Therefore the 6.7-inch phone can expand up to a 7.4-inches screen as easily as you slide a window. It has an OLED panel that extends with the help of its 6.8mm Roll Motor. For this concept, the company has filled 122 patents of which 12 have been done for the scrolling machinery.

For additional protection, the company has also added a customised Warp Track is a 0.1mm laminate to protect the screen. However, the company did not reveal more about the internal and actual release of its concept phone Oppo X 2021 but it hopes to bring this technology at the right time.
