OnePlus Could Launch A Foldable Phone 

OnePlus Could Launch A Foldable Phone

Recall that OnePlus attempted to crash Samsung’s foldable phone launch event in August with a teaser of its own ‘foldable’ phone? It later turned out the BBK Electronics-owned company was merely amusing itself with those pictures. However, the company might finally be planning a real foldable phone now.

According to Techradar, the actual launch of such a device or even its possibility remains in the realm of speculations and the only information available now is a patent filing that was submitted in China some time ago.

Techradar reveals that the filing was discovered by LetsGoDigital and it suggests that the Shenzhen-based company could soon add a tri-fold smartphone in its kitty.

Just as the name implies, the device includes a folding mechanism that includes three displays that fold. Parvez Khan, aka Technizo Concept, has made a series of renders based on the patent images to give a clearer look at our perception and tell us what to expect if this filed patent application ever becomes a reality. As is evident, this foldable phone has three display parts and a double hinge, one large and one smaller. The description says the device can be folded in different ways as per use cases. When unfolded, the user gets a large-sized uniformed display. Jamb result

According to Techradar, looking at the renders, the device appears as overkill when unfolded and we cannot foresee any use-case scenario where it could prove its worth. It looks like a large rectangular scale that might not even fit in two hands unless stretched beyond normal. But then, we are more than happy to wait and watch, in the hope that the patent filing would eventually result in an actual product.

The device will be used as a regular handset, though it could be a bit thick around the waist. The device reminds us of some other patented applications from companies like Samsung, where the tri-fold mechanism (not TCL’s Z-shape) when unfolded produced a large tablet-sized form factor. But, this one from OnePlus looks to have a slightly different form factor. It looks more or less like a clamshell design with an extended display.

Techradar reports that the hinges rendered on the OnePlus tri-fold smartphone are also not the same. One is large than the other and could create a wobble when placed on the surface in the fully unfolded position. The tech publication points this out and claims that it is because the housing of the first display part is thicker than the other two parts.
