OnePlus has confirmed that it will launch a foldable smartphone later this year. It was revealed at the company’s “From Fast & Smooth to Beyond” panel event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today.
OnePlus president and COO, Kinder Liu, says it will be a “flagship phone” that will compete against the best in the business. It will feature powerful hardware and software, combined with the signature OnePlus fast and smooth experience.
OnePlus Confirms It Will Launch a Foldable Phone Later This Year
OnePlus has confirmed that it will launch its first foldable smartphone later this year. It has been teasing the device since a panel at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, but the company didn’t have much to say about it at that time.
However, OnePlus President and COO Kinder Liu has revealed that the company’s foldable phone will be launched in Q3 2023. The smartphone will be designed to provide the same OnePlus experience that we all know and love, but in a foldable form factor.
The battle for foldables is heating up, with a number of devices on the market. There are also the upcoming global release of the Honor Magic Vs, as well as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.
In order to stand out from the competition, OnePlus will need to do something interesting with its foldable. That could include a design, a performance boost, or even a competitive pricing structure.

Speaking at a panel discussion at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2023) in Barcelona, Liu said that OnePlus will bring the signature OnePlus fast and smooth experience to the foldable phone market.
While he didn’t mention the exact device it will be based on, it sounds like it will likely look a lot like the Oppo Find N2 Flip. It’s a tablet-style foldable, and while it hasn’t been available in the Western markets yet, Oppo says it doesn’t plan to.
OnePlus also revealed at the show that it will be building a more cohesive smart ecosystem in the next 3-5 years, which will allow it to provide a seamless connection between its smartphones, tablets, wearables and TVs. OnePlus also shared that it is working with Qualcomm and Google on this initiative.

Global technology brand OnePlus announced that it will be launching its first foldable smartphone later this year. Its President and COO Kinder Liu said that the device will offer the signature “OnePlus fast and smooth” experience.
In addition, he noted that the phone will have flagship specs and extended software support, like OnePlus’s recently-launched OnePlus 11 5G. The phone will also have an incredibly high-quality display, and will feature hardware accelerated ray tracing capabilities for real-time light effects.
The OnePlus 11 Concept phone also showcases Active CryoFlux, a game-changing liquid cooling system that reduces temperature by up to 2.1 degrees. This helps improve frame rate by 3-4 fps while gaming.
