Oppo’s new phone concept, the Oppo X 2021, looks like an average phone at first glance, but offers a roll-up screen.

Normally the device’s screen is set to 6.7 inches, but in tablet mode the smartphone offers a screen up to 7.4 inches. With what Oppo calls a “continuously variable OLED screen,” the phone’s screen can be customized anywhere between 6.7 and 7.4 inches.
The roller shade can be adjusted by itself with a lever.
And in a demonstration showing technology, a video was resized to fill the screen. The phone can also do that with other applications like Twitter.
The device has a laminated screen that is placed on a ‘Warp Track’ and then uses a 6.8mm roll motor that places the screen in a compartment. In addition, the roller consists of a 2-in-1 plate with two parts that allow it to unfold simultaneously for better support.
Oppo also revealed smart glasses called ‘Oppo AR Glass 2021’. These are wearable augmented reality devices that Oppo says are 75 percent lighter than its predecessor, which was introduced last year. These smart glasses include stereo fisheye cameras for gesture recognition, as well as a time-of-flight sensor and RGB camera. They also connect directly to the Snapdragon 865-based Find X2 Pro smartphone with a USB-C cable.
