CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau recently sat down with The Verge podcast team to discuss his company’s plans with regard foldable phone technology.
Lau noted that the foldable-screen technology still has many shortcomings. “If you look at the fold and the current foldable technology devices, it’s very large and not very clear or a very crisp fold,” he said.
The businessman also added that when the technology is mature and the folding effect is perfected, OnePlus will commit to developing and launching a foldable screen mobile phone, implying that his company does not have plans for foldable devices in the near future.
Pete Lau has previously expressed his interest in foldable phones. In April 2019 he said OnePlus had, “not yet found a way to build a [foldable] device.” At that time, the company’s R&D department was focusing on building the OnePlus TV, according to Lau.
