True, the smartphone turned out to be not cheap

Following the Oppo Find N3, OnePlus’ first foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open, debuted. These devices are not just “brothers” – in fact, they are one model. Only Oppo Find N3 is intended mainly for Asian markets, and the OnePlus Open will be sold in Europe, where the version with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of flash memory costs 1,800 euros. In the UK the same configuration was priced at £1,600.

Those who pre-order will receive OnePlus Buds 2 Pro headphones as a bonus, and students can count on a 10% discount. Those who buy OnePlus Open will be able to purchase the OnePlus Pad tablet with a 10% discount until November 30, and Buds Pro 2, Nord Buds 2, and Buds 2R headphones with a 30% discount.

Considering that OnePlus is just making its debut in the folding smartphone segment with the Open model, it did so very brightly, because the smartphone received top-end screens that surpass in brightness absolutely everything that is in the segment, as well as an advanced Hasselblad camera.

AMOLED screens are made using LTPO 3.0 technology, they support a frame rate of 120 Hz, and maximum brightness reaches 2800 cd/sq.m. That’s a lot. For comparison, the brightness of the internal screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 is only 1750 cd/sq.m.

The thickness of the OnePlus Open when unfolded is 5.8 mm, when folded it is 11.7 mm. The device is thin, but at the same time it is incredibly durable (at least according to OnePlus itself): the body is made of titanium alloy, which is 4 times stronger than surgical stainless steel, and the flexible screen is mounted on a carbon fiber frame. OnePlus says the internal display can withstand 1 million folding and unfolding cycles.

A special feature of the Hasselblad camera is the new 48-megapixel LYTIA-T808 sensor as part of the main module. Its diagonal is 1/1.43 inches, but due to the new technology for placing transistors, light sensitivity should increase noticeably: in terms of light capture capabilities, it is compared with inch sensors. The main module also uses a lens with an EGF of 24 mm and an aperture of F/1.7.

The second module also has a 48-megapixel sensor (but in 1/2-inch optical format), and an ultra-wide-angle lens with 14 mm EGF and autofocus. The third module is the periscope, it has a 64 MP sensor and a stabilized lens with 70 mm EGF and 3x optical zoom. There are two front cameras: a 32-megapixel one on the outer screen, and a 20-megapixel one on the inner screen.

OnePlus Open is built on SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The battery capacity is 4805 mAh, the device supports 67 W charging.
