A new leak shows that OPPO could debut its foldable smartphone code-named “Peacock” next month.
OPPO, the Chinese smartphone maker, is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone and will launch it next month under the codename Peacock. OPPO has been developing foldable phones for quite some time now.
While the company has shown off its prototype foldable smartphone, it hasn’t officially released a product that is available on the market.
On China’s Weibo, a leaker revealed that OPPO will debut its foldable smartphone this year, and we may see the device next month.
GizmoChina reports that the upcoming OPPO Fold is expected to feature an inward folding design similar to the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Huawei Mate X2. Under the hood, the device is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform and will feature an 8-inch LTPO OLED screen with a 120W refresh rate.
Several reports state that it will come with ColorOS 12 preinstalled, but it is unclear whether it will feature last year’s Android 11 or the latest Android 12. The upcoming OPPO foldable smartphone is expected to be equipped with a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display, along with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 primary camera on the back. A 4,500mAh battery will be used in the device, along with 65W fast charging capabilities.
OPPO is also preparing to launch its next-generation Reno7 series smartphones along with its foldable handsets.
A second flagship foldable smartphone codenamed “Butterfly” is in the pipeline for OPPO, in addition to “Peacock.” The “Butterfly” handset will be released next year, according to the report.
