Meet the Oppo X 2021, a rollable smartphone you can't buy8
Rollable smartphones are on the way
Known as the Oppo X 2021 and announced during the INNO Day 2020 event, the concept smartphone in question boasts a retractable OLED display paired with a proprietary Roll Motor powertrain.
The product looks like any other smartphone with a 6.7-inch curved-edge display at first glance. But if you prefer a tablet-like experience, a simple swipe on the side will expand the display to 7.4-inches.
Unlike foldable smartphones which often have creases or dimples on the screen, the Oppo X 2021 boasts a completely flat panel. That’s made possible by the aforementioned powertrain, which generates a constant force.
To ensure everything is fully protected at all times, the Oppo X 2021 includes a 2-in-1 Plate tech that supports the display. There is also a sliding frame that protects the Roll Motor and other internal components.
Because the Oppo X 2021 is a concept smartphone, there are no immediate plans to release it. However, the device will no doubt form the basis of future models that will eventually hit shelves.
