And here is even another video showcasing the phone in a real life use case scenario.

According to 91Mobiles, The OPPO X 2021 employs a never-before-seen comb-like mechanism to support the display. Depending on the state of the display, the mechanism adjusts its position to ensure that the screen remains rigid at all times.

The smartphone’s frame has two parts, one fixed and one movable. Depending on the display’s position, the latter slides in and out along with the battery panel to protect its innards. These technologies are the reason why the OPPO X 2021’s screen is free from kinks or imperfections regardless of what state it is in.

Unfortunately, there are no words as regards to if this smartphone will be mass produced for commercial purposes, and even if it does, we don’t know when this will be, but it’s a good thing seeing different tech companies coming up with varying ideas as to how to stretch display sizes of smartphones without practically increasing their overall form factors.

We’ve seen what Samsung and Huawei are both doing with their various foldable smartphones, and we’ve seen various teases from the likes of Xiaomi and even TCL Mobile with its three step foldable smartphone.
