That’s so far as particulars go, by way of what the leakster has shared. However total, this more than likely implies that the OnePlus Open, or V Fold, will more than likely miss the rumoured August launch window. It is going to additionally in all probability miss the third quarter window as effectively, if the change in display screen provider is a current one. Much less sure is that if the telephone will nonetheless be capable to make it into the market throughout the yr.
General, this may in all probability be a worthy delay. If the corporate will not be proud of the screens that it’s presently getting for the OnePlus Open, then altering to a different one would in all probability imply much less points for purchasers down the road. That’s after all assuming the following bunch of shows don’t run into different problems with their very own.
