OPPO x 2021: expandable screens are a reality
We have read a lot in recent months about new folding phones that did real tricks with their screens. At the end of the year we also reported a Xiaomi patent with roller fronts, and, a few months later, of the prototypes of the Chinese company TLC with this same system at the front. Even Motorola ventured to launch a mobile with an extendable screen, although in your case vertically.
But, almost all of this that we tell you, with the exception of Motorola, was speculation and evidence. In the case of OPPO it is totally official. Next year we will have available your first smartphone with an expanding screen And the first impression is really good.
Time to get hands-on in the experience zone! 👀
