In the rarefied, near-$2000 air of the ultra-high-end US foldable market, Americans have only ever had two options: the super skinny Samsung Galaxy Fold … or the pudgy, peculiar Google Pixel Fold.

Today, into that obvious “Opening” comes the most compelling device from OnePlus I’ve ever covered: a large-format foldable that rides like a regular phone when it’s closed, with a refreshing take on multitasking when it’s open … and a camera that finally lives up to its colossal casing.

I’m Michael Fisher and I’ve been daily-driving a Galaxy Fold since … well, since the first one! But I think the OnePlus Open may well be my next phone.


This video was produced following three weeks with a OnePlus Open review sample provided by OnePlus. Pre-production sample running pre-release software. The device received one software update during the review process, and was evaluated based upon version CPH2551_13.2.0.9(EX01).

OnePlus hosted a press event in New York City for the OnePlus Open pre-briefing, which included a camera-testing boat excursion during which food and drink were provided.
