OPPO continues to experiment with foldable form factors. Recently, the manufacturer showed a prototype of the stretched OPPO X 2021, and is now showing a “slide background”.
What it is
This is a concept of a folding device that exists only on paper so far. It was created together with a Japanese woman design studio Nendo. The gadget received three parts. Unlike the Xiaomi and TCL concepts, the OPPO smartphone has no gaps when folded.
When unfolding the first part of the device, a 1.5-inch screen appears. It is needed for notifications and calls. When the second is opened, the screen appears already at 3.15 inches. He, according to the manufacturer, is useful for shooting photos and videos.
If you expand the third part, then the gadget gets a 7 inch narrow bezel for gaming and multitasking. The concept has a built-in stylus and a main camera with several modules. When folded, it can be used for selfies.
When to expect
Naturally, OPPO has not announced any timing for the release of such a “slide background”, but according to the Ice universe insider, such devices will not appear on the market until 2022.
I don’t want OPPO to become a company that hype concept. All the concept phones it shows will not be realized before 2022. I hope it will release an OPPO Fold first and break its own 0 record to be more realistic. pic.twitter.com/ZXuyIzz0hl
