OnePlus Open 2 launch reportedly delayed 

  • According to a leak on X, OPPO will not launch the Find N5 foldable smartphone this year. This means that there won’t be a OnePlus Open 2.
  • For context, OnePlus Open launched as the global variant of the OPPO Find N3. With no successor to the Find N3, it’s assumed there won’t be an Open 2 either. 
  • OnePlus phones for global markets including India are usually OPPO phones that are exclusive to China. This strategy was used for the OnePlus Open as well. 
  • Another tipster added to this rumour saying that the OnePlus Open 2 launch is scheduled for 2025, and the foldable will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. This is Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset slated to launch in October this year. 

It looks like the OnePlus Open 2 launch has been delayed to 2025 but with the latest chipset, it might just be worth the wait. OnePlus Open launched with the older Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from 2023. There isn’t anything else that we know about the OnePlus Open 2 so we can only wait for more information on the foldable.
