For many years, we have seen how the form of smartphones consolidated into an idea that ushered in the iPhone. A glass element, with a screen as the absolute protagonist and without elements that eclipse it, such as a hinge or a physical keyboard.
Some companies have tried to go further, like Samsung with the Galaxy Note, but it wasn’t until 2019 that companies like Samsung itself decided that the future of phones would fold.
OPPO presents a too perfect mobile
Besides Samsung, other companies have launched prototypes, such as OPPO and its 2021 OPPO X, a funky phone that we can’t wait to be announced.
Now it’s the turn of a new mobile arriving in the design phase, not as a prototype, and that’s what we liked least. The idea of OPPO is to offer a terminal which, when folded, does not take much more than a credit card.
For this I would use a hinge system that would allow it to be used with a 1.5 inch screen, with 3.15 inch or 7 inch screen. Of course, at all times we are talking about diagonals on screens with an unusually long ratio, as seen in the photographs.
On the other hand, the rear part would include four cameras, although there are no protrusions and complex hinge systems, which we already know to be very relevant in folding mobiles.
Also, the edges of the screen, the integrated stylus, the mechanical system that seems to feed the movement of the screen… everything is too vague to take it as anything other than a pretty idea.
We also wonder if it could technically be put into practice, what autonomy it would have since the thickness it offers does not seem to leave much room for the battery.
