If you feel that foldable phones are futuristic and tech-smart, then it’s time to bring something new for you. The Oppo X rollable smartphone concept is the new future. Rumors about Rollable smartphones have been around for quite a long time now, but now we think that the idea of these rollable smartphones is taking a physical existence. We know that companies like TCL and LG have been playful around the idea of an extendable display on smartphones.
Oppo X Rollable Smartphone
Oppo in its Inno Day 2020 event unveiled the Oppo X 2021 concept smartphone. “Continuously variable OLED display” is the latest technology used to make this rollable smartphone. The smartphone changes its size from a regular 6.7 inch sized smartphone to a tablet like 7.4 inch size.
The prototype of the phone very smooth transitions between the two screen sizes and the display on the screen adjusts to the resizing itself, without collapsing. The size of the smart phone can be customized by the user. With just a single swipe, the smart phone can change its size. The company also claims that there are no cease lines visible on the smart phone as we see with the foldable smart phones.
Oppo has certainly used many different technologies in the making of the device. They are using a “Roll Motor” powertrain which has two different motors that help in the extending as well as retracting of the rollable smartphone. It is because of this “Roll Motor” powertrain that any sudden push or pull will not damage the display of the smart phone.
Along with the “Roll Motor” powertrain, Oppo is also using “Two in One Plate” technology which will help in the support of the display and protect it from collapsing.
The company is also using the “Wrap Track” technology. The Wrap Track is placed just under the moving screen area.
Apart from all the technologies being used in the rollable smartphone, we are not sure as to whether the screen has a protective glass or it has plastic as we saw in some early foldable like Huawei Mate and Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The launch date and price still not revealed by the company. It can be expected that the cost of the rollable smartphone will be very high because of its complicated manufacturing and the latest technologies. The rollable smartphones will definitely cost you a fortune. And this will not be a lie to that, in not much time, devices like these foldable smartphones and the rollable smartphone will make it to the mainstream markets.
Oppo AR Glass 2021
The Oppo company also announced the Oppo AR Glass 2021. The AR Glass 2021 will be a new version of the original model which was launched last December. The AR Glass 2 is lighter in weight than the original model. The company even claims the new model to be 75% lighter than the original model.
The headset comes with various features:
- Stereo Fisheye Camera
- Standard RGB Camera
- 3D ToF Sensor
- Interaction via Smartphone
- Gesture based interaction

You can also attach Oppo Find X2 Pro to the headset with a USB- C Type cable. You can watch local videos as well as online videos in the AR headset which are similar to the experience of the VR headsets. The “Birdbath” optical solution is used in the Oppo AR Glass which is said to mimic the experience of a 90 inch TV screen. The glasses will also support Oppo’s voice assistance: Breeno.
