Samsung may have cornered the foldable phone market with its unique Z Series lineup, but it’s officially got some competition. Google’s new Pixel Fold earned a spot on our list of the best foldables for 2023, and now a smaller brand is throwing its hat in the ring as well. Preorders for the new OnePlus Open officially went live last week, and the device has already sold out at the few places it was available — including OnePlus directly. So while they’re aren’t any savings to be had quite yet, the sleek new phone officially hits shelves on Oct. 26, and we’re expecting to find it available at plenty of new carriers and retailers — along with a handful of new deals to help you get your hands on one for less. Check back later this week for our full roundup of the best places to find the new OnePlus Open in stock and on sale. 

The OnePlus Open comes equipped with the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor as its flagship OnePlus 11, but also boasts a blistering 16GB of RAM and a substantial 512GB of storage. Its 7.8-inch 2K AMOLED internal display is larger than both the Google Pixel Fold and the Samsung Z Fold 5, and the Open is still thinner overall.
