OnePlus Teases Samsung with Foldable Phone Ahead of Galaxy Unpacked Launch Event

- Updated: 11th Aug 2021, 08:03 IST

OnePlus posted a teaser on its official social media channels teasing a foldable phone. What’s more interesting is the fact that it mentions the same date and time as the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event. Although apart from this there is no word on it so far from the brand. The post on the OnePlus US Twitter page shows either a foldable phone or a dual-screen device. However, looking closely you will notice something even more interesting.

It’s not clear whether OnePlus is actually serious here. However, the clue might be in the image of a ‘galaxy’ on both displays. Additionally, the fact that this just looks like two phones held together by a case rather than a hinged display. It looks like this is mostly a way to troll or tease Samsung ahead of their own launch.

Meanwhile, there are no rumours about any new OnePlus smartphone. The 16-second video concluded with “8.11.21“, the date of the Galaxy Unpacked event. The caption to the video read: “8.11 10 am ET”. This is the date and time for Samsung’s event. On the other hand, Twitter is having blast with some either understanding the joke or some taking it seriously. You can look at some funnier reactions to the teaser below:

OnePlus’s strategy to get the attention and at the same time trolling Samsung has brought some nice comments from the users. The chances of OnePlus launching a foldable phone completely out of the blue seem quite slim. Moreover, there are no leaks whatsoever on this also solidifies this as a joke.
