Foldable phones are now becoming a recurring battleground for the new smartphones to compete in. Oppo, on the other hand, has another idea on how to compete with its competitors as the company has just launched its recent rollable smartphone.
Oppo X 2021 rollable phone
According to the article by TechRadar, as part of the known Inno Day, Oppo's popular annual event actually shows off its brand new technology. The company has finally announced the Oppo X 2021 rollable phone. It is also worth pointing out that the Oppo X 2021 is still a concept device. This means that those interested in this phone still won't be able to buy it. However, this is still notably an interesting snapshot of what the future smartphones' potential might hold.
The known Oppo X 2021 is a "rollable phone" according to the suggestion of Moniker. This phone will start out as a typical "standard" smartphone. However, the Smartphone display can unroll in order to give users the additional screen space if needed. It is said to launch with a particular 6.7-inch OLED display but when the phone is opened, it will then be able to stretch all the way up to 7.4-inches.
Foldable phones: Rollable phones better?
TLC has reportedly shown something quite similar to this Oppo X 2021 smartphone. LG TVs might even soon use this particular technology as well. It is also quite an intriguing take on the popular "foldable" spirit. Oppo points out that this doesn't really have the annoying "cease" that the other foldable phones have located in the very middle of the screen. This is supposed to improve both the durability as well as the feel of the particular phone.
Other features of the particular Oppo X 2021 would also include a back that is said to be designed to look quite similar whether the display is either rolled out or if it remains unrolled. Unrolling the screen reportedly does not open up certain structural issues or even make the smartphone look much worse.
Oppo X 2021 only in China?
Oppo had unveiled the new Oppo X 2021 rollable smartphones timingly alongside its said second-gen pair of the AR glasses which are reportedly only available in China. The announcement was also done at the same time that Oppo detailed a few new tools for its developers to improve its AR. As sort of a tease, an article by Gizmochina releases the specs of this model.
As noted, the Oppo X 2021 is still just a phone concept which means that those interested still won't likely go on sale. It was also stated that if this phone does go on sale, it will most likely just be a China-exclusive phone. This is where Oppo is based and is also where the company sells its tech that seems not to make it to the worldwide market. Although it is said that the particular Oppo X 2021 might not be purchasable, its features might reach other future Oppo smartphones.
