Huawei released the third-generation folding screen smartphone Mate X2 not long ago. With the Kirin 9000 chip and the industry’s unique double-rotating drop hinge design, the phone was called “folding screen of the year”. However, the Huawei Mate X2 may soon see its first Chinese rival. Today, a Weibo blogger announced that OPPO’s first folding screen phone will be unveiled in Q2. This simply means that the phone will meet with the public as early as April this year.
Earlier some sources reported that Samsung Display is developing foldable OLED panels for other manufacturers, and will supply OPPO, Xiaomi, Google and other manufacturers. The mass production of machines will be within the year.
OPPO’s first folding screen phone will adopt a flip-up design that folds up and down. The screen size after unfolding is 7.7 inches, and the external screen size is between 1.5 and 2 inches.
It is worth mentioning that OPPO has previously shown a folding screen smartphone. The OPPO folding screen phone adopts an outer folding design, which can not only be used on both sides, but also becomes a larger screen after opening. The visual experience and operating experience are even better, close to the tablet.
Not only that, at last year’s OPPO Future Technology Conference, OPPO officially launched the OPPO X 2021 scroll screen concept machine, which uses a stepless OLED flexible scroll screen with a minimum of 6.7 inches and a maximum of 7.4 inches.
OPPO said that the big difference between the infinitely adjustable scroll screen and the current folding screen is that there are almost no creases.
With the maturity of flexible screen technology, mass production of folding screen smartphones has become a reality. In this year’s smartphone market, there may be a number of folding screen flagship phones to meet with consumers.
