OnePlus has just unveiled its latest innovation in the smartphone market with the launch of the OnePlus Open, their very first foldable phone. Packed with cutting-edge features, this device is already making waves among tech enthusiasts. The OnePlus Open boasts a stunning dual ProXDR display, a Hasselblad camera system, and a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. But here’s the exciting part: some users have stumbled upon a hidden gem that OnePlus didn’t even advertise – stylus support.
Social media and online forums are buzzing with reports of the OnePlus Open’s ability to detect and respond to stylus input on both the cover and the main display. Users have been quick to share screenshots and videos showcasing their artistic talents, using Oppo Pen. What’s more, some users claim that the phone even supports pressure sensitivity and palm rejection, taking the stylus experience to a whole new level.
While OnePlus has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of stylus support on the OnePlus Open, speculations are running wild. Some believe that the phone may have inherited this feature from its display supplier, Samsung Display, which is renowned for its foldable OLED panels used in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series. Others speculate that OnePlus may have cleverly added this feature as a forward-thinking move, anticipating the growing demand for stylus compatibility in future foldable phones.
As with any groundbreaking discovery, opinions on the OnePlus Open’s stylus support are divided. Some users and critics applaud OnePlus for surprising them with an unexpected and useful feature. They appreciate the added versatility and creativity that a stylus brings to the foldable phone experience. On the other hand, there are those who criticize OnePlus for not disclosing this feature upfront and for neglecting to provide a dedicated slot or holder for the stylus. Concerns about the durability and reliability of using a stylus on a foldable screen have also been raised, considering the potential risks of scratches and creases.
If you’re already itching to get your hands on the OnePlus Open, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s currently available for pre-order in the US at a price of $1,699. The phone will start shipping on October 26, so mark your calendars. You can choose between two stunning colors, Emerald Dusk and Black, to suit your personal style.
The big question now is whether OnePlus will officially acknowledge and promote the stylus support on the OnePlus Open in the future.
