OPPO seems to be planning to launch two foldables in 2022, and a rollable phone as well
He said that the OPPO Find N has been a great success for OPPO. The demand for that device exceeded expectations, and people are still trying to get their hands on one.
We’ve reviewed the Chinese version of the device, and it is really a great form factor, and OPPO did a great job with it. Well, two more foldable smartphones seem to be on the way.
OPPO is allegedly planning to announce a clamshell foldable, and a larger variant of the OPPO Find N. So, it is planning to throw out some competition for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3.
In addition to that, the company is also allegedly planning to announce a smartphone with a rollable display. OPPO is actually the first and only company that announced a rollable smartphone.
OPPO announced the very first rollable smartphone at the end of 2020
At the end of 2020, OPPO announced the OPPO X 2021. That device featured a rollable display, and it was a fully functioning phone. OPPO said that it’s not ready for mainstream, though, which is why it never sold it to consumers.
Earlier reports suggested that the first commercially-available rollable smartphone from OPPO will come next year. Well, it seems like that may happen this year after all. OPPO may even be the first company to offer a rollable smartphone to consumers. We’ll see.
Let’s just hope that the company plans to offer its foldable and rollable phones to consumers outside of China. The OPPO Find N is still not available outside of China, and at the time it launched, OPPO didn’t have any plans to make it available globally.
Samsung sure could use some competition, and truth be said, the OPPO Find N would be in a class of its own. That phone is small enough, when folded, to be used with one hand, while it unfolds into a tablet. It would be an ideal foldable for many people.
