In an interview with The Verge, Pete Lau said that now the shortcomings of models with flexible screens outweigh their benefits. Vendor has examined the production of such gadgets, but decided to wait with their creation – the company does not see a landmark of the advantages of such solutions in front of a classic form factor.

OnePlus has no plans to release a flexible smartphone
Great value, according to the head of OnePlus, have the characteristics of the material – scratch plastic displays is much stronger than glass.
A large number of cameras
The interviews discussed issues and technologies of shooting. Lau said that more cameras doesn’t mean better quality pictures. He admitted that sometimes adding additional sensor can contribute to the improvement of the gadget, but, for example, five cameras – not the technology that provides a decisive advantage.
The producers are investing heavily in the development of the hardware component cameras and image processing algorithms, involving the cooperation of numerous partners.
The increase in the price of smartphones
Asked by reporters about the rising price of smartphones, the head of the company said that these are the trends of the mobile industry. The greater the performance and functionality of the device, the higher its price.
While OnePlus will continue to produce the most effective in its price category of the model, avoiding costly marketing algorithms and schemes of production that involve high costs.
It is expected that the new generation of branded smartphones will include three models: Pro 8 OnePlus, OnePlus and OnePlus 8 8 Lite. Date of announcement and the price of future innovations the manufacturer has yet to be announced.
