Yes, it works with OpenKeychain. I've personally used Yubikey 4 with
USB-A to USB-C adapter, with USB-A to micro USB adapter, Yubikey 4C and
a Fidesmo card but much more types of tokens are supported [0].

There is an added benefit that the same exact token can be used with
GnuPG and OpenKeychain seamlessly.

Kind regards,
