Oppo X 2021 Rollable Display Concept Smartphone Showcased at Inno Day 2020 Event

Mobile companies are taking the technology to a whole another level. It was rumored that LG was working on a rollable phone, but Oppo outsmarted LG, and they teased their new rollable phone. The device is known as Oppo X 2021 and will make its debut in 2021. Oppo was always experimenting with mobile design, be it the rotating camera in Oppo N1 back in 2013 or the slide cameras in Oppo Find X. They never fail to amaze people.

Oppo first teased the device on November 16, followed by its launch on November 17 at the Inno Day tech event. A post teasing the new retractable display of the new Oppo phone was made by the company on Twitter and Weibo. In the Weibo post, they teased by saying, “Big screen? Small screen? Infinite screen? In the future, your mobile phone may be able to retract freely,”

After deep research and development of flexible displays, they finally were able to launch a new rollable display, which is a 6.7-inch OLED display and can be stretched to a maximum of 7.4 inches diagonally. The biggest wow factor in this device is the varying size of the display and also the zero-crease screen, which the other companies are still trying to achieve. Oppo mentions that there are 122 patents for this phone, of which 12 patents are made only for the screen alone.

Coming to the manufacturing part of the display, the company used three technologies of their own- the Roll Motor Powertrain, the 2 in 1 plate, and a Warp Track high-strength screen laminate. The roll motor drives the screen when it is being rolled out. The motors are made in a way that they maintain a constant force on both valves, making sure that the display isn’t damaged in the process.


When the screen is rolled out, the 2 in 1 plate ensures that the left and right sides of the screens are totally flat when extended. Last but not least, the WARP Track high-strength screen laminate that is 0.1 mm thick in size and is made of unique and extra strong steel sits right below the basic 6.7-inch display to ensure that the device remains resilient.

You can most probably view the screen in 16:9 and 4:3 formats. Furthermore, it seems there is some kind of switch or sliding switch on the side of the phone that activates the extended display.

Till now, no more details have been revealed since it’s only a concept phone, but we will update you about the device as soon as we get some leaks or official news.
