The star of this year’s OPPO innovation event is now official: OPPO X 2021. It is the first OPPO mobile concept to includes an extendable screen ranging from 6.7 to 7.4 inches.
It is a conceptual mobile that prepares the ground for a new generation of terminals with a screen that changes in size in a different way than folding terminals: rolls on one of its edges with an angle at which, according to OPPO, there is no wrinkle on the screen.
OPPO’s first mobile with an extendable screen
The first mobile with a resizable screen from OPPO it is a reality, with a system similar to the one we have seen on previous occasions in similar concepts, such as the TCL that we knew at the first of the year.
It is not a terminal that we will see in stores soon, but a concept of which we only know a few details, specifically, those that concern its display, OLED, flexible and with a diagonal that varies from 6.7 inches in compact mode to 7.4 inches, when fully deployed.
The OPPO X 2021 uses a motor to move the screen evenly and a system of plates that support the screen without gaps. When compacting the device to switch to the 6.7-inch screen, the 0.7 inches that disappear curl and hide at one of its edges and partially at the rear. This curvature, according to OPPO, allows the OPPO X 2021 to roll up and unroll its screen without producing wrinkles or marks on the screen, as occurs in folding mobiles.
There has also been time to explore – lightly – the possibilities of adaptation of the software to this changing format of screen, and OPPO has shown how the content of the applications can be adapted to the change of size when playing video, in games, in an eBook app and in a split screen application.
The OPPO X 2021 is a conceptual terminal that has been possible thanks to 122 patents, 12 of which are related to its screen. There is therefore no neither price nor date of possible sale, although we hope that its technology can be used in the terminals of the future launched by the company.
