Technology too advanced for Apple

OnePlus is going to have a stab at releasing an expensive folding phone.

For those not in the know, it seems everyone+dog wants to release a folding phone – other than Apple which has put it into the “too hard” basket for now.

German tech site WinFuture claims the OnePlus Open, which is pretty much the Oppo Find N3, will arrive in the US on 19 October and will cost $1700.

The phone looks a bit like a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 than Pixel Fold and is taller than it is wide when you pop it open. It still uses OnePlus’ circular three-camera array. The images show it in two colours: green and black.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip will power the phone, at least according to the rumours and it will arrive with 16GB of RAM, a 7.8-inch display and a 6.31-inch outer screen, both 120Hz OLEDs. Word on the street is that it might have two 48MP cameras (one an ultrawide) and a 64MP telephoto, then a 32MP selfie camera on the outside display and a 20MP camera inside. It could be rounded out with a 67-watt fast-charging 4,800mAh battery.

We expect in a few years Apple will show up and claim to have invented it.
