OnePlus CEO isn't interested in building foldable smartphones and here is why

14 April 2019 3

While foldable smartphones are the new trend in the global smartphone market with every major contender is rushing to build their very own versions of foldable smartphones. Seems like 2019 and 2020 would be the year where we’d see a lot of prototypes and work done in this regard but there OnePlus doesn’t seem to be interested in this game as of yet.

OnePlus’s CEO Pete Lau shared in talking with students at European Institute of Design in Milan regarding the future of the company and his thoughts. He shared how foldable smartphone technology isn’t yet ready for their prime time. He believes that foldable displays have a lot of potentials though that doesn’t make much of a different currency in the phones yet, apart from doing pretty much the same thing.

The fast-rising Chinese smartphone manufacturer aims to be focusing on building a TV with a smart display. He shared how remote control mechanism is outdated and there should be a way where TVs should know your preferences and set things accordingly for you in advance, which seems more of an AI assistant for TVs may be?

Likewise, other avenues that OnePlus is exploring is automotive business, working on 5G technology and more. Did you ever own a OnePlus device before? Share your experience in the comment section below.
