We used to have a saying around here that, “nothing is official.” It still rings very true, as it’s getting tossed around that what we thought would be the OnePlus V Fold, the first foldable from the good people at OnePlus, will actually go by a different name when it launches later this year.
According to Twitter-based leaker @MaxJmb (Max Jambor), the first foldable from OnePlus will actually go by the name OnePlus Open.
As someone who will have to type the name countless times, I love it. Much better than OnePlus V Fold. In a more cerebral sense, you open foldables, so having it called OnePlus Open seems great. Plus, there’s already a well established Fold line of devices out there, so it’s best not to cause any consumer confusion.
OnePlus was apparently playing around with a few funky names before landing on OnePlus Open, such as OnePlus Wing (Tim’s internal thoughts: awful), OnePlus Prime (eh), OnePlus Peak (nope), and OnePlus Edge (pass).
We expect OnePlus to unveil Open in an official capacity later this year. We hear the specs will be amazing.
