Today OPPO has wanted to build muscle in a tremendously competitive industry such as smartphones by presenting a rollable mobile. The OPPO X 2021 It is a conceptual mobile while the company has not announced the date of arrival in stores, but several Chinese media have been able to test it and have published videos with those first impressions.
The roller mobile with motorized system
One of the things that has attracted the most attention of this mobile is that the opening system is not manual, as it was in the mock-ups of the TCL proposals that were made public months ago.
On the side there is a sensor that makes the screen expand or contract depending on how we slide our finger over it.
One of the few things that has not been seen is how the terminal adjusts to a specific content. As you can see in the following image, in the screenshot on the left the mobile is neither fully folded nor extended. That is perfect to open it just enough, depending on what we are doing.
A plastic screen
As expected, the material used in this screen is similar to that of the Huawei Mate X or the Samsung Folds since it has to be folded to be stored in the back of the terminal.
The reflections let us see that to the touch it could be similar to using a folding mobile but with a great advantage: there is no wrinkle or notch in the middle of the screen since it does not bend, but rolls up.
Of course, it is possible that over time the area that remains on the edge when it is closed could end up marking a certain shape, but at the moment there is no way to know.
Even the rear area is well designed, and does not show hinges, or elements of the structure that break the aesthetics.
Hopefully if this mobile is finally put on sale it will be exactly as OPPO has shown today.
The entry The first videos of OPPO’s rollable mobile are impressive, it appears first in The Free Android.
