OnePlus has confirmed that its first ever foldable Android device will also be its first smartphone to use a Sony LYTIA camera sensor. It is touted to have a cutting-edge double-stacked structure and to be tuned by Hasselblad for "exceptional imaging". The brand-first main shooter is also tipped to be joined by a new zoom lens also thought to feature in the successor to the conventional flagship OnePlus 11.

OnePlus India has hyped the Open launch event by confirming that the smartphone will come with an official Hasselblad logo for its (reportedly massive) camera hump. The brand has also announced that the foldable will start a "Camera Revolution" with the brand's first ever Sony LYTIA sensor. 

This new CMOS might be thus introduced as the LYTIA LYT800 (or LYT808 to be exact, according to Digital Chat Station) with a resolution of 48MP and Sony's latest "double-layer transistor" design for image sensors. OnePlus' new Open sample photo reveals other specs such as a large-ish aperture of f/2.2 and the ability to capture dramatically shadowed scenery at an ISO of 100.

Furthermore, the Open is now backed to pre-empt the upcoming non-foldable flagship 12 by also being the first OnePlus device to boast the new and supposedly trend-setting 64MP periscope lens. Digital Chat Station also now asserts that it is capable of "6X lossless zoom" as well as 3X optical zoom in the upcoming premium foldable device.

The famous leaker also now endorses leaks pointing to a 2,800-nit screen brightness and up to 100W charging in the OnePlus Open - however, the prospect of wireless charging apparently remains exclusive to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered 12.
