OnePlus is gearing up to release a foldable smartphone, and the reliable leaker, Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka OnLeaks), has given us our first look at the "OnePlus V Fold" at Smartprix. As always, this isn't an official image but a render produced by OnLeaks. Usually, these are based on CAD files that need to float around for accessory makers.

OnePlus is a subsidiary of BBK, and the previous vague expectation was that OnePlus would end up shipping a rebrand of an existing BBK foldable, like the Oppo Find N2. OnLeaks' render looks nothing like the nearly square Find N2, though. This device is more in line with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, a foldable in the mold of "two normal smartphone screens next to each other." Smartprix didn't publish exact dimensions, but it looks like a very slim device.

The rear camera bump is a big circle, just like other recent OnePlus phones. It has three cameras on the back, one of which is an optical-zoom periscope lens. The phone makes the curious decision to not put the LED flash in the camera bump, instead sticking it all the way in the upper-left corner of the phone. Isn't the purpose of a camera bump to make room for all that extra bulky camera hardware? I wonder if anything else is in that camera bump.
