Oppo at its Inno Day 2020 gave viewers a glimpse of the future of  the smartphone as it demoed the concept Oppo X 2021 machine. Surely the crown achievement of all its research on flexible display smartphones, the Oppo X 2021 in its most ideal form represents a device that does not compromise on quality while giving users the luxury of choosing between a large screen and a small one in one single device. Oppo had teased the demo of the Oppo X 2021 product just a day earlier and sure enough, it was the star of the show hogging all the limelight. Now, there’s a reason it is called Oppo X “2021”. It’s because we’re likely to see this on mass production only sometime in 2021. When that might be is still a question that needs to be answered by Oppo. For now, this is a concept phone just to look and marvel at. 

Oppo X 2021: Design, Concept

Talking about the design first, the demo units were quite surprisingly polished and looked awesome for just a concept device. The handset in its condensed form is a traditional candy bar form factor OLED display measures 6.7-inches which is quite big indeed. Press a button on the edge and the magic happens. The screen starts expanding horizontally (when you hold the phone in its traditional way)  until it gets as big as 7.4-inches. Obviously, the biggest positive of the design is the lack of any crease whatsoever. 

This brings us to the engineering aspect of that slide-out mechanism underneath the display. According to Oppo, it had to accumulate 122 patents among which 12 were core to this unique mechanism developed from the ground-up solely for the Oppo X 2021. It consists of three vital parts – Roll Motor, Dual-Matrix Clutch Structure, and a Warp Track Screen. 

The Roll Motor Powertrain is the driver that pushes the screen out and it has a 6.8mm scroll diameter. The Dual-Matrix Clutch Structure is a 2-in-1 Plate that has a comb-like internal structure for consistent durability in all the phone’s sizes and states. And lastly, the Warp Track Screen is a high-strength screen laminate that is 0.1mm thick at best. These combined offer, as far as what was visible, a very seamless and comfortable transition from a candy-bar form factor to a 7.4-inch tablet.    

It is worth noting that details regarding the concept phone are very scarce at the moment as Oppo didn’t really delve into it a lot. Moreover, being a concept phone, we don’t expect Oppo to put the Oppo X 2021 into production anytime soon. However, to even witness a flexible display concept of this calibre is without a doubt, breathtaking and talks volumes of the bright future we can expect on the months ahead.

Oppo AR Glasses 2021

Oppo also showed off its AR Glasses with a new split design, that makes it compact and light-weight. It is built with the Birdbath optical solution and offers 3D spatial localizations calculations within seconds. This results in an AR experience that is almost real-time. The AR Glasses 2021 support a number of natural interactions, including via smartphone and gesture-based interactions. The glasses also feature diverse sensors, including stereo fisheye camera, one ToF sensor, and one RGB camera.

All this hardware leads to a display (view) experience of 90-inches from 3-inches away. The AR Glasses 2021 are also just a concept right now but we look forward to hear more about it in 2021.
