OnePlus Open Prototype Video
OnePlus, the renowned smartphone manufacturer, has been making waves in the tech world with its upcoming folding-screen phone, officially known as the OnePlus Open. In a recent interview with Lewis Hilsenteger, host of the YouTube channel Unbox Therapy, OnePlus founder Pete Lau shed light on some remarkable features of this innovative device.
One of the standout features of the OnePlus Open is its seamless hinge design. Pete Lau disclosed that OnePlus boasts more than 600 patents related to this hinge mechanism. This hinge, similar to the OPPO Find N2, is designed to provide a seamless folding experience. What’s truly impressive is that OnePlus has managed to make the hinge 37% smaller and with 31 fewer parts compared to its predecessor, the Find N2.
In a captivating video shared during the interview, Lewis Hilsenteger had the opportunity to handle a marketing prototype of the OnePlus Open. Pete Lau challenged Hilsenteger to fold the phone and insert a piece of paper into it. Astonishingly, the device hung effortlessly from that piece of paper, demonstrating the seamlessness and robustness of the hinge mechanism.
The video also gave us a glimpse of the OnePlus Open’s striking design. It features a stunning green glass back cover, with the lens module partially concealed, adding an element of mystery and elegance. The metal bezel is designed with a unique right-angle bias, providing both a sleek appearance and enhanced grip.
OnePlus loyalists will also be delighted to find the traditional ringer slider present on the OnePlus Open. This slider allows users to easily control notification sounds, and vibrations, and switch to mute mode—a feature beloved by OnePlus enthusiasts.
As OnePlus and OPPO converge their efforts under the same corporate umbrella, it’s fascinating to see how they are working together to push the boundaries of smartphone innovation. The OnePlus Open, with its cutting-edge hinge technology and striking design, is undoubtedly a device to watch out for in the ever-evolving world of smartphones. Stay tuned for more updates as OnePlus prepares to launch this remarkable folding-screen phone.
