The tech community is abuzz with anticipation for OnePlus's inaugural foldable phone. Initially revealed to launch in the third quarter of this year, the device has been christened the "OnePlus Open." Unfortunately, a change in the display panel supplier caused an unforeseen delay in its debut, which was initially slated for the preceding month.
According to insider Max Jambor, the OnePlus Open is now earmarked for release on October 19, a Thursday. Nonetheless, OnePlus has remained tight-lipped, not confirming this rumored date. If the speculations are accurate, it means OnePlus will miss their previously announced third-quarter launch window. It is believed that official announcements will emerge in the upcoming weeks.
