Oppo has a robust R&D department that has proven its mantle over a couple of years. It introduced a rotating camera with Oppo N1 in 2013 and then, it got away with notches by introducing slide-out cameras on Oppo Find X in 2018. At the Oppo INNO Day event, Oppo unveiled a majestic Oppo X 2021 concept phone with a rollable screen that looks pretty dope.
Oppo X 2021 Rollable Concept Phone
Oppo X 2021 has a 6.7-inch display size but guess what, you can roll it to get a larger 7.4-inch display opening new opportunities for both users and developers. Users can roll the display to get a large one depending upon their use case.
According to the reports, Oppo X 2021 sports a 6.7-inch OLED panel. The Chinese smartphone maker developed three proprietary technologies that enable it to achieve this out-of-the-box design. The first is Warp Track high-strength screen laminate which is a part patched just below the display with a thickness of just 0.1mm at its thinnest point. Oppo shunned away from disclosing details on what material they have used in constructing the rollable display but the outer layer is made up of some sort of plastic.
Next up, Oppo X 2021 has a 2-in-1 plate design where a metal frame is fixed and acts as an exoskeleton of the phone. A second frame can slide over the first one allowing the rollable display to expand and extract at will. It uses a third proprietary technology i.e. Twin Motor Powertrain which uses dual motors to extend and retract the display with a distributed force. This squashes the probability of the display developing any creases which are something foldable phones like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X has encountered when they were released.
Unfortunately, Oppo X 2021 which is a promising phone, won’t make it to the market at least as of now. This is a concept phone and just like any other concept from any OEM you pick, it is highly unlikely to become commercially available although some parts of the phone may be used in other Oppo devices in the later run.
