Oppo has unveiled the world’s first smartphone with a rollable display that expands horizontally. It exhibited the innovative piece of technology at its Inno Day 2020. This is the second year of its big expo and last time we had seen an AR Glass headset and a prototype in-display camera phone. This year, the brand has showcased a sleeker AR Glass headset and the eponymous Oppo X.
Let’s take a look at how this thing works and what are its hardware specifications.
Oppo X 2021: The Rollable Display Tech
By default, it looks like an ordinary smartphone with a 6.7″ display. However, you can pull out the rollable panel which when fully expanded measures 7.4 inches.
Oppo says the X employs a comb-like internal frame that ensures its strength regardless of the form factor (expanded or otherwise). Of course, there’s a motor handling this movement and it’s called “roll motor powertrain”. To secure the sturdiness of the outer screen, the company is using “Warp Track” lamination.
That’s all we know about the device thus far. Oppo has kinda teased its engineering prowess and ambition. But, is yet to share details on its key specs, availability, and price. For now, here, ogle at the hands-on videos divulging it in the daylight —
