He also claims that the launch of these smartphones can happen later this year. It could be a successor to the Oppo Find N that the Chinese company launched last year.

Just like Oppo, other companies including its sister company OnePlus have been tipped to be working on foldable phones. Earlier this year, reports suggested that a OnePlus foldable phone, which could look like the Oppo Find N, is in the works.

The launch of the handset, which could be called Google Notepad, has reportedly been delayed twice.

Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is also reportedly in works, and its specifications have been leaked. It is tipped to come equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, an improved rear camera setup over the previous generation phone, and an upgraded under-display camera.
