Last week, Xiaomi unveiled its first foldable smartphone, the Mi Mix Fold. And now, according to insiders, gadgets with flexible displays are being prepared by two more Chinese manufacturers – OPPO and Vivo.
What to wait
The details were shared by an insider Digital Chat Station. According to him, OPPO will have as many as two models with displays with a diagonal of 7 and 8 inches. But they have the same form factor – in the form of a book with a design that folds inward.
The 7-inch model was reportedly close to mass production in January, so it should hit stores first. According to early leaks, the official announcement should be expected in the second quarter of this year.
We will remind, last year OPPO showed OPPO X 2021 (pictured) – a smartphone concept with a stretched OLED panel. But whether it will become a commercial product remains to be seen.
Vivo is also preparing a foldable smartphone. It is rumored to be an inward-folding device with 8-inch internal and 6.5-inch external screens. Most likely, the panels will be supplied by Samsung. The release date is still unknown.
