OnePlus has teased what looks to be a new dual-screen device through its US Twitter account. The device is set to be revealed at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy foldables launch tomorrow.

OnePlus is set to crash Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked foldables launch tomorrow with the unveiling of its own ‘foldable’ device. The company has taken to its US Twitter account to post a teaser clip of the device. At first it seems like it might be a true foldable that uses a flexible AMOLED display, however it becomes clear that it isn’t. Instead, it is more akin to the Microsoft Surface Duo with dual-displays but joined by a single ribbon or band.

The device also looks like it could be a dual-screen case accessory like the kind that we’ve seen from LG in recent years. However, it is clear that the device has a power button on the right side and volume rockers on the left side. The slim edges of the device are also clearly visible suggesting that there isn’t any case involved all but ruling out that potential theory.

If the new OnePlus device does follow in the footsteps of the Surface Duo, that device received positive reviews for its multitasking capabilities but failed with its software implementation. Samsung, of course, has made a number of software optimizations for its Galaxy Fold line that have properly leveraged the capabilities of its added screen real estate. OnePlus has also chosen to launch the device at the same time as Samsung is launching its new foldables tomorrow, which is interesting timing to say the least.

Buy the OnePlus 9 Pro unlocked smartphone in Morning Mist from Amazon.

Update: Turns out it was an elaborate marketing ploy to highlight a 50 percent off sale.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
