The OnePlus Open was released last year and received very positive reviews. However, according to a tipster named @That_Kartikey on X (formerly Twitter), its successor won’t be released this year. According to the poster, Oppo does not plan to release a new Find N in 2024. Therefore, we shouldn’t expect a next-generation OnePlus Open this year, either.

This news was confirmed by reliable tech rumor source @chunvn8888, who said the release of both handsets is expected in 2025. The devices will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip, which is unlikely to be available for device manufacturers until early next year.

In 2023, OnePlus and Oppo released the OnePlus Open and Oppo Find N3. These book-style foldable devices were the same, with the former being the international version and the other made for the Chinese market.

It’s worth mentioning that there is no definite way to verify this news. And considering that the OnePlus Open was initially released in October last year, there is still ample time for both the OnePlus Open 2 and Oppo Find N5 to be launched before 2025.

In our original review of the OnePlus Open, we mentioned that the device’s hinge was not firm enough and the camera bump was slightly too large. We also expressed doubts about the quality of the macro and 120X Super Res cameras. It is possible that OnePlus will work on improving all three aspects in the next version of the device over the coming months. Despite these concerns, the OnePlus Open remains one of the best foldable phones on the market.

In the meantime, we are still awaiting the debut of another foldable phone. The Google Pixel Fold 2 may be announced this week at Google I/O, or Google may decide to wait and release it later in the year. We’re also expecting Samsung to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 this summer.

There are plenty of foldables to look forward to, but if it’s the OnePlus Open 2 that’s at the top of your wish list, it sounds like you could be waiting a lot longer than you may have thought.

The main workout screen on the Google Pixel Watch 2.

It's no secret that we weren't fans of the first Google Pixel Watch. However, Google heard all the criticism of its smartwatch debut and made amends, coming back with the Google Pixel Watch 2. Its second attempt was much better, adding strong performance, exceptional comfort, and a solid battery life to the fitness tracking of Fitbit. While it still has some issues, it's now a product we can recommend buying.

But just because it's now good doesn't mean there aren't alternatives to be had. There are a number of smartwatches that are better suited for those looking for a longer battery life, a focus on fitness, or a simpler experience. Some are just flat-out better. If you're considering buying a Google smartwatch, you need to know about these five smartwatches you should buy instead of the Google Pixel Watch 2.

OnePlus is still quite new to me, as I was a lifelong iPhone user until I joined Digital Trends. However, OnePlus has a pretty solid reputation in the mobile world, and now I can see why, as the OnePlus 12 is one of my favorite smartphones that I’ve used so far this year.

But the OnePlus 12 isn’t the only phone that OnePlus launched in 2024. There is also the more affordable value option, the OnePlus 12R, which even comes in a cool Genshin Impact Edition.

OnePlus surprises us with dazzling Android tablet and smartwatch
A press image of the OnePlus Watch 2 Nordic Blue edition.

OnePlus has launched a new Android tablet and a desirable special edition of the OnePlus Watch 2, both in beautiful color schemes that make us want them both right now. Unfortunately, that won't be easy if you live in the U.S.. The company has announced the OnePlus Pad Go tablet and OnePlus Watch 2 Nordic Blue edition smartwatch at an event in Helsinki, Finland, and both are currently only destined for a European release.

If you recognize the OnePlus Pad Go's name , it’s because the tablet was released in India last year, and it comes in the same stunning Twin Mint color scheme, which is as trendy as it gets. Although the company hasn't been forthcoming with all the details about the tablet, the specifications are unlikely to have changed from the model released in India. It has an 11.3-inch screen with a 2.4K (that’s 2408 x 1720 pixels) resolution, which it claims is currently the highest available on an Android tablet, and a 90Hz refresh rate.
