Oppo’s clamshell phone is on its way with a 7” screen


Major phone manufacturers have been working on introducing a foldable smartphone in 2021. Xiaomi has already released the Mi Mix Fold, and reports from China claim Oppo is next. According to one leakster, the upcoming phone will be a clamshell and will bring a 7” foldable panel on the inside.

The phone will have an LTPO screen, which is still an OLED panel, but a bit more power-efficient, which is key for devices with such small form factors. The new Oppo is likely to be taller and wider than the Galaxy Z Flip and the Moto Razr devices, which could make room for a battery of around 3,500-4,000 mAh.

The device will also have a secondary 2” screen on the outside for quick notifications and hopefully some camera features and proper selfies. What we are yet to learn is the chipset of the device, any cameras and the actual launch date.
