The first foldable phone from OnePlus, the OnePlus Open, has surfaced in the new set of renders, thanks to @OnLeaks. This is different from the previous renders, and show a wider design, similar to the OPPO Find N2.
This also shows rounded sides, but a flat frame, unlike the curved frame in the OPPO Find N2. The position of the top and bottom speaker have been changed from the previous renders.
It also shows a larger rear camera module that shows three large sensors, including a periscope telephoto camera, and the flash is still present on the left corner, outside the camera cut-out, and the size of it is now bigger.
There is also another sensor, which could be Time-of-Flight (ToF) or LiDAR sensor, below the ‘H’ or Hasselblad branding.
The selfie camera on the inside has been moved from the left to right corner. It still shows an alert slider and a leather-like finish for the back.
