The leak of a foldable Oppo presents a fascinating alternative to the Galaxy Z Fold 3

Tech Highlights:

  • Other notable specs mentioned by the leaker include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and Color OS 12 atop Android 11. Check out the machine-translated post below. Digital Chat Station noted in the comments that the device’s proportions are similar to the Huawei Mate X2, suggesting that we’ve got a Galaxy Fold-like form factor rather than a clamshell Z Flip design.

  • Earlier this year, Oppo unveiled a prototype rollable phone, demonstrating an intriguing alternative to foldable phones. However, prior speculations suggest that the business is also working on a foldable device, and it appears that more information has slipped online. Digital Chat Station, a well-known Weibo leaker, has released some alleged specifications for an Oppo foldable phone. The smartphone sports a 7.8-inch to 8-inch 120Hz foldable display (with QHD resolution), a Snapdragon 888 SoC, a 50MP IMX766 primary camera, and a 32MP selfie camera, according to the tipster.

The claimed foldable screen size could mean a bigger display than the Galaxy Z Fold 3‘s 7.6-inch panel if we’re assuming a similar aspect ratio. That 50MP IMX766 camera sensor would also be flagship-level on paper, with the likes of the Oppo Find X3 Pro using it to great effect. This sensor opens the door for 8K video recording too, which is missing on Samsung’s foldable. There’s obviously no official word on a launch date or availability, but previous rumors pointed to a 2022 launch. So we could be in for a significant wait before seeing the device for the first time.
