OPPO X21

OPPO X 2021 is official! This is a new disruptive smartphone from the world’s fourth largest manufacturer of mobile devices, a brand present in UK, in rapid growth and now with the first scrollable, debatable, or extensible phone.

It is a bold format, escaping the rule of rectangular phones, or foldable phones from Samsung and Huawei. We are facing a very attractive new concept with a smartphone that can increase or decrease the size of the screen as needed.

OPPO X 2021 has arrived, the extensible smartphone!

In 2021, rollers – or extensibles – may become synonymous with cutting edge technology in the telephone market, much like folding.

The approach has been explored by TCL and more recently by LG with its “Rollable”, but it was OPPO that made known the first functional smartphone to explore this concept after CES 2021 where we saw its prototype.

The first manufacturer to show the world an extensible phone is OPPO with the new X 2021. It is a sample of the potential that this brand has to offer as it is also implemented in UK and makes itself known to the UK’s.

Although more manufacturers are working on this extensible screen concept, with Samsung, Huawei and LG in the running, this round belongs to the brand that boasts jade green.

Rollable or extendable? This is the new OPPO X 21

Above we see one of the units in circulation OPPO X 21 in a video narrated in French, noting also the effort of the Chinese manufacturer to assert itself in Europe. It is a dream come true, with the first prototypes to be revealed a few months ago and now we have functional units of the peculiar smartphone reaching the hands of some enthusiasts and youtubers.

We are facing a smartphone considerably thicker than normal, quite close to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold in its closed position. The new OPPO smartphone has a mechanism that extends or retracts the screen according to the user’s instructions.

6.7 or 7.4 inch screen on the new OPPO smartphone

In the closed position it has 6.7 inches diagonal and, when fully extended, totals 7.4 inches, assuming a more square shape. We transition from a smartphone experience to a tablet experience.

According to the Dongguan manufacturer itself, this model is ready, with the first models reaching the hands of the press and market experts. It was a rapid development and production of this innovative smartphone, with a few months separating the concept, the prototypes and now the real product.

The mechanism that slides the screen can be compared to the operation of an escalator, or rather, a treadmill on which it arises from the structure of the smartphone. It is a bold implementation that can shape the future of this market.

OPPO uses a screen made to measure and according to its guidelines so that the transition is unscathed. According to the working examples, the expansion and retraction of the panel occurs smoothly and without apparent flaws.

The animations (GIFS) show us not only the sliding or scrollable screen, but also the structure of the smartphone. We see that it extends and contracts according to the user’s needs, being maintained by the metal skeleton.

Then we see another one of the pre-production units in a dedicated video where its operation is naturally the object of all attention. Then we see that the opening or closing process is activated by double clicking the side button.

We can see that not only the body and screen of the OPPO X 21 are adapted to the user, but also the graphic interface of the smartphone. There is an automatic adjustment of the Color OS icons and elements (OPPO graphical interface) to the different formats.

Although the software is being finalized, it is certain that this transition and adjustment appears to be extremely fast and without any obstacles for the user.

See also, to the 1:30 minute of the video above, the slight creases observable on the smartphone panel.

The screen is reinforced from the inside so as not to collapse or deform when stretched and, later, when rolled up or stored in the phone itself. The smoothness with which the whole process takes place despite the mechanical barriers and challenges is notorious.

More specifically, OPPO uses a flexible OLED screen, mounted on top of a mechanism that can be compared to a treadmill, or treadmill. Opens and closes, or better, stretches and shrinks whenever the user wishes.

This is a vision of the future for the smartphone market, with OPPO leading the way.
