The OPPO X 2021 is the smartphone of the moment. In fact, it is still just a prototype presented by the brand at its last event and its main feature is its expandable screen. No folds, no creases… just a smooth glide that makes the screen larger and smaller.
The brand released the results of the stress tests. 100 000 rolling and unrolling movements have been achieved without ailments.
OPPO X 2021 - 100 000 rolling and unrolling movements were achieved without ailments
A few days ago OPPO announced an absolutely innovative smartphone concept on the market. Instead of the open and close design that Huawei and Samsung have both developed, OPPO has created a screen that expands.
Specifically, with a swipe up on the side, the screen unfolds and becomes larger. The opposite movement, therefore, returns it to its original size.
This concept, which has already been tested by hand at the event, is the OPPO X 2021. The closed OLED screen is presented with 6.7 ″ and open up to 7.4 ″ with FullHD resolution.
But this concept, which had everything to be fragile, apparently is proving to be more resistant than the models of opening and closing.
OPPO stated in a press conference, through Jin Xiang, product engineer, that the smartphone was subjected to tests of rolling the screen and the result was surprising. Thus, in 100,000 windings, the undamaged, which are quite encouraging results, for a model that is still only being designed.
There are still some obstacles in terms of construction that do not allow the brand to move forward with its launch, nor with a date for that to happen. According to some rumors, this could happen even only in 2022.
If that happens, OPPO could therefore lose the race as speculation is that LG and Samsung will launch similar models over the next year.
