Today, a famous Weibo blogger said that the sales of OPPO Find N released at the end of last year exceeded expectations. Apart from this foldable phone, for this year, the company has also planned to design and launch another handset with such a form factor. Well, it’s not going to be a “traditional” foldable smartphone but a flappable handset. Thus, it will look like the Motorola Razr V and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Lastly, OPPO ought to also release a horizontally folding large-screen smartphone. Both models will be flagship handsets powered by powerful hardware.
Not only that, but the blogger also revealed that OPPO is developing a scroll-screen mobile phone. The latter will be a premium model, the price of which will hit 10,000 yuan ($1583).
OPPO X 2021
By the way, OPPO has demonstrated the OPPO scroll screen concept phone before at the 2020 OPPO Future Technology Conference. It’s called the OPPO X 2021. The screen of the machine can be stretched out like a picture scroll. When it is not unfolded, the OPPO X 2021 has no difference from an ordinary mobile phone. The screen size is 6.7 inches, and by gently sliding the right side of the screen, it can reach 7.4 inches when unfolded. The screen ratio has reached 4:3. So it is capable of providing better a visual experience.
In comparison to the current foldable phones and the concept behind them, the scroll screen can achieve a step-less adjustment between the minimum and maximum size. Thus, such handsets will bring more possibilities for productivity, entertainment, and daily use. For instance, you can enjoy the experience of a large screen when watching movies and reading. Another example, when playing games, you can display message dialogues in the expanded area.
Obviously, phones from this range will come with a number of innovations. We mean, to launch the OPPO X 2021, the company ought to focus on developing a new set of technologies, especially the structure of the reel. We know that OPPO structural engineers have developed a ‘Roll Motor’ power scheme. The latter can output constant force through two built-in drive motors. The power is used to expand and retract the screen. So the screen is evenly stressed during the movement, and can effectively prevent the screen from damage when suddenly stressed.
If this news is true, it means that OPPO will mass-produce the OPPO X 2021 for commercial use soon.
