Today we are going to take a look at the world’s first rollable concept phone: Oppo X 2021. In this artical, I’ll explain how this thing rolls and what’s the possible future we can see from it, Alright, so this is the OPPO X 2021 rollable phone, it may look just like another normal phone at first glance, but once you slideup around the fingerprint area.
the screen extends! Just like a scroll painting, the phone slowly transforms from a regular 6.7-inch size to a tablet-like 7.4-inch size, When you slide down, it then retracts! isn’t that amazing? And the software interface adapts accordingly for optimal experience.
How “optimal”? Now you can comfortably perform multi-tasks with the extended screen. Like you can view a detailed tweet from the right column while at the same time scroll down all the tweets from the left column likethe video shows.
It’s even better if you view those e-commercesites like Amazon or my sponsor Geekbuying.com. Not only that, it offers a better video viewing experience, like when you put to landscape mode, the video size will be adjusted automatically without being interrupted, it’s seamless! Even in vertical mode, the ratio resizes perfectly.
Oppo added that the user can freely customizethe screen size, so you’re not just limited to either 6.7 inches or 7.4 inches. Hence the “continuously variable” label. So how Oppo X 2021 rolls? Simply put, the phone is essentially a motorized scroll,
The phone it self consists of a “2-in-1 Plate”body construction: these two parts roll out simultaneously and evenly for better structural support. And with this design, the OPPO X 2021 achieves an almost zero-crease result! Now you may wonder what’s the possible futurefrom this rollable technology.
Well, with this horizontal retractable mechanicalstructure, the phone will have a less compact internal structural space, so for example,the current lens modules can be switched to retractable lenses, thus achieve longer focallengths, and take better photos and videos.
The other is the speaker, the sound cavity can be made bigger and provide a better punchy bass those. The official OPPO staff told us that this”retractable” mechanism design even provides more possibilities for batteries and phone antennas. Let’s see! So, are you excited about this phone? Just know that this is a concept phone, sowe may never see an official release.
Even still there are some obvious questions we still want to look at here like thickness, the front camera and durability of the phone. But let’s still respect the spirit, and the courage that OPPO has presented to us today. Never settle! Oops, that’s OnePlus’s slogan. Anyway, you get what I mean.
