The elusive OPPO Find N could arrive globally as a OnePlus foldable

OnePlus is set to join the big leagues with the launch of its first foldable phone this year. Supposedly, this foldable will be based on the OPPO Find N, a China-exclusive device that launched to a very positive reception months ago.

As OnePlus continues its campaign to expand its portfolio, it appears the next step is an obvious one—foldables. According to a new report, OnePlus is gearing up to release its first foldable phone later this year.

Reportedly, the upcoming foldable phone will be either based on, or a copy of, the OPPO Find N that debuted last year. OnePlus is owned by OPPO and has fully integrated with its parent company, so that shouldn’t be a surprise. The company has already launched multiple devices identical to OPPO or Realme—another OPPO-owned brand—products. The upcoming OnePlus 10R and OnePlus Ace look to be rebadges of the Realme GT Neo 3, for example.

Launching an OPPO Find N rebadge would be a welcome development to most foldable enthusiasts, as the Find N is widely recognized as one of the best foldable devices on the market, thanks to its excellent design and almost creaseless implementation. As a plus, the OPPO Find N also performed excellently in JerryRigEverything’s durability test earlier in the year. Sadly, though, the Find N remains exclusive to OPPO’s home market of China. This OnePlus foldable would essentially be a smart business decision by OPPO to bring a first-gen product to the global market with the badge of a Western brand.

As it stands, exact launch plans—as well as any hardware differences versus the OPPO Find N—for the OnePlus foldable phone remain unknown. We’ll keep you updated, however.
