With foldable phones slowly becoming the new craze of mobile phone consumers, OnePlus will have one of its own. The only problem is that the so-called OnePlus Open, the company’s first foldable phone set to be launched by the end of August has allegedly been delayed.
According to tipster, Max Jambor, the OnePlus One that was originally set to be unveiled on Aug. 29 has been reset to another date. Unfortunately, he did not provide details on when the new date for the launch of the OnePlus foldable phone will be.

While the new launch date of the OnePlus One should be known soon, the reason behind the change apparently stems from a screen issue.
Originally, the OnePlus One was set to use BOE panels. But no thanks to issues with it, OnePlus has now reportedly switched and will be turning to Samsung panels instead.
Once confirmed, this means that the OnePlus One will follow the Oppo Find N2 which makes use of two Samsung Display panels. Ironically, researchers at Omdia claim that this was allegedly the basis for the OnePlus Open.
However, it seems unlikely that the Open will be based on the Oppo Find N2. This is because there have been reports that allege that the cover and internal displays of the OnePlus Open will be 6.3 inches and 7.8-inches, respectively, compared to 5.54” and 7.1” on the N2.
Aside from the displays, GSM Arena adds that the OnePlus Open should be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip rather than an 8+ Gen 1.
Once the OnePlus Open is out, the next big launch from the company is expected to be the OnePlus 12 which is projected to come out in December in China. The global launch is anticipated to be in January.
