OPPO has just launched its "conventional" Android flagship phones for 2021. However, the prolific leaker Digital Chat Station now asserts it has something much more "interesting" to debut in this year's impending second quarter (2Q2021). This, apparently, will be its first-gen foldable-display phone.

Move over Find X3 series, your maker's first-gen flexible-display device is on the way. This (according to Google Translate) is the message to be gleaned from new Weibo post by the reliable tipster Digital Chat Station. However, fans of the possibility of a rollable phone revolution may be disappointed, as this 2Q2021 launch may not be for the innovative X, but for a foldable instead.

OPPO had presented an exciting, versatile concept device that could fold at multiple points, designed in conjunction with the Japanese studio Nendo, in late 2020. However, Digital Chat Station's new remarks offer no hint that the OEM's first-gen foldable will have anything in common with that prototype.

Nevertheless, its rumored debut may be a welcome addition to a market now projected to balloon in 2021. Should it really be that "interesting" compared to the Find X3 line, it may be capable of eclipsing other products, perhaps even those such as the Huawei Mate X2 - as indeed OPPO has recently outshone this foldable's OEM in the Chinese smartphone space.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
