OnePlus Open Is About To Steal A Key Bragging Right From Google's Pixel Fold
While nothing official has been revealed by OnePlus regarding the Open's physical dimensions, it hasn't stopped reliable leaker Arsène Lupin (@MysteryLupin) from tweeting a claim that the much-ballyhooed phone will be the "Thinnest foldable available in NA [North America]". Fighting words, indeed.

"Thinnest foldable available in NA"
Currently, only the Samsung and Google sells foldable devices in North America, so it looks like OnePlus has both brands in its sights. The Pixel Fold leads the way at the moment with 12.1mm thickness when folded and 5.8mm unfolded. Lupin claims the Open will be thinner, so we'll have to wait out a bit longer to see if this true.
One thing's for certain, the OnePlus Open will not be the thinnest foldable ever made—that is record is held by the Honor Magic V2 at 9.9mm folded and 4.7mm unfolded. Another consideration is the fact that the Open is based off of the Oppo Find N3, which has a reported thickness of 12.44mm folded. We are definitely curious to see where OnePlus shaves off some of that depth in the final production Open.
