熊猫很禿然, a tipster on Weibo, recently stated that OPPO could be launching a new foldable, codenamed "Peacock" early next month. Peacock reportedly features an 8-in LTPO display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, runs Android 12, and is powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC, the same chip at the heart of Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 3. The tipster went on to claim that Peacock will be succeeded next year by "Butterfly," a next-gen foldable likely powered by the as-yet unannounced Snapdragon 898

The report indicates that Peacock will feature a 4500 mAh battery. This is roughly in line with the Z Fold 3, which struggled to deliver even half the battery life of competing flagship smartphones. 熊猫很禿然 also offered some insight into Peacock's camera arrangement - the foldable will reportedly feature a 50 MP rear camera with the IMX766 sensor and a 32 MP selfie camera.

At this point, we don't have insight into possible pricing. However, if OPPO's able to deliver a great foldable at a lower price point than the likes of the Z Fold 3 - which starts at US$1800 - it could potentially bring foldables out of their ultrapremium niche.
