One of the main complaints regarding the OnePlus Open was the lack of stylus support. Well, it turns out that the device supports a stylus after all! This information has been revealed by Rashed341 (a Reddit user), and reshared by Mishaal Rahman.
The OnePlus Open does support a stylus… kind of
This is rather weird, as OnePlus mentioned, during the briefing, that the phone does not support a stylus. The OPPO Find N3 does support a stylus, and there’s also a ‘Stylus’ page in the settings on the OnePlus Open.
That, of course, seemed weird, so Rashed341 decided to test it. In an X post shown below, you can see a stylus in action. OnePlus is not selling a stylus for the OnePlus Open, so perhaps that’s why the company said it doesn’t support it.
If, however, you can grab a stylus from the OPPO Find N2, the OPPO Pen, you can pair it with the OnePlus Open, The OnePlus Stylo from the ONePlus Pad won’t work, though, as it doesn’t have a button for pairing.
Be careful, though, we’re not sure if using a stylus is smart considering that OnePlus didn’t approve it
One thing to note here, is that you may damage the main display over time, with a stylus. We cannot confirm nor deny that, but just keep in mind there’s a chance. Perhaps there is a reason why OnePlus didn’t mention anything about a stylus. That Stylus page is rather weird, though. On the other hand, perhaps the company plans to release a stylus later on.
Either way, if you really want to use a stylus on the OnePlus Open, and we can see why you would, grabbing the OPPO Pen is the way to go. Chances are you’ll have to import it if you live in the US, though, as it’s not being sold anywhere within the states.
