The electronics OEM OPPO is currently projected to produce a rival for Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold3 that might launch in 2021. Now, a prominent leaker purports to flesh this rumor out with more concrete specs for this putative foldable-display device. Based on these claims, the company is shaping up to lead this emerging market on its first try.

Today (October 13, 2021) is a big day for tech news; however, Digital Chat Station has had no compunction in throwing some potentially equally portentous mobile-device rumor in there for good measure. The typically knowledgeable Weibo account has posted alleged new details on OPPO's inaugural foldable smartphone.

This device might be more of a phablet in truth, as its internal display is now touted to measure 7.8 to 8 inches diagonally. This would suggest OPPO is taking very definite aim at Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold3 or Huawei's Mate X2 with its first-gen flexible-display device.

On that note, the eminent tipster goes on to intimate that the putative device might turn out very like a bendable OnePlus 9RT in terms of specs. In other words, it may be destined for a top-end Snapdragon 888 display, a 50MP IMX766 sensor for a main camera and ColorOS 12.

Then again, the putative OPPO foldable's main 120Hz AMOLED display is apparently to shoot for a 2K resolution, rather than FHD+ as is most usual in 2021. As if to hammer its potential for hypothetical class-leading caliber home, the 'OPPO foldable flagship' is said to have sourced this primary screen from Samsung itself, and also has a secondary display from BOE.
