Now that the release date of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold has been pushed back indefinitely, the stage has been cleared for another Android phone maker to steal the spotlight this spring. OnePlus might end up being the beneficiary, as the announcement of its next big launch event is taking place this Tuesday.

A similarly equipped Galaxy S10+ costs $1,000, and the cheapest iPhone XS Max you [...]
