He exists! OPPO X 2021 - sliding screen smartphone

OPPO handsome. Taking off my hat.They already showed live pictures of this device some time ago. But it's one thing to make a cartoon. And a completely different thing - a working thing. By the way, I managed to forget about everything. You never know who shows what. And yesterday I was delving into new videos on YouTube and suddenly stumbled upon a fresh live “first sight”. And in amazement I watch how the smartphone gradually increases in size ...

You don't need to read about it, you need to see it.So here's the OPPO X 2021 live. First, the official video. Then - under the cut - Russian-language "first views" (only those that video, text are not so interesting). I put all the videos that are currently available. New ones, as usual, will, as they become available, be collected on the smartphone page on our website.

First glances

It is immediately necessary to clarify.Don't look for OPPO X 2021 on sale. And don't even wait. It is not a serial device. This is a prototype. But the prototype is perfectly working. With unfinished software, unfinished iron, a battery burning before our eyes. Not the point. It works, damn it!

The idea is great. And no miracles, just technology.The screen is thin. And flexible. If so, why not twist it right inside the case? More precisely, bend. It remains to make a slider case and place motors inside that will smoothly and gently move and move the case, twist and untwist the screen. Easy to say, difficult to do. But they did it!

The exact dimensions and dimensions of the device are unknown. But, judging by the video, when folded, it is not much larger than a smartphone with a similar screen diagonal. And, best of all, not much thicker.

Briefly about the currently knowncharacteristics of the prototype. OLED screen. The diagonal in the folded smartphone form is 6.7 ″ (approximately 20: 9), in the unfolded tablet form - 7.4 ″ (approximately 4: 3). The resolution is high, at 400 ppi. And even, it seems, the refresh rate is increased - 120 Hz.

The chipset is last year's flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage. The battery seems to be 4200 mAh.

We didn't bother with cameras. There is no front camera at all. Behind a single 12 MP module plus a pair of ToF sensors.

How long does it take to bring OPPO X 2021to mind and release on sale? What astronomical money will it cost? Is it realistic to make such devices inexpensive? And not too easy to kill? Unanswered questions. We wait. Time will tell.

And so - a chic form factor. I like it very much.
