information about this new keyboard in the coming weeks.
